“I’m here to get rid of my dad and charge him with conservatorship abuse,” Spears said. She also said she was “extremely scared” of her father and that “this conservatorship has allowed my dad to ruin my life.”
Spears also reiterated some of the claims she made during her explosive June 23rd hearing, saying that her conservatorship controlled every part of her life and that she’d been forced to work 70 hours per week. “Their goal was to make me feel crazy and I’m not,” Spears said. “And that’s not ok.”
