Britney Spears fans are making a scene outside the Los Angeles Superior Court as the singer’s conservatorship battle heats up.
#FreeBritney supporters will be protesting today ahead of the important court hearing this afternoon. We’re told the fans are front and center with signs outside the Stanley Mosk Courthouse. They are hoping the judge in the case sides with Britney and removes her father Jamie Spears as a co-conservator.
In recent court documents, Britney argued her dad was making bad decisions when it came to her estate.

The fans have been sharing videos from the scene today. They have been talking through megaphones saying, “Almost 13 years ago she was stripped of her civil rights by the Los Angeles Superior Court. We are here to raise awareness about conservatorship abuse. We are here to stand for justice and support Britney Spears. We are here to support everyone affected/exploited by the probate court.”
The judge is expected to go over several important motions filed in Britney’s conservatorship.
As The Blast previously reported, Britney is currently battling her father Jamie Spears in court over control of her life and finances. The singer has been pleading with the court to remove her dad and strip his powers away.
In recent documents, Britney accuses her father of being a tad reckless with her money and failing to negotiate good deals for her. She says her longtime business manager, Tri Star Sports & Entertainment Group, recently resigned due to alleged death threats.
Britney says her dad went out and hired another manager without consulting her or allowing her the chance to interview the man.
Britney said this decision caused concern because she believes her father’s goal, “is to introduce a new gatekeeper who admittedly has a major working relationship with [Jamie’s] legal team.”
In new court docs, Britney says she also has issues with Jamie paying Tri-Star over $300,000 for 2019. She says the management firm had been on paid a 5% commission off her projects.
Britney had no issue with the commissions until 2019, which is the year she announced her “indefinite work hiatus.” She says months after she announced her break, Tri-Star asked for an increase in their salary. Tri-Star reportedly demanded they be paid a minimum of $500,000 per year plus 5% commission.
Britney says her dad agreed to the demand without even trying to negotiate the amount. She says the amount is a little absurd due to her not even working during 2019.
