BRITNEY Spears "may speak in court last minute" and is "the most hopeful for this hearing than ever" since her conservatorship started.

The most recent hearing in the singer's conservatorship battle is taking place in Los Angeles on Wednesday.

Before Britney's most recent hearing began, a source close to the singer told The Sun: “There’s a chance she can join last minute like she did last time but today, we largely expect Jamie to take up most of the time talking.

"Britney has said all she has needed to say publicly for now so no, she will not be part of today’s hearing.

"She is in constant contact with her lawyer Mathew and will get updates from that.

"Her mother Lynne will also make a statement."

The informant continued: "Judge Brenda Penny has a lot to say as well.

"Britney is the most hopeful for this hearing than those close to her have ever seen since the conservatorship started.”

Wednesday's hearing is the most highly anticipated one since Britney, 39, testified during a previous hearing in June.

During the June hearing, the singer made shocking allegations and made it clear she wants to end the conservatorship that has lasted for 13 years.


While Britney is not present in court, her parents Jamie and Lynne Spears will be appearing via Zoom.

Additionally, the singer's attorney, Mathew Rosengart, will be at the hearing.

The purpose of Wednesday's hearing is to share arguments on ending the conservatorship, which was originally set for January 28.

However, the hearing was moved up to today.

No one is expected to object to dismantling the conservatorship, though it's still unlikely the judge will end it during the hearing.

Jamie's attorney, Vivian Thoreen, will also be in attendance.


A possible outcome for the hearing could see Judge Penny could ordering another mental evaluation for Britney or a mediation where all the parties get together and come up with a plan on how to transition out of the conservatorship.

Under the conservatorship, Britney has no legal control over her estate or her assets.

Those rights were granted to her father and a lawyer over a decade ago.

The singer is said to be worth $59million.


During the June hearing, Britney made a number of shocking claims regarding the conservatorship.

Britney gave a sensational testimony in front of a court and pleaded with a judge to end the arrangement, saying it is" doing me way more harm than good."

She  told the court she wants to marry her boyfriend Sam Asghari, 27, and have a baby, but that the conservatorship won't allow it.

The couple have since become engaged.

Britney said her silence over the years has mistakenly been interpreted as complicity, stating: "I've lied and told the whole world, 'I'm okay, I'm happy.' I've been in denial, I've been in shock. I am traumatized."

Additionally, Britney claimed nurses watch her every move and she's not allowed to change her clothes in private.

She added her father was controlling and "enjoyed" the power over her.

"I cried on the phone for an hour and he loved every minute of it," the singer said. "The control he had over someone as powerful as me, as he loved the control to hurt his own daughter 100,000%."
