Pop star Britney Spears asked a judge to end her father’s conservatorship power over her by citing some of the more bizarre conditions she has been forced to live under for 13 years, notes VICE:
Spears said her lawyer, whom she did not choose, never told her that she could ask a judge to end the conservatorship:
The New York Times reports that Spears father, James Spears, makes $16,000 per month as a salary for being her conservator, twice the monthly allowance the singer is given. James also gets money from his daughter’s world tours, which she has stopped along with her Las Vegas residency.
Spears isn’t allowed to have control of her own credit cards, and must get her dad’s approval for basic decisions such as repainting her kitchen cabinets and making new friends.
