The 39-year-old pop star spoke up in court on Wednesday (23.06.21) to brand the conservatorship that has given her father, Jamie Spears, control of her affairs since 2008 "abusive" and accused her other relatives of doing "nothing" to help her but Jamie Watson - who is married to Jamie Lynn Spears - has now spoken up to defend his wife and the rest of the clan.

He told the New York Post newspaper: “I can assure you her family loves her and wants the best for her.

“I wouldn’t be around people who weren’t. Who wouldn’t want to be in support of Britney?”

During the hearing, Britney claimed she'd been prevented from having children with boyfriend Sam Asghari as she wasn't allowed to have an IUD contraceptive device removed and alleged her team had her medication changed when she decided to take a break from her Las Vegas residency.

She said: “Lithium is a very, very strong and completely different medication compared to what I was used to.

“You can go mentally impaired if you take too much if you stay on it longer than five months. But [my dad] put me on that and I felt drunk. I couldn’t even have a conversation with my mom or dad really about anything.

“Not only did my family not do a goddamn thing, my dad was all for it.

"Anything that happened to me had to be approved by my dad. And my dad acted like he didn’t know that I was told I had to be tested over the Christmas holidays before they sent me away, when my kids went to home to Louisiana. He was the one who approved all of it. My whole family did nothing.”

The 'Stronger' singer - who pays her father around $16,000 per month, plus $2,000 a month to rent office space, in his role as co-conservator, as well as a percentage of profits from her deals - accused her relatives of keeping her under the conservatorship to make money.

She said: "Considering my family has lived off my conservatorship for 13 years, I won’t be surprised if one of them has something to say going forward, and say, ‘We don’t think this should end, we have to help her.’ Especially if I get my fair turn exposing what they did to me."

However, a lawyer acting on behalf of her mom Lynne - who split from Jamie in 2002 - told the court his client was a "very concerned" mother and encouraged the judge to listen to the 'Womanizer' singer's request to hire her own private attorney and change her care plan.
