"I want to end the conservatorship without being evaluated," the pop star firmly stated to the judge. "In the meantime, I want this therapist to come to my home. I'm not willing to go to Westlake and be embarrassed by all these paparazzi."

She continued, "After I've lied and told the whole world I'm OK and I'm happy...I'm not OK. I'm not happy, I can't sleep."

Among the bombshells dropped on the stand, according to NBC News, Britney alleged that she has been subjected to numerous psych evaluations, medications and that she has been traumatized by her father through his control.

She addressed her popular Vegas residency, telling the judge that he told her management she didn't want to do the show and it was too much, but was forced to. She also claimed they changed the medication and put her on Lithium, which had a terrible effect on her. She said she was scared and her whole family "did nothing."

The superstar's situation was so incredibly dire that she feels that the people who did this to her should not be able to get away with it and that she wishes she could sue her family.

"The laws need to change," Britney pleaded. "Ma'am, I've worked since I was 17 years old. I can't go somewhere unless I meet someone every week in an office. I truly believe this conservatorship is abusive, but ma'am there are a thousand conservatorships that are abusive as well. I want to end the conservatorship."

After management and her family used the teen pop sensation for monetary purposes, she said she pleaded for a break from Vegas after four years but wasn't heard. She said she was told she was uncooperative, which was "absolutely not true."

Britney also claimed she was sent to a small home in Beverly Hills for rehab once, and it costs $60,000. She said they were trying to hurt her and that her father, who currently gets paid $16,000 per month for his services co-managing the financial aspect of the conservatorship, "loved it."

Britney also slammed the control over her personal life. The entertainer detailed how she had no privacy at home and there were times she couldn't see her boyfriend or kids.  She said the caretakers to the conservatorship would violate her privacy and watch her change while she was naked.

"It took a year during COVID to get self-care methods. Conservator lied and said I could get nothing done. I couldn't get my nails done ... anything," she complained.

On the stand, Britney also revealed her wishes to get married and have a baby. "I wanted to take the IUD out and have a baby but conservator won't let me because they don't want me to have a baby," she said in regards to her future with her boyfriend Sam Ashgari.

The hearing ended with the judge thanking Britney for having the courage to speak out. The judge's decision will be presented at a later date.

As OK! previously reported, sealed court documents that were released this week via The New York Times revealed that Britney sought to get out of the conservatorship back when it began. The documents shed light on the fact that the singer was "sick of being taken advantage of" and believed she was "the one working and earning her money but everyone around her is on her payroll."

A court investigator relied that at the time, "She [Britney] articulated that she feels the conservatorship has become an oppressive and controlling tool against her. Too much control … Too, too much!" According to the investigator, the Crossroads star believed that her father was "obsessed" with controlling every aspect of her life.

Ahead of her big day in court, the "Stronger" singer had the support of Asghari, who took to Instagram Wednesday morning to post a picture of himself in a #FreeBritney t-shirt.

This is not the first time her 27-year old boyfriend, whom the "Gimme More" singer started dating in 2016, has spoken his mind on what he thinks of the conservatorship as well as her father. Back in February, the model turned actor explained via social media that he had "zero respect" for Jamie and that he wanted "nothing to do with the man."
