The singer Britney Spears, who has been under legal guardianship for more than 12 years due to her psychological condition, submitted a request through her attorney Tuesday to speak before the court looking into her case in Los Angeles, and next June 23 was set as the date for her hearing.
“Britney wants to go to court directly,” lawyer Samuel Ingham, the former representative of the pop star, told the court, without giving further details.
Britney Spears (39 years) lives under very strict provisions stipulated in a judicial agreement decided by a California court in 2008 after a significant deterioration in the psychological status of the star, which received widespread media attention at the time.
The guardianship-like agreement stipulates that decisions about the singer are made by her father, Jamie Spears. But Britney Spears’ lawyer recently asked a Los Angeles court to replace Jamie Spears with a professional will, who is currently collaborating with Britney’s father in managing her case.
Ingham, who was formally appointed by the court, said his client was “afraid of her father.”
This fueled the campaign # Free Britney (# Free Britney) organized by some of her fans on the street and on social media, because they were convinced that she was placed under guardianship against her will, and that she was sending coded distress calls through her account on «Instagram».

Britney Spears went through a long period of depression after her divorce from Kevin Federline in 2006, and her loss of custody of her children in 2007, during which several incidents were recorded, including being spotted barefoot at a gas station while shaving her hair.
