Britney Spears will appear remotely at conservatorship hearing

SpearsBritney Spears will appear at her next conservatorship hearing remotely—along with everyone else. 

On Monday the Los Angeles County Superior Court confirmed that "all parties, including Ms. Spears, are scheduled to appear remotely" for the June 23 hearing.

According to a press release, "[l]imited seating will be available in the courtroom and in an overflow courtroom with a live audio feed from the court." 

The June 23 hearing will be the first time Spears will address LA Superior Court Judge Brenda Penny. 

According to a source close to Britney Spears, her primary focus "is having her father, Jamie Spears, removed from the case." 

The source also said, "[s]he feels that ending the conservatorship entirely can always be discussed down the road, but right now the issue is Jamie."

Samuel D. Ingham III, Britney Spears' attorney stated that Spears was afraid of her father Jamie and "will not perform" going forward should he remain in charge of her career.
