Britney Spears pleads for end to conservatorship

Britney Spears’s conservatorship case is heading back to court, three weeks after the singer condemned the system in a statement to a judge.

The hearing is taking place this Wednesday (14 July) in Los Angeles and will focus on handling the aftermath of Spears’s remarks.

In the weeks since her statement to the court, Spears’s court-appointed attorney has resigned, and the estate management company that was meant to oversee her finances has withdrawn from the conservatorship.

Spears isn’t expected to speak at today’s hearing, although she may participate in some form, since she has sought to pick her own attorney.

Following the court hearing on 23 June, Spears addressed her fans in an Instagram post.

“I apologise for pretending like I’ve been OK the past two years,” she wrote. “I did it because of my pride and I was embarrassed to share what happened to me … but honestly who doesn’t want to capture their Instagram in a fun light!!!! Believe it or not pretending that I’m OK has actually helped.”

Spears has reportedly secured a new attorney as part of her efforts to end the conservatorship.

Mathew Rosengart is expected to appear remotely during today’s hearing.

Rosengart, who also represents other celebrities including Ben Affleck, Sean Penn, and Steven Spielberg, is expected to argue that it is Spears’s constitutional right to choose her own lawyer:
