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.
