Britney Spears’ mum Lynne Spears has shared that she worried after the hitmaker spoke out in court, reports claim.
The pop star, 39, appeared remotely at Los Angeles’ Court this week and it was the first time she has been heard in open court during the 13 years of her conservatorship.
The responsibility for her finances, and other areas of her life, lie with her father, Jamie Spears, after her mental health breakdown in 2007 under the legal arrangement.
Britney spoke directly to Superior Judge Brenda Penny about her life under the restrictions of the conservatorship and made several bombshell claims – that included that she’s unable to get married and have more children as she’s been put on contraception by her ‘team.’
Following Britney’s 23-minute testimony, Gladstone Jones, representing Lynne, said she his client is a “very concerned mother”, Vulture report.
Lynne’s legal representative also reportedly took time to speak to the court as he wanted the record to reflect that she supports Britney’s dreams of being freed from the conservatorship.
“I first want to say that was very courageous of Ms. Spears,” Jones said during the court proceedings, the publication report.
Jones continued: “One thing I want to raise with the court… is when she was there in May 2019 that she didn’t feel like she was heard. I feel we need to make sure today that she was heard.”
The lawyer also urged for arrangements to be made for a new health plan for the Stronger musician as he added: “Today is the day while the world watches while we listen to Ms. Spears … that we put in place a plan. That is her mother’s request. That we not leave the court without having a plan.”
In the court hearing, Britney claimed that her ‘team’ allegedly did not want her to get pregnant with another child. She has also alleged that she has been banned from marrying in the future.
Britney said: “I want to be able to get married and have a baby.
“I have an IUD inside of myself so that I don’t get pregnant, but [my team doesn’t] want me to have any more children.”
Britney has been in a relationship with 27-year-old personal trainer Sam Asghari since 2016 and he posted a selfie of him wearing a “Free Britney” t-shirt ahead of her appearance in court.
Last month, TMZ reported that Britney wanted to speak to judges to have her father removed from her business – while stating the star was happy for the conservatorship to remain in place without his involvement.
The site quote a source stating: “She has 99% of the freedom she’d have if she weren’t in a conservatorship, and the only thing she’s prevented from doing are crazy things, like buying 3 cars at a time [something she tried to do back in the day].”
The publication went on to state: “Britney is aware her life was out of control before the conservatorship was put in place, and it created a structure and also replenished her dwindling assets.”
They add a source confided: “She’s taken care of and she knows it.”
The singer is said to be worth a reported $60 million (£43.2 million) – with her father arguing she is vulnerable to fraud and manipulation.
