Britney Spears will get a chance to speak directly to the court about her ongoing conservatorship case.
A request was made on her behalf by the superstar’s court-appointed attorney, Samuel Ingham, and was accepted by Judge Brenda Penny at a hearing this morning.
Britney’s been under the court-approved conservatorship for the last 13 years and she’s made it clear she no longer wants her dad, Jamie, to act as her conservator.
Last year, the judge appointed a third party known as Bessemer Trust, to be a co-conservator but that’s still up in the air with both sides not able to agree over the conservatorship’s governing language.

There’s been a lot of talk about Britney’s well-being since the Framing Britney Spears documentary came out earlier this year. The film not only looked at her lack of decision-making powers when it comes to her finances but also the horrific way she’s been treated by the media over the years, renewing calls on social media to #FreeBritney.
The singer did recently share a video on her Instagram letting fans know she’s doing well though:
“I’m extremely happy. I have a beautiful home, beautiful children. I’m taking a break right now because I’m enjoying myself.”
Britney’s due to address the court on June 23 – and a little reminder, anything you read right now about what she’s going to say is …well ….BS. We don’t know what she’s going to say. Nobody knows yet. Except maybe her lawyers. But certainly not the tabloids.
