Britney Spears news – Megyn Kelly says conservatorship is 'there for reason' as star dances in red bikini after hearing

MEGYN Kelly spoke OUT about Britney Spears on her podcast claiming her conservatorship was "there for a reason" while the pop star dances in a red bikini following her court appearance.

The former Fox News host discussed Britney on her Monday episode of her podcast The Megyn Kelly Show, questioning the star's "mental state."

"There has to be a good reason for it. What we don't know we don't know what kind of mental state Britney is actually in. We don't know whether she's attempted suicide over and over whether she tried to hurt others. I'm just making this up just to be clear. We just don't know they're there," she said.

She continued, "The thing that bothered me about her testimonial was, we didn't hear the other side," referring to Britney's father, Jamie, who only spoke out about the hearing through his attorney.

During Wednesday's court session, the singer made a number of shocking claims during her virtual appearance, including that her family sent her to a $60K rehab at a small Los Angeles home and she was forced to keep in her IUD despite wanting more children.

    BRITNEY ALLOWED THE CONSERVATORSHIP ORIGINALLY TO KEEP CUSTODY OF HER SONS

    A source exclusively told The Sun that the singer, 39, allowed Jamie to become her conservator as she thought it would help her gain access to her two sons with ex Kevin Federline.

    Back in 2007, we can reveal that Britney said of Jamie, "I don't ever want to speak to him again."

    Her partying at the time was "a desperate reaction to live her life after feeling shackled by Jamie's demands and constant focus on her career".

    Britney first pushed back on Jamie's sobbing phone calls asking for reconciliation, before refusing to speak to him. 

    It was her mom Lynne and then boyfriend Adnan Ghalib who reconciled the pair, before him "taking over her life a year later."

    She made up with Jamie as she hoped it could help her custody battle with Kevin.

    BRITNEY COMPARES CONSERVATORSHIP TO SEX TRAFFICKING

    She also compared the "abusive" conservatorship to sex trafficking, stating: “In California, the only similar thing to this is called sex trafficking, making anyone work against their will.

    "And taking all their possessions away, credit card, cash, phone, passport."

    BRITNEY'S EX SLAMS CONSERVATORSHIP

    The pop star's ex – who has refused to be named – also revealed she begged dad Jamie "four or five times a week" to end her conservatorship before bringing the matter to court.

    Speaking to Page Six, her ex revealed: "What she wants more than anything is to have a baby girl.

    "That’s all she’s ever wanted, really. They kept her from that. They told her she had to do the Vegas show instead."

    The man also told of how angry he was when he heard Britney’s lawyer, Samuel D. Ingham III, tell the court that the singer had never asked to end the conservatorship.

    He said: "She asked him four or five times a week to end the conservatorship and they would always give her some sort of BS.

    "Ingham used the word ‘formally.’ What does that even mean when someone calls you four times a week (asking), ‘How do I end this?'

    "I hope she sues the s**t out of them for this. I will testify if it comes to that."

    WHAT HAS BRITNEY SAID ABOUT JODI?

    Britney has taken steps towards making Montgomery her permanent conservator.

    In a petition from March, Britney's legal team requested that Montgomery serve as the pop star's permanent conservator.

    A source close to Britney told the Daily Mail: "If Jodi becomes her conservator things would drastically change for Britney.

    "She's not working because of her dad. She has said that as long as a dad is control of her life, she's not working.

    "Britney trusts Jodi Montgomery – she's really great. Things would drastically change for the better."

    WILL JODI TAKE OVER BRITNEY'S CONSERVATORSHIP?

    It is unknown whether the judge overseeing the case will allow Montgomery to be Britney's permanent conservator.

    The next court hearing in Britney's conservatorship case is scheduled for July 14.

    Following the hearing on June 23, Jamie said he "loves his daughter" after she threatened to sue her "abusive" family over her conservatorship.

    During the hearing, Britney detailed her “abusive” conservatorship and argued her father should no longer have control over her life.

    Following the hearing, Jamie’s legal team released a statement that insisted he cares very much about his daughter.

    The statement read:  “He is sorry to see his daughter suffering and in so much pain. Mr. Spears loves his daughter very much.”

    WHO IS JODI MONTGOMERY?

    Jodi Montgomery is an experienced conservator with a degree in social welfare.

    She runs her own practice with her husband Jack where they specialize in conservatorships.

    The couple's company website states that they "offer expertise in managing businesses, working with limited partnerships, resolving contentious family issues, maximizing and protecting the value of intellectual property rights, managing real property assets, and developing and executing plans to optimize trust finances.”

    US Weekly reported in 2019 that a judge placed Montgomery as Britney Spears' temporary conservator after taking on the role of Spears' "care manager".

    In September 2019, a judge gave Montgomery the powers Britney's father Jamie would have until January 2020.

    While Jamie is co-managing his daughter's estimated $60million estate with the Bessemer Trust Company, Jodi has remained in charge of Britney's person.

    JAMIE LYNN DEFENDS HERSELF

    Jamie Lynn decided to break her silence and speak out on the matter in a series of Instagram Story videos on Monday.

    The Sweet Magnolias actress told fans that she didn't think it was her "place" to say anything until Britney had had her chance to speak.

    She shared in the video: “But now that she’s very clearly spoken and said what she needed to say, I feel like I can follow her lead and say what I need to say.”

    ”I think it's extremely clear that since the day I was born I've only loved and adored and supported my sister," Jamie Lynn said.

    “I mean, this is my freakin' big sister before any of this bulls***. 

    “I don't care if she wants to run away to the rainforest and have a zillion babies in the middle of nowhere, or if she wants to come back and dominate the world the way she has so many times before.”

    She went on to explain that when it comes to the conservatorship, she has “nothing to gain or lose either way” and that she’s “only concerned about [Britney’s] happiness."

    Others seemed to agree, as Britney’s fans flooded the comments section to slam Jamie Lynn.

    One person wrote: “I never understood how she could sit back and watch this be done to her sister! Even if Britney had any mental instability how did she not advocate for better treatment of her sister! What Britney described can make anyone lose their mind. This is the saddest thing ever!”

    Another added: “Her whole family needs to repent and make it right by Britney. They’re all wrong.”
