Britney Spears to speak in court at next conservatorship hearing

Britney Spears

Popstar Britney Spears will appear in court in June to speak on her long-running conservatorship case for the first time.

“My client (Britney Spears) has requested a hearing at which she can address the court directly,” the singer’s lawyer Samuel Ingham told the court on Tuesday. “My client has asked that it be done on an expedited basis.”

Spears will address the court on June 23, Reuters reports.

Her father, Jamie Spears was appointed conservator in 2008 after the pop star was hospitalized for psychiatric treatment following a widely publicized breakdown.

This will be the first time that the 39-year-old will speak publicly on the case.
