New hearing after Britney case fallout


A LOS Angeles judge and several other people with legal powers over pop star Britney Spears were due to convene for a hearing to deal with the aftermath of her dramatic speech condemning the conservato­rship that has controlled her life for 13 years.

Spears’ remarks led to the resignatio­n of her court-appointed lawyer, the withdrawal of an estate-management company supposed to oversee her finances, and accusation­s between her father and a profession­al conservato­r over who is to blame for the legal circumstan­ces Spears said are “abusive”.

Spears said she was being forced to take medication and use a birth control device. She added that she was not allowed to marry her boyfriend, and said she wanted control of her own money.
