Britney Spears returns to court in guardianship case

Judge Brenda Penny is expected to consider several petitions filed since the case’s last hearing on July 14.

Jamie Spears, the singer’s father, served as her guardian Since 2008. Earlier this month, he petitioned to end the guardianship. His introduction came after two strong days of testimony from the pop star this summer in which she explained the many personal limitations she lived with under the arrangement she described as “cruelty.”

“I just want my life back,” Spears said in June. “It’s been 13 years and that’s enough.”

Matthew Rosengart, the singer’s attorney, has asked the court to remove Jamie Spears from a guardianship position. In a lawsuit obtained by CNN on Monday, Rosengart said his client’s father should be investigated for allegedly placing a tape recorder in her home, based on a report by New York times.

Jamie Spears’ attorney did not respond to a request for comment on the allegations, but in a recent statement to CNN he said he “unwaveringly loves his daughter.”

Britney Spears almost attended the previous sessions, called by phone. It is not known if she will appear at the Wednesday session in person.

The #FreeBritney movement, an organized supporter of the singer who has called for an end to her guardianship, will be outside the courtroom for a rally.

The session is scheduled to begin at 4:30 PM EST.
