When she had a mental breakdown in about 2008, they set up a conservatorship because she wasn’t capable of handling herself or her money. Understandable at the time. However, it controls all aspects of her life and it appears that the conservator (her father) had been abusing the position. She seems capable of caring for herself (has been for quite some time) so the conservatorship should end. If they hadn’t abused it and her, then she likely would never have had much of an issue with it. They are supposed to help people not capable of making rational decisions (mental problems, dementia, etc), but in this case, the conservator abused the role likely due to Britney’s vast wealth. Wouldn’t be surprised if there are fraud charges brought against certain people in the future. I also do not really follow celebrity stuff, but this is an interesting case.
