"The conservatee has requested that I seek from the court a status hearing at which she can address the court directly," the 39-year-old's attorney Sam Ingham III told Judge Brenda Penny on Tuesday, April 27. 

Ingham did not reveal what exactly Spears will address in court but said the appearance would be related to the "status of the conservatorship."

"My client asked that it be done on expedited basis," Ingham noted, as Britney wanted to appear in court within 30 days. The hearing was set for June 23.

Other matters, such as Spears' estate's accounting documents, were pushed back to July 14 and the judge granted a motion to seal documents relating to Jodi Montgomery from public view. 

Montgomery is set to become the conservator of Spears' person, Page Six reported, but her father, Jamie Spears, will remain the conservator of her estate with Bessemer Trust.

Jamie has been the "Toxic" singer's conservator since its creation in 2008 following a very public breakdown. However, last year her attorney told the court that Britney is "afraid of her father" and would not perform again if he remained in charge.

This is the first time in recent years that Britney will appear in person in court

Ingham previously filed to remove Jamie in August 2020, OK! previously reported. Britney "does not want her father as co-conservator and we recognize removal is a separate issue," Ingham said in February.

"The Probate Court's rulings today show the court's confidence in our client Jamie Spears and Bessemer Trust to manage the conservatorship of Ms. Spears' estate together. My client looks forward to working with Bessemer to continue an investment strategy in the best interests of his daughter," Jamie’s attorney Vivian L. Thoreen told CNN at the time.  

"I love my daughter and I miss her very much. When a family member needs special care and protection, families need to step up, as I have done for the last 12-plus years, to safeguard, protect and continue to love Britney unconditionally," Jamie told the outlet in December.

Meanwhile, Britney's mother, Lynne, filed documents objecting to Jamie's $890,000 in legal fees; Jamie's team fired back with saying she had "no knowledge" of what's best for Britney.

Amid concern for Britney, after the Framing Britney Spears documentary was released, the "Womanizer" singer assured fans of her well-being.

"Yes, I’m totally fine. I’m extremely happy, I have a beautiful home, beautiful children," Spears said during a Q&A earlier this month. "I’m taking a break right now because I’m enjoying myself."

"She and Kevin [Federline] are getting along better than they have in years, and there's talk that she hopes to eventually have the boys stay at her place more often. But Britney doesn't want to rock the boat too much [right now]," a source told OK! of Britney's ex-husband, with whom she shares sons Jayden James, 14, and Sean Preston, 15.
