Britney’s Courtroom Testimony
In June 2021, Britney spoke out about the conservatorship for the first time in court. During a hearing, Britney addressed the court directly, detailing the extent of the control that her father and others had over her life. Britney’s testimony was emotional and harrowing, with her describing the conservatorship as “abusive” and saying that she had been forced to perform against her will and to take medications that made her feel “drunk.”
Britney also expressed a desire to have more control over her life and to be able to make her own decisions about her medical care, her finances, and her personal relationships. The testimony was a turning point in Britney’s case, with many people expressing shock and outrage at the extent of control that she had been subjected to.
