Britney says won't perform while father controls career

Britney Spears on Saturday (July 17) said she would not perform again while her father retains control over her career, adding that the conservatorship she has been under for 13 years had quote "killed my dreams."

Her remarks, in a lengthy Instagram post, were the latest in a series of emotional public comments.

The conservatorship controls her personal and financial affairs and she's begged for it to be brought to an end.

The pop star's father, Jamie Spears, has sole control of his daughter's $60 million estate under the court-appointed arrangement that he set up in 2008.

39-year-old Spears has undisclosed mental health issues and has not performed in public since late 2018.

This week she appointed a new lawyer to represent her in her bid to bring the conservatorship to an end, calling it abusive.

Spears and her lawyer have yet to file a formal request to end the conservatorship. The next court hearing is Sept. 29 in Los Angeles.
