They believe that the pop-star was living a restricted life under all the conservatorship conditions. However, neither her family nor the 38-year old singer herself has commented about these things in public. We all know that Britney was put under a conservatorship by her father. It was after the singer had a meltdown in public. Later, there was also an incident that took place at the UCLA Medical Center’s psychiatric ward back in 2008.
In 2019, Britney appeared in public and made a shocking announcement. She said that she was about to take an indefinite break from work leading to a pause in her Las Vegas Residency. After two months of her announcement, the singer went into a mental health facility in California. She stayed there for a month and left after that. According to a representative, she was feeling much fresh and rejuvenated. While on one hand, Britney Spears was constantly trying to break free from her conservatorship after her release from the mental hospital, things don’t seem to work in her favor. Now the duration of her conservatorship has got an extension till the mid of August.
A source close to Britney says that the singer feels that she does not want to get back to work anymore. The most important reason for such a decision is that she wants to break free from the conservatorship. She also dislikes the fact that her father gets around $10,000 monthly to take care of her finances.
