A judge granted Britney Spears’ request to go directly to court in her conservatorship case. The singer asked for a status hearing so she could speak in court and the date set by Judge Brenda Penny was for June 23.

“My client has requested a hearing at which she can address the court directly,” her attorney Samuel Ingham had said at the time of reporting the request.

The singer has been under the guardianship of her father, Jamie Spears, for the past 13 years, following a court decision. However, Britney has said she no longer wants her father to act as her guardian.

In March, in an interview with CNN, the father’s lawyer, Vivian Lee Thoreen, indicated his willingness to end the legal conservatorship as soon as the conditions are met. “If she wants to terminate it, she can file a petition.”

Comeback tour?

Similarly, in February Britney Spears had said that she wanted to be a “normal” person to return to the stage. She assured that she is doing what is necessary to achieve it. Spears made the comment while reacting to the documentary Framing Britney Spears, which premiered on Hulu and FX.

“We all have so many different bright beautiful lives!! Remember, no matter what we think we know about a person’s life it is nothing compared to the actual person living behind the lens” the 39-year-old added on her Twitter account.
