Britney Spears’ conservator-ship case returns to court after documentary release.
Although the “Oops!…I Did It Again” singer is not expected to appear, Thursday’s court hearing in Los Angeles serves as the first since the release of the “Framing Britney Spears” documentary which sparked renewed interest in the Spears’ conservatorship battle.
The conservatorship — a legal guardianship giving her father, Jamie Spears, control over her finances and everyday life — sparked the “#FreeBritney” movement with fans calling for her to be released from the legal agreement.
Spears has been under the conservatorship since 2008 following the singer‘s viral 2007 meltdown that showed her taking an umbrella to a paparazzi’s car. In the New York Times documentary, “Framing Britney Spears,” subjects explain the appointed conservators have control Spears’ finances, travel and mental health care, among other areas of her life.
