American Singer, Britney Spears, 37 speaking at a court hearing in Los Angeles stated that she is traumatized and wants her life back as she alleges that her father drugged her and forced her to be on birth control against her will.
She said her father Jamie Spears controlled her “100,000%,” but wants her life back.
“I am traumatised,” she said, speaking remotely. “I just want my life back.”
During the hearing, fans outside held placards reading Free Britney and demanding the ruling be axed.
Jamie Spears was granted control over his daughter’s personal and business affairs in a court-ordered conservatorship in 2008. The order was originally granted after the star was put in hospital amid concerns over her mental health.
“I want to end this conservatorship without being evaluated,” Spears told the court decisively in an emotional 20-minute address on Wednesday, calling the arrangement “abusive”.
“I deserve to have a life, I’ve worked my whole life. I deserve to have a two to three-year break,”
Britney said she wanted to marry her boyfriend and have a baby, but the conservatorship would not allow her to. She accused her conservator of stopping her from having a contraceptive intrauterine device (IUD) removed so she could get pregnant.
“I was told right now in the conservatorship, I’m not able to get married or have a baby,” Spears said. “I have an I[U]D inside of myself right now so I don’t get pregnant. I wanted to take the IUD out so I could start trying to have another baby, 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 children, any more children.”
“I felt drunk. I couldn’t even stick up for myself. I couldn’t even have a conversation with my mom or dad about anything. I told them I was scared and they had six different nurses come to my home to monitor me while I was on this medication that I didn’t want to be on to begin with.”
“This conservatorship is doing me way more harm than good,”
