The American singer Britney Spears submitted a request through her agent to speak before the court looking into her case, as she has been under guardianship for more than 12 years due to her psychological condition.
The Los Angeles court set the date for next June 23 to be heard. The agent of the former pop star, lawyer Samuel Ingham, told the court that “Britney wants to go to court directly,” without giving further details.
Britney Spears (39 years) lives under very strict provisions stipulated in a judicial agreement decided by a court in California in 2008 after a significant deterioration in the psychological status of the star, which received widespread media attention at the time.
The guardianship-like agreement provides that decisions about the singer are made by her father, Jamie Spears. But Britney Spears’ lawyer recently asked a Los Angeles court to replace Jamie Spears with a professional will, who is currently collaborating with Britney’s father in managing her case. Ingham, who was formally appointed by the court, said his client was “afraid of her father”.
