BRITNEY SPEARS ADDRESSES DOCUMENTARIES ABOUT HER AMID CONSERVATORSHIP BATTLE: ‘I’M DEEPLY FLATTERED’

In June 2021, she mentioned that during her conservatorship, she had an IUD in place, and her conservators wouldn’t let her “go to the doctor and take it out.”

Spears addressed the court in a hearing at the time regarding her conservatorship and laid into the legal guardianship, calling it “abusive” and saying it’s left her “traumatized” and “depressed.”

Spears has accused her conservator, mainly her father, Jamie Spears, of preventing her from having another child while she was under her conservatorship.  Spears' conservatorship of hers ended in November.

She also alleged that the team managing her and her conservatorship — her father Jamie in particular — has been extremely restrictive over her life and has limited her life in various ways.

“I would like to progressively move forward, and I want to have the real deal. I want to be able to get married and have a baby,” she said when asking Judge Brenda Penny to terminate the conservatorship. “I was told right now in the conservatorship, I’m not able to get married or have a baby.”

The star said that she has an intrauterine device (IUD) — a long-term form of contraception — inside her body to prevent her from becoming pregnant.

“I wanted to take the [IUD] out so I could start trying to have another baby,” Spears continued. “But this so-called team won’t let me go to the doctor to take it out because they don’t want me to have children — any more children. “

Spears has expressed her interest in having another child before, posting to Instagram in November stating she wants to add a little girl to her family.
