This guardianship, decided in 2008 and which ended by a court decision in Los Angeles on November 12, was mainly under the authority of Jamie Spears, father of Britney Spears.
Aged 40 today, the star had already spoken briefly since the lifting of this guardianship, which she described as “abusive”, and which notably prevented her from removing her contraceptive IUD despite her desire to to have other children.

“And I had accepted it”, concludes Britney Spears.
