Britney Spears in court, in bid to end father’s control over finances and career

News Correspondent

Her fans formed a Free Britney campaign to get her out of it: and tonight the pop star Britney Spears will be back in court in Los Angeles, in her latest bid to change a legal arrangement – called a conservatorship – which gives her father control of her career, estate and much of her personal life.

The controversial arrangement has come under fresh scrutiny thanks to a new documentary raising questions about the whole process – as well as the singer’s treatment by the media.

Parts of this report by Ayshah Tull were filmed during different stages of lockdown restrictions in LA.
