According to NBC News, Britney testified that she has been subjected to numerous psych evaluations, medications and that she has been traumatized by her father Jamie Spears through his control. The singer also expressed her desire to get married and expand her family, but said she cannot do so because her conservator has not allowed her to.
Additionally, Britney told the court that she didn’t speak up publicly in the past because she feared no one would believe her. “After I’ve lied and told the whole world I’m OK and I’m happy…I’m not OK, ” she shared. “I’m not happy, I can’t sleep.”
After Britney spoke, an attorney shared a statement on behalf of her father, Jamie. “Mr. Spears is sorry to see his daughter suffering and in so much pain,” the statement read. “Mr. Spears loves his daughter and misses her very much.”
