Britney Spears asks to address court at hearing on her conservatorship The pop star, who has been under a legal conservatorship for more than 12 years, has rarely issued public statements about her father's legal guardianship.

Britney Spears was granted a request Tuesday to directly address the court managing her conservatorship at a status hearing in June.

Spears' attorney, Samuel D. Ingham III, asked for the hearing when the court convened Tuesday to address matters about accounting and fees, which were pushed back to July for more information. It's unclear what issues Spears will raise or whether she will ask to end her conservatorship.

"The conservatee, she has requested that I seek from the court a status hearing at which she can address the court directly," Ingham said in a videoconference. "This does not relate to any of the matters on the calendar now, and it does not relate to the accounting or the fee issues."

Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Brenda Penny scheduled a status hearing for June 23.

Ingham declined a request for comment.
