Taliban Announces Formation of New Afghan Government
"The taliban announced a new government in afghanistan. that's not likely to get a lot of support from western nations. It does not include any women or members from the last afghan government's leadership instead. This new interim government is stacked with taliban veterans who were in charge of the hardline government. Twenty years ago. Several of them are listed by the us and united nations as global terrorists. For example. the key post of interior minister was given to a man. Who's on the fbi's most wanted list. He led a network. That's blamed for many deadly attacks and kidnappings and he's believed is still holding at least one american hostage besides him. Other cabinet members used to be inmates at guantanamo detention camp and at least one of the leaders is said to have ties to the al qaeda terror group that was responsible for the attacks on nine eleven. The taliban says these appointments are temporary but they have not said how long the last who is going to take over next or if there might be elections for now. The taliban is also urging foreign diplomats embassies consulates and humanitarian organisations to come back to afghanistan all western nations left when. Us troops withdrew last month. The us and other countries also froze afghanistan's funding. That's desperately needed as much as eighty percent of the country's budget comes from the international community but global leaders in lenders say they're waiting to see how the taliban will treat the opposition women and minorities before they send money

"It's good. Co sponsors rep. Charlie crist democrat. Florida and nancy mace republican from south carolina legislation that If they pass it would create Pathway for britney spears in other people to replace their private guardian or conservator so it basically It argues for more accountability. It argues that That we need more data on the stuff. Like you're saying how like no one knows how much money is tied up in this. No one knows how many people are trying to get out of these. Yeah there's just like it's it's shockingly i don't want to say willy nilly because that's probably not fair but under studied served yeah under observed for sure so as of now in order to get out of a conservative ship you have to prove fraud or abuse that is has occurred to have that be replaced and this bill would kind of roll that back and say it doesn't necessarily have to be abuse or fraud. It could just be that. They don't aren't comfortable with it. Their emotional wellbeing is not being a matter. Whatever and just to make it a little bit easier to free someone up from these conservatives ships and so we'll see that was There was one a few years ago in twenty nineteen. That didn't get beyond the house judiciary committee but everyone's kind of thinking with all this attention right now because britney spears case that they might have a little momentum to get something like that done. Oh yeah big time. There's the free act by the way. shady acronym has no freedom and right to emancipate from exploitation act. Okay all right. I can respect like bending over backwards a little bit to make that work. That was all right. Okay i think chuck also one of the reasons why they They have aired to this point on the side of making it more difficult to remove. A conservator is because they've kind of There's like a this. Maybe a suspicion that you could have a fight or a falling out or something like that over something totally unrelated to the leadership and you know the person can be now. The person could be like this. You're not my conservatory. Mar on you out of my life or whatever and the person might be great as their conservator and it might be a really good conservatives ship but it just you know there was that that moment or that falling out so in that sense it should be made difficult but then on the other hand it's like is that really the way we should be airing. Should we be airing toward away from the the rights in the desires of the person whose whose life and responsibilities for their life has been taken away from them. Like shouldn't that shouldn't they. At least have the right to choose. Who's calling the shots for them. Who's making those decisions for them. And i think ultimately i kind of lean toward the the rights of the individual. Yeah meet it also makes you wonder about you. Know if they're let's say there's no kids involved in it's a case of Someone of using drugs or something like is an interesting slippery slope to think about whether an adult has a right to throw their life away. Yes and make bad decisions or whether or not it should be legal for someone to be able to step in and save somebody. It's like that's just really feel about. It's just an interesting thought experiment. I came across something called the the right to risk. Where basically it's exactly what you just said like everybody has the right to just blow it completely including a fortune including fame including You know alienating loved ones doing whatever you want to ruin your own life that you have that that right but i think the law recognizes that there are some some mental states That a person can can enter to where they wouldn't otherwise want to do the right. And i think that's what the people under who are running brittany's conservative ship are saying that like britney isn't capable of keeping people who would unduly influence her twos to throw her life away at bay she can't keep those people at bay. She doesn't understand documents as she signing. And then there's whispers or a like hushed rumors of like no the real reason she'll probably being a a a permanent conservative ship is because there's some diagnosed mental illness that is just sealed because it's a medical record right And that that's kind of like what gets leaked out on the conservative side so It i don't know i i think. Having like a an attorney that is of her choosing who sharp that is working for her and her alone getting into this really finding out. What's what in going into court. I think that that would be a that's a. I think that'll be a really. I'm interested to see what the outcome of that is. I don't see how that couldn't be a good step at least have more investigation done by someone of her choosing. Yeah because for years. Apparently her big problem was not with being under conservative ship. It was her dad being the conservative right and so he was co conservatives with a couple of people and she apparently even was fine with one of them for a little while but then They resigned because she said she wasn't fine with them any longer. And then now. It's just back to her dad being in total sole control so i wonder if like if her dad is forced out and it's just strictly like lawyers fiduciaries who are in charge of her conservative ship. If she would be like no this fine. I'm fine with this. I wonder yeah It's going to be interesting to see what happens with that in this legislation as they kind of go hand in hand absolutely anything else i got nothing else. Do you want wanna shout out. My pow babs gray Barbara gray and test barker or two comedians in la and they were in that documentary and have champion brittany's case for a while and they have a new podcast out and it's called they.

"For her benefit. You know yeah and if you're the conservatory you also you know you're going to at some point. Probably have to answer to the court especially in some cases like this so you gotta have all your ducks in a row. You've gotta keep receipts and you've got to have a paper trail to kind of backup everything. You can't just waltz in there and say like trust me. Everything's going fine. Supposedly you're going to have to have pretty robust records for kind of every financial decision. You're making on behalf of your conservative. So that's ideally Now we reached the the reality. And that's this is one good thing of brittany spears conservative in all the the light she shining on conservative ship abuse. Right now is like this is an issue. In normal like non celebrity society where people can get preyed upon by basically a professional conservator And there was a general accounting office report that basically said this states have no idea how many people how many of its citizens or residents are under conservative ship. Right now how much money is being held in conservative ship right now. They might have a good idea. In some cases in other cases they have no idea and as part of the report the. Gao basically made up four identities in a like four different states around the country and applied for conservatives ship and they were granted in all four cases are all four states conservative ship to to beat to go out and be a conservative to a stranger and take control of some strangers finances as part of like as their career and the states didn't check their background didn't run their social security. Numbers didn't do a credit check. Didn't do anything they just basically rubber-stamped like this person wants to be a conservative there you go your estate license conservative now. Who can go take control the finances of someone who's never even met you before and like in that respect. This is ripe for abuse. This is the kind of situation where a judge is morally obligated. Give as much attention to each case as needed to make sure hundred and ten percents. Sure that the person under conservative ship is not being exploited is not being taken advantage of financially is not being kept I think they call it. Isolated medicated in liquidated To in kept away from their family and their loved ones Can be a nightmare unless the court is overseeing this properly and apparently in all cases they don't which is just unconscionable and judges who dropped the ball on. That should be run out of town right in jail themselves. All right. let's take a break.

"So chuck There was one other type of conservative ship by duration that we didn't mention that is apparently pretty typical which is permanent. Oh yeah i mentioned that. I guess i thought it was self explanatory. Go on well. it's permanent a spirit but you can as we're seeing now file to have it removed or on. I don't even know that word. I coined earlier on reinstated. Anything i'm sorry on instated. Either so non instated see the whole point of coining new words. You gotta be able to use them at the drop of a hat. Yeah but i mean you gotta. It takes some practice. You know what i'm saying. So the reason permanent though is so typical in as far as conservative ships. Goes because most of the time when you end up in conservatives because you you suffered some sort of very debilitating problem or you had at your whole life like it's just it's it's it's a long term issue that you're dealing with so you're this is a long term solution a permanent conservative ship right and that really ties hand in hand with kind of the next part about how to get one It is usually almost always because of some sort of mental incapacity of some form. Whether that's temporary or like you said earlier for temporary like someone's in an accident and they're in a coma But they come out of the coma in two weeks and then you know work their way back to good health again and they wake up in their like ricky lake. We're engaged now. Wow really pulled that one out awesome thank you thank you thank you. Thank you You know we mentioned stuff like dimension. Alzheimer's that is very very common case for conservatives ships or if you have like you said from birth if you have some sort of permanent disability No matter how that came about. Then that's you know oftentimes like parents or some other family member just from the time. You're a kid had that conservative ship and basically there's like a two prong test to applying a conservative conservative ship. I'm gonna say correctly the first time one of these one of these times in this episode. i can't even say conservative. No great chuck So is the person unable to basically meet their own basic needs care for themselves feed themselves that kind of stuff In which case there would be a conservative of the person where you can make medical decisions for them for living arrangements like decide if they're gonna live in long term care facility something like that or and or Can they make decisions for themselves. Which are Sound financially. Like can they understand the contract that they're signing. Can they understand that if they you know by this house that they have to pay this amount of money or something like if they can't do either or both of those things then it conservative ship might be just the thing to kind of help them make it through life especially again if they have Substantial wealth or if they are just totally unable to care for themselves. Yeah and you know the the way this goes down. Ideally i think more typically than what we're seeing in brittany spears cases. Medical records are presented their the probate or family. Court is handling this The conservative tea is either Understands and goes along with it because they know it's for their own good or Isn't you know is clearly not capable. Which is why they need the conservator to to begin with of making these decisions in again. It's super rare for this kind of case where someone is having something done seemingly against their will kind of from the kick. Oh yeah. I mean like for the most for the most part. If you're a conservative ship like you might not even be conscious. You might have no idea that you're conservative. Ship sure You might not be able to work. Hold down a job or remembered it to feed yourself. You're certainly not going on world tour and releasing four albums to which go platinum and then maintaining a vegas residency in generating one hundred and thirty million dollars in income over. You know ten thirteen years something that it just makes. It's just so bizarre. It's so bizarre. And i i have to say also one other thing. I don't want to give the impression that. I'm just like a like a hash tag. Free person like i understand that those people have Just the best intentions and my hat is off to them. But i also think is very very wise to remember like we're seeing this from the outside. Most of the court documents involved are sealed. And so there's a lot of like tea leaf reading and trying to figure out what's really going on here and it's entirely possible that that this conservative ship has kind of helped britney like the people who defend who have been involved in defend it say you know. She had a couple million dollars left some of the worst people in the world surrounding her Her money was going faster brand restoring to go and now she's worth like sixty to eighty million dollars. She's back on top. She doesn't have a bunch of people hanging around her And then this coming people are like no. these people came in in wrestled control of britney's own life and now they're in charge of her and they're bilking for money. So it's it's really impossible to tell who to trust at this point in time so i think it's it's wise to at least keep something of an open mind even if it seems totally on the surface like this. This popstar is being held prisoner in public. You well when you need. Those tea leaves ready. You know you get allo- i don't get ronan farrow. He can be frank sinatra junior. That's right you no. He's junior junior right. Well supposingly with on supposedly woody allen son but audience. That's right. I mean i'm not the first person i mean. That's it's a it's a big thing online like. That's frank kid sure but You know supposedly not okay. We're hitting the celebrity. Beat all over the place Do you remember kids. Beat on nickelodeon kids be that popped into my head the other day out of nowhere and i was like did i. Just make that up. That was the thing though. Yeah i don't remember anything but that catchphrase. that sign here saying nothing else. maybe we a group hallucination. it's possible like the berinstain stained bears. What's it called. And all right so in her case in california in this article that we got a lot of this from highlights this It is different in every state with with a lot of legalities like this. It will differ depending on where you are but in california they have something called the judicial council california and book for conservatories where it does lay out about a dozen rights of someone like brittany spears which one of which is they can directly receive their salaries so supposedly she like. It's not like the check's getting did jamie spears. And he does it out. Supposedly.

"You're saying no no to which one to two the first or that she was she was in favor of. I'll tell you in second all right we'll get you want me to tell you now. We have to wait wait any longer. Okay billion chuck documentary. But i had other things to do i saw. The documentary was surprisingly home in totally one sided. I thought it was really kinda gross in a lot of ways but interesting for sure But also read a. I read a really good new yorker article. Recent one from july thirty thing called britney spears conservatives conservative ship nightmare by ronan farrow and gm tolentino to reporters and it is just moment by moment breakdown on wall britney's breakdown and then also like How she ended up in it and from this and other sources i saw that basically. She was not informed That she was being placed in a conservative ship beforehand. Which from what i can tell is a gross violation of her rights in that sense and that she didn't have a chance to petition the court to basically say no and then by the time she found out about it and tried to petition it. She was told that she was not in any kind of mental state to hire her own counsel and so she had counsel appointed to her says she never had an evaluation from so the judge in this case is now retired and she said that that is not true core. She was evaluated. And i talked to her and all that stuff but the the the way this is described as it was a ten minute thing and it was they went in and and as far like on the surface the the her parents went in and petitioned the judge in ten minutes later. The judge granted full. I guess temporary conservator ship without any any other formalities. That's how it that's how it is on. Its face and then the judge is denying that there was any back room Deals or anything made beforehand so it doesn't really make sense kind of stinks to high heaven in that respect. Yeah what did she think was going on then who brittany. Yeah when he was evaluated. That's the thing. I don't know that she was evaluated. She had just undergone to fifty one fifties where the the basically the state. Suzanne halen's to not just one to she had a fifty one fifty in an eight one two. Oh man she She no so the fifty one fifty s where somebody can basically say. This person is is Is mentally unstable right now. They may be a harm to themselves or others and the fire department comes and gets you in takes you off to a hospital for your kept against your will for twenty four forty eight. Seventy two hours happened to her twice and upon the second one her parents went and petitioned the court to to grant them conservative ship in the court. Did i don't know anything about a an evaluation that actually took place as part of the conservative ship. I get the impression that was like oh. She said to fifty one fifty. That's enough for me interesting by the way we can't say that without shouting out Listener aaron hagar. Oh yeah that's right rock on and we have to totally all right so there are some different types of conservative ships. One is financial and they often work hand in hand and sometimes kind of have to Financial obviously is when you are in charge of someone's finances. The conservative themselves have autonomy. But they don't have financial autonomy They can't you know. Go out and buy a house or rent a house or make any big purchases or maybe even any kind of purchases without the conservator sort of being there along the way saying it's fine. Yeah and i think they also have like they generally have spending money. They're giving an allowance right so they'll have that at least but yet for the big purchases no way Physical is when their health and basically medical decisions their health and their life. Kind of everything is controlled by the conservator. And i'm gonna mess it up at some point Whether or not they want to go to a therapist or whether or not they want to have certain medications supposedly they you know. You can't make someone take medication Bleakly but it again especially in her case it gets very murky with some of the charges levied against her father. As far as that stuff goes. Yeah yeah in particular. What i saw was that the the carrot and the stick that her father uses against her is Visitation rights her. To see your kids brutal. That was definitely one thing that came through a lot of stuff. I've been reading. Is that like. She is super dedicated to our kids and they've been just kept from her for you. Know they're basically their whole lives and that that was ultimately what really lead to a meltdown. You know the popper. It didn't help. And you know as being a star divorce. All of that stuff did not help But that it was you know kids that is really like the the dagger that's gets turned in her chest every time like she she had to leave or they had to leave Her father dangles that over her. Like if you don't do this if you don't sign this contract and do these performances you know i can't let the kids or whatever so right. That's apparently that's his. He gets cut he does. He gets one point. Five percent of all new deals to yeah and she's made a lot of money in the past you know years that she's been Blocked down to. I had a very successful vegas run. She had a couple of big album. She's been guest judges on a couple of the big competition shows. So she's not she's out there. Earning a lot of money. Still right for her pops. There's general conservative ships. And that is when it's it's kind of everything and these are more common. It's kind of rare. It seems like for there to be Only a physical conservative ship without being a financial Because those things are probably kind of go hand in hand so general is all encompassing and then you have your limited conservative ship where it's usually this is a case where it may be like Let's say an adult. That's a disabled. In some way that still wants to have in can have autonomy physical autonomy and maybe hold down a job and had their own apartment. But there's just certain parts of their life that a conservator will handle right so The everything i saw is that limited is what you're ultimately going for. When you're establishing a conservative ship you want to you want to minimize the number of restrictions necessary to help the person through their life while maximizing their individual liberties. Yes so when it goes down kitchen. Yeah and it's not supposed to be a one-size-fits-all like this person has all control over them. It's like how much do you need. How much how much do they need to give up. That's supposed to be the goal of a conservative hearing yeah and then you've got sometimes they're categorized by their length. You can have short term temporary or permanent with short-term usually. It's not more than a few months than ninety days. And it's because of some thing that happened it's an immediate need These can sometimes go down without that formal hearing that we were talking about Because it is short term in capped off at a certain point That is different in temporary though Temporary can turn into permanent. Whereas i don't think short term can. Yeah i think temporaries were there like okay. This person may get better at some point but we have no idea win but when they do get better they're gonna want to have their life back to. Let's just make this temporary short-term where i saw i saw that it's frequently used for when somebody's going into like drug rehab or something like that and they have like a lot of plates in the air or a lot of finances Although one of the things that i saw that finances are not supposed to be a reason.

"Hey and welcome to the podcast. I'm josh clark. There's charles w chuck bryant and there's guest producer. Who's actually a real producer to dave kustow. So guess producer in your mind means ghost producer. No i don't think he's dead. Are you dead. Dave will not a real producer. I don't know what's going on here. So he is the producer of short stuff which is technically a spin off of stuff. You should know. But he's here sitting in for jerry on stuff you should know which would make him a guest in this particular context. Okay but enough about that. I was just saying all that to welcome. Everybody now ruined forever. Sorry instead chuck. I think that we should talk about conservative ships. And before you say anything inhale. Yeah i understand. I think everybody who didn't realize episode. They're listening to just inhaled too I searched high and low for something to relate. This to in the real world could find like nothing so this is probably going to be fairly boring dry episode on legalities and the legal system with no no application to to realize and certainly no application to pop culture whatsoever. So buckle up everybody. I guess i'm trying to see if she did it again. I happen to be wearing a catholic school. Skar i now to yes. This obviously came to me because of the britney spears situation. I i don't know a lot about britney spears and didn't know a lot about her situation other than loosely hearing about it in the news but the more i poked around The more i was like man this really this really smacks of sort of the old days. You know like your honor. My wife or my daughter is crazy. we need to do something about this and I use that terminology. Because that's that's kind of how it used to go back in the day and sadly that kind of stuff still happens right through things like conservative ships and so it turns out that it's a pretty straightforward thing. But in her case the waters are pretty muddy. Yeah well she's a really rare case. The only other person. I can think of that even comes close to fitting the bill for this very rare type of conservative ship. That britney spears has is amanda bines. Who is another child star. Who kind of publicly melted down. I guess you could put in whose mother got her into conservative ship. Which i think she's still under today. in bristles under it publicly too so Most of the time when you're talking about conservatives which is basically one person legally having the ability to make decisions on behalf of somebody else You're talking about somebody who's gone into a coma somebody who has had Cognitive difficulties. Maybe for life Somebody just suffering from alzheimer's or something like that much much more more often than not. It's something that's part of elderlaw conservative ship it. So it's really it's rare weird. You can just say weird. It's very weird. That britney spears very healthy with it active Like i think she's like thirty. Somethings early thirties. Right now No late thirties. I think she's thirty nine. She that she would be in a conservative but she has she has been since she was twenty six and may maybe she's coming out of it. No one can say for sure that it's kind of looked like will of course they're going to let her out of it multiple times in the past But it seems like from what i understand. Now she might actually finally get out from under conservative ship at this point who knows. Yeah so Just a little quick background if you didn't know Not to get too in the weeds but in two thousand eight britney spears had What people have described online is kind of a public meltdown. Her her family was worried about her She was hospitalized for mental health issues. Twice twice a couple of times she famously shaved. Her head was very aggressive with the paparazzi. And you know. It's very easy for some people i guess in her family to say Hey she has some mental issues. She needs some help Let me step in and establish a conservative ship but it's also easy as an outsider to look back now and say. Hey she went through some stuff the paparazzi is awful and terrible. And what might you do in that situation. And maybe she just needed a little assistance to get through a particular time in her life and here we are in two thousand twenty one all these years later and she still has her father. Basically in charge of the decisions of her life financially in the with her health and And in certain cases or career and she's she's trying to get him out of there first and foremost as her conservator and also trying to get the conservative ship itself dissolved. Yeah because i think going to things that makes her case so gut wrenching. Is that basically her worst enemy. Her father was put in charge of her life against her will and she's lived like that for thirteen years. So i mean we'll like we'll talk about how her case applies you know Throughout the episode for sure but just to kind of like lay down the the the groundwork for what a conservative ship is They're apparently there's not one set legal definition like you could very easily just basically say it's where somebody's legally charges somebody else's decisions Some states call it guardianship other states colleague conservatives ship But the whole point of it is that somebody has been deemed unable to make good decisions for themselves to some sometimes physically take care of themselves or maybe even both and so the court Has been petitioned to kind of give someone else the ability to make those decisions to take care of that person and the the point of it if you really if you take away the whole britney spears thing in any kind of Scratchiness that can kind of pervade this whole kind of this this this legal weirdness it's kind of an act of love to step in and say this person is in really bad dire straits right now and I will help them while they're going through this or possibly for the rest of their lives are willing to take care of their needs and see to it that they're taking care of. That's what it's supposed to be about it at base chur and ideally. That's how it goes down There is not a lot of data about conservative ships. in how often they are petitioned to get An instated removed an stated. I like it too. It's great great word now. okay. I just made up a new word. Every you could win boggle with that chuck And we'll get to the you know why that is a little bit later but Win you petition. A court what happens is there is an evaluation that the court orders of this person who is known as a conservative and the person in charge as conservator and there's an attorney appointed to represent them and they hold a hearing and they decide whether or not this is something that they should move forward with. There's an evaluation done The person is allowed to speak on their behalf at this time. It's not the kind of thing where you can Just be railroaded. And i'm not exactly sure the details of brittany spears when when it first happened as far as if she was like. Yeah this is for the best right now. Or if she fought in the beginning i think she was.
Britney Spears' Longtime Manager Resigns
"Get right to britney spears. Her longtime manager. Larry rudolph is out. He says it's been over two and a half years even spoken with britney. Apparently this all had our best interests because he believes she will never perform again. We've learned all this t from a letter addressed brittany's father jody montgomery who are co conservatives. Now larry is with brady over two decades. Do you think this means britney is. I think it means something. I think. We can't ignore. This guy has stuck by her side through thick and thin through all helped build the thought. Break her so sent the fact that he has stepped away is a haze huge signal. One hundred percent agree. I mean this is not the this is not the first time that they've actually parted ways. And i do feel a lot of his decision. Making went into. There is such a storm around brittany right now. People are so concerned with her wellbeing. People are really on the freebritney train. I feel like in good conscious. He could not stand by her represent. Somebody who has vocalized publicly. I do not want to do this any
The People vs Britney Spears
"Zoe. Thank you so much for being here with us today. There is obviously so much to talk about. Yes great here. Yeah so we've covered brittany's testimony on our daily show rich and daily last week but we really wanted to talk to an expert about the case. Yeah we definitely need someone to break things down for us and our ritchie's okay. Happy to see what i can do. Yeah okay so we're going to just jump right in. So britney said a lot of shocking things in her testimony but for me. At least the biggest bombshell was that she was forced to have an iud inserted even though she wants to get married and have another kid and worse. It turns out that it's completely legal. Can you talk a little bit about how that's even possible. Yes sure When a person is under a conservative ship or guardianship the court has taken away that person's right to make their own decisions about their life and in many cases that includes decisions about reproductive freedom and so it appears that in this case as as in many conservatives ships and guardian ships the court has given the power to make decisions about brittany's reproductive choices to her conservators so there were definitely some other. Jaw droppers. one thing that was crazy to me is that britney said she felt like she was being sex trafficked because she had no control over her life in you know as we all know she'd been forced to work and had no input into how her money was spent she even talked about being forced to take lithium because she objected to something. Her managers requested. Now those seem like very extreme circumstances for someone to live under. What are some of the typical arrangements in conservative ships. Are these things normal. One of the things. That's really difficult about this. Area is that there's so little data and so little oversight so we don't really know what's normal and what's not but we have no idea what's happening because that's sort of built into conservative ships in one of the real problems with them. Is that the control over your life. Your body your choices. How you spend your money how you make your money is given to someone else. And there isn't much or any review of of how the conservatives making those choices or what choices the conservative is making for you and about you

So the meltdown happened and heard that decided that she was incapable of handling her own matters like her finances and made himself her conservator.

So i realize part of the problem that i'm not facing it because it will have if you watch it. It depressed me so much. The perez hilton documentary. Which i knew it would and it's like this is nothing compared to that is nothing compared to this housewife in the hustler. And i think iraq.

How do we know this is for real. How do we know. Someone isn't goofing on freebritney just floating out there. Whatever they message they want.

Are these two guys key kyle and mew mews and they have a podcast about britney and they've gone through the decades it was actually a very well done pod however no reference to freebritney at all and just even just show support of her One of them reached out to me and then deleted tweets making fun of me for back in the day. And i stand by truth. And i left my tweets up because i don't have anything died so i just think there are people like that other Other podcasters at influencers. That have just ridden. That britney train where are they. I mean i also think also someone that should be called out in a major way. She'll go to the opening of an envelope. She just got a key to a city advocate for almost anything. It seems if it gets so good press but where is she with this. I mean she has said in the past. Obviously britney is so that she looked up to you. Know madonna where you at beyond see where you at like. It's i they're not gonna do anything. I know that they don't have the power to like. Mariah was one of the very first people This last round win brittany spoke. That was you know open about it and now it's like now. It's in vogue to talk about it. But in the past miley shouted it out. Shares than behind all along demi levato. You tweeted nonstop about a yogurt shop for silent silent about and so that's the end up this entire entertainment industry for you to have a career. Yeah and that's the thing where you you mentioned us weekly like these are platforms and people. That could make a difference. It's not even so much of spreading awareness and it was for a long time but there's enough awareness now where this is like. I believe the biggest case like worldwide. Because it's been covered growing movement on read it. How did you get involved because you were actually at the first free brady was. Yes the ultra podcast. It's like you sewn waller something earth there at the original organized group. Yeah i mean it. There's a lot of people who have really taken off really good for them. They're doing good work but they have really used that being there from the beginning to build a platform for themselves which is fight him. I talked about often. But i couldn't get to the ones in downtown.

It was very small paparazzi with were there and entertainment tonight laughing goofing and they thought we were all ridiculous. Were there who were there. In legitimately for freebritney twenty five maybe twenty people at most. Yeah and it's always interesting to see who is attracted to these things since it's a wide variety of people of different backgrounds. And you always get people who think it's ridiculous you don't time to do anything else. Why are you talking about this. Why are you worried about this based in ignorance if they knew that basically what it is. It's a human rights issue at this point. And i think the aclu and the human rights campaign should be very vocal about this and should this could set the standard and help other people who are being taken advantage of situations..

"Those days it seemed okay to have a little fun and enjoy britney spears with like by three dresses one in pink one yellow and white and like struck down the same hallway in her house. Three talk like which one do you like. i'm rambus and i remember thinking. She seems happy. Like if a bit weird so brittany's graham receives this voice mail in which the caller alleges that they are former paralegal who worked on britney spears conservatorship and that the show is quote unquote onto something the something being that the discussions on the podcast have well exceeded like the initial idea and now are talking about is something rotten in the state of the spears household and lo and behold comes in this guy who says claims to have this insider intel there. I am not disclose who i am. i just heard the latest. So you guys are onto something I hear legal for an attorney that works print conservatorship. I'm no longer with them And what is happening is disturbing to say. The least is this voicemail ever verified. No but i'm assuming that hash tag free brittany takes it as gospel so there continues to be more and more fuel for free brittany. It does have a conspiratorial aspect to it so you know. People would look for secret messages in her instagram posts. You know there's a video where she does. She says you know lots of people have been asking questions about me. i'm answer some of them spoiler. She doesn't answer any of the questions. You actually want answered. But she gives us sort of sad and bizarre answer. About how frozen is her favorite movie. My favorite disney movie is probably frozen. Just because i really liked the fact that the two sisters and their relationship and then one goes off and lives in a castle just because she can't deal anymore and if you want to believe that these are signs you will find a community of people. I mean just someone who is perhaps prone to conspiratorial thinking. I can see how the tin foil hat spread. Especially because given the fact i mean the germ of a conspiracy theory is something true and i don't think most people want to acknowledge that. Is that like people are like. Oh they're wild now. Mike the germ of most conspiracy theories is something true. And what is true. That this conservatorship is wild. Lee overreaching and controlling part of her life. And so if you have that then is anything really that wild right. I don't want to cheapen freebritney by making it out to be this total like follow the white rabbit kinda thing. No because at its core it is a group of people who and let's be clear online. Fandom sometimes get things wrong and they sometimes move quicken loud in ways that ultimately are not a net. Good but but at its core like you're describing. This is a story about a plight of a woman who maybe is trapped by this. This legal thing is legal. Wing aka seventy percent of life. Freebritney shows up outside the courthouse when there are court appearances. Zoom bomb rope proceedings over the summer in two thousand twenty to the point where the proceedings get postponed for months. This is what i'm saying about. Sometimes the best of intentions perhaps don't delay court proceedings and then earlier this year in twenty twenty one the documentary framing britney spears Reported out by. Liz day of the new york times comes out and sort of mainstreams. What the freebritney community has been saying all along you know. This documentary lays out the ways in which britney spears was hounded by paparazzi. From the time she was a teenager on how journalists were invasive how when she dated justin timberlake and they broke up he was cast as the wrong boy next door and she was a slutty evil bitch. You had something to apologize for. Fuck you diane sawyer. You've seen that interview right. She she straight up asks britney spears he's going on television pretty much said you broke his heart. You did something that caused him so much pain so much suffering. What did you do i have. I've seen clips of that interview. Because i am a few years younger than you. A lot of britney story. I found out about within the last two or three years where it is so obviously evil that it kind of boggles the mind that diane sawyer and matt lauer journalists who are respected the inversion of the question. Diane sawyer opposes though is is what we're talking about today and what we're gonna talk about going forward when we talk about the testimony that britney spears gave in court on wednesday because we shouldn't be talking about what britney spears did to justin timberlake or what britney spears did to the media or the pop industry or her family. We should be talking about all of those parties. Did to britney spears after the break. We're finally going to hear from britney herself. Well you're gonna hear from brittany through rachel.

Have we solved the black hole information paradox?
"Universe is full of interesting and amazing things and none more mysterious than black holes and try black holes are these weird corners of the universe where we think secrets lie. We suspect that solution to the age. Old conflict between general relativity and quantum mechanics might lie right at the heart of black holes but of course nobody can see inside them. So it's incredibly frustrating to think that the answers to some of our deepest questions exist but are hidden from us. Does that drive physicist bunkers to know that there are out there but maybe they're trapped in a place where they can never get out. That's essentially the project of physics right. The answers are out there. The universe does contain these answers. And if you can come up with the right experiment you can force the universe to reveal those truth. That's basically how we accumulated all the knowledge that we have but yet frustrating to think that there might be places in the universe that nobody could ever look where information could hide forever escaping from even our most clever efforts to reveal them. You make it sound. Like viz are like paparazzi of the universe. You're trying to catch the universe. He no sunbathing and its portrait. Something i used to think of us as more like murder mystery detectives but yeah paparazzi. More positive way because the universe is beautiful. It deserves our attention. Yeah i guess. They're surprised to being the universe. We're just here trying to enjoy the beauty of the universe. You know and get it signature once in a while so we can sell it on ebay to the national enquirer or times magazine. One of those to whoever will take is part of the freebritney movement. I don't think there's a free universe movement where they're like. Hey physicist leave the universe alone. Some of the mystery no.

That following year after two hospitalizations brittany's father jamie assumed control over his daughter's estate along with an outside trust think people really know conservatorship as much as attention. It's gotten in recent months. I don't think people knew that it was weird for a young person to be under one. Let alone be under one for thirteen years. Thirteen years later the court mandated conservatorship. Still in effect denying the thirty nine year old control of her estate. Prompting the question. Why if britney through her lawyer though is asking that jamie. Her father not be a part of her conservatorship. Why does jamie then still insist on being her conservative. Jamie serves as britain's conservator. Because he loves her. He wants the best for britney. Jamie's attorneys say court documents. Show that when he stepped in as conservator in two thousand eight britney's assets were only worth two point. Eight million dollars. They say he has worked with his daughter to increase her net. Worth to nearly sixty million in two thousand nineteen britney's assets were clearly being mismanaged and was being taken advantage of financially by some of those around her two thousand eight britney has released four albums. Start on a prime time show. I felt like i had a connection with you. The moment you started seeing and even hosted her own las vegas residency but she has not performed professionally since two thousand eighteen abruptly canceling her. Las vegas residency. The following year saying her dad was sick and she needs to focus on family fans now turning to the performers instagram account for behind the scenes glimpses into her life and hints about her wellbeing including dance video and messages to fans. I pulled out all of my jackets in the next day. It was really hot. It was very confusing and last november. Her attorney telling a judge. My client has informed me that she is afraid of her father adding she will not perform again if her father is in charge of her career. Can you explain why britney's lawyer is saying. She doesn't want her dad in charge of her finances anymore. Throughout twenty twenty brittany and her father had many conversations and in fact early on in the pandemic they spent two weeks with other family members. Hunker down in louisiana and they spend a lot of time together and in that time brittany never expressed those words to her father. She's never asked him to step aside. Why she then wouldn't just go onto social media and say hey guys. I don't need to be freed. Any time britney wishes to enter conservatorship. She can have her attorney file a petition to terminate it. She's never exercised this right in the past thirteen years. But for the of the freebritney movement like dustin strand the question remains what really is happening in britney's life tomorrow. We have our free pretty rally for years. Strand has traveled from phoenix to los angeles. Bree support you. We've known for a long time as conservative has been just. The next conservatorship hearing is expected in march a fight about which britney herself remains publicly

Look at You know obviously the headline news of the supreme court declining after an inexplicable for month period of delay declining to Issue injunctive relief to prevent may masar from turning over trump's taxes to cy vance the manhattan district attorney and And as of this record he has those documents. So yeah so location of that on cleanup. Also it's probably just. Because i work with you but i'm team may czars. I don't know why you guys didn't address this on the show. Big major major debate. Ag says like mazaar or something. She put the emphasis on the end of it. And i look. We might be you and i might be wrong. But i also feel like i'm grandfathered into masert just absorb that from you so you know i if you made me wrong then. I'm holding you accountable for now team masar. It sounds better. I don't know. I agree so we was ours. Yeah there's this could be just trying to start our. Yeah no it's nothing will be that what about sure we'll be. What about sim sears. Only so you know you may remember last week. We did the Repressed memory with Poppy of ross kerry various things story. But we wanted to attack. We've got a few emails about like well. Actually there's maybe this tiny Theory justification for the science of repressed memories and lindsay. And i took well lindsey. She's the scientists took a look at the evidence and we did see a little bit of the other side of that just to give a full picture of the possible science there There's some interesting stuff we stand by. Basically everything we said in that first episode about repressed memory and and the panic and all that stuff is still totally valid. But it was worth you know. We like being totally clear as c. Say on this show presenting a full picture of the science and so we delved into sort of the other side of that so super fascinating episode. Oh that sounds awesome. I haven't heard this week's sl yet. Largely because i was prepping late like one. Am your time on the night before. So i feel like it's it's okay buddy. Okay you don't get to the top of my cue but You know. I usually You know reading eleven hundred in a pile of documents were snorkel out of the time. I don't blame me for all right. Would make that into a t shirt
"freebritney" Discussed on REALITY OF REALITY
"But that doesn't mean you need to be in guardian exactly so this is what people that may my head explode belly p. There were a few people. I saw on social media people that i know not random people saying like cut it. Cut the crap with the freebritney stuff. This woman's obviously under guardianship for a reason you know. She's got mental health issues. I'm thinking well. Ok connie's not in a guardianship tons of people. Donald trump was president of the united states. He's not under guardianship like arena. You know put every so mentally ill person under a guardianship. That was insane to me and depressing. Yeah but i also think misogynistic. I think that factors into a two for sure. Look the hope. Is that in terms of chain that something like the freebritney movement is is the catalyst that the match is going to like the spark. That's going to start the fire riot. Will that's the difference. Is that right now. You have a a group of very passionate people who have been inspired to organize and come together in order to expose this and help their You know help their their Britney and help them out of it and the one thing is that why the bad guys always get away with this type of stuff. The bad guys are organized and the good guys cannot get organized and nas. What freebritney is they are a inspiration for all of us who are advocating on how to organize ourselves because that's been the biggest The biggest Hard thing for for advocacy. Is that people on the good side. They don't they're always inter-fighting they're always a high in. I mean yeah. I don't want to go down that rabbit hole with politics but that's one hundred percent true and they've done it on an international level. I was on a zoom with a. I don't know maybe a month or two ago. There was paris. You know multiple places around the globe represented. I was like they have built and inter. You know which is cool with social media. You can do that now. And i think the confluence of covid also with everybody. On lockdown people were on social media more people their eyeballs. Were on it more so in a way the timing was good but i just hope that again. I think it's confusing to people that She's really in two different types of conservatorship so the hope obviously is that. This is a free woman. It's not enough for her to just you know have co control of her finances. She needs to make decisions on her own. The i think that's more important of her person. Yeah i've heard your free will. She has no free well. Yeah i think if If everybody in guardianship and caught up in guardianship had a freebritney movement We wouldn't be in this place anymore and hopefully win. Britney does.
Britney Spears documentary reveals what's wrong with entertainment media
"That documentary premiered framing britney spears and it breaks down really like britney's history her rise to fame her mental breakdown that she had and then just her conservatorship. That's been going on since two thousand eight. It's her dad jamie spears. Who is her conservator. And so a the freebritney movement has grown over the past couple years and really this documentary. Just kind of like i mean. It's been something that's been going on for years with. His documentary sparked fresh interest in it too and a lot of criticism and people calling out. Justin timberlake to yeah. I feel like this. This documentary definitely started a conversation about the way that we treated and the way that we treat celebrities because a little brittany. She started when she was a baby. Literally and so. The question is being asked in interviews and the way that she was being treated and scrutinized by the media and justin timberlake just using all that to his advantage. Which let's talk about that apology. Dude quote unquote apology. I mean okay. I completely agree. Documentary was just so heartbreaking disgusting and just like the things that they were saying to her like let's talk about your breasts and she's sixteen. I'm like who thought that that was okay. And why did any of us watching this. It was okay and was diane sawyer interviewing her and she was like this congresswoman says that she wants to shoot you in the head can't can't you understand that it's like what's no thing to say. Her gods like just the way hashtag like we're sorry. Brittany started trending after that and god is just so awful the way that we just Like i talked about her body. In the media's scrutinized her and abused her as so sting they had all the audacity and none of the accountability. And i think the problem is who do you really hold accountable for that when it everybody let it happen a and like it's so far gone with with justin timberlake's apology. First of all the fact that he had to throw in janet jackson in there at the end like an ad lib like. She deserves her own apology. You ruined her career to sweetie and he never said what. He was apologizing for to them in that apology. Did you see that. He's just like i want to say that. I'm sorry to britney janet. And then i mean he did make a you know. He acknowledged that he has a black and brown women. People of color women. Lgbtq people are judged much more than he will ever be as you know a straight white guy and like yes yes. You're just realizing that just in good
Britney Spears' conservatorship, explained
"Justin timberlake publicly apologized to britney spears even though their relationship ended like twenty years ago. The apology has a lot less to do their bygone romance and much more to do the reckoning over how this country treats its famous young women and britney spears has gone from something of a villain in this story to something much more closely resembling a hero. The freebritney movement deserves much of the credit for that transformation. It's a fan driven campaign which hopes to liberate brittany from her conservatorship constance. Grady has been covering free brittany for. Vox so a conservative ship is illegal solution for what happens if you're an adult but you can't make decisions for your life in your best interests. So this is something that is used if you have a mental health condition or brain injury You're developing dementia. And you're unable to care for yourself. So accord will assign someone to do that for you. So britney went under conservatorship in two thousand eight and under the terms of her conservatorship. She's not in control of her finances or business or personal life so for about two years now going back actually to the point that the conservatorship was set in place in two thousand eight but most intensely for the past two years and especially now since the release of be new documentary framing. britney spears. Fans have been speculating. That the conservatorship has left britney spears as a prisoner in her life and that she might need to be rescued. Okay well let's go back to two thousand eight and talk about why britney spears was placed under this conservatorship. If you think back to two thousand eight you might remember that. There was just nonstop goth coverage of britney spears that year relief and in two thousand seven especially as well. They're repoprt ati following her around. All the time would like wait outside her limo when she was going to clubs to take up strict photos of her and then the entire internet would discuss her underwear and she was starting to react back to them. In increasingly bizarre ways she started yelling at the paparazzi in a british accent once he attacked hover car with an umbrella. Please please seed saved her own head up. Which was all photographed by paper off. They're very famous pictures of her sort of grinning and holding up a to her scalp. She went in and out of rehab. A few times that to the pictures were all over teams. The press helps them now and is performed at the emmy in two thousand seven in this kind of infamous performance where she was sleepwalking through it the press discussed whether she was fat now lot there was a lot going on for her. It was not a good year. Fears has lost so she fits under psychiatric hold twice. What does that mean. She is put in a mental hospital and not allowed to leave what happened. I think that one angle of what happened to britney that we have to hit here. Is that the media industries incredibly sexist straight and even more so when she was coming up. There's one subject we didn't discuss. What was that. everyone's talking about it. Well you'll breasts. There is that whole narrative about whether britain a real virgin and that some like ruin adults would ask her at press conferences. And my of virgin. I think especially when she was with justin timberlake and they've never really cared about justin timberlake's virginity because who would. It was just about britney in her schoolgirl uniform. And you know each. She actually a good girl. There was this intense very sexualize focus on her life. That just wasn't there. In quite the same way for her male cohort. No matter how famous they were. It's hard to imagine that that did anything good for her. And then why does the conservative. Come about a month after the second psychiatric hold. Her father says these are not working. Long-term go under a hold. A doctor will say okay. You're fit to live your own life. Now she'll go out and then she'll spiral and it happens again. So he asked the court for emergency temporary conservatorship over brittany the courts. Brandt that order and then it becomes permanent.

"It's march fourth two thousand nine hundred and andrew wallet. The lawyer jaime brought in to act as co conservator wants out. He submits a motion to a court in los angeles. After eleven years on the job he wants to be removed as britney's co conservator immediately and the court agrees which has got to be a good thing right. One less person running britney's life while yeah now that while it is out. There is only one person in charge. Unfortunately that one person is jamie and almost as soon as he takes complete control. Something suspicious happens. Tmz runs a story. Yes i know i know. Take it with a thousand grains of salt. Obviously but they run. The story saying britney checked herself into a mental hospital because she's quote distraught over her dad's illness. But here's the weird thing jamie doesn't seem like he's all that sick at least he's not bedridden or anything because right around the time. The tmz story comes out someone snaps a picture of jamie driving his truck alone. Louisiana headed out to a fishing hole. Oh yeah that is fishy love it and then it gets even more confusing and mysterious a fan. Podcast called britney's graham releases a voicemail from a fan who says he's a paralegal who worked on britney's case here listen brittany has been in the mental facility since mid-january of course sustaining yesterday said she entered last week. That it's not true. She's been there since january and there is no time line. There is no end in sight for this state at the central facility to end. She did not want to go. This was not a decision she made at all now. We don't know if the voice mail is real but for the freebritney crowd. It confirms all their worst fears that this conservatorship isn't about taking care of brittany. It's about controlling her making her a prisoner forcing her to do things she doesn't want and get help she doesn't need and it's not just freebritney diehards. Who feel this way. Celebrities start to get in on the action. Miley cyrus shouts freebritney from a concert. Stage share tweets about it. Too and eve starts rocking freebritney. T shirts even sharon. Osborne speaks up saying when there's a lot of money involved nothing would surprise me. It's time to have a life and maybe head dad can find a job and celebrities. Aren't the only ones joining the freebritney chorus someone else. Someone close to britney has been liking posts from fans who say britney's being held against her will brittany's mom lynn. Lynn has never had any official role in britney's conservatorship. She pretty much just relied on jamie to keep her informed about what's going on now. She wants to change that. She wants the courts to start informing her about everything. That's going on. And anything jamie is doing on their daughters behalf and as a first step. She's going to accompany her daughter. To a hearing about the conservatorship its may tenth two thousand and nineteen brittany and her mom just pulled up in front of a courthouse in downtown los angeles when they climb out of the car. They're met by the roar of the crowd. That's waiting out front. People are waving handmade signs that say dissolve the conservatorship. They're shouting free. Freebritney as brittany makes her way toward the entrance. She reaches over and takes her mom's hand. She looks calm relaxed. It's a closed door hearing so we don't know exactly what goes down once they get inside but we do know that britney talks to the court about her children her career and issues with her medicare and the judge hears her out. She orders an expert medical evaluation of brittany. Find out if the conservatorship is really still necessary. She also wants investigators to interview everyone involved and to review britney's medical and financial records to see if jamie really has been acting. In brits best interest they'll have to submit their report in september. Seems like a win while it is the first time the court actually seems interested in hearing what britney has to say when the hearings over and security guards escort brit back to her car. She does something kind of curious. She slips her heels and walks to the car barefoot. Maybe they're giving her blisters. Maybe but to freebritney supporters. It's a sign of something else. They see it as an act of rebellion navy. Brittany is finally going to break free but then on august twenty fourth two thousand nineteen. Something happens that changes everything britney and her two boys jaden. Sean are visiting jamie at his home in l. a. i picture them grilling hot. Dogs are playing wiffle ball just a nice family gathering. But then sean who's thirteen at this point says something that ticks jamie off. We don't know what we do know. There's no more wiffle ball after. That jamie starts shouting. And he freaks sean out so much that the poor kid runs into a bedroom and locks himself inside which apparently just makes jamie even angrier. So what does he do. He breaks down the bedroom door. Grabs sean and apparently starts violently shaking him. Oh my god yeah britney eventually gets her kids out of there and luckily sean isn't hurt at least not physically but this altercation isn't about to go away not after kevin finds out about it the very next day. He reports jamie to the sheriff's department. Good yeah the. Da declines to press charges because of insufficient evidence. Jamie's getting such bad press. He temporarily steps down as conservator of personal life though he'll still oversee her estate. He says it's because of personal health reasons but it seems pretty clear to me that that's not really the case to replace himself. Jamie hires a woman named jodi. Montgomery who specializes in conservatorship to take over. I mean i know what brittany wants us to be free but at least getting rid of jamie has got to be a step in the right direction except brittany. Pays the price for jamie's freak out in other ways. Kevin didn't just go to the cops. He also went to the courts and they agreed to revise the custody agreement. It's not going to be fifty fifty anymore now. Kevin will get the kids seventy percent of the time. It's a crushing blow to brittany for. Boys are her lifeline. If britney wasn't pissed at her dad before she's furious now she wants out of the conservatorship now more than ever but she doesn't get her wish. Remember that september deadline when the court appointed experts are going to weigh in. Well it comes and goes and the conservatorship stays in place fast forward to february twenty twenty. We spent sixty dollars to visit a k. mart in the middle of los angeles well. it was a k. Mart now it's been transformed into something called the zone everywhere you look. There's brittany memorabilia and full-scale re-creations of the sets from some of her most iconic. There's gym like in the baby. One more time video. There's a stage like the one from her circus tour now. I know what you're thinking. This is just some big cash. Grab but i think there are actually some good intentions here. This is like a house of worship. It's a police fans can come and pay tribute to their idle but there is one thing. That's a little weird about his own. It's totally fixated on the past. There aren't any recent pictures of britney as one newspaper points out. This is a museum dedicated to the britney of old. It's like the britney of today doesn't even exist. Apparently the guy who organized zone never.

"It's january twenty eighth two thousand eight. It's been three weeks since bernie out of the hospital after her. First fifty one fifty psychiatric hold now. She's hanging out at her new boyfriend's house. His name is adn glebe. He's this english guy with spiky hair and this goatee thing on his chin. Actually it's not even really go t. It's like this thin stripe of hair that runs from the bottom of his lip down his chin. I'm not really sure what that's about. I think it's called style ever heard of it okay. I'll look that up later anyway. They started dating a month ago but they've known each other for awhile because get this. Adnan is 'paparazzi. So he's one of the guys who used to follow britney. Wait what explain please. Yeah it does seem odd. One magazine will actually call it. Stockholm syndrome. i'm going to quote here. They say she has a self created relationship with the paparazzi and that she has been chased for so long that she has come to not only accept them but need them in her life. They say the paps help change her tires. Pump her gas and give her directions when she's lost and get this. She seems to be basking in the attention and she seems to be trapped. Okay i'm still hung up on the self created relationship. Part of that quote that implies she had a choice in whether she was followed around by dozens of cameramen. Yeah i know. I thought about that. I think every celebrity has to figure out what kind of relationship they're going to have with the tabloids I mean they're they're in your face. All the time and britney really tried everything just to get some peace crying begging them to go away getting angry. Maybe trying to be friends was another way to deal with them either way. Now she's happy with adnan in fact the week after she got out of the hospital he took a day trip to mexico. Brittany wore a bright pink wig as a disguise to throw the pats off the trail. Because nothing says don't look at me like a bright pink. Wait i know it definitely does not work. But she's excited about the new relationship and lately she's been spending a lot of time with him so much time. Apparently she's even developed a weird british accent. Okay trying to imagine it. Don't i would imagine he's one of the few people who understands what she's going through on a daily basis anyway back to january twenty eighth. Nina non are hanging out at his house. When sam lutfi comes to pick her up sam if you remember is her spin golly slash manager britney climbs into his car and right away. Sam picks a fight. He doesn't like how much time she's spending with. Adnan and away. From sam when they're two hundred yards from her gated community brittany's had enough. She tells sam to stop the car then. She jumps out and tells him to leave now. But sam refuses and then britney starts sobbing and of course the paparazzi always lurking. Get the whole thing on film. And that's when someone decides. It's a good time to send text to lynn. Britney's mom it says something like get over to britney's house right away. She and sam let fear having a fight. Lynn hasn't trusted sam since day one. She thinks he's trying to control bread so she decides to take action and the first call she makes is to jamie her ex. They've been divorced for a few years but they keep in touch especially when it comes to brittany now and brittany on the other hand aren't exactly on the best of terms. He and her manager pushed her into rehab and when she fired her manager. Jamie took his side britney tried to write them out of her life but he still hovering around trying to get involved. But here's the thing about jamie. He's kind of a hothead and he usually thinks he knows what's best when he gets the call from lynn. He's like what do you need me to do. Lynn tells him she's gonna get a friend. Drive her over to brittany's and jamie should meet them at the gate. They'll figure out what's going on when they get there and what happens when they get there will set off a chain of events that will end with. Well you'll just have to listen to the end to find out..

Seated beside her in the first class cabin is her new beau. Kevin federal line britney's european tour kicked off two days after they met and even though they barely knew each other she couldn't bear to be away from him. She was like.
