Britney Spears’ Conservatorship Could Violate Her Civil Rights, According To the ACLU

Britney Spears‘ conservatorship may be in violation of her civil rights, according to an attorney with the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU). As we all know, Britney Spears is controlled by her father and many others that surround her.

Following Spears’ request to have her father Jamie Spears removed as conservator, ACLU attorney Zoe Brennan-Krohn shared that the strict conservatorship Spears is under may not support her wellbeing or be in her best interest. 

‘Conservatorships should be viewed with skepticism and used as a last resort,’ according to the ACLU 

Brennan-Krohn said Spears’ conservatorship should be examined and questioned. 

“So while it’s possible that this is an example of a thoughtful conservatorship that was implemented as the last resort and is being reviewed carefully, thoroughly, and regularly, that is not the norm for conservatorships,” she remarked in an ACLU report

“And it appears inconsistent with what we see of Britney publicly,” she added. “Our view is that in general, conservatorships should be viewed with skepticism and used as a last resort.  In most cases, it’s done routinely and without substantive engagement.”


Britney Spears could have options beyond conservatorship 

Brennan-Krohn added that a slew of alternatives exists beyond a conservatorship. 

“We don’t know all of the risks and benefits at play, so we can’t speak to the specifics of her case,” she commented. “But we do know that the conservatorship itself also has risks. The risks in conservatorship can include financial, physical, and emotional abuse.”
