Britney Spears’ mother, Lynne Spears, has said that she is torn over her daughter’s conservatorship battle.
The New Yorker published an article detailing how the court-appointed guardianship came, including Britney’s years-long efforts to regain autonomy. Journalists Jia Tolentino and Pulitzer Prize winner Ronan Farrow spoke to a number of sources who shed light on the situation, including a former housekeeper, family friends, and Britney’s mom, Lynne Spears.
“I got mixed feelings about everything,” Lynne said. “I don’t know what to think … It’s a lot of pain, a lot of worry.” And told the writers that she may “hang up abruptly” if a family member unexpectedly walked into the room. “I’m good. I’m good at deflecting,” she continued.
Just days after Britney formally asked the court to terminate her conservatorship, Lynne’s attorney, Gladstone Jones, described his client as a “very concerned mother.”
This comes days after the court denied Britney Spears’ request to have her father removed from her conservatorship. The next hearing for the case is scheduled for July 14.
