The father of Britney Spears convinced the court in 2008 to establish a conservatorship by claiming, (quote) “Dementia patients do not go on world tours.”
Britney supposedly having “dementia” at age 26 is just one of several bombshell revelations in the BBC documentary The Battle for Britney.
Journalist Mobeen Azhar described why Jamie Spears may have said that Britney had a broken brain, (quote) “Britney might have dementia, but the world was never aware of that. The other option is sinister. That’s the idea that she doesn’t have dementia, but they suggested it because they want to push the conservatorship through.”
Her post-conservatorship lends credence to Britney being dementia-free. Since 2008, she went on four worldwide tours, released four albums and performed in Las Vegas a total of 248 times. (The Sun, UK)
