Britney Spears asks court to end “abusive” conservatorship

Britney Spears asks the court to end her “abusive” conservatorship. The pop star addressed a Los Angeles courtroom remotely on Wednesday to challenge the legal arrangement she has been living under for 13 years. Here are the most shocking statements from her testimony. The singer claimed she was forced to take new medication after saying she did not want to continue her Las Vegas residency in late 2018. “He immediately, the next day, put me on lithium out of nowhere. He took me off my normal meds I’ve been on for five years. And lithium is a very, very strong and completely different medication compared to what I was used to….But he put me on that and I felt drunk.” Britney compared her situation to being sex-trafficked. “I worked seven days a week, no days off…Making anyone work against their will, taking all their possessions away — credit card, cash, phone, passport — and placing them in a home where they work with the people who live with them.”
