Britney Spears latest news – Pop star’s boyfriend Sam Asghari preaches about ‘self-love’ after conservatorship hearing
BRITNEY Spears’ boyfriend Sam Asghari preached about the importance of “self-love” in a social media post days after her conservatorship hearing.

“Don’t let anything, any distractions take you away from your self-discipline, from your self-love, your self-development.”
At her court hearing this week, Britney compared her “abusive” conservatorship to sex trafficking as she spoke out for the first time since her public breakdown in 2007, causing the star’s mother to be “concerned.”
She exclaimed she is “not a slave” and said she is “so angry” she wants to “sue” her family for years of “abuse.”
The singer addressed the court by video as her dad, Jamie, and mom, Lynne, also joined in.

‘#FREEBRITNEY’ FANS CREATE PETITION
Fans have started a change.org petition demanding to allow Britney to choose her own lawyer in her conservatorship case.
“Since 2008 Britney Spears has been held in a conservatorship, this gives her conservator, Jamie Spears, full control over her life, body and finances/estate,” the petition writes.
“Conservatorships are typically used for SEVERELY mentally ill individuals or people in comas. Having been on 4 world tours with dangerous flying and fire stunts, it’s safe to say she is sane enough to feed and clothe herself.”
“With this conservatorship she is unable to properly fight for her freedom as she isn’t legally allowed to hire her own lawyer. We need this petition so that Britney can hire her own lawyer and live a normal life as a 38 year old woman with two kids.”
