Rep Matt Gaetz Is at the Britney Spears Conservatorship Hearing and Just Called Her Dad a ‘D—’ (Video)

Pop star will ask to choose her own lawyer in court on Wednesday

Spears is expected to ask the court to appoint her own lawyer on Wednesday following the resignation of her court-appointed attorney Samuel D. Ingham III.

Spears’ conservatorship dates back to 2008, around the time of her very public mental health struggles. After losing custody of her two children to former husband Kevin Federline and then refusing to turn over her boys after a visit, Spears was hospitalized and placed on a 5150 psychiatric hold, beginning the conservatorship under her father, Jamie Spears. 

The pop star is actually under two conservatorships: a conservatorship over her estate, which focuses on financial matters, and a conservatorship over her person, which grants the conservator control over her medical and personal decisions. 

Last month, she spoke out publicly for the first time about the conservatorship at a hearing in the Los Angeles probate court.

“I just want my life back,” Spears said at the hearing. “And 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.”
