An attorney for the pop star said she wished to address the court directly. A date has been set for June.
The pop star has requested that her father, Jamie Spears, be permanently removed from overseeing her personal affairs in her conservatorship.
This recent decision in court over Britney Spears’ conservatorship serves as a small win for the #FreeBritney movement.
The pop star's longtime beau offered both words of support for his girlfriend and spoke out against her father, who largely controls her conservatorship.
“The world is watching,” the singer said in a court document filed Thursday that seeks to oust her father as the conservator of her estate.
“There is a harm in a court telling a person that she is not allowed to make her own choices,” a lawyer from the ACLU told HuffPost.
The singer's attorney said that he expects James Spears will aggressively contest being marginalized
In recent weeks, the pop star's family has been speaking out against claims that the conservatorship placed on the 38-year-old is holding her "hostage."
The Spears family has frequently fought the singer's former manager Sam Lutfi in court, starting with a previous restraining order in 2009.
TMZ reports that Spears made the accusation during a closed-door court session in Los Angeles.
