American singer-songwriter Britney Spears recently joined the social media movement to free her from her conservatorship.
Quoting sources, TMZ has reported that Britney opened up in front of the judge on Friday, stating that her father Jamie Spears committed her to a mental health facility a month ago against her will and also forced her to take drugs.
TMZ broke the story: Britney spent 30 days at an L.A. mental health facility after she began rapidly going downhill. She stopped taking the drugs that kept her stable after they stopped working and doctors still have been unable to find the right combination.
Jamie Spears does not have the power under the conservatorship to either commit Britney against her will. A mental health facility that accepted an adult patient against the patient's will when the conservator did not have such power would be committing a crime. And remember, Britney frequently left the place and was seen out and about, as reported by TMZ.
The judge took no action and has ordered an expert to evaluate Britney and until the evaluation is on, there will be no change in the conservatorship. But it seems that it has clearly created a family war.
In January, Spears announced that she was taking an indefinite break from work to support her father. After which she was sent to mental health care to seek treatment.
The 'Toxic' singer left the mental health facility after a month of treatment.
