Following the alleged call to the sheriff’s department, Spears’ legal team reportedly started texting each other “frantically” and were worried that she was going to go “rogue” the next day in court.
During the “Toxic” hitmaker’s testimony, she called the conservatorship, owned by her father Jamie Spears, “abusive” and more. She also claimed she had been forced to work, take the psychotropic drug lithium and be under birth control against her will, NBC News reported.
Spears has been under conservatorship since 2008 that oversaw her and her estate after she went through a public spell of mental health issues.
