BRITNEY Spears is set to speak in a Los Angeles court tomorrow for the first time in years about her controversial conservatorship.
The conservatorship, which was implemented in 2008 after a series of public meltdowns by the singer, prevents Britney from controlling her life or having any access to her million-dollar fortune.
In 2008, after Britney was committed to a psychiatric ward, her dad was granted a temporary conservatorship which became permanent by the end of the year.
However, in recent years the #FreeBritney movement has grown and fans of the pop star are calling on her to be let out of the legal agreement.
Britney herself has remained quiet about the conservatorship – but that is expected to change at Wednesday’s bombshell hearing.

SPEARS ‘RESERVES A RIGHT’ TO CANCEL CONSERVATORSHIP
Additionally, the legal documents stated that Spears reserves the right to eventually request an end to the conservatorship completely.
While sources have said Spear’s life “would drastically change for the better” if Jamie is removed, the father’s lawyer Vivian Thoreen previously claimed the conservatorship “saved” the singer’s life.
