Britney Spears is looking great lately, and not just on her digitally altered album cover, but in her videos and new documentary. Her comeback is even featured on the upcoming issue of Rolling Stone, with her top pulled up as if her mental health correlates with how flat her stomach is. Apparently she thinks she’s getting along just fine, but her last hospital admission was February. That’s really not that long ago. TMZ reports that Britney wants her adulthood back, in the form of being released from her dad’s control.
We’re told Britney has been fighting with her dad quite often and one of the sore subjects is the dreaded Adnan. Britney wants to see him, but Jamie absolutely refuses. She is still in touch with her douchy ex, but they haven’t spent time together — even though Brit has been asking to see Adnan for months.
She’s also been complaining that daddy won’t let her go out, especially when she wants to go clubbing at night. Britney also doesn’t understand why Jamie won’t let her take the kids out during the day.
Bottom line — she doesn’t like her dad as her conservator, but as someone put it, “she likes others even less.” On Friday, we’re told Britney was complaining about Jamie in court to the Commish — to the point where she called Brit into chambers with one of the lawyers and spoke with Britney for 45 minutes.
So here’s what we’re told. Britney is acting like a 15-year-old and isn’t very “contrite” about the behavior that led to the conservatorship in the first place.
The good news — she seems to appreciate what Jamie has done to get her business affairs in order. She clearly doesn’t understand he’s doing the same for her personal life.
I can sort of understand that Britney feels she has put so much work into getting her life back on track, and still no one trusts her. But it has only been a few months since her breakdown, and she really was a mess. Getting out a new album and touring might be too much for her if she has a mental illness, so she needs to be taken care of by people who love her, rather than those who might be just interested in making money from her. After all, Britney probably never needs to work another day in her life financially, so she could take a career break, there’s no need for her to get back on that treadmill.
While Jamie might have gotten her business affairs in order, keeping her private life private and maintaining her image is part of that. Not being photographed coming out of clubs is a good image for a young mother (even though there may be no reason for her to stay home on her nights without the children) and not being seen with Adnan helps people put her past behind her.
