Britney Spears is finally getting a chance to speak to the court directly about her conservatorship.
The pop star’s court-appointed lawyer, Samuel D. Ingham III, told the court in a hearing on Tuesday that he planned to submit a request for the “Toxic” singer to “address the court directly” on an “expedited basis” in 30 days.
“The conservatee has requested that I seek from the court a status hearing at which she can address the court directly,” Ingham III told Judge Brenda Penny.

Judge Penny also granted a continuance on everything brought forth by all parties involved, including accounting issues, fee requests, as well as requests to make Jodi Montgomery the Conservator of Person for 60-90 days — all of which will take place during a July court date. However, Spears will still speak to the court well beforehand on June 23, 2021.
The judge also granted a motion allowing the sealing of documents from public view pertaining to Montgomery, who is the temporary conservator of Spears’ person.
It is unclear what specific matters Spears would like to address, but Ingham III did say the June hearing would pertain to the “status of the conservatorship.” It will be the first time she has spoken to the court on the matter directly since May 10, 2019. At the time, the courtroom was sealed.
Last fall, a judge appointed the financial institution Bessmer Trust as a co-conservator for Spears. Spears’ father wanted to retain delegation power over the singer’s investments, but Judge Brenda Penny rejected the objection.
