‘I’m Not OK And I’m Not Happy’ Britney Spears Asks Court To Remove Her Conservatorship

Spears made her first public comments on her private life since the documentaries were released earlier this year.

Popstar Britney Spears gave rare public testimony on Wednesday and told a court she wants her conservatorship removed, giving emotional and heartbreaking accounts of her life the past 13 years.

The singer spoke remotely to Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Brenda Penny, her first public comments on her private life since the documentaries were released earlier this year.

“I want to end the conservatorship without being evaluated,” she said. “In the meantime I want this therapist to come to my home. I’m not willing to go to Westlake and be embarrassed by all these paparazzi.”

Spears claimed she isn’t allowed to get pregnant under the legal arrangement, which was put in place back in 2008, 2008, because her conservators won’t approve her removing her birth control.

“I was told, right now in the conservatorship, I’m not able to get married or have a baby,” Britney told the judge. “I have an [IUD] inside of myself right now so I don’t get pregnant.”

The 39-year-old has 15-year-old Sean and 14-year-old Jayden, from her marriage to Kevin Federline. Spears also claimed she’s been through various psychiatric evaluations and medications, which led to her being traumatized by her father through his control. 

She said she didn’t speak up publicly because she felt like no one would believe her.

“I haven’t been back to court in a long time, because I don’t feel like I was heard on any level,” Spears said.

Her testimony revealed truly heartbreaking moments of her life, which has led her to not do things everyone else can such as taking a break from work or getting married.

“After I’ve lied and told the whole world I’m OK and I’m happy … I’m not OK, I’m not happy, I can’t sleep,” she said.

She alleged that her father has punished her for not complying with his desires and was not aware that she could even request to end the conservatorship.

“Nothing has been done to this generation for doing wrong things, but my precious body who has worked for my dad for the past f——- 13 years, trying to be so good and pretty, so good. … I’m told the state of California allowed my ignorant father to take his own daughter — who only has a role with me if I work with him — they sat back and allowed him to do that to me?” she said. “That’s given these people I’ve worked for way too much control.

Spears alleges her previous therapist abused his power, management forced her to perform for years on end without a break and that she was forced into a $60,000 a month treatment facility by her father.

James “Jamie” Spears has been daughter’s conservator since 2008, after Spears’ public mental breakdown. Fans backed the singer on social media, creating the #FreeBritney campaign.

Mr. Spears denies that he has abused his position, saying he only has his daughters best interest at heart.

The court appearance comes on the heels of two documentaries. The first was “Framing Britney Spears”, released by New York Times on Hulu and the second titled “The Battle for Britney: Fans, Cash and a Conservatorship”, which aired on The BBC.

“I haven’t done anything in the world to deserve this treatment. It’s not OK to force me to do anything I don’t want to do,” she said.
