Britney Spears is scheduled to discuss the status of her conservatorship in court later this year, Variety reports.

According to the magazine, the hearing was scheduled by Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Brenda Penny in court this week. The hearing where Spears is set to speak will reportedly take place on June 23. 

Spears has sought to have her father removed as conservator in recent months. The star was placed under a conservatorship in 2008 after she suffered a public mental health crisis.


The magazine reports that Samuel Ingham, Spears's attorney, has ordered Bessemer Trust to serve as a co-conservator, after the singer previously sought to have the company replace her father as the sole conservator of her estate.

However, it’s unclear when the appointment will be finalized.

In a letter shared with The Hill last month, the congressmen wrote that they felt conservatorships were unconstitutional, arguing that they limit a person’s "legal autonomy" and control over their finances.

“Ms. Spears is not alone,” the representatives wrote at the time. “There are countless other Americans unjustly stripped of their freedoms by others with little recourse.”
