Britney Spears to address court directly over battle with her father

Britney Spears will address a court about her long-running battle with her father.

Jamie Spears has been conservator or guardian of the pop singer's affairs since 2008.

It has not been confirmed what issues Spears, 39, wishes to raise during her appearance, but Judge Brenda Penny set a status hearing for 23 June.

It is not clear if Spears will appear via video or in person at Los Angeles Superior Court.

She has previously spoken about the court-ordered conservatorship only through her lawyer Samuel Ingham.
