Britney Spears opens up about the conservatorship she's been facing
Briefly News previously reported that Britney Spears broke her silence during a court hearing on Wednesday discussing her almost 13-year-long court-ordered conservatorship. Spears wanted an audience with Judge Brenda Penny to express her dissatisfaction with the deal.
The artist took part in the hearing remotely and talked for about 20 minutes, reading from prepared notes. She expressed how she felt about her life and the control her parents have on her.
She said she was compelled to perform, that she was denied privacy and that she was forced to use birth control, take medication and go to therapy sessions against her will, according to CNN.
"I deserve to have a life, I've worked my whole life. I deserve to have a two- to three-year break," said Spears, according to a report from BBC.
