Many do not know that for the majority of her life, Britney Spears, 38, has been under legal guardianship of her father Jamie Spears as her sole conservator. On August 22, her lawyer stated that she is strongly against  the this. Fox News reported that they got a hold of records that show the conservatorship has been extended until 2021. 

Spears has filed documents requesting that the role be transferred to Jodi Montgomery, her temporary conservator since September of last year.Her brother also said in an interview that Britney has wanted out of the conservatorship for quite a while. 

The singer has little to no control over anything in her life, including her money and career. the #FreeBritney campaign has been launched by fans to show their support and solidarity for the pop star, and the ACLU also extended their aid to her. The singer no longer has custody of her children from her relationship with rapper Kevin Federline since 2008 when the police arrived at her house as she appeared to be under an unidentified substance. After she was committed to a psychiatric ward, the court put her under temporary conservatorship of her father. It was later assigned permanent. He issued restraining orders to many people in Britney's life, including her manager at the time, claiming that they were trying to take charge of her personal and career affairs. 

It is unclear whether the star will be free of conservatorship any time soon, but maybe celebrities have shown their support and fans are staying strong and carrying on the fight for her justice and freedom.
