Britney Spears spoke her truth.
The 39-year-old singer appeared remotely to address a Los Angeles judge on Wednesday for the latest hearing on her conservatorship. Britney called out her father, Jamie Spears, and alleged that the conservatorship holds her back from living her life.
The pop star expressed that she would like nothing more than “to end the conservatorship without being evaluated,” as well as regain control of her life, have a therapist come to her home instead of going to a doctor’s office and more. Britney also shared a slew of shocking allegations against both her father and her team.
Following Britney’s claims, Jamie’s attorney said in a statement to the judge, “He is sorry to see his daughter suffering and in so much pain. Mr. Spears loves his daughter and misses her very much.”
Britney has been under a conservatorship since 2008, with Bessemer Trust Co. currently serving as a co-conservator alongside Jamie. Here are the biggest bombshells from Britney’s testimony.
Britney Thinks Her Dad Should Go to Jail
Britney stated that her father and “anyone involved in this conservatorship and my management, who played a huge role in punishing me when I said, ‘No ma’am,’ they should be in jail.”
The singer explained how celebrities in this generation can get away with “cool tactics” like smoking onstage and “doing wrong things, but my precious body, who’s worked for my dad for the past f**king 13 years, trying to be so good and pretty, so perfect when he works me so hard when I do everything I’m told, the state of California allowed my ignorant father to take his own daughter, who only has a role with me if I work with him, they set back the whole course and allowed him to do that to me.”
She claimed that the conservatorship has “given these people I’ve worked for way too much control.”
Britney alleged that they “threatened me” and if she refused to do anything, they told her to, “Then I have to go to court and it will be more embarrassing to me if the judge publicly makes scope the evidence we have, you have to go.”
Britney Claims She Was Put on Lithium
The singer claims that those in charge of her conservatorship dictated her career moves, and that when she expressed a desire not to continue her Las Vegas residency, she allegedly received a drastic change in medication from her therapist.
“Three days later after I said no to Vegas, my therapist sat me down in a room and said he had a million phone calls about how I was not cooperating in rehearsals and I haven’t been taking my medication. All of this was false,” Britney alleged. “He immediately, the next day, put me on lithium.”
“Out of nowhere, he took me off my normal meds I’d been on for five years,” she claimed. “And lithium is a very, very strong, and completely different medication compared to what I was used to.”
She said that, after the new medication treatment, she “felt drunk” and she didn’t feel she could confide in her parents with her concerns.
“I couldn’t even have a conversation with my mom or dad really about anything. I told them I was scared and a doctor had six different nurses with this new medication, come to my home, stay with me to monitor me on this new medication,” she alleged, “which I never wanted to be on to begin with.”
Britney Claims She Was Traumatized by Rehab
Britney also claimed that she was sent to a small rehabilitation program in a home in Beverly Hills that left her “traumatized.” She alleged that she was told she had to pay $60,000 a month and “cried on the phone for an hour” while Jamie “loved every minute of it.”
“The control he had over someone as powerful as me, as he loved the control to hurt his own daughter 100,000 percent,” she claimed to the judge, comparing her situation to sex trafficking. “I packed my bags and went to that place. I worked seven days a week, no days off, which in California, the only similar thing to this is called sex trafficking. Making anyone work, work against their will, taking all their possessions away, credit card, cash, phone, passport, car and placing them in a home where they work with the people who live with them.”
She detailed how she was under 24/7 security, with nurses and a chef. She also alleged that “they watched me change every day naked, morning, noon and night. My body, I had no privacy door for my room.”
Britney told the judge that while in rehab, she was allegedly told if she didn’t do any of the meetings or work “from eight to six at night, which is 10 hours a day, seven days a week, no days off, I wouldn’t be able to see my kids or my boyfriend.”
Britney Says She’s Not OK
After detailing her rehab experience, she admitted that she’s not OK and “not happy.”
“I’ve lied and told the whole world I’m OK, and I’m happy. It’s a lie,” she candidly expressed. “I thought, just maybe if I said that enough, maybe I might become happy because I’ve been in denial. I’ve been in shock. I am traumatized. You know, fake it till you make it. But now I’m telling you the truth, OK. I’m not happy. I can’t sleep. I’m so angry, it’s insane and I’m depressed. I cry every day.”
Britney Wants to Get Married, Have More Kids
The singer also told the court that she wants to have more autonomy over her own body and her reproductive rights.
“I want to be able to get married and have a baby,” said Britney, who also expressed her frustration at how the conservatorship has limited her ability to have a normal relationship with her boyfriend, Sam Asghari. “I was told right now, in the conservatorship, I’m not able to get married or have a baby.”
“I have an [IUD] inside of myself right now so I don’t get pregnant,” she said. “I wanted to take the [IUD] out, so I can start trying to have a baby.”
However, Britney claimed, “But this so-called team won’t let me go to the doctor to take it out, because they don’t want me to have [more] children.”
“I’m tired of feeling alone. I deserve to have the same rights as anybody does by having a child, a family, any of those things,” she added.
