As Britney Spears's legal battle with father Jamie Spears intensifies, she has requested to speak in court. Although the reason is not known yet, a Los Angeles judge set a June 23 hearing following her lawyer, Samuel Ingham's request. "My client has requested a hearing at which she can address the court directly," he told the court on Tuesday, April 27 and added: "My client has asked that it be done on an expedited basis." 

This comes after a bombshell documentary 'The Battle for Britney' on BBC2 has revealed that Britney has dementia. The documents shown in the documentary explain the purpose of conservatorship, which was put in motion in 2008 after the pop icon's controversial mental breakdown.

Britney Spears to appear in court over conservatorship status, fans say, 'Free her, let her make own decisions'

According to The Sun, journalist Mobeen Azhar, who presents the documentary, claimed Jamie had filed papers, in which he allegedly ticked a box stating “dementia placement or treatment" as a reason to control the singer's finances and other life decisions. Azhar says the dementia claim sounds 'a bit out there' and that he thought it was a 'conspiracy theory'.
According to The Mirror, he says: "There are a couple of fan sites who said they have got hold of paperwork surrounding the conservatorship. 'You have to tick a box justifying the reason and the box that is ticked, it says: 'The order is related to dementia placement or treatment as specified'."

"There are only two options with that. Britney might have dementia. Now I’m not a doctor but if that’s the case, then the world isn’t aware of that. But the other option is actually more sinister," Azhar said and added that Britney doesn't have dementia and it's "terrifying" that the other team are going with those claims to keep the conservatorship intact.

'Britney does not have dementia'

This sudden movement in the ongoing case has some of her fans concerned. Britney's fans rubbished her dad’s alleged claim saying: “Dementia patients do not go on world tours.” One of the Free Britney campaigners expressed worry on Twitter saying she is being robbed by criminals. "Britney Spears does not have dementia. A capacity declaration has not been filed in this case. She was denied due process, the right to an attorney, a jury trial, notice, and the opportunity to be heard. She is being exploited by a mob of criminals who are actively robbing her," a social media user tweeted. 

"A conservatorship is needed for someone who can’t provide food, clothing, or shelter for themselves. Here’s Britney Spears making her own lunch while fully clothed in a house that she bought for herself," another wrote. "Correct! And there is no medical declaration filed proving so. It was all hearsay and speculation approved by the judge," a fourth commented. Another doubled down saying, "Ermmm... what? Where have you been!? This has literally been the point of the Free Britney movement for YEARS. Because she is being trapped by lies." One said: "This isn't 2007. we know what's going on. all he wants is her money."









"Britney Spears was carrying her baby and pregnant with her second child when she was chased by over 300 paparazzi. She ran into a cafe hoping the manager would help but they laughed and took pictures of her crying. We’re all to blame. #FreeBritney," one user posted.





Meanwhile, Jamie has declined to comment on the allegations leveled against him in the film or off it. However, he has maintained that he has always worked in her best interest and was doing all he could to protect her.

Britney's breakdown

Before being committed to a psychiatric hospital, Britney spiraled. She had a tumultuous year, in which she divorced husband Kevin Federline, lost custody of sons Sean and Jayden, shaved her head, attacked a photographer's car and enrolled in rehab. It was then that the conservatorship came into action. It was designed to protect her financially.

But those days are behind her and she's ready to fight it all out while keeping her sanity in check. In a recent Instagram video, Britney assured her fans that she was doing okay. "Am I OK? Yes, I am totally fine," the 39-year old pop star said and continued, "I am extremely happy. I have a beautiful home, beautiful children. I am taking a break right now because I'm enjoying myself."

'The Battle for Britney: Fans, Cash And A Conservatorship' is set to premiere on BBC2 on Wednesday, May 5.
