Both musicians previously shared a manager, Sam Lutfi. According to The New Yorker, Love called Lutfi a “street hustler” and took out a restraining order against him in 2018 after the manager told her to “go choke on opiates and die”.
In her testimony, Spears revealed details about wanting to end her conservatorship without being medically evaluated. She claimed that she was forced to take lithium after she publicly announced a break from live shows.
“It’s a strong drug. You can go mentally impaired if you stay on it longer than five months. I felt drunk. I couldn’t even have a conversation with my mom or dad about anything,” she said.
She also explained that her team allegedly wouldn’t let her remove her IUD. “I want to be able to get married and have a baby,” Spears said. “I have an IUD in my body right now that won’t let me have a baby and my conservators won’t let me go to the doctor to take it out.”
“I feel ganged up on. I feel bullied and I feel left out and alone,” she told the court.
