Britney Spears has, for the first time in 13 years, addressed a court as she continues to battle 68-year-old father Jamie Spears in her conservatorship case. The 39-year-old pop princess today spoke to Superior Court Judge Brenda Penny via video chat, breaking her silence on her suffering and even admitting to being "depressed." Notable was also the "Toxic" singer saying her team has pressed against her having more children, with the appearance seeing Spears say she both wants to get "married" and have a baby. See the details below.

Wants Marriage And 'A Baby'

Scroll for photos. Britney had been shouted out by 27-year-old boyfriend Sam Asghari ahead of her court appearance. The personal trainer updated his Instagram this week in a #FreeBritney shirt.

“I am not happy, I can’t sleep. I’m so angry, it’s insane. And I’m depressed,” she said.

“The last time I spoke to you [the judge] … made me feel like I was dead. I am telling you again because I am not lying … so maybe you can understand the depth and the degree and the damages … I deserve changes.”

The Grammy winner, who is twice divorced and a mom to sons Jayden and Sean, continued: 

“I want to be able to get married and have a baby. I have an IUD inside of myself so that I don’t get pregnant, but [my team doesn’t] want me to have any more children.”

Fans allege that Britney's team is controlling her entirely, even her Instagram. The blonde didn't name Asghari, however with the 2016-commenced couple going strong, it can be assumed she meant the Iranian. 

'I Want My Life Back'

Spears, who recently addressed her 30.2 million Instagram followers and admitted she doesn't "know" if she'll ever "take the stage again," told the court she wants her "life back."

"I want to end this conservatorship without being evaluated," she continued, also calling the grip on her "abusive."

"This conservatorship is doing me way more harm than good. I deserve to have a life, I've worked my whole life. I deserve to have a two to three-year break."

Reveals Being 'Traumatized'

Britney added that her father controlled her "100,000% and he loved it".

"I am traumatized," she added, confirming that she does, indeed, feel harmed. Spears has, for years, ushered in concern over her well-being - while she said she was the "happiest" she's ever been in November 2020, the status quo is clearly a polar opposite. 

Britney suffers from bipolar disorder, with the late 2000s seeing her mental breakdowns publicized, largely negatively. The much-loved star is, however, regarded by fans to be far more stable these days.
