Britney Spears declaring in court that she wants an end to her “abusive” conservatorship is only a first step.
Legal experts predict, once she petitions the court, there will be a drawn-out process to unwind the conservatorship. #FreeBritney may not occur for years to come – if at all.
Any one of her relatives could protest untangling the conservatorship. This would launch a new set of hearings, depositions and gathering evidence of Britney’s mental health and maturity. The family could keep their control over Britney throughout those lengthy proceedings. (Variety)
The director of the New York Times documentary, Framing Britney Spears cautioned followers of the singer’s social media. Samantha Stark said, (quote) “There are so many restrictions on Britney. It would be questionable to me whether she was running herself an account that speaks to millions of people around the world.” (Los Angeles Times)
