Over the past year, we’ve learned more and more about the conservatorship that Britney Spears has endured, under her father’s “care”. Gross details have emerged about how her family abused her money and controlled every move she made, including what she could and could not do with her own body. Fans, and decent human beings everywhere, and grown outraged over this ridiculous setup. Well Spears has had a win, with her father finally agreeing to step away from the arrangement and set her free from his control as of yesterday. However, people have begun to speculate why he’s had such a drastic change of heart after years of refusing to consider dropping the conservatorship. Spears’ attorney told NBC that he believes the shift is her father “avoiding accountability”. Basically, he doesn’t want to testify under oath about the abuse he inflicted on his daughter. So while this is a win for Britney Spears, it also happens to let her abuser off the hook.
