Britney Spears Reportedly Called 911 Ahead of Her Conservatorship Hearing
She allegedly reported herself as a victim of conservatorship abuse the night before her testimony.
It's been just over a week since Britney Spears made her powerful testimony about her ongoing conservatorship battle, and still, new details continue to emerge about the case — including a report claiming that Spears called 911 the night before her hearing.
In an article for The New Yorker, a person close to Spears and law enforcement in Ventura County, California, where the singer lives, revealed that she made the emergency call to report herself as a victim of conservatorship abuse. The publication noted, "Emergency calls in California are generally accessible to the public, but the county, citing an ongoing investigation, sealed the records of Spears's call."
Unsurprisingly, Britney's management team became "nervous" and "began texting one another frantically" about what Spears might say in court the next day. And they had good reason. Last week, the 39-year-old pop star spoke for herself for the first time in years, describing how for the past decade she's been medicated, forced to work against her will, and not allowed to remove her IUD to have another child.
"I have an IUD in my body right now that won't let me have a baby and my conservators won't let me go to the doctor to take it out," Spears said during the hearing. "I wanna be able to get married and have a baby."
She continued, "I deserve to have a life. I worked my whole life. I deserve to have a two- to three-year break and do what I need to do. I feel ganged up, I felt left out and I feel alone. I deserve to have the same rights as anyone does by having a child and a family. Any of those things."
Following Britney's appeal, the judge commended her for her bravery, but ultimately denied her request to have her father, Jamie Spears, removed from the financial aspects of her conservatorship.
