Scenario Development of a Hypothetical Character
The celebrity that I have chosen is Britney Spears. Britney Spears has been battling a case with her father against conservatorship- which means that she does not have total control over her finances and decisions that are needed to be made within her life. Some may ask well why does need a conservator? According to USA Today it says, “ that Britney Spears suffered a mental breakdown in 2007, alarmingly played out before the paparazzi who captured her behaving erratically, at one point attacking a car with an umbrella and at another shaving her head. In addition to that, her father and lawyer named, Andrew Wallet was appointed to be co-conservator in 2008 (Puente,M. 2019).”This behavior with Britney Spears started when there was divorce between her ex-husband, Kevin Federline and lost custody of her two children. In 2008 Britney was admitted to the hospital and was recommended to have a psychiatric assessment taken. Which was why her father gaining the conservatorship over her life. Britney Spears has been under the conservatorship for at least a decade now and still contributing to the music industry and also serving as a judge on X-Factor. During the time that she has been under the conservatorship she has accumulated a net worth of $59m, but has contributed $1.1 m within the legal system and the fees for the conservator. Currently, Britney Spears has been tussling over the conservatorship because she now wants to end it and have control over her life now because she feels that her father has been abusing the rights with being a conservator. Also she feel like she is capable enough to handle her life decisions and start her family life back over again. Furthermore, with the testimonies and allegations that Britney has made, her father filed a petition asking the court to consider if they really think the conservatorship should be ended. With the several cases and court hearings that has been made within the timeframe that the petition was filed by her father they have granted the access in September 2019 to let her father step aside as the sole conservator and will still have control over finances while they find a professional conservator that will serve as overseeing her “security, visitors, and medical and psychiatric treatment (Puente, M 2019).”
