Britney Spears gave the court an ultimatum: Either remove her father as conservator or she will never again perform.
Their relationship has grown toxic. The court heard how Jamie Spears once compared Britney to an animal that needed pampering – but while caged.
Britney’s attorney told the judge that the family is at a crossroads. (quote) “She is afraid of her father. She will not perform as long as her father is in charge of her career.”
The day did not end with a judge’s decision concerning Jamie Spears. Instead, she it kicked further down the road. In a matter of weeks, Britney will enter year 13 of this restrictive conservatorship. (Us Weekly)

Shawn Mendes tells Seventeen Magazine that he lives a clean lifestyle. “Drugs and stuff scare me. I’m not just saying that. I have a thing where if I’m not in control, I feel the whole world is about to collapse. So it’s just not worth it.”
