As Conservatorship Hearing Approaches, Britney Spears Says Week Ahead Will Be 'Very Interesting'

Just days away from an important court date, Britney Spears says she hasn't "prayed for something more in my life” as a judge weighs whether to terminate the conservatorship she's lived under for 13 years.

As a pivotal conservatorship hearing for Britney Spears approaches, the pop legend has expressed excitement about what could happen.

“This week is gonna be very interesting for me!!!” Spears, 39, posted on her Instagram on Monday along with a giggling emoji.

A hearing has been scheduled for Friday to discuss her conservatorship. It's possible the proceeding could result in the full termination of the conservatorship that has constrained the “Overprotected” singer for 13 years, the New York Times reported in September.

“I haven’t prayed for something more in my life!!!” Spears wrote on Monday. “I know I’ve said some things on my Insta out of anger and I’m sorry but I’m only human … and I believe you’d feel the same way if you were me”

While she has largely remained tight-lipped about her personal feelings during the conservatorship, she has been outspoken since summer, calling the arrangement "abusive" during a June court hearing. She told the court that at one point during the 13 years since the conservatorship had been established, she had been placed in a psychiatric hold against her will. She also alleged that she was forced to perform live, at times while ill, take lithium, and was told she could not get her IUD removed. 

“I want to sue my family,” Spears told Los Angeles Judge Brenda Penny in June. 

Since then, Spears has been vocal about her anger toward her family in social media posts.

In late September, Los Angeles Judge Brenda Penny suspended her dad Jamie Spears, 69, as his daughter’s conservator of estate. Before 2019, Jamie was also Britney’s conservator of person.

Jamie has recently done an about-face on the arrangement, going from maintaining the conservatorship is absolutely necessary to his new stance that it needs to be ended quickly and quietly. His legal team recently requested the arrangement be terminated immediately, ahead of the Friday hearing. Britney’s lawyer Mathew Rosengart has expressed suspicion regarding Jamie’s flip as he argued in court in September that Jamie's desire to terminate the arrangement is motivated by a desire to dodge any accountability for any mishandling or abuse. Penny approved Rosengart’s request for court review and termination of the conservatorship within 30 to 45 days that month. Rosegnart then transferred the conservator of estate role from Jamie to a temporary conservatorship to allow Rosengart to investigate Jamie's behavior during his 13 years of involvement in the conservatorship.

In the weeks leading up to the hearing on Friday, Rosengart has requested Tri Star Sports & Entertainment Group — which was run by Britney’s former manager Lou Taylor — provide all communications and documents of agreements between Jamie and the company.
