He added that he wished Britney “all the health and happiness in the world”.

En junio, she appeared at a court hearing and characterised the conservatorship as abusive. The following week, a judge denied a request to have Jamie Spears removed from the conservatorship.

En el Reino Unido, she has had 23 Cima 10 singles, six of them No 1s. Her most recent album is 2016’s Glory.
