UPDATE 5/15: Britney Spears former manager tells TMZ, “It’s clear to me she should not be going back to do this Vegas residency. Not in the near future and possibly never again.”
Ex-husband, Kevin Federline, has threatened to withhold visitation privileges with their two sons until she can prove she is “stable and on therapeutic medication.”
Meanwhile, Lynn Spears, Britney’s mother, has moved in with her and told photographers that Britney is doing ‘wonderful.’
UPDATE 5/13 12:50 P.M: TMZ reports Britney Spears confirmed allegations that she was committed to a mental institution against her will. Another new development– Judge Brenda Penny ordered a 730, which is commonly used in divorce cases to assess a child’s well-being. The assessment is scheduled to be completed by September. Sounds like all the #FreeBritney fodder had some truth to it?
Britney Spears appeared in an L.A. County courthouse Friday with her mom, Lynne Spears, who is trying to gain access to her medical information. This is a little tricky, given that Britney’s father, Jamie, has been her conservator since her public breakdown in 2008.
There have been rumors of Jamie, and others in Britney’s camp, abusing the conservatorship rights– the latest being Jamie forcing Britney into a mental health facility, making her take certain drugs, and not allowing her access to her money.
Britney was released from the facility a few weeks ago. Since then, her mother, Lynne, has been staying with her, and now, wanting access to her medical information.
The judge ordered an ‘expert evaluation’, but court documents don’t specify what the expert will be evaluating (?!). Britney also asked the judge to grant her certain freedoms under the conservatorship (ie: the ability to drive) but the judge did not grant her request.
It probably did not help her cause that she left the courthouse barefoot. Yep, no shoes, no socks, just barefoot.
