Britney Spears Leaves Court Barefoot After Expert Evaluation Ordered

On Friday, May 10, 2019, Britney Spears and her mother Lynne Spears appeared at a hearing to address her 11-year conservatorship. A point for Jamie Lynn and a point for the Spears fam - but more to the point, maybe, is why the hell are trolls criticizing Britney (and her family) when she's clearly going through a rough time??

Pop star Britney Spears attended a court hearing with her parents in Los Angeles on Friday, but the details of the appearance mostly remain under wraps. Reporters and onlookers were removed from the courtroom and the hearing was closed.

A judge ordered 44-year-old Sam Lutfi, who has been in legal fights with the Spears family for a decade, to stay at least 200 yards from her, her parents and her two sons, who are 12 and 13. The children were born extremely close together and Britney's ex-husband, Kevin Federline, has custody of the boys.

Lynne isn't the only family member sticking by Britney's side. "Only through the intervention of the conservatorship years ago (and obtaining a temporary restraining order) was he effectively extracted from her life and her well being restored".


Conservatorship, known in many states as guardianship, is an involuntary status usually reserved for very elderly or very ill people who are suffering from dementia or otherwise incapacitated and unable to make decisions for themselves.

Outside the courthouse, about 20 Spears fans protested with signs that read "Free Britney" and "End the conservatorship now".

Sources told PEOPLE the singer, who entered through the building's back entrance with her mother, Lynne Spears, looked "comfortable, happy and glowing", despite the presence of #FreeBritney protesters in the courtyard. There is an "extreme conflict" between Lynne and Britney's father, Jamie Spears (they divorced in 2002), the outlet has reported before. A status hearing was set for September 18.

"All is well", Spears said in the Instagram video. Lynne Spears has not previously been involved in her daughter's conservatorship.


USA site The Blast claim the pop superstar's attorney filed the documents on her behalf on Tuesday in Los Angeles which, if granted, would slap a temporary restraining order against the business man.

According to restraining order granted, Lutfi will have to discontinue his "disparaging public statements regarding Ms. Spears, her conservator, or her family or her manager".

According to Sam's opposition filing, he insisted he hasn't contacted Britney since 2009 and doesn't feel an order should be granted based on tweets about the singer and texts to her mother.
