Britney Spears appears in cleared court to speak on her legal status

Britney Spears

Britney's father, Jamie Spears, has been her conservator since 2008, and he became sole conservator this year after attorney Andrew Wallet resigned from his co-conservatorship in March.

Britney Spears' team is going to be under the microscope when they appear before a judge for a hearing on her conservatorship, and even though some have accused them of pushing the star beyond her limits to earn millions, they are adamant Britney was the one who wanted to keep working.

Washington D.C., May 9: American singer-songwriter Britney Spears has been granted a restraining order against her former manager Sam Lutfi. The children were born extremely close together and Britney's ex-husband, Kevin Federline, has custody of the boys.

The pop sensation is also understood to have asked for more freedoms under the conservatorship, but her request was not granted.

The recent filing alleges that "shortly after Ms. Spears checked herself into a mental health facility, Lutfi began a new campaign of harassment against Ms. Spears and her family". In an Instagram post, the performer wrote that she'd be prioritizing her family because her dad had been hospitalized and "nearly died" - it was later revealed that his colon ruptured in November 2018.

Rarely is it used for people as functional as Spears, who despite further problems-she has said in interviews that she struggles with bipolar disorder-has seen her career continue to thrive.

Jamie Lynn, 28, expressed support for her sister by posting a photo of her on her Instagram page hours after the hearing.

The court appearance was one of the Toxic star's first outings since she completed mental health treatment in a wellness centre. Britney does not have to attend.

According to TMZ, Lynne asked her best friend, the wife of Louisiana's Governor, to with help finding a lawyer.

But Penny has not indicated she is inclined to make any major moves, and ordered another status hearing for September.

Spears' camp are arguing that Lutfi is trying to disrupt Britney's conservatorship through calls for "vigilante action, bribes and release of private information".

In the same court building on Wednesday, a judge granted Spears a temporary restraining order against Sam Lutfi, a man who once claimed to be her manager and has been in legal fights with her family for a decade.

Lutfi's attorney, Marc S. Gans, said in a statement to CNN that he and his client were disappointed that the restraining order had been granted.

The judge also ordered that he not contact or disparage anyone from the family.
