At the end of last year Britney’s dad underwent 2 huge surgeries after his colon spontaneously ruptured allegedly causing Britney’s life to go into a tailspin.
There have been numerous conflicting stories about the singer’s situation at the facility. Recently, an unnamed person claiming to be a former member of Spears’ legal team alleged the mother-of-two is being held at the facility against her will.
This alarming voicemail was aired during an episode of Britney’s Gram podcast where hosts Barbara Grey and Tess Barker alluded that Spears’ conservatorship, money and health could be the reasons she was checked in without her approval.
The anonymous former employee went on to claim Britney stopped taking her medications, forcing her father to pull the plug on her Domination Las Vegas residency and check her into the facility against her will.
By the looks of these photos, Britney isn’t being held against her will. On the contrary, she appears to be able to come and go as she pleases. Even opting for a low-key holiday with her man at the luxury hotel before returning to the facility.
As Spears exited the building she was seen wearing an off-the-shoulder red summer dress, a pair of Birkenstocks and her phone iPhone in hand.
Britney has been under a conservatorship since 2008 for issues tied to her mental health. Under the conservatorship she is legally required to surrender financial and lifestyle rights. Her father Jamie Spears has been manning the the ship for the last 11 years with no end in site.
Spears isn’t the only celebrity in this situation, Amanda Bynes is also under a conservatorship until 2020 according to E! News.
