Let’s just say it outright, what Britney Spears has gone through in the last decade is something many should never have to endure.
Britney Spears’ ongoing battle for control of her life has moved from just being something that was talked about to the broader public’s attention. Let’s just say, we are saddened by this news and when we express that we mean, we are confused about what has happened to the universal human’s desire for freedom?
It seems as though, no matter how many headlines we see about it, her fight continues. So, here’s some background information for you.
Following her public breakdown in 2008, Spear’s was put into a conservatorship by her family, mainly ran by her father, Jamie Spears and another co-conservator power. Her father was granted the conservatorship by a Los Angeles court after Britney was struggling with mental health issues and was hospitalized. At that time, her father petitioned the courts for an emergency “temporary” conservatorship alluding to the fact that his daughter was temporary unable to take care of herself. But from there, her father was given legal rights to make decisions regarding Britney’s finances, health, business deals and even her personal life up until this point.
As of recently, Britney told the courts in a rare public testimony that she wants the conservatorship to end. Explaining that she has been traumatized by the people that have controlled her life for more than 13 years, Britney expressed in her hearing, “I’ve lied and told the whole world I'm ok, I'm happy, I’ve been in shock. I am traumatized," she said. "You know, fake it till you make it. But now I’m telling you the truth. Ok, I’m not happy. I can’t sleep."
This Mississippi girl needs her life back. Not only is she one of the most powerful pop divas of all time, but to think something was happening to her behind closed doors that was ran by her family is a true example about how money is the root of all evil. She has not had legal control of her life for 13 year’s, this is why we are all for the #FreeBritney movement.
