One of the first Britney Spears hearings since the release of a documentary about her conservatorship brought out a huge wave of #FreeBritney supporters … but it looks like it was all for nothing.
Check out the scores of people who showed up to a courthouse in downtown L.A. Wednesday for a hearing in the case about hundreds of thousands Brit’s trying to recoup for her conservatorship … but nothing ended up happening on that front.
The judge continued the matter for another day — and it looks like the whole hearing lasted about 20 minutes max. And, yet … these folks were determined to have their voices heard. As you can see, the troupe showed up in force — with signs and posters and even megaphones in hand.
It’s unclear why they arrived for this one with such numbers … it’s the 2nd hearing since the release of ‘Framing Britney Spears’ on Feb. 5. On Feb. 11 — the first such hearing following the controversial doc — it was determined Jamie would stay on as co-conservator along with Bessemer Trust Company.
As for what was supposed to be happening today — a judge could’ve officially weighed in on whether the estate could recoup the $ 308k Britney says her dad paid to her former business manager, Tri Star Sports & Entertainment Group.
Remember, Britney claimed after she stopped performing in early 2019 … Tri Star allegedly asked Jamie for more dough, since the 5% commission they get from Brit is based on revenue from her getting on stage. They asked for $ 500k minimum per year, and Britney says Jamie shot ’em $ 308k and change … without running it by her people, or trying to negotiate a better deal.
What we do know for sure … they wanna #FreeBritney, whatever that means.
