Britney Spears‘ former attorney is setting the record straight about her conservatorship and the nasty battle between the singer and her father.
Adam Streisand, who was hired by Britney she was put into the conservatorship, sat down with producers of the forthcoming documentary, “Framing Britney Spears.” The lawyer, who specializes in managing celebrity estates, was brought on by the singer during her public breakdown in 2008.
At the time, Adam told the court Britney did not want her father Jamie Spears to be apart of any conservatorship and demanded he not have any power over her life and finances.

The judge presiding over the case refused to allow Adam to represent Britney despite his claims she hired him. Regardless, he still had interactions with Britney and believed she truly did not want Jamie to have control.
In the past, Adam said Britney never appeared crazy, “just agitated. She understood the concept of a conservatorship but did not want her father to be the conservator.”
In the new trailer for the FX documentary, Adam is asked whether Britney was opposed to her father around.
He said, “Britney did not want her father to be the conservator of her person, the person who makes decisions about her medical care and treatment, she also didn’t want him controlling her finances.”
Adam said Britney did hire him after she was released from the hospital in 2008. He claims the judge looked over medical records, which he was never shown, and made the decision to remove him from the courtroom without further explanation.
The lawyer is not the only one speaking out in support of Britney.
As The Blast previously reported, Felicia Culotta, Britney’s ex-assistant, also sat down for a lengthy interview with the documentary producers. The film is set to take a deep dive into Britney’s inner circle and calls into question the need for a conservatorship. Felicia is known by Britney fans as being a close confidante to the star for years.
Felicia said she is unsure what a conservatorship really is accomplishing. She said she isn’t confident Britney needs to be controlled by the court given her many professional accomplishments.
