Like the other protagonists in this case the star does not have to be physical and speaks through an internet link during the intervention that takes place behind closed doors.
Samuel Ingham, a court-appointed lawyer for Britney Spears, said in a previous hearing that “Britney wants to go straight to court.”

Similar to the custodial rule, the deal is that the decisions regarding the singer will be made especially by her father Jamie Spears, with whom she has had a difficult relationship for a long time.
These arrangements have been fiercely contested in recent years, with Britney Spears’ attorney now asking the court to appoint a professional guardian to replace Jamie Spears, who is currently handling her case with her father.

Interest in Britney Spears’ legal and psychological saga has been revived with the recent release of the documentary “Framing Britney Spears”, which explores the star’s declining mental health and his sometimes brutal media treatment.
