Will Britney Spears speak in court on her conservatorship case?

Spears is set to speak in court for the first time at her conservatorship hearing on June 23.

The news comes as her dad Jamie fights to keep the singer under his control.

According to CNN, the singer's attorney Samuel D Ingham III spoke at a hearing on April 27 at Los Angeles Superior Court.

He stated: "Britney wants to address the court directly."

The attorney added that Spears would like it to happen within the next month.

Back in March, the singer asked a judge to permanently end her father's control over her $60million fortune and personal life.

The singer's attorney filed for Jodi Montgomery to officially replace her father as the permanent conservator over Spears' personal matters.

She also asked her father to resign from his role overseeing her personal life.

The legal documents also stated that Spears reserves the right to eventually request an end to the conservatorship completely.

Under the terms of the long-running conservatorship, the Toxic singer isn't allowed to drive, go out by herself, make any significant personal or financial decisions.

What has Jamie Spears' attorney said about the conservatorship?

While sources have said Spears' life "would drastically change for the better" if Jamie is removed, the father's lawyer Vivian Thoreen previously claimed the conservatorship "saved" the singer's life.

"I understand that every story needs a villain," the attorney previously said. "But people have it so wrong here."

"This is a story about a fiercely loving, dedicated, and loyal father who rescued his daughter from a life-threatening situation.

"People were harming her and they were exploiting her. Jamie saved Britney's life," she told Good Morning America.

What is the #FreeBritney movement?

Several fans have expressed their support for Spears throughout the legal drama as they've taken part in the #FreeBritney movement.

Some supporters have expressed that they believe the 39-year-old superstar is being manipulated and controlled under the grounds of her conservatorship.

Specifically, fans are calling for Spears to have access to her own lawyer in her case.

Others have taken to the streets all over the world to protest for the singer's freedom.

Amid the legal drama, Spears appears to want to move on with her life.

The singer reportedly has plans to marry her longtime boyfriend, Sam Asghari, have more children and return to singing.
