Britney Spears Wants Her Conservatorship to End

Nearly 15 years after the head-shaving drama, at 39 years old, poor Britney Spears still can’t catch a break. For years, the hashtag #freebritney has been going around social media. It refers to the conservatorship that she’s been trapped in, where her dad has essentially controlled her life for 13 years.

She told a judge in LA that she just wanted her life back, after feeling traumatized and crying every day. Most recently, the conservatorship has gotten in the way when she wanted to have another child, and was denied the right. She was also put on lithium, a powerful psychiatric drug, against her wishes.  The lithium made Brit feel drunk and unable to converse.

In 2008, Britney Spears’ father was given total control over her affairs in 2008, by a court order.  A conservatorship is granted by a court, for people who are unable to make their own decisions. This is usually for people with mental illnesses or dementia. Britney Spears’ conservatorship is split into her estate and financial affairs, and for her as a person. Due to it, she hasn’t controlled her finances for years.

This was done after the celebrity was placed in the hospital over mental health concerns. Even though Spears has long since recovered from her troubles of decades past, it’s been extended up until now, for no good reason at all.

This situation has caused outrage for human rights activists and feminists all over. As a child, Britney was sexualized and forced to grow up fast, which obviously had a poor effect on her mental health and was pushed on her by record executives and the music industry.
