Is Britney Free?
For 13 years, Britney Spears has been held in a court-ordered permanent probate conservatorship controlled by her father, Jamie Spears, with the assistance of business manager Lou M. Taylor, entertainment managers Larry Rudolph & Jason Trawick, professional fiduciary Jodi Montgomery, and attorneys Andrew Wallet, Vivian Lee Thoreen & Samuel Ingham. Britney's conservators control her finances and her person; she is legally not her own person. Britney needs permission from her conservators to leave her house or spend any of her own money. Britney Spears's visits with her children have been limited by her conservators and ex-husband. She was only permitted to hire a lawyer of her choice in 2021.
The judge who initially approved the permanent probate conservatorship stated that it was for protecting her finances and businesses. The conservators maintain that Britney is too disabled due to dementia to feed, dress, and house herself despite an active career and personal life. During the thirteen years of Spears's conservatorship she has repeatedly toured the world, released multiple albums, and worked on a variety of television shows, proving herself to be a "high-functioning conservatee".
