Britney Spears says 'Free Britney' as judge denies request to remove Jamie
Britney Spears has opened up about feeling ‘completely hopeless’ and posted a fan holding up a ‘Free Britney’ flag after a judge denied her request to ‘immediately remove father Jamie’ from his role within her conservatorship.
The pop star’s lawyer, Mathew S Rosengart, requested an emergency hearing last week to review the status of Jamie Spears, who still oversees his 39-year-old daughter’s finances, despite her recent calls for him to be ousted from the position.
However, a one-page court filing in Los Angeles shows judge Brenda Penny denied the request to bring forward the hearing, meaning the potential suspension will be heard on September 29.
After it was confirmed the hearing would not be brought forward, Spears took to Instagram to tell fans they ‘only know half’ of what is going on.
Alongside a video of a fan with a #FreeBritney flag, she wrote: ‘Geez look at that flag !!!! I was like “My flag up over the American Flag !?!?” … Yes … I’m tooting my own horn .. is that bad ?????
‘I know in my previous post I said you guys know my situation but LET ME CLARIFY … you only know half of it !!!!’
The Toxic singer continued: ‘And for a lot of you who say I should be cautious with what I post … I mean if you REALLY THINK ABOUT IT … with what I’ve been through I believe I been WAAAY TOO CAUTIOUS !!!! One day I will live on the edge !!!! One day.’
Moments later, the chart-topper posted a cooking video as she revealed plans to step back from social media going forward.
The Stronger singer explained: ‘In a system where I’ve felt completely hopeless for so long, at least I do have a platform to share !!!! As Selena Gomez says it best – The world can be a nasty place … I know it … you know it … kill them with kindness ☀️☀️☀️ !!!
‘Unfortunately the news has been pretty nasty saying horrible and mean lies about me so I’m gonna post a little less from now on 🤷🏼♀️🤷🏼♀️🤷🏼♀️ !!!! Pssss this was the coolest thing I’ve ever seen in my life and it’s inspired me to take on a new passion in the cooking field !!!! God bless you beautiful people … TA TA 👋🏼 !!!!’
Spears’ life and career have been controlled by the court-ordered conservatorship since 2008 after she suffered a series of mental breakdowns.
Rosengart was formally announced as the singer’s new lawyer in July after she made a series of explosive claims against the complex legal arrangement that oversees her life, describing the conservatorship as ‘abusive’ during a June 23 hearing.
Mr Spears’ legal team recently hit back at Rosengart’s request to have him removed from his role, arguing there are ‘no grounds whatsoever’ to do so.
Mr Rosengart ‘does not (and cannot) specify what the wrongdoing is’ to prompt such a suspension, they argued according to a recent court filing.
2019 saw Mr Spears, 69, step down from overseeing his daughter’s person in 2019, citing ill health.
He was replaced on what remains a temporary basis by court-appointed professional Jodi Montgomery. However, the two have recently clashed over their respective roles.
