June 23, 2021: Britney Spears Speaks Out in Court
The singer appeared virtually before a Los Angeles court to request that her years-long conservatorship be terminated. While addressing the court, Britney candidly detailed the "abusive" treatment she has received through the conservatorship, including not being able to have kids or get married. "I've lied and told the whole world I'm OK and I'm happy," she said. "If I said that enough, maybe I'd become happy . . . I'm in shock. I'm traumatized . . . I'm so angry it's insane."
