At a hearing Tuesday, CNN reports that the singer’s lawyer, Sam Ingham III, said they “now address the court directly.”
“The ward has requested that she petition the court for a status hearing in which she can address the court directly,” Richter said Brenda Penny. “My client has asked that it be done on an expedited basis.”
The guardianship is a legal agreement that was granted to Britney’s father, Jamie Spears, following her psychiatric hospitalization in 2008. The legal contract gives him control over her career, medical treatment and estate, as well as some aspects of her personal life.

She is now 39 years old and repeatedly asks for her freedom.
In August 2020, the singer said she no longer wanted her father to control her guardianship, and later asked to be removed from her estate as co-conservator in November 2020.
He even went so far as to say it would no longer happen as long as he controlled her career.
Britney’s father, James, previously said, “I have and will continue to provide unwavering love and fierce protection against those with selfish interests and those who seek to harm her or my family.”
The next hearing to remove Jamie is not rated by a judge for July 14 – a month after the judge hears her.
The judge also granted a request that ensures documents about Jodi Montgomery – Britney’s temporary conservator, who has taken over in September, hidden from the public.
Many of Britney’s fans have rallied for the singer to have more control over her career and personal life in recent years.
And the movement has grown in recent years after the New York Times published “The New York Times Presents, Framing Britney Spears.”
The film sparked an international outcry, and support from celebrities including Paris Hilton, Miley Cyrus and Bella Thorne.
