That’s American as hell. $10k a week.
That's incredibly fucked up.
i wonder why he didn’t file papers to end it. It’s a quandary.
Some Brit I was listening to call into a soccer show earlier was bragging about becoming an American citizen next week.
“This country is great, as long as you have money for attorneys fees, all your problems are solved”.
Fairly ironic given the basis of our legal system....
he isn’t wrong
As Ty Webb referenced our legal system is based on the Brits so now is certainly no time for self reflection of how we treat people.
Lol $6.7 million
Society has changed so much in that time, it’s the people that refuse to adapt I hate
Nobody gave a shit about mental health 15-20 years ago
Has it? I feel like I see similar magazine covers at the grocery store checkout now.
Honestly as recently as maybe 5 years at the most. It’s still somewhat stigmatized.
I genuinely feel sorry for this girl. She's been taken advantage her entire adult life and apparently not a single adult she's ever encountered has stopped to ask her what she thinks would be best for her.
I'm honestly surprised we haven't woken up to the headline that she's hung herself. She must be made of stone to fight this kind of mental state.
I've mentioned this before - my ex-wife is her 2nd cousin so she actually knows the family. The matriarch of Britney's family committed suicide when Britney's dad was young, there were endless terrible stories about how she grew up.
I hope she comes back from everything she's going through - but to say she had some depressing influences around her when she was growing up is an understatement.
Nobody gives a shit about mental health now. The only thing that’s changed is maybe the recognition of the issue, but not in terms of getting anything done to help address it.
Agreed - it's posturing and has become a faux pas to make fun of people for it now but that's the only significant change I've seen. Hopefully I'm wrong.
I think people treat it a little more seriously at least but it's definitely not a massive change.
This is the audio of her testimony. It's fucking horrible.
We should probably change the thread title.
Would she no longer get it?
Britney Spears has apparently been getting it for years.
I just can’t wrap my head around how they’ve let this go on for so long.
Sounds like the dude that “represents” her was making $10k a week by keeping the status quo
Judicial system DGAF and no incentive for the attorney to fight for her when he's making bank off it
The dude needs disbarred and hopefully bankrupted by a civil suit.
Yea, I think it’s pretty obvious the dude appointed to represent her was culprit #1 for the duration of this whole charade. He’s banking $10k per week on that shit…what a sweet deal.
Hope he saved some of it because I have a feeling a civil suit and bar action are headed his way soon
well her dad is the worst problem, who do you think hired that grifter?
“Hey attorney, you want $10k a week to shut the fuck up while I milk my Hollywood kid dry?”
she’ll be lucky if she has anything left after all this
It's literally the damn southpark episode - they ran her into the ground and took advantage at every turn.
thought he was court appointed?
Her dad is on the Mt. Rushmore of shitty parents.
And there's no way Cher's hair color is still that dark naturally.
Not that I haven't seen that magazine cover in Publix this week or anything
Listening to the audio is awful. Holy shit I feel awful for her. Glad she's finally just letting it all out and putting them all on blast. Fuck em.
Yeah it's a real conundrum. Shocked he didn't ask for annual increases to account for inflation. Some lawyer he is.
Some rookie changed the title without updating the thread icon
This whole story is nuts
healthy/mentally able to perform in Vegas and around the world
but not healthy/mentally able to spend the money she makes.
You can go on a world tour to make millions of dollars but you can't go on a car ride with your boyfriend.
Fuck everyone involved.
Did i hear that right? They forced her to take lithium... by lying about how she was acting out? Because she didn't want to do a show? She's not allowed to be taken off birth control? I'm not going to weigh in on how "well" she is but uhhh, that's gotta be some of the shittiest shit I've heard. Jesus fuck.
What's the timeline on all of this? This all stems from when she was hospitalized in 2008?
Yeah it's insane that her dad fucked her over and ruined her life for years. It's some pretty unforgivable shit that he's stolen years off her life like this.
And since then she has made over 150 million dollars but I’m sure her family is just looking out for her
she once had a networth of $300 million and now its down to 60ish
Link? Curious how that happened when she can't spend money and only makes it.
the forced IUD is easily the worst thing for me. I think there are rare circumstances where it's appropriate for an adult to have a guardian intercede on their behalf when it comes to matters of the body but this is absolutely not one of them and she's frankly not even in the same solar system for such a circumstance.
The whole thing is outrageous. You’re perfectly within your rights to be unreliable and bad with money. Well now legally you don’t get make decisions anymore. The fuck?
Jamie been sending Britney's money to LSU to pay for their new women's basketball coach
