BRITNEY Spears’ conservatorship has been extended until “at least” February 2021 – despite her ongoing fight to be removed from the contact.
A judge at a Los Angeles court ruled on Wednesday that the 38-year-old pop star will remain under the legal control of her father, Jamie Spears, indefinitely, according to documents obtained by Variety.

Despite Britney filing a request earlier this week asking for her dad to be removed from the conservatorship, the extension remains until at least February 1, 2021.
The outlet reported that the singer’s dad and mom, Lynne – as well as four attorney’s – all took part in the discussions during the hearing.
Britney lost her battle to have her father removed as the sole guardian of her legal and financial affairs at an LA courthouse this week.
The Toxic songstress had asked a judge to make her temporary care manager Jodi Montgomery – who took over last year when her father became ill – to continue permanently as her conservator.

She “strongly opposed” Jamie being her sole conservator, court documents filed by her attorney revealed.
The documents also stated that “a major overhaul in how her conservatorship is run is needed to reflect her current lifestyle and her wishes” – confirming reports that the star no longer wishes to perform at this moment in time.
After Wednesday’s ruling, fans immediately expressed their fear for the singer’s well-being amid the ongoing campaign supporting the star.
Hordes of #FreeBritney supporters attended the hearing as they held banners demanding for the singer to be “freed” from her conservatorship.

“We don’t know when things will go back to normal but we are staying positive and learning so much about ourselves !!!!
“For me I want to thank all my dear … sweet … real fans for being so damn wonderful!!”

Why is #freebritney trending and what does the star have to say about her conservatorship?
Britney Spears’ conservatorship has sparked outrage among fans, particularly since she herself has made it clear she does not want it to continue in its current form.
It was implemented in 2008 after a series of public meltdowns.
Britney‘s conservatorship prevents her from controlling her life or having any access to her million-dollar fortune.
Britney’s lawyer, Samuel D Ingham III has said that she is “strongly opposed” to Jamie Spears continuing to control her affairs.
Due to health issues last year – which are came after claims of a physical altercation with his grandson Sean Preston – Jamie had stepped down temporarily from his role in Britney’s conservatorship.
Britney instead wants Jodi Montgomery, who is a trained conservator, to have permanent control.
Fans of Britney say the 38-year-old superstar is being manipulated and controlled under the grounds of her conservatorship.
Under the hashtag #freebritney, they’re calling for the end of her conservatorship
Jamie Spears says Britney’s conservatorship is “no one else’s business” and #FreeBritney movement “is a joke.”
Britney also shared a puzzling video in which she randomly listed all her favorite things.
“The first question you guys ask me is what’s my favorite holiday… my favorite holiday is probably Halloween just because I like getting dressed up.
“I love the candy and I love scaring people,” she added.
She went on to share that her favorite subject in school was history, her favorite designer is Tom Ford, her favorite restaurant is Mastro’s because she likes steak and baked potatoes.
