  2. Rising Youtube star SL04N comes through with receipts (thanks to Britney Hiatus), and exposes Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Reva Goetz in a new video. Goetz (pronounced Guts) is the person who took away Britney's freedom in 2008, after approving a completely bogus "dementia" diagnosis, effectively sanctioning the conservatorship. The video is ruthless in its expose of Goetz, known for having a not so honourable track record, she's described in online evaluations as "extremely unprofessional," and "disgusting....who lacks any form of integrity or ethics". Ouch! As well as hosting an event with Jamie Spears' ex-bumchum Andrew Wallet called "Conservatorships for the High Profile Public Figure, Does it Work?", the pair were also seen attending the Femme Fatale tour together (according to attorney Katerina Perreault, who used to work for Wallet's law firm). No doubt they bopped along to "Gimme More" and "Toxic", for sure their go-to anthems. Goetz also took part in hosting a training event with non other than Samuel D. Ingham, Britney's current representative in court, appointed by you guessed it, Goetz herself. It's a small world in Britney's legal domain.

  3. Hey guys, Disclaimer: This is gonna be very long! I've been an exhale user for ages but the last time I was active was around 10 years ago, since then I've just been lurking around reading Britney news. But I've just finished watching the Deep Dive documentary, and I really want to vent my emotions and share some thoughts that I just cannot hold inside of me (not a big social media user, so this is as good a place as any, so bare with me). I know this forum is not really the place for long discussions, so if you don't care about my thoughts, just pass by, don't be mean I've been a Britney fan since the beginning, when I was a kid a few years younger than her. When I think about it now, I can thank Britney for most things that I appreciate about myself as a person today - speaking English (I learnt the language singing along), making music, being comfortable in my womanhood. Most of all, she gave me comfort when I needed it most. Between the Britney and ITZ eras I stopped religiously following her as I was coming of age, my music tastes broadened, I got more into indie stuff (which is a testament to the quality of Britney's music, despite what most people think about her as an artist - I grew up on her music, and it instilled a very good music taste in me). But when I was going through a bad breakup, already as an adult, in around the Circus era, I needed the comfort of her music again and started inquiring about her life and registered here. This was the introduction into my Britney story. Now thoughts on the whole breakdown/conservatorship situation. In 2007-2008, I read some news about what was going on in her life back then, distantly, and it truly shocked me. But not why you'd think. Now, it might be that I live in Europe and here we are more chill about this stuff, but I truly, really truly did not understand what the big deal about her behavior was. I started reading all these articles in American media how she's crazy, how she's an addict etc - you know what I mean. But when I actually inspected what she was up to, I just couldn't see anything that a normal 20-something person wouldn't do. Especially in her position, surrounded by these crazy paparazzi, during the divorce. I just couldn't understand what was so crazy about her? To this day, it baffles me. I watched this DeepDive documentary, and everything that they showed - I still think there was nothing wrong with her behavior, considering the circumstances. Is it an American thing? I truly don't understand. So this brings me to my next thought - why on earth would she need a conservatorship in the first place? I know that many of you say that it was "necessary" back then but not anymore. But in my opinion (acknowledging my limited knowledge and our lack of access to medical data, so this is pure speculation based on years of observation), nothing that she did, the "crazy things", would require such a drastic measure. We have this procedure of guardianship in my country as well, and a friend of mine put one on his elderly schizophrenic father who cannot even bathe himself. But what I couldn't understand then, and can't understand now, is how all her actions - to me, they seemed very normal, healthy reactions - could lead to this. I thought it was an abuse back then and still think this to this day. So she partied, so she drank, so she took a few drugs (allegedly), I'm sorry, but who didn't? Kids in college in the US do so many much worse things. Personally I had already quit drinking and smoking by my sophomore year, which gives you an idea on when I had started. And her motherhood "incidents" were also ridiculously mistreated - all parents mess up somehow, it's just a matter of time, and most babies are just lucky to survive our incompetence. Finally, although I've always known it, but after seeing this documentary in one sitting, I have to point out the narcissistic abuse Britney suffered from her father and possibly others. I am currently coming out of an 8 year abusive toxic environment at my workplace with a narcissistic psychopathic boss. Only after three years of therapy, I was able to quit the horrible job in politics (where narcissists thrive, just like in showbiz) and see the gaslighting I've been subject to for years. I am talking about it because I am seeing a lot of posts here and elsewhere asking why Britney doesn't speak up, or why her instagram is so weird. I'll tell you why. Manipulations that narcissists are capable of are just insane. Her father, an alcoholic, is a textbook narcissist - controlling, abusive, manipulative. For years, I couldn't quit my job because my boss manipulated me into thinking that if I quit, the whole organization will go down and over 50 people will lose their jobs because of me. The boss also made sure that whoever quit on their own couldn't get another job in this sector, showing me what they will do to me if I, the closest confidante, will quit. And I truly believed that in my gaslighted mind. I know the word now, but for years, I just thought I was losing my mind, going crazy, because someone was constantly telling me the reality is not real. Now, I can only imagine the scale of this manipulation when it's not just about some coworkers and friends but about your own kids. And you might think that he is doing it for the money. Maybe his allies and enablers are. But I think he truly believes that he is saving her. Knowing this kind of abuse from inside out, studying it now for over a year, I am almost sure that he thinks that everybody owes him, that he's the true victim and that without him she's nobody. And these are the kind of thoughts that he has made her think for years, gaslighting, diminishing her, making her feel devalued, second-guessing herself, shaming her for her supposed "sins". I've only dealt with this for a couple of years, and in a workplace - and I am still pretty damaged. Imagine that on a whole different level, and with the pressure of the whole world looking. I don't think that her instagram is weird. I think it is not weird enough, after everything. Her anxiety is a very normal psyche reaction, as a coping mechanism. To think that she was able to work so hard and so well after and during all this is just extraordinary for me - I am lucky if I can get out of bed at all, as of now. I think she had the healthiest possible reactions to the events of her life, to people taking advantage of her goodness and kindness. Kindness is a modern sin. So there are my thoughts. Sorry for the long read. I would appreciate a discussion and, perhaps, an explanation of how exactly such normal actions and reactions by a 20something year old woman be perceived as crazy. I just can't wrap my head around it. btw, the best source describing manipulation techniques that these people use is the channel of Dr Ramani on youtube - I think it would be great to ask her to do a video on Britney's situation, she talks about TV shows sometimes: https://www.youtube.com/user/DoctorRamanDurvasula. She explains very well why children of narcissistic parents are magnets for abusers, especially when they are empathic like Britney is. Please be kind
  4. The fourth part premiered!!! (link below) It's seriously a Netflix quality documentary. Done so well!! You can show people (even non-fans) to display her career and what tragedy happened to her in Life!! Part 1: Uncovering Britney's dark past (1983 - 2006) Britney's childhood, career beginnings and turn in the media. Part 2: Losing a Pop legend to the Media in 2007 (2007) Disclaimer: Very unsettling and an emotional rollercoaster! Only for the faint hearted!! (2007 compressed in 45 minutes💔) PART 3: The exact moment Britney lost her freedom | The conservatorship it's 1:30 h minutes because the makers supposedly had too much material to cover and they announced part 4 due to that! - WATCH BEFORE LOU FILES DEFAMATION AND TAKES IT DOWN It's all in a good way and describes the exact timeline and how they trapped Britney and the conservatorship was implemented. 2 critc points: - Femme fatale was a success but we as fans knew something was off, whereas in the documentary it isn’t mentioned and is hailed as a successful era and a well put together Britney - Accusation of Jason Trawick abusing Britney and radar online clips to support that claim. (Those clips are fake as hell) Part 4: Britney sent warning signs for over a decade | the control According to the maker of the series there is so much more information they need to cover and announced to extend it and make it a 6 part series. Special guest appearance in part 4 by @jordanmiller I request someone to download all parts just in case Lou’s targets it and takes it down. This is too valuable and the best documentary about Britney made. starting to watch it now!!
  5. Update: The following text that's crossed out is defamatory and false according to a demand letter from Lou Taylor: Courtney Love was almost placed in a conservatorship by the same people who put Britney Spears in one, and she says it nearly killed her. A user on Instagram asked: “Is it true that Lou Taylor – who planned the conservatorship for Britney with her father – wanted to put you in a conservatorship too?” Courtney replied, “Short answer is yes. Lou did try. for a mutated strain of a conservatorship. She and the ‘jeryls’ made an attempt to control kurts name and likeness and all nirvana songs (96 per cent). Then sell the publishing, by which time I’d be in a conservatorship or more likely? Dead.” “I was successful at blocking only Lou, that’s just because I chant a lot which makes me lucky. But, not her buddies. I just looked at Britney’s account. There’s no point in sticking my neck out for her now, her pack of wolves almost killed me and my only child,” she continued. Courtney added that Britney “looks damaged, fu**ed up for life.” Courtney had a platonic relationship with Britney's former manager Sam Lutfi for years as well. “I just got away from (Sam) lutfi after 8.5 hellish years. Bad as he is? He doesn’t hold a candle to those people,” Love said. “I’ve tried to lobby attorneys for years with a glimmer of humanity to take on Spears situation and they always p***y out,” she continued. “And frankly I’m done with it.” Courtney added she knows “more about the Spears case than almost anyone there is. There was a time I’d have told you anything. Everything”. “It’s one of the worst things I’ve ever seen done to another woman and trust me I’ve seen it all,” she continued. “But I’m OK now in Europe recovering from a near death illness that probably happened due to the stress of out maneuvering those ***holes for pre-Britney, 25 some years … we finally have a manager they’re all scared of and we are safe. I’m OK and most of all frances is OK. I’m not dragging us though the PTSD and trauma that Lou's name brings up in me.” She finished with: no one can do that to us again”. “In exchange for that security. I don’t get to talk about the particulars. I’m keeping the security. I’m sorry but I can’t help you further [email protected] Britney ‘expose’ was a lazy farce. If that’s all there is for justice? **** it. I’ll make my own government. And do as I’m told.” Related:
  6. I know some of you have your reservations about supporting a single when Britney herself is refusing to perform or do any career work until her father is not involved in her finances, but there are a few points I believe we should consider: Previously Unreleased. This is not a newly written or recorded song, which means all production costs have already been expended. She’s already foot the bill for the song, there’s no harm in releasing. Bessemer Trust. They’ve been newly appointed as co-conservators so we should be optimistic that they will properly handle Britney’s finances and treat her fairly in this situation. When songs are released, typically the label is first to be paid and then they give artists their percentage. My thought process is that because this is how it’s always been, by supporting the song the label sees that Britney the artist is still being supported. (This applies to her music in general; maybe moreso than with “SITS” since it’s partnered with Urban Outfitters) and then when Britney is compensated, we continue to hope that Bessemer handles her finances in accordance. No need to promote. Britney can continue to not take on work projects and still receive support. We are her fans. We are the Britney Army. I understand not wanting to “feed the machine” that you feel is taking advantage of her, but you can support her music and fight for justice at the same time. Use this as a way to raise awareness while we trust the process that is going on now. She’s getting more and more victories in court. Ok I ranted quite a bit. This is all in my opinion and my interpretation of things. We can discuss EDIT: the simplest thing I’m trying to say in addition to that long drawn out post is that I think with Bessemer coming into this, it seems like Jamie is actually (although maybe slowly) getting removed from his position Related:
  7. There's a rumor that RCA wanted Britney to release a Xmas album this year, but she said no because she's not working right now while she fights the conservatorship. Related:
  8. At first I thought Billy B (@billybmakeup on IG) was shedding light on Britney’s situation, and seeking justice. But now it’s clear, he is self serving in an effort to gain more publicity of his own! Today he posted 2 songs that Britney allegedly sent to him personally, in order for him to share with us. Only problem is... those songs have been leaked for years! Then when he started receiving backlash in his comments, he posted alleged screenshots of his text conversation with Britney. Only problem is... those messages are green & white, inconsistent with the blue & white iMessage we all know Apple products use. Billy & Britney BOTH have iPhones, why would their message thread be green? Finally, in a last ditch effort to sway Britney fans, he posted an alleged selfie (which I have attached) of Britney at her vanity. He later deleted it, but the caption read “see guys it’s really her, now you can calm down!” In an effort to make us believe Britney had sent him that selfie. Only problem is... the iPhone she was holding was an OLD model iPhone, and in the recent pictures of her & Sam at the beach (also attached) she has a NEWER iPhone model laying on her towel! He is a wolf in sheep’s clothing, and I suggest we all unfollow this opportunist. I called him out in the comments of his IG posts, and let him know I would officially be unfollowing due to his recent increase of sketchy behavior, all he could respond with was “ok bye” just like he does to every other user who questions his legitimacy.
  9. OK, this is my first major topic to open a thread with, it's major LONG and I just know I'm going to get crucified by some of ya'll so just play nice please I've been avidly checking dates, comparing quotes, captions, pics, outfits, dissecting the evidence and reading the Queen's eyelashes now for months to try and decipher if it's really Britney behind the posts and I personally believe that Britney regained at least autonomy over her pics/videos/captions even if she doesn't post them 'live' herself. Buckle in BH, here's the my take: I believe Britney gained a level of autonomy on her social media around late 2018/early 2019. Sometime in the Domination rehersals and around the time of this post something changed: This is around the time she was actively rebelling against Jamie - going out driving, disappearing with Sam, stopping her meds, etc. etc. I believe she potentially managed to eventually get almost full control (besides advertising posts) following her stay in the wellness centre, possibly as a deal between her and Jamie that if she went along with the 'all is well' post to take the heat off that she could have majority say on her content, provided she produced enough content regularly and her social media team controlled when the posts go out. Perhaps, this is the time Sam Ingram did a glorious u-turn and perhaps he managed to leverage control over Instagram as one of the the 'adjustments' that have been already made that to her freedom that we haven't had detail on yet. Posting the video from the clinic defending her family and saying Sam Lufti faked her emails would have given her huge leverage after all. And from this point on we get full on quirky Brit, rebellion Brit and trolling Brit, lengthy, cryptic captions AND if you take a look you will see that 'Touch Of Rose and RED actually begin to sneak in around this time too. The Multiple Repeat Posts What better way to rebel against Lou and Jamie by just filming a LOAD of selfies, walking videos, setups etc on just a few days to keep reusing to meet her content quota. Homegirl would know how much this would grate James as he tries to continue working her like a cash mule - repeat posts of a make-up less Britney looking sad and expressionless in non big label outfits (note that the peasant tops are NOT what she chooses to wear when on vocation or when outdoors with Sam). She even posted a video mentioning wishing she 'had wardrobe full of designer clothes... just IMAGINE' which is so heavily laced with direct sarcasm towards those who forced her to parade in runway show posts wearing expensive dresses for so long. She even posts a video showing us the actual wardrobe of designer clothes she has, yet suddenly she's wearing basic fashion - either they took all of her clothes away and replaced with what she has now (makes no sense to a team pushing her to be cool and relevant) or she's actively choosing not to wear them and along with her remarks about her flip flips, heels, make-up, hair, the 'immaculate threading' on the Mommy floral dress...Britney having never owned a white swim suit before so wears her 'Grandmas' old one when we've seen her in designer white swim suits multiple times. She's making a point to team CON that she's no longer going to be their doll to dress up and flaunt for money for themselves. Which leads me to... Her outfits/overall appearance/image: https://www.instagram.com/tv/CESyJMvgL5F/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link Could the online auction of outfits recently have been Britney herself? Or perhaps Lynne? They would need to raise money to pay Sam Ingram since Jamie stopped- plus I'd imagine to have funds she can access to buy herself things she wouldn't normally be able/allowed to - the yellow dress from Bloomingdales, junk food and chocolate. All of those posts have undertones of being things she hasn't been able to do in a long time, probably rejecting efforts from Jamie to force a strict diet on her ever since he took over her life. She's said in many posts she used to hate sitting in hair and makeup for hours for shows and is letting herself FREE with no ****s to give what she looks like. Dancing barefoot, in gym clothes and not made-up to her choice of music and improvised is literally polar opposite of what she had to do when she was actively working for Jamie (hence the need to destroy her hair do night after night in Vegas). She's pointedly remarked about her lack of make-up lately too and that she doesn't have to bother to make him happy; real fans shouldn't care what she looks like at home - being Jamie's slave would mean immaculate hair and make-up, amazing clothes, collaborations with brands and maintaining a 'cool' persona to appeal to a young demographic. She always now posts unedited versions of her photos as a direct response to people saying she's been photoshopped. I've also lost count of the number of posts, random pics where she and/or Sam says something is cool in a very mocking tone when it clearly isn't what generally be considered as 'hip or cool' which suggests to me she doesn't care about impressing to get followers. She knows that her posts being repeated, her dancing erratically and generally her just being Britney will get attention from her followers - this is not Team CON trying to make her look crazy! Why would they do that? That would show that they have failed to protect her and would severely hinder the commercial potential of her brand as she would be considered as 'risky business' - You think James and Lou are really going to intentionally harm their 'investments' potential return by making her come across as too unstable to work? The fact James keeps claiming this is simply a lie to maintain power - so Britney is hamming it up to the max because the more oddly she behaves the more attention is given to her posts, comments and Free Britney movement as a whole. No to mention that EVERY single music track she chooses to put on her videos has strong freedom/breaking free/being controlled/anti-conservatorship vibes. Hey Lou , let's post a fathers day instagram but not mention her me AT ALL despite Lynne getting the full on daughter love on Mother's Day?? Nah. It just doesn't make 'hybrid business model' sense, now does it? Speaking of getting more ATTENTION... ROSE/RED PROJECTS 'Just a Touch of Rose' seems to be the series of garden or studio backdrop shots, primarily of her staring expressionless at the camera as she walks back and forth towards it with a deep gaze. As she has told us many times 'the eyes are the window to the soul' and in these photos there is a palatable sense of sadness and of someone reaching out in desperate hope for something. She stares at us... 'rooting for the world' (ie. her fans helping her), asking us to look at the little differences, details in the small things in these shots, presenting herself with a crown of roses popular amongst Goddess and Nymph mythology that she frequently references. Only when she was awarded her right to her own counsel the other day did she present 'Rose' with a beaming smile to end the project and instantly moving on to 'RED' featuring more shots of her from the Summer. 'RED' symbolises danger, blood shed, a warning sign and draws attention. Here she portrays herself more confidently and with a harder gaze - as though she is setting her sights on her prey and sending out the signal to run and hide. I think we will see more similar/same shots from a couple of months ago as we build towards the next major point in the court battle (after all it IS still Summer! ). I'm not going to get into hype around RED being a secret album, but let's just say there's a high number of coincidences between Britney and Danja's posts and timings of certain posts. There's also some interesting song titles registered if you have a look for them under the name 'DANJA DANJA'. I'm remaining open minded and optimistic on that front. I could get into Sam, the Lioness imagery, quotes and a lot more coincidental stuff but my brain is too fried from trying to piece all the puzzle at the minute. Please don't attack me for my personal views, I just happen to think Britney is super smart (as she's proven so often in the past) and knows what she'd doing. She'd told us she needs our help (hello Yellow top - her new favourite colour!), but I don't think we should take it in the literal sense of 'help I'm held prisoner and beaten if I don't dance for you, more that she needs us to SHARE her story and continue to put pressure on Team CON. GOD BLESS YOU ALL! PS. One finally thing... the wristband conspiracy. None of you remember this? Related:
  10. Britney's legal advocate / lawyer Sam Ingham filed documents slamming Jamie Spears' petition to bring back Andrew Wallet as co-conservator of Britney. For all intents and purposes, he is a complete stranger to Britney and is insanely expensive. Ingham also points out the exuberant fees the conservatorship team and her business managers made in 2019 and 2020 despite Britney not having performed once. That includes $426,000 a year for Britney's co-conservator. Lou Taylor's Tri Star was approved for $500,000. Jamie Spears Mr. Spears claims Britney's objections to the appointment of the conservator are full of factual misstatements. Jamie's asking the court to hold a hearing to weigh the facts, TMZ reports. Andrew Wallet "After denying for months that any structural change to this conservatorship was necessary, an hour before the last hearing James suddenly reversed direction and conceded that a co-conservator of the estate is needed after all. However, rather than work collaboratively with Britney to find the best candidate, James chose to work in direct opposition to her clear statement that she "strongly prefers to have a qualified corporate fiduciary appointed to serve in this role." "In fact, Mr. Wallets's sudden departure after 11 years was "voluntary" only in the sense that he wasn't removed. Rather, it was negotiated by court-appointed counsel for Britney and supported by consideration to Mr. Wallet in the form of a $100,000.00 "golden parachute." So, he says, adding "any individual co-conservator to this case, much less Mr. Wallet represents a very poor value that Britney cannot afford. "Apart from the fact that Mr. Wallet has been extremely expensive in the past, based on what occurred over the 11 years he served as her co-conservator there is no reason to believe that Mr. Wallet will be able to work with Britney to explain and implement any difficult budgetary choices that must be made." Tri-Star The document also fights Jamie's move at the end of 2019, when he agreed to pay Tri Star Group a minimum annual fee of $500,000 despite the fact that Britney hasn't performed again since October 2018, and doesn't plan to do so at the moment. "In considering the economic impact of Mr. Wallets's return on Britney's estate, it should be noted that on December 20, 21 2019, after Mr. Wallet had departed, James modified the compensation of TRI STAR SPORTS AND ENTERTAINMENT GROUP, the business manager, to provide for a minimum annual fee of $500,000.00," the filing says. He adds, "This amount represents more than DOUBLE the amount that Tri-Star was previously receiving." "Apparently this frugality does not extend to the fees James pays from the conservatorship to the financial professionals with whom he surrounds himself." You can read the full article at The Blast.

  11. Honestly I don't want and expect Britney to work right away after she is free from conservatorship. I want her to spare time for herself and her children instead of a new album work. We are all hungry for her new music, I know. Let's dream of the next album now !! I wish the original doll would meet us or a similar album would be great. For some reason, I feel like the next album will be "masterpiece" and very powerful. They've undermined her creativity over the years, and it seems to me that when she has everything under her own control she will do even more wonderful things.
  12. Britney Spears was hospitalized twice in January 2008. The first time, it happened after she reportedly locked herself in a bathroom w/ her two kids. She was then strapped to a gurney, and it made front news (Star Magazine sure lacked class...). Later on that month, she was once again hospitalized after reportedly not sleeping for three days in a row. (There was that pic of her w/ that pink wig and that pack of Red Bull, apparently to stay awake.) I remember reading on X17 Online that Britney had a psychiatrist (Dr. Deborah Nadel) at the time that would prescribe her meds, that Sam Lutfi crushed (those?) pills and put them in her food in order to "heal her brain" and that Britney willingly agreed to be taken to the hospital during an intervention by Lynne Spears. And it's that second hospitalization that directly led to the conservatorship then made permanent. I suppose Lou Taylor (reportedly the mastermind behind the c-ship) had already been in talks w/ Lynne and Jamie Spears, right? I'm just unsure as to what exactly led to that 2nd hospitalization. Lutfi (years later) claimed in court that Britney was doing ****. And some speculated it was all a set-up... What about it? What if Britney was never committed that evening? Would she have avoided being placed under c-ship? And regarding use of the word "voluntary" in the latest court document... We know Britney did not voluntarily seek c-ship; she even tried to fight it a few times back then. (Heck, she was even caught, according to court documents, trying to call Sam Lutfi a few years after being placed under c-ship—she must have seriously mistrusted Jamie back then!) I think "voluntary" simply means that if it's voluntary, Britney can opt to terminate the c-ship any time she pleases.
  13. The full Rebellion track may have some more clues as to what's going on. Isn't it the right time for it to leak in full? Some people do have it and are holding on to it when they know how much we want to hear it in full. Some of them may say "it's not their place to leak it", but come on... How many Britney Spears songs did leak in full? 20 or even more? Most of the leaks were illegal, right? So why would leaking that one track be more "illegal"'? Doesn't make much sense. Also, I think Britney should just apply to have the c-ship (both personal & financial) dissolved once and for all. According to her court-appointed lawyer, she can do so. I understand the strategy of removing Jamie first, but it's dragging way too long. February 2021, six more months (exactly 13 years after the c-ship was put in place) just for it to be endlessly extended? Right now, does Britney Spears need the c-ship? Yes or no? If not, then why not just seek its termination now and make a compelling case w/ a team of doctors that would argue it needs to end?

  15. Britney Spears reportedly spent over $1,000,000 of her own money paying the lawyers handling her conservatorships, The Blast reports. Mind you, Britney has remained adamant about not wanting to be in a conservatorship since day one. Her brother recently confirmed so as well, saying "she's always wanted to get out of it." She's paying people to keep her in something she does not want to be in... let that sink in. A new filing highlights how much Britney's assets are worth, how her stocks did and the expenses of her private and professional conservatorships. The financial records say Britney spent a total of $1,202,503.30 on attorney fees and services in 2019. $400,000 of that were designated for "conservatee fees" charged by her own attorney, Sam Ingham. Another $346,000 was "conservator fees" charged by the attorneys working on the conservatorship. Britney's former co-conservator, Andrew Wallet, who abruptly quit last year after receiving a pay-raise, was paid $27,000. Britney's father Jamie took home $128,000. It's worth mentioning Mr. Spears lives full-time in Louisiana while Britney lives in Los Angeles. Related:
  16. April Parks was a professional Nevada guardian/conservator. As a guardian, April Parks controlled hundreds Nevada’s most vulnerable people, isolated them, and drained their life savings. She is now in prison for 16-40 years. Here is an article published by Forbes about this case: This is an article that explains more in depth how April Parks operated and how elderly people lose their rights: I really wanted to post this because I feel there are some similarities to Britney's situation.
  17. The energy behind the #FreeBritney movement is at an all-time high. Millions of people are demanding change for a perceived injustice happening before our very eyes to one of the most powerful pop icons of our generation. 12 years ago, Britney was involuntarily placed in personal and financial conservatorships that legally removed her rights to fundamental basic civil liberties, including hiring her own representation, choosing her doctors... even freely seeing who she wants, voting or driving. Yesterday, July 22nd, a court hearing took place in downtown LA to discuss the status of Britney's conservatorships. Britney was scheduled to appear via video conference, however she did not. What happened? Fans outside the court hearing began claiming they were told she never appeared due to a connection error. This inspired a wave of backlash because it prompted a very legitimate concern that Britney was being censored or purposefully blocked from speaking on the conservatorship, thus prolonging her undesirable situation further. Basically, fans felt she was once again being censored. However, a source close to the court hearing, who finds it important to create an honest dialogue with supporters, reveals to BreatheHeavy that the connection error story is untrue. What actually happened is that four individuals who originally joined the video call with the judge were ordered to exit the call before Britney signed on because the information is confidential. However, they ignored the judge's requests, likely in an effort to stumble upon sensitive information, and continued to pop in and out of the stream prior to Britney's virtual arrival. As a result, the judge delayed the hearing as it was imperative to keep what Britney had to say completely private. Before the conspiracy theories begin, I'd like to point out that I was not paid or swayed in any way. What I do want to emphasize is that this is an honest attempt at communicating the truth, which I think is something many of us find very valuable amidst all of the uncertainty. This is a positive step, and while I know this information will be scrutinized anyway, I'd like to remind you that I personally champion the notion of Britney gaining more independence. I also am an advocate for transparency regarding this sensitive subject (or at least, finding a balance), and I think this is an instance where that happened. There's a new court date scheduled for August 19th. Related:
  18. Okay so I'm nee to exhale and learning how to get my *** kicked on here, but anyway I'm still trying cause I have to much time. Furthermore, people saying they want Britney to be free, I think that they forget Britney will never be free. She will always have people telling her what to do, what's wrong what's right etc. I mean even before the conservatorship she tried to be free and live a normal but that ended her up in this situation. I think Michael Jackson was the perfect example of what that kind of fame does to someone. He was always by himself at the end. It's crazy to think that the amount of people that want to talk to these superstars and want to spend time with them, but somehow a lot of them say they end up lonely. (UPDATE) Okay more positive if we win we need to keep fighting for her. We all have to be leave britney alone peeps if the haters attack her, (which we all know they will) (Super update) Thanks for the replys. I agree we need to be positive and im not trying to stir the pot. I try to think critically about all this instead of emotionally. Idk what it is about Britney that people are drawn to. For me its about how strong of a person she is and how much crap she takes. If someone criticizes me I get my painties in a bunch, but she is always getting it and has still stayed a decent human being(as far and I know, I've never met her) and to me that's inspiring. So I say keep fighting and only the future will tell what will come out of this.
  19. Britney Spears' mom, Lynne Spears, filed legal documents requesting to be included in all the decisions regarding Britney's finances, specifically the trust which holds most of Britney's multi-million dollar assets, The Blast reports. She's asking the Los Angeles County Courts to be included in any "special notice" of "all matters" having to do with Britney's trust. Related:
  20. So she blocked me on my Twitter. Given that I've had this account for like 2 weeks, this is proof she does read the tweets and blocks anyone who is against her. We have got to spread this worldwide to every single person in the world. She can't block the whole world!
  21. So I’ve noticed something interesting under Lady Gaga’s tweet about Britney’s dad’s barbeque in 2014. I suppose she talks about our Britney since they met at the backstage of POM that year. Any duct tape as well?? The fact that this happened 4 years before the whole #FreeBritney movement. I felt like I had to share it here. Should I delete the post in case they make him delete the tweet? Should we get screenshots? Is the tweet even useful for Britney’s case? Who’s even Jeff Raymond? A time traveller from 2018 or something? Too much for my cute little mind
  22. I have to believe that at some point the conservatorship will end & Britney will regain control of her life. If that happens, I've often wondered what would happen in the days/months that would follow. So my question...what do you think Britney will do? Give a tell all interview? Write a book? End her relationship with certain family members? Start partying hard? Devote all her time to getting custody of her kids? Tell me what you predict will happen!
