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, attorneys Andrew Wallet & Samuel Ingham, and professional fiduciary Jodi Montgomery. Britney's conservators control her finances and her person; she is legally not her own person. Britney Spears has been blocked from having custody of her children and was only permitted to hire a lawyer of her choice in 2021. Britney needs permission from her conservators to leave her house or spend any of her own money.
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.
