“I’m here to get rid of my dad and charge him with conservatorship abuse,” she said. “I want to press charges for abuse.”
Judge Penny thanked Spears for her testimony and made several rulings from the bench. She accepted the resignation of Spears’ former court-appointed lawyer Samuel Ingham and accepted the singer’s request that new lawyer Mathew Rosengart represent her going forward.
The judge also accepted the resignation of wealth management firm Bessemer Trust.
During a jaw-dropping June 23 statement to the court, the Toxic singer said that under her 13-year conservatorship, she was forced into labor, placed on lithium against her will, denied the right to remove an IUD to try for another baby and confined against her will.
“It’s been 13 years and it’s enough. It’s been a long time since I’ve owned my money, and it’s my wish and my dream for all of this to end without being tested.“She said it “makes no sense” for the state to deem her incapacity while watching her go on tour to make the millions of dollars that are converted into “a living for so many people,” she said.
“I shouldn’t be in a conservatorship if I can work and provide money and work for myself and pay other people,” she said.
The superstar said she wants the “real deal” going forward, meaning autonomy, another marriage and possibly a bigger family.
“I was told right now in the conservatorship, I’m not able to get married or have a baby. I wanted to take the IUD out so I could start trying to have another baby, but the so-called team won’t let me go to the doctor to take it out because they don’t want me to have children, any more children. So basically the conservatorship is doing me way more harm than good,” she said.
“I deserve to have a life. I’ve worked my whole life,” she said.
“I feel ganged up on, and I feel bullied, and I feel left out and alone. And I’m tired of feeling alone. I deserve to have the same rights as anybody does by having a child, a family, any of those things.”
