Britney Spears’ conservatorship will get a status hearing next month.
According to court documents obtained by ET on Wednesday, a judge set the hearing for May 10. Spears will not need to be present.
It is not noted why a new status hearing was set by the judge. Britney’s father, Jamie Spears, has been her conservator since 2008, and he became her sole conservator this year after his former co-conservator, attorney Andrew Wallet, resigned in March.
Earlier this month, a source told ET that Spears checked herself into a health facility to deal with the tremendous stress she’s been having over her father suffering a life-threatening health issue. Late last year, Jamie was rushed to the hospital when his colon ruptured and spent 28 days in the hospital. At the time, the Spears family credited the doctors and nurses for saving his life, and in January, Spears put her career on an indefinite hiatus — postponing her album and putting her Britney: Domination show at Park Theater at the Park MGM resort in Las Vegas on hold — in order to support her father.
Meanwhile, Spears has been spotted out multiple times while still in treatment, such as on Easter Sunday at the Montage hotel in Beverly Hills, California, where she was with her longtime boyfriend, Sam Asghari. A source tells ET that Spears remains in treatment but is allowed “outings,” as she works on her “mind, body and soul.”
Another source tells ET that Spears now wants to leave the health facility.
“Britney knows she needs help but has made it clear she wants to go home,” the source says. “She feels far better than she did when she arrived and hates feeling under a microscope.”
“While she is finally on the right path to getting healthy again, Britney does miss her autonomy,” the source adds. “She is under constant care both in and out of the facility. At this point, she is doing everything she can to return home and hopes to be released soon.”
On Tuesday, Spears assured fans on Instagram that she’s fine after allegations were made on the “Britney’s Gram” podcast that she was being held against her will, and some fans held a protest outside West Hollywood City Hall on Monday with signs reading “Free Britney.” The fans demanded that the singer be released from a health facility where they claimed she is being held against her will.
“Hi guys, just checking in with all of you who have been concerned about me,” Spears said in the video. “All is well. My family has been going through a lot of stress and anxiety lately so I just needed time to deal. But don’t worry I will be back very soon.”

I wanted to say hi, because things that are being said have just gotten out of control!!! Wow!!! There’s rumors, death threats to my family and my team, and just so many things crazy things being said. I am trying to take a moment for myself, but everything that’s happening is just making it harder for me. Don’t believe everything you read and hear. These fake emails everywhere were crafted by Sam Lutfi years ago… I did not write them. He was pretending to be me and communicating with my team with a fake email address. My situation is unique, but I promise I’m doing what’s best at this moment 🌸🌸🌸 You may not know this about me, but I am strong, and stand up for what I want! Your love and dedication is amazing, but what I need right now is a little bit of privacy to deal with all the hard things that life is throwing my way. If you could do that, I would be forever grateful. Love you ❤️❤️❤️
On Wednesday, she shared a video of herself working out and even showed off dance moves to Cardi B, Bad Bunny and J Balvin’s “I Like It.”
“Who knew stress would be a great 5-pound weight loss. Yay for me,” she wrote, adding winking emojis.
