Scroll for the photos. All three showed the “Toxic” singer in the same position: two legs extended in front of her and arms out as the Grammy winner wore a straw hat and enjoyed the shorefront. A caption from Spears confirmed her photos weren’t part of newly-announced photography “Project Rose,” continuing:

” Hey 👋 … while you’re at it ….. turn the photos upside down and you will find it’s a T !!!!!! For teacher … tea … test … tomorrow … time … two … ten … tool … try …. thanks …. they … I mean we could go all day with this one, right !?!?”

Fears Amid Legal Battles

Britney, largely sparking 2020 concerns as her 2008-commenced conservatorship rages on, has fans deeming the post a hidden message. #FreeBritney, hell-bent on claiming the singer isn’t controlling her Instagram, often directs its anger towards 68-year-old father Jamie Spears – he controls the singer’s finances and many other aspects of her life.

“T for trapped” tops comments with over 7,600 likes.

Big-time Britney supporter, Rudy Bundini, meanwhile, wrote: “I swear she is trying to tell us something in codes and hints,” then telling Spears “YOU ARE NOT ALONE.”

Fans Say ‘T’ Is ‘Time’ To End Conservatorship

Britney’s conservatorship is now extended through February 2021. Fans have been calling foul play throughout recent court goings-on, particularly back in July, when Britney failed to appear at her court date, with “technical issues” cited for the absence.

“T for Time to end the conservatorship,” one fan wrote.

“Most concerning caption yet,” another said.

“This is scary,” a further fan wrote.

Britney has been on the defensive of late. She’s sick and tired of fans accusing her of posting recycled content. In fact, she’s been clapping back over wearing “the same top 17 times.” Scroll for her scathing response.

If you aren’t up-to-date, Britney’s repetitive posts kicked off in early 2020 with her shot against a plain red wall. That wall then turned white and yellow, with summer bringing Britney in her backyard, often seen in peasant blouses and with flowers in her hair. After calling herself “authentic” in July and still seeing fans dragging her out, the singer spoke out.

“A lot of people have been saying that a lot of my posts are not new but they’re old. But just to let you guys know, none of my pictures or posts are more than a month old,” she told her fans, then adding:

“Yes, I know. I did wear the same top 17 times, but it’s for a project – Project Rose. And you will be seeing way more of Project Rose in the future.”

Britney Spears says she uses healing crystals for ‘guidance’ and ‘confidence’ amid conservatorship extension – Fox News

Britney Spears is seeking “guidance” and “confidence” using healing crystals amid her latest setback with her conservatorship.

Last week, a judge ruled that her father, Jamie, and care manager Jodi Montgomery will remain her co-conservators until February 2021.

Spears, 38, took to Instagram on Monday and posted a photo of the cover of “The Crystal Bible” by Judy Hall. The book aims to educate readers on “the spiritual, mental and psychological, emotional and physical effects” of crystals.

BRITNEY SPEARS’ CONSERVATORSHIP EXTENDED UNTIL 2021

“Call me weird if you want but I really love crystals and rocks !!!!” the “Toxic” singer began. “During this pandemic I’ve had more time to myself so I started a collection of crystals and I now have 33 🔮✨ !!!!”

She then revealed she prays and meditates with the crystals “every darn day.”

“I don’t have a specific prayer because it’s different every time depending on what I’m going through,” Spears said amid recent updates surrounding her conservatorship.

The “Baby One More Time” singer continued: “For instance, yesterday I prayed to find more confidence and grace ….. asking my spiritual guides to guide me … I usually also burn incense to clear the energy !!!

PARIS HILTON WEIGHS IN ON BRITNEY SPEARS’ CONSERVATORSHIP, SAYS IT’S ‘NOT FAIR’ TO BE ‘TREATED LIKE A CHILD’

“I even used to hold a small rock in my pocket when I was nervous for interviews for good luck 🍀 !!!!” Spears revealed. “I’m taking this time to find myself and go back to the things I loved when I was younger !!!!”

The pop star gave another example of how she used to play with rocks in her driveway as a kid.

“I guess some things never change,” she joked.

“PS in other words go put some damn rocks in your house 🏡 !!!!” Spears concluded.

The singer’s conservatorship, which has been overseen by her father Jamie for the vast majority of its existence, has reportedly been the cause of some drama in recent months.

Last week, Spears’ lawyer, Samuel D. Ingham III, reportedly filed court documents stating that the singer is “strongly opposed” to having her father remain her sole conservator.

BRITNEY SPEARS’ FATHER JAMIE SPEAKS OUT AMID CONSERVATORSHIP DRAMA: ‘I LOVE MY DAUGHTER’

Despite the request, Fox News obtained documents filed in the case that confirm the conservatorship has been extended until at least February 2021.

Ingham was authorized to file a petition no later than Sept. 18 and have it set for a hearing on Oct. 14.

Documents filed earlier last week reportedly show that Spears is requesting that her temporary conservator, Montgomery, take on the role permanently.

WHAT IS CONSERVATORSHIP AND WHAT DOES IT MEAN FOR YOUR MONEY?

The conservatorship was put in place in 2008 following the singer’s breakdowns.

The court originally named Jamie as the permanent conservator of her personal and financial well-being, while her attorney, Andrew Wallet, was named the permanent co-conservator, according to People magazine. According to the outlet, Wallet exited his role last year.

The conservatorship is one of the reasons fans have launched the #FreeBritney campaign in an effort to show support for the songstress as she allegedly has very little control over her money, career and life.

Why Does Britney Spears Need a Conservatorship—And What Does it Mean to Have One? – Health.com

Britney Spears’s fight to remove her father as her sole legal conservator isn’t going to be a straightforward one. James Spears has had control over the singer’s estate and career—pretty much her whole life, in fact—since 2008. He temporarily stepped down as conservator in 2019 for health reasons, but is due to resume the role later this year—unless Britney and her legal team can make some changes. 

Britney’s attorney, Samuel D. Ingham III, filed a document to the Superior Court of California in Los Angeles on August 17, stating that she is “strongly opposed” to having her father “return as conservator of her person,” The New York Times reported. Instead, Britney wants her dad’s temporary replacement, licensed professional conservator Jodi Montgomery, to take the role on permanently. 

Ingham added that the conservatorship “must be changed substantially” to reflect the “major changes in [Britney’s] current lifestyle and her stated wishes.”

During a scheduled conference on August 19, Montgomery’s role as Britney’s conservator was extended through February 1, 2021, according to documents obtained by Entertainment Tonight. Now, Ingham has until September 18 to file a petition for a permanent change—otherwise, James will resume his role after that February 1 deadline.

These legal actions seem to be relatively new for Britney—the 38-year-old, as reported by the NYT, has only rarely commented on the conditions of her conservatorship and hasn’t attempted to make many changes to the arrangement. Fans and family members, however, have repeatedly voiced concern over just how much control those around her have on Britney’s life and fortune (that’s why the #FreeBritney movement surfaced). Here’s what you need to know about Britney’s situation, including what a conservatorship is, who typically needs one, and how common they tend to be.

What is a conservatorship, exactly?  

“A conservatorship is a legal concept in which a judicial body appoints a person to assist in managing the affairs of a person who does not have capacity to manage their own affairs,” David Reischer, NYC-based attorney and CEO of LegalAdvice.com, tells Health. “The conservator is responsible for managing the financial matters, healthcare matters, and day-to-day personal matters of the person under the conservatorship, who is typically referred to as the conservatee.”

In the August 17 filing, Ingham described how Britney’s conservatorship has developed in three marked stages as her personal circumstances have changed over the years. During the first phase—”triage”—her conservators “rescued her from a collapse, exploitation by predatory individuals, and financial ruin.”

Britney’s performing years, when she had several world tours, a successful Las Vegas residency, and a season as a judge on The X Factor, occurred in the second stage. The current and third stage of the conservatorship reflects the fact that Britney no longer wants to perform.

Why does Britney need a conservatorship? 

A conservatorship is most often sought when a person has limited physical or mental capabilities, and needs care and attention from another person or legal entity. It’s common for a conservatorship to be in place to assist a person in old age or somebody who is deemed “gravely disabled” by the court, Reischer says, but it’s also not unusual to have a conservatorship on mental health grounds for a young adult (Britney was 26 when James Spears was first granted a conservatorship). In fact, Reischer says it may be much more common than most people think.  

“Incapacity is not limited by age,” he says. “Many individuals are deemed by the court to lack capacity, and age is an almost arbitrary and irrelevant factor when it comes to measuring a person’s developmental abilities.” 

A conservator is necessary for people who are unable to make decisions for themselves in a reasonable and safe way, board-certified psychiatrist and author Gayani DeSilva, MD, tells Health

What happens in a conservatorship case? 

Few details of Britney’s conservatorship are in the public domain. But what happened before it made headlines around the world: Britney driving with a baby in her lap, Britney shaving her head on a whim, Britney attacking a car with an umbrella, Britney being wheeled out of her Beverly Hills mansion on a stretcher. She was committed to a psychiatric ward on two occasions in 2008 (known in California as a 5150 hold); it was after the second hold that James Spears petitioned L.A. County Superior Court, per The Guardian, for an emergency “temporary conservatorship.” It was made permanent by the end of the year.

While the the exact conservatorship proceedings for Britney’s case are unknown, it’s not uncommon for an alleged mentally incapacitated person to be evaluated by a psychiatrist. “The psychiatrist’s role in conservatorship proceedings is to evaluate the medical, environmental, psychological, behavioral, relationship, and emotional factors that are relevant to the case at hand,” Florida-based board-certified psychiatrist Sean Paul, MD, tells Health

There’s a lot that goes into this process, including clinical evaluations and interviews, psychological testing, medical testing as needed (e.g. labs and CT scans), and a full review of all available records. “After putting these pieces of information together, the psychiatrist delivers an objective opinion though written reports, depositions and/or court testimony,” Dr. Paul says. 

Is it normal for a conservatorship to last this long? 

Britney’s conservatorship has been in place for 12 years, which might seem like a long time—but we don’t know what’s been happening behind the scenes. Fans raised concerns over her mental health in January 2019 when her “Britney: Domination” performance residency in Las Vegas was put on hold indefinitely

Though much of Spears’s arrangement is kept private in a Los Angeles probate court because of her fame, filings have cited an undisclosed mental illness and substance abuse as the reasons for the decade-long conservatorship, per The New York Times. There were also unverified reports that Britney had checked into a mental health facility. 

Reischer says the length of a conservatorship varies depending on the circumstances, but adds that it’s not unusual for it to continue until the death of the conservatee. “Sometimes, depending on the circumstances, it can be modified or even fully terminated by court order,” he adds. Britney can petition the court to end the conservatorship at any time, but she would have to provide enough evidence of changed circumstances to persuade the court to modify or dismiss the order. “Many conservatorships are temporary, but for those with persistent and severe mental illness, a permanent or long-time conservator can be the safest option,” Dr. DeSilva says. 

In Britney’s case, that’s about as much as we know right now. Montgomery will remain as Britney’s current conservator until at least February 2021—past that, her conservatorship status will depend on how future court proceedings go.

Britney Spears’ Conservatorship: Dad Jamie’s Role Remains Unchanged After She Asks Court to Drop Him – Entertainment Tonight

Britney Spears‘ requests on her long-standing conservatorship have gone unaddressed, days after the singer asked that her father, Jamie Spears, be removed as her conservator.

In a hearing on Wednesday, Jamie’s role in Britney’s conservatorship remained unchanged, according to the latest court docs obtained by ET. The hearing was a scheduled status conference, where Los Angeles Judge Brenda Penny granted the motion to seal a hearing and transcripts in Britney’s conservatorship case.

According to the docs, the temporary letters of conservatorship were extended through Feb. 1, 2021. Britney’s attorney, Samuel Ingham, has until Sept. 18 to file a petition.

Britney fans held a #FreeBritney protest outside the Stanley Mosk Courthouse in Los Angeles during the hearing. Elizabeth Dinon, a supporter of the #FreeBritney movement, tells ET that the singer’s ex-husband, Jason Alexander, was in attendance and arrived to the protest around 11:30 a.m. Dinon describes Alexander as having a “good spirit” and says he told her he was there because he stands with the #FreeBritney movement.

“He’s really happy to be here, super friendly, extremely thankful for us and this,” Dinon says.

In court documents obtained by ET earlier this week, the 38-year-old singer’s attorney stated that Britney doesn’t want her father to be her conservator. The docs stated that Britney wants Jodi Montgomery — her longtime care manager — to continue in that role after her court appointment expires on Aug. 22. Montgomery was appointed to serve as Britney’s temporary conservator in September 2019 after Jamie petitioned the court to hand over the reins, citing ongoing health issues.

“[Jamie] previously served as sole conservator of her person since 2008,” the court documents state. “Britney is strongly opposed to having [Jamie] return as conservator of her person. Rather, she strongly prefers to have Ms. Montgomery continue in that role as she has done for nearly a year. … Britney would like Ms. Montgomery’s appointment as conservator of her person to be made permanent.”

According to the documents, Britney also doesn’t want 68-year-old Jamie to be the sole handler of her financial affairs.

“Britney is strongly opposed to Jamie continuing as sole conservator of her estate,” the documents state. “Rather, without in any way waiving her right to seek termination of this conservatorship in the future, she strongly prefers to have a qualified corporate fiduciary appointed to serve in this role.”

Britney’s attorney laid out her conservatorship and how it’s evolved in three distinct phases as her life has changed over the years in the documents. The first phase is described as “triage” — her conservators “rescued her from a collapse, exploitation by predatory individuals and financial ruin.” The second phase covered Britney’s performing years, when she had multiple world tours and a successful Las Vegas residency. But now, the current third phase of the conservatorship reflects Britney’s desire to no longer perform.

“We are now at a point where the conservatorship must be changed substantially in order to reflect the major changes in her current lifestyle and her stated wishes,” the documents read.

Earlier this month, Jamie spoke out about his daughter’s conservatorship and the #FreeBritney movement in an interview with Page Six. Jamie called the movement — which advocates for the end of Britney’s conservatorship — “a joke.”

“All these conspiracy theorists don’t know anything. The world don’t have a clue,” he said. “It’s up to the court of California to decide what’s best for my daughter. It’s no one else’s business.”

“I love my daughter,” he continued. “I love all my kids. But this is our business. It’s private.”

Jamie also denied rumors that he or anyone else is taking money from the singer’s estate, saying, “I have to report every nickel and dime spent to the court every year. How the hell would I steal something?”

Britney Spears ‘Strongly Opposed’ to Father Resuming Conservatorship – Rolling Stone

Britney Spears is “strongly opposed” to her father, James “Jamie” Spears, resuming his role as her conservator and overseer of her financial affairs and estate per a new court filing, as New York Times reports. For more than a decade, the pop star has been subject to a conservatorship, where a judge appoints a guardian to manage the financial and personal affairs for someone who is incapacitated or incapable of making those decisions soundly on their own.

Spears was first placed under a conservatorship in 2008 following a series of public breakdowns. However, in the filing by lawyer Samuel D. Ingham, Spears feels the structure of the conservatorship “must change substantially in order to reflect the major changes in her current lifestyle and her stated wishes.”

Her father served as her conservator until last fall when he stepped back from the post following health issues. Since then, licensed conservator Jodi Montgomery has taken on the role. According to the court filing, Spears is “strongly opposed” to her father returning as her conservator and overseer of her estate and implied she may seek to end the conservatorship for good.

“Without in any way waiving her right to seek termination of this conservatorship in the future,” Ingham wrote in the filing, via New York Times, “Britney would like Ms. Montgomery’s appointment as conservator of her person to be made permanent.” Spears also “strongly prefers to have a qualified corporate fiduciary appointed” to manage her financial affairs and estate in lieu of her father. A status hearing in the case is scheduled in Los Angeles on Wednesday.

Ingham declined to comment.

A growing group of supporters, who have been concerned about Spears and questioned the conditions and motives of her conservatorship, have been advocating for the pop star under the hashtag #FreeBritney. Her father addressed the movement in an interview with Page Six.

“All these conspiracy theorists don’t know anything. The world don’t have a clue,” he said. “It’s up to the court of California to decide what’s best for my daughter. It’s no one else’s business.” “I love my daughter,” he added.

Britney Spears’ Dad Speaks Out About Her Conservatorship and the #FreeBritney Movement – E! NEWS

Britney Spears, Jamie Spears InstagramInstagram

Britney Spears‘ dad isn’t holding back his thoughts.

Jamie Spears opened up about his daughter’s conservatorship and the #FreeBritney movement in a candid interview with The Post on Saturday, August 1. According to the publication, the pop star’s father described the call to #FreeBritney as “a joke.”

“All these conspiracy theorists don’t know anything. The world don’t have a clue,” he told the publication. “It’s up to the court of California to decide what’s best for my daughter. It’s no one else’s business.”

Jamie also addressed claims that he has been taking money from his daughter’s estate. “I have to report every nickel and dime spent to the court every year. How the hell would I steal something,” he said.

In terms of the “Stronger” singer’s passionate fanbase, Jamie explained that some have taken things too far.

“People are being stalked and targeted with death threats. It’s horrible. We don’t want those kinds of fans. I love my daughter,” he expressed, with the outlet noting he got emotional.

“I love all my kids. But this is our business. It’s private,” he closed.

As most fans know, Britney has been in a 12-year legal conservatorship. It went into effect in 2008 after she suffered from a public breakdown. The future of her conservatorship will be discussed later this month.

The court will determine whether or not her conservatorship will be extended beyond August 22.

Britney Spears’ Brother Reveals Details About Her Conservatorship

The singer’s brother, Bryan, shared his thoughts about Britney’s situation in a rare interview last month.

“It’s very frustrating to have. Whether someone’s coming in peace to help or coming in with an attitude, having someone constantly tell you to do something has got to be frustrating,” he said on the As Not Seen on TV podcast.

He explained that he’s aware of the #FreeBritney movement and that people believe his sister is being “held against her will in some capacity.” However, Bryan pointed out the conservatorship has been “a great thing for our family.”

“We kind of came together and not everybody agreed with it either; everyone had their own opinion like, maybe we should do it this way or that way,” he explained of his sister’s conservatorship in the beginning. “But, at the end, I think we made the right choice.”

In regard to his father Jamie, Bryan said, “In general, he’s done the best he could given the situation he’s in.” 

Jamie temporarily stepped down as Britney’s conservator in September 2019, according to documents obtained by E! News at the time. Britney’s care manager, Jodi Montgomery, took over for her father.

However, on Jan. 31, 2020, Jamie was once again in charge of the singer’s conservatorship.
