WHAT IS CONSERVATORSHIP?
Under US law, conservatorship is the appointment of a guardian or a protector by a judge to manage the financial affairs and/or daily life of another person due to old age or physical or mental limitations.
BRITNEY SPEARS’S CASE
Britney Spears has been in conservatorship since 2008. Her father, James Spears, oversaw her personal and money affairs and maintained control over it. The case sparked debate and fans started a #FreeBritney campaign on social media. A New York Times documentary, Framing Britney Spears, was also made on the subject.
Today, on September 22, Britney Spears said in a court filing that she agrees with her father that the conservatorship that has controlled her life and money since 2008 should be terminated. James Spears asked the court to end conservatorship in a petition on September 7.
