Lynne Spears wants to make sure she is kept informed of matters related to her daughter Britney Spears’ well-being, and has reportedly filed court documents asking to move a scheduled Friday court date to Wednesday.
According to The Blast, Lynne filed a request on Monday asking to receive special notice and information regarding all matters concerning Britney and her conservatorship.
Until now, Lynne has not played any role in the conservatorship over her daughter, leaving those matters to Britney’s father Jamie Spears.
On Tuesday, TMZ reported that Lynne is so concerned with her daughter’s condition that she’s requesting the court hearing involving conservatorship be moved two days earlier, to Wednesday.
“Lynne’s lawyer says it is in Britney’s best interest for her to help manage the situation,” writes TMZ.
According to a TMZ source, “Britney is making bad decisions and it’s a problem.”
Meanwhile, Jamie believes Lynne is too permissive with Britney, while he feels she needs structure and discipline, with their opposing opinions at the centre of the conservatorship battle.
Britney is reportedly back at home continuing her mental health treatment after entering a treatment facility earlier this year.
There has been a recent outpouring of support and concern for the singer, with Miley Cyrus even shouting out ‘free Britney’ at an event in Memphis on Saturday.
At the Beale Street Music Festival, Cyrus performed some of her own songs, including “Party In The U.S.A.” As she reached the lyric “and a Britney song was on,” she added in “Free Britney” in reference to the #FreeBritney campaign on Twitter where fans are calling for the end of her lifetime conservatorship, also known as guardianship, designed for people who can’t take care of themselves.
The conservatorship came after her 2008 meltdown, when her father and lawyer Andrew M. Waller stepped in.
