Britney Spears has asked a high court in Los Angeles to end her father’s tutelage. She is supported by fans and friends.
Britney Spears was placed under guardianship in 2008. A court in Los Angeles ruled that, due to mental problems, it was unable to independently decide on personal and professional matters, and to custody over assets worth $ 60 million. The singer’s father, Jamie Spears, took care of the singer.
After 13 years, the artist decided to openly fight for her independence. She asked a higher court to end her guardianship. She admitted that she was exploited and deprived of privacy and forced to use contraceptives and lithium.
– A father loves the control he is given to harm his own daughter. I was working seven days a week, it was like sex traffic. I didn’t have a credit card, cash or passport. All I want today is to get my money and let it end once and for all – she said. Britney admitted that she pretended in front of the world that she was happy when she was really suffering, depressed. She asked for freedom to be restored. He wants to sue the family “for the way they have been treated.”
Jamie Spears’ attorney Vivan Lee Thoreen delivered a statement from her client. – He is sorry to see his daughter suffering and in so much pain. He loves her and misses her very much.
The discussion about Britney Spears’ mental health has been going on for several months. Fans and relatives of the singer claim that Jamie Spears extended probation and imprisoned his daughter against her will. Interest in the case increased when the documentary “Framing Britney Spears” was released, about difficult moments and the life of the princess of pop. The hashtags #FreeBritney and #WEARESORRYBRITNEY have gained popularity.
In social media, the singer is supported by stars. – Regardless of our past, good and bad, and no matter how long it was … What’s happening to her isn’t right. No woman should be restricted from making decisions about her body – wrote Justin Timberlake. Mariah Carey added: – We love you, Britney. Be brave.
The next Britney Spears court hearing is scheduled for July 14th.
