For over a decade, a movement has been growing in response to what many believed was simply a conspiracy regarding one of the world’s most famous pop stars. To imagine that Britney Spears, one of the most well-known names on the planet, could be trapped in plain sight for so long seemed impossible, though others continued to petition for her autonomy over her hard-earned finances and her life at large with the hashtag #FreeBritney. Now, that alleged “conspiracy” is turning out to have chilling truth to it.
There are shocking new updates almost every day as her court case accelerates. Spears's new layer, Mathew Rosengart, has stayed true to his promise to act swiftly and agressively. He and Spears have already signed a new petition to remove her father, Jamie Spears, as her conservator. They ask the jude to appoint a certified public accountant called Jason Rubin as her new conservator. Rubin is a well-respected professional who should be able to make more impartial decisions than the current team managing her life and finances. The road to ending the 13-year conservatorship is a long one, but this is an important first step.
