There are Britney Spears headed to Washington?
The pop star and her lawyer, Matthew Rosengart, were invited by Congress to speak on guardianship and compliance. The Capitol Hill mission came after Spears’ recent legal victory – the singer was released from 13-year custody in November 2021.
In a letter dated December 1, 2021, the singer was addressed by Congressmen Charlie Christ and Eric Swalwell, who congratulated the star and her lawyer on their “historic victories.”
“It is clear that we have been following your care closely and were delighted that you were able to remove your father from the post of longtime Conservative in September and finally end your guardianship completely in November,” Christ and Swalwell wrote. “Your path to justice will inspire and enable many others who are improperly silenced in the process of preservation.”
On Wednesday, Spears posted a letter in her Instagram, telling her followers that she got it a few months ago and was “immediately delighted” but was not yet in the “hthe casting stage ”at which it is now.
“I am grateful that my story was even recognized,” the pop star wrote to her followers on social media. “Because of the letter, for the first time in my life I felt that I had heard and seemed to matter !!!”
“In a world where your own family is going against you, it’s really hard to find people who understand that and show compassion !!!!” Spears continued on Instagram. “Again, I’m not here to be a victim, although I’m the first to admit that I was very confused … I want to help others who are in a vulnerable situation, take their lives by the sword and be brave !! !! I wish I was … I was so scared and there is nothing worse than your own family doing what they did to me … I am lucky to have a small circle of adorable friends, on which I can count. “
Spears finished her inscription by writing, “Meanwhile, thank Congress for inviting me to the White House.”
Tells a person close to the pop star Variety that Spears and Rosengart were formally invited by Congress to testify. It is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post.
In the letter, members of Congress noted that Spears was allegedly forced to work against her will while she was in custody – to which Spears drew the court’s attention when she testified in June 2021telling Judge Brande Penny that she was forced to perform if she didn’t want to tour.
Congressmen also wrote that Spears had failed to elect her attorney for most of her conservatism. (Having worked with a court-appointed attorney for more than a decade, Spears was granted the right to obtain their own lawyer in the summer of 2021, about a month after she publicly testified about “conservation abuses” that she said she endured and she hired Rosengart.)
“Many problems have been identified in the ordinary course of custody and guardianship,” members of Congress wrote in a letter to Spears. “Of particular concern was the news that for years you could not hire your own lawyer to represent your personal and financial interests. Other issues related to the initial petition, the final preservation of the conservatory, and the compulsion to work against your will are the same.
“To this end,” the letter continues, “we would like to personally invite you and your lawyer to meet with us in Congress at a convenient time for everyone to describe in your own words how you have achieved justice. There is no doubt that your story will enable countless others other than the millions who are already inspired by you and your art. Please know that you have absolutely no obligation to do anything more than fight for yourself, but if you want, we would appreciate learning more about the emotional and financial upheavals you have faced in the guardianship system. ”
Spears Conservatory was discontinued more than 13 years later. In September, before the village the court stopped himSpears ’father, Jamie Spears, was rejected from the conservatory which he has overseen since 2007, when his famous daughter was placed under court agreement.
This is not the first time Spears has attracted the attention of politicians, hoping to use the pop star’s story to change legislation.
Prior to the termination of her right to preservation, when a documentary about the history of Spears was aired, the battle for the preservation of the singer attracted the attention of Republicans of the House of Representatives, who were seeking hearings on the case of the pop star. “In recent years, there has been growing public concern about the use of conservatives to effectively deprive individuals of their personal liberty on the orders of others through judicial manipulation … perhaps the most striking example is the case of multi-platinum artist Britney Spears,” wrote Matt Goetz and Jim. Jordan in a March 8 letter to the House Judicial Committee. (Last summer, Goetz appeared at one of Spears’ hearings in Los Angeles and dumped her father near the courthouse.)
And in July there was the so-called “Britney Bill” with bipartisan supporters introduced in Congressdesigned to combat conservation abuse.
Over the last decade, but especially in the last year, Spears ’history has sparked international interest, sparking talk of conservatories. Prior to her court battle and the #FreeBritney movement most people didn’t know what conservatism was, but with the world-famous Spears the public was educated about conservation and abuse within the system.
Currently Spears the litigation continues with both sides arguing over finances.
