Spears had kept almost entirely quiet abou
t her conservatorship, at least publicly, through the years. But in June 2021, she opened up to a Los Angeles probate judge in a harrowing 24-minute testimony in an effort to end her conservatorship. In the testimony, she called the conservatorship abusive, and gave more insight into how her father allegedly used it to control every aspect of her life, including her relationship with Asghari.
"If I didn't do any of my meetings and work from eight to six at night, which is 10 hours a day, seven days a week, no days off, I wouldn't be able to see my kids or my boyfriend," Spears told the court (via Variety). "I feel like they're making me feel like I live in a rehab program. This is my home. I'd like for my boyfriend to be able to drive me in his car."
Later, she claimed she was being prevented from getting married and having children with Asghari. "I would like to progressively move forward and I want to have the real deal, I want to be able to get married and have a baby. I was told right now in the conservatorship, I'm not able to get married or have a baby, I have a (IUD) inside of myself right now so I don't get pregnant. I wanted to take the (IUD) out so I could start trying to have another baby. But this so-called team won't let me go to the doctor to take it out because they don't want me to have children – any more children. So basically, this conservatorship is doing me waaay more harm than good. I deserve to have a life."
In response to Spears's testimony, Jamie Spears said he was "sorry to hear [Britney is] suffering and in so much pain" and that he "misses his daughter very much," according to The Hollywood Reporter.
