Britney Spears speaks out against conservatorship

Britney Spears is finally speaking out against her "oppressive" and "controlling" conservatorship.

During Spears appeared virtually by phone, before a court on Wednesday. She says "I've lied and told the whole world I'm OK and I'm happy. It's a lie. I've been in denial."

Amid a conversation regarding her 13-year long conservatorship, Britney Spears detailed her experience to the court. She recounts that she was required to take a medication that made her feel drunk. Additionally, she hasn't been allowed to go to the doctor to remove her IUD so that she can have another baby.

This is the first time the public hears alleged details about the court-ordered mandate.

“So basically this conservatorship is doing me way more harm than good,” she said. “I deserve to have a life. I’ve worked my whole life. I deserve to have a two- to three-year break and just, you know, do what I want to do."

Further, in a June 22 report from The New York Times, confidential court documents say the singer's been fighting to have her father's power over virtually every detail of her life, stripped. Whether it is who she decides to date to the color of her kitchen cabinets.

The judge set another court hearing for July 14.

Fans and celebrities offer a wave of love and support

Both supporters and activists gathered in Grand Park in downtown Los Angeles as part of a “#FreeBritney” rally. Other rallies are also scheduled across the country and internationally. Each group wishing Britney "good luck" and support before her testimony.
