Britney Spears: Fighting For Her Life back!

Britney Spears (39), a singer, a songwriter, a dancer, an actress, and two teenage children’s mother has been struggling for her finance-free life back from her father, who holds a conservatorship for his daughter for at least a decade. In the 1990s and 2000s, Spears was the best-selling teenage artist, and an idol of teenagers in America and worldwide, with more than 15 million copies of her album sold. She started her career at 15 years old. Her father Jamie Spears took conservatorship of his daughter the entire time and had control over every earning Britney has ever made.

On Tuesday, The New York Times cited recently obtained confidential court records, which reported that Spears has been trying to fight her conservatorship for years.

“She articulated she feels the conservatorship has become an oppressive and controlling tool against her,” a court investigator wrote in a 2016 report. The system had “too much control,” Ms. Spears said, according to the investigator’s account of the conversation, “Too, too much!”

Ms. Spears informed the investigator that she wanted the conservatorship terminated as soon as possible. “She is ‘sick of being taken advantage of,’ and she said she is the one working and earning her money but everyone around her is on her payroll,” the investigator wrote.

In 2019, she had felt forced by the conservatorship into staying at a mental facility against her will. The pop star’s fans began to question the ethics and legality of the arrangement, and hashtag #FreeBritney in their social networks to support their heroine back to life without any financial obstacles that she has hardly earned for her life.

In South Korea, a singer, Chang Yunjung who had been one of the highest earners of the Korean Folk Industry, had also had been exploited by her mother, eventually leading her to break their relationship a few years ago.

Parents want their children to succeed but can force the child to bear the burden of success while the parents reap the fruits of that labor. It is simply a modified version of child labor. At certain points, the children should have control over their own lives, including the money they make.
