“It was like sex trafficking”: Britney Spears pleads for freedom from toxic father

Published

on

Superstar Britney Spears has addressed a US court, discussing her controversial conservatorship that has sparked a global movement.

Spears spoke for around 20 minutes, reading from a letter and saying she just wants her life back.

She continued saying “a lot has happened since two years ago, the last time I was in court. I haven’t been back to court because I didn’t feel I was heard”.

It has also been revealed that Britney was forced to perform, given no privacy and was made to use birth control, take medication and attend therapy sessions against her will.

Britney says the drug she was forced to take can make people become mentally impaired if used for longer than five months.

From the letter, she reads “I felt drunk, I couldn’t even have a conversation with my mom or dad about anything. They had me with six different nurses.”

This is the first time Spears has addressed a court since her attorney filed to suspend her father as conservator of Spear’s estate. 

Jamie Spears has been Britney’s conservator since 2008 following a spate of personal battles, which were often played out in the public eye.

In regards to the role her father plays, Britney says “the control he had to hurt his own daughter… he loved it. I worked seven days a week … it was like sex trafficking. I didn’t have a credit card, cash or my passport.”

Spears added “anything I had to do, my dad was the one who approved all of it. My whole family did nothing.”

If you’re lucky to be heading abroad this summer, a visit to the famous canals in Venice, Italy might be on your itinerary, but beware of new fees to come.

Venice will charge most of its visitors an entry fee from next year as it tries to tackle overcrowding.

The city’s tourism chief says Venice are pioneers and will be the first city in the world to apply a measure that could be revolutionary.

From mid January next year, day-trippers must book their visit online before travelling.

They will pay a basic fee of 3 euro, which will rise to 10 euro at peak times.

Tourism is bouncing back in Venice after the pandemic with daily visitors again often outnumbering the 50-thousand residents of the city centre.

The scheme will be closely watched by other popular tourist destinations, overwhelmed with travellers around the world.
