Britney Spears Had A Birth Control Device Implanted In Her Against Her Will
| Last updated
Britney Spears has told her conservatorship hearing about the lengths it has gone to control her life, her career and her body.
The pop star told the court how the legal status has been 'abusive' and she wants her father Jamie and anyone else in charge of her to be sent to jail.
The 39-year-old has requested the judge end the conservatorship without an evaluation on her mental state and give her her life back.
She also opened up on how restrictive it has been on her life.
She told the court: "I want to be able to get married and have a baby. I was told with the conservatorship I was not able to get married and have a baby.
"I have an IUD in my body right now that won't let me have a baby and my conservators won't let me go to the doctor to take it out."
She also claims she was forced to take lithium against her will.
"You can go mentally impaired if you stay on it longer than five months. I felt drunk, I couldn't even have a conversation with my mom or dad about anything," she said.
Many people have been absolutely shocked about these clauses that have prevented her from starting a family with her boyfriend and thinking normally.
Britney went in on the other clauses of the conservatorship and how it has affected her mental health over the years.
She said: "After I've told the whole world I'm okay, it's a lie. I'm not happy and I can't sleep. I'm depressed. I cry every day. It's my wish and dream for all of this to end. I want my life back."
"All I want is to own my money...and for this to end...and for my boyfriend to be able to f**king drive me in his car. And honestly...I want to be able to sue my family.
"They've done a good job at exploiting my life, so I feel like it should be an open court hearing and they should listen to what I have to say.
"A lot has happened since two years ago, I don't think I was heard on any level when I came to court last time.
"I haven't done anything in the world to deserve this treatment. It's not OK to force me to do anything I don't want to do.
"I truly believe this conservatorship is abusive. There are thousands of abusive conservatorships. they need to be reminded that they actually work for me."
Many have sent messages of support to Britney as she continues to fight for her freedom.
The pop superstar's personal affairs and finances have been overseen by a court-ordered conservatorship - a legal arrangement usually reserved for the elderly or infirm - since 2008.
Spears was deemed unable to look after herself following a series of public breakdowns that were splashed across the press.
Her dad, 68-year-old Jamie, had controlled both aspects of his daughter's conservatorship until September 2019, when he stepped down from overseeing her personal affairs due to health reasons.
Spears has since tried to oust him from his role running her multimillion dollar estate - a position he shares with wealth management firm Bessemer Trust.
