Britney Spears Set to Speak in Court on Her Conservatorship

SpearsIt seems like there is a new development in Britney Spears' conservatorship case nearly every day, which at this rate may be true. 

In the most recent development, Britney Spears has asked to address the court "to talk about the conservatorship that has controlled her life and finances for 13 years. . ." 

Spears' court-appointed attorney, Samuel Ingham III, said that Spears asked to speak to the court "soon" and agreed with Judge Brenda Penny on a date, June 23. 

Neither Spears nor Ingham III have stated what Spears plans to say or would like to say. 

Spears has not spoked in court in over two years, the last time being on May 10, 2019. What Spears said in the court in 2019 has not been made public. 

It is not clear whether the hearing in June will be open to the media or the public, but the Judge has the discretion to close the hearing to both. 

However, Spears and Ingham III have been pushing for more transparency in the proceedings, although Spears rarely attends the hearings. 

As has been the norm, more news regarding the June 23 hearing will likely reach the surface as the hearing gets closer.
