Just a day after Britney’s ongoing conservatorship hearing in Los Angeles, her brother, Bryan Spears, opened up in a rare interview about the #FreeBritney movement.
“There was obviously a need for it in the beginning”
Bryan was asked about the latest drama surrounding her conservatorship, to which he explained that although it has been beneficial, Britney ultimately would like to get out of it.”She’s been in this thing for quite some time now. Obviously there was a need for it in the beginning,” Bryan said.
In 2007, the pop singer had a publicized breakdown resulting in her being placed under a conservatorship in 2008. A judge appointed Britney’s father, Jamie Spears as her legal guardian. As the conservator of her affairs, Jamie made calls on everything, from the singer’s finances to personal decisions.
“He did the best he could, given the situation he was put in.”
Speaking about their father, Bryan said the patriarch, has “done the best he could, given the situation he was put in.”
The singer’s brother also recalled how “we’ve had to work together as a family to keep it all going. One person might be on stage and doing this, but it’s a sacrifice from everybody. Everyone is putting in, to some degree, a little bit to keep everything going.”
In September 2019, Jamie stepped down as Britney’s permanent conservator after more than a decade, due to “personal health reasons.” It was reported last fall that Britney’s longtime care manager, Jodi Montgomery had taken over. Britney’s conservatorship was recently extended until at least August 22 after a hearing on the matter couldn’t take place due to the coronavirus pandemic.
“The conservatorship has been a great thing for our family”
Britney’s fans have launched a Change.org campaign, asking for the singer to have access to her own lawyer to help her get out of the conservatorship. Speaking about their concerns, Bryan added. “I am aware that [fans] feel like maybe she’s being confined or held against her will in some capacity. But, [the conservatorship] has been a great thing for our family, to this point, and [we] keep hoping for the best.”
“She’s wanted to get out of it for quite some time”
Bryan, who said he and Britney “speak constantly,” expressed his opinions on the conservatorship possibly coming to an end. “She’s always wanted to get out of it. It’s very frustrating to have,” he said on the podcast. “Whether someone’s coming in peace to help or coming in with an attitude. Having someone constantly tell you to do something has got to be frustrating. She’s wanted to get out of it for quite some time.”
Meanwhile, Britney has been keeping her fans updated on her life under stay-at-home orders amid the coronavirus pandemic. The singer who is fairly active on Instagram, shares dance routines on her favorite songs, answers fan questions and spends quality time with her boyfriend, Sam Asghari.
Britney’s sons Jayden, 13, and Sean, 14, have been spending time with their father and her former spouse, Kevin Federline.
