The battle of Britney Spears

Washington Post - 05-17


Britney Spears was photographed leaving a Los Angeles courthouse May 10 wearing a red skirt, black T-shirt and no shoes. Moments earlier, in a closed hearing room with paper covering the windows, her parents and their lawyers discussed with a judge the status of Spears’s conservatorship. The court-supervised arrangement gives her father control over her $47 million estate and personal affairs; it has been in place since Spears suffered a very public breakdown in 2008.
