Josh Duggar was arrested on April 29

The Sun can exclusively report that Josh, 33, has been arrested and jailed in Arkansas on April 29.

The bombshell bust comes just six years after claims he molested five girls as a teen.

The Sun exclusively learned that fired reality star Josh was taken into custody on April 29 in Arkansas.

The incident is related to the 2019 Homeland Security raid on his now-shuttered used car dealership in Springdale, Arkansas, a source claimed.

In November 2019, Homeland Security Investigations conducted an “ongoing federal investigation” at the lot, but no charges were filed against Duggar until now.

A source exclusively told The Sun “the family has known that this has been coming for weeks, and Josh has been preparing himself.

“They are praying together for Josh and Anna, who is standing by her husband as she always has. Family members are extremely concerned by what is happening and they just want to find out the truth.

“They know that this will put them in the spotlight for all the wrong reasons, and are stunned they are having to go through this again.

“The family will be speaking out shortly and hope this in many ways will bring them closer together and even closer to God.”

The arrest comes shortly after Josh’s wife Anna confirmed she is pregnant with the couple’s seventh child.

On April 23, Anna, 32, shared the news in a new Instagram post, which included a video of her and Josh opening an umbrella as pink confetti flew out as part of the gender reveal.

Anna and the Duggar family previously stood by Josh through his disturbing sex abuse scandal in 2015

    The show was TLC’s most popular, averaging 2.3 million viewers per new episode in Season 10.

    Anna and Josh have six children together, three daughters and three sons, and she recently confirmed she is pregnant with their seventh child.

  • WHY HAS DUGGAR BEEN ARRESTED?

    The charges are related to the 2019 Homeland Security raid on his now-shuttered used car dealership in Springdale, Arkansas, a source told The Sun.

    In November 2019, Homeland Security Investigations conducted an “ongoing federal investigation” at the lot, but no charges were filed against Josh- until now.

    “What I’m really concerned about with regard to that,” he began. “We have not seen the bottom of that yet. My dad used to say that for every rat you see, there’s 50 you don’t.

    “To assume that everything you see is everything there is, would really be naive. I just don’t believe that the whole truth has come out yet.”

  • FBI NOT INVOLVED IN JOSH DUGGAR’S CASE

    No charges have been filed against Duggar. He is being held without bail.

  • JIM BOB AND MICHELLE WAIT TO TELL POLICE OF JOSH’S ALLEGED MOLESTATIONS

    After Josh confessed to his father Jim Bob on three separate instances regarding his alleged molestations, Jim Bob and his wife Michelle sought help not from authorities but from church officials.

    In 2002, then 14-year-old Josh is alleged to have molested five girls, four of whom were later identified as his sisters.

    Church officials told the Duggars to send Josh to a Christian program in Little Rock that instilled hard labor with counseling.

    Following the three-month program, the Duggars and Josh reported the confessed attacks to police.

    Authorities then re-examined the case in 2006 following an anonymous tip they received on Arkansas’ child abuse hotline, but the statute of limitations had expired.

  • JOSH TOLD HIS DAD JIM BOB THREE TIMES ABOUT HIS ALLEGED MOLESTATIONS

    Josh Duggar apparently told his father, Duggar patriarch Jim Bob, about his supposed molestations on three separate instances when the teen is alleged to have committed them.

    Then 14-year-old Josh is alleged to have molested five girls, four of whom his sisters, in 2002 and 2003.

    Jim Bob and his wife Michelle came clean about Josh’s allegations in 2015, saying they punished him after he confessed, but said his actions continued.

    In March 2013, months after Josh confessed to allegedly molesting a family friend sleeping on the family’s couch, he allegedly molested his 5-year-old sister.

    After reportedly fondling her breasts and genitals, he ran out of the room and confessed to his father, Jim Bob told police.

    Josh reportedly told his father on three separate dates of his alleged molestations before any action was taken by his parents.

  • JOSH “CRIED” TO HIS FATHER ABOUT THE MOLESTATION ALLEGATIONS

    Josh Duggar, who is alleged to have molested five girls when he was 14 years old, apparently went “crying” to his father after the supposed acts.

    In 2002, teen Josh allegedly told his he had snuck into his sisters’ room at least four or five times a night to touch them “on the breasts and vaginal areas” as they lay sleeping.

    When the InTouch report came out in June 2015, the family acknowledged that four of the victims were Josh’s younger sisters.

    Josh apparently had told his father he also fondled one of his sisters she slept on the couch.

    He also confessed to touching a family friend who was equally sleeping on the couch.

  • JOSH ATTENDED A CHRISTIAN PROGRAM FOLLOWING THE MOLESTATION ALLEGATIONS

    After it was surfaced in his family in mid-2002 and then by March 2003 that Josh had allegedly molested girls while he was a 14-year-old, his parents Jim Bob and Michelle had sent Josh to a Christian program to reflect on his actions.

    He attended the program from March 17, 2003 to July 17, 2003, where he was required to do physical work and received counseling.

    However, when interviewed 12 years after the incident when an Intouch report broke the story, Josh’s mom Michelle said she did not consider the program to be a legitimate training center.

    When Josh returned home, he “apologized” to the girls. heis alleged of molesting, and said they had “forgiven him.”

  • WHO ARE THE FOUR SISTERS JOSH IS ALLEGED TO HAVE MOLESTED?

    Josh Duggar confessed to molesting a number of girls when he was 14 years old, but police never pressed charges as reports of the allegations had come out over a decade since it happened, exceeding the statute of limitations.

    However, police documents from the 2002 police filing indicated Josh is alleged to have molested four of his sisters.

    They were identified as Jessa Duggar, Jill Duggar, Joy-Anna Duggar and Jinger Duggar.

    Their father Jim Bob apparently took action into his own hands, when in March 2003 he “met with the elders of his church and told them what was going on” but stopped short of alerting the police.

  • JOSH DUGGAR SMIRKS IN MUGSHOT PHOTO

    Josh Duggar, who a source exclusively told The Sun he voluntarily turned himself into federal authorities on Thursday, gave a smirk in his mugshot photo.

    He is being held at the Washington County Detention Center in Fayetteville in Arkansas.

    No charges have been filed against Duggar, with the only words listed on his arrest page as “hold for other dept.”

  • WHY DIDN’T JOSH DUGGAR FACE CHARGES FOR HIS ALLEGED MOLESTATION?

    Josh Duggar was accused of molesting five girls when he was a teen in the early 2000s.

    Josh confessed to molestation in 2002 when he, as a 14-year-old, allegedly fondled the breasts and genitals of several victims while they slept in the Duggar’s home.

    He also allegedly molested a girl who sat on his lap, placing his hand beneath her dress while in the family’s laundry room.

    However, he was never charged with a crime for the alleged molestations, apparently because Arkansas police cited the statute of limitations for prosecuting the crimes had expired.

    His dad Jim Bob told police he sent Josh to a Christian counseling program for a few months, where he “did manual labor and had counseling.”

  • JOSH TO MAKE AN APPEARANCE IN FEDERAL COURT TOMORROW

    Josh Duggar, who a source exclusively told The Sun was arrested by federal authorities today, is expected to make an appearance in federal court tomorrow.

    The shamed reality star voluntarily turned himself into federal authorities after the family had known for weeks of his impending arrest.

    Charges against Duggar have yet to be revealed.

    His arrest was in connection to a used car dealership he owned in Arkansas, which closely followed a raid conducted by the Department of Homeland Security in 2019.

    Last year, Duggar was forced to pay $ 5,000 in attorney’s fees and costs to Carl Echols, a man Duggar illegally a five-acre property from.

  • ANNA CALLS HER HUSBAND JOSH A “DILIGENT WORKER” BEFORE HIS ARREST

    Anna defended her husband almost a week before his arrest earlier today, saying he was a “diligent worker” who “provides” for her family.

    Federal authorities arrested and jailed Josh on Thursday in connection to a raid conducted by the Department of Homeland Security on his used car dealership in 2019.

    A source exclusively told The Sun the family has known about the arrest for weeks.

    Just six days ago, Anna defended her husband as she has through the years despite his alleged infidelity and even allegations of molestation of girls almost two decades earlier.

    “Yes, my husband is a diligent worker and provides well for our family,” Anna, 32, replied, according to People.

    Anna has not yet commented on her husband’s arrest.

    Her last Instagram post was shared five days ago when she announced the couple expecting a baby girl.

    The baby will be their seventh child.

  • WHO IS JILL DUGGAR AND HOW IS SHE DISTANCING HERSELF FROM HER FAMILY?

    Jill the fourth child and the second daughter of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, has been known to defy her parents’ strict religious beliefs and has been increasingly distancing herself from her family and her 18 other siblings.

    She has become estranged from her family recently after she and her husband Derick stepped away from their strict conservative values.

    Jill, 29, shared a sweet 15-minute video of Israel’s first day of kindergarten where she and husband Derick Dillard took him to school and then went back to pick him up.

    The 5-year-old seemed very excited to be starting school and even waved his mom off as she delivered him to his teacher.

    Following his first day at school, fans praised the mom for signing up her son for school.

    One fan wrote: “I hope Israel loves going to school.”

    And a third said: “I think it’s awesome you are sending him to school and going against the grain of you family values! You do you, you’re doing great and following your gut.”

    This isn’t the first time that Jill has gone her own route as she recently promoted her rebel cousin Amy’s risqué clothing line by wearing a leopard, tie-die and floral loungewear short sets while also showing off a maxi dress.

    Jill has butted heads with her parents Jim Bob, 55, and Michelle, 53, as Derick claimed they are also banned from the family compound when Jill’s father isn’t there.

    Derick exclusively told The Sun: “I think he’s mainly worried about the influence we might have on his children.”

    He also claimed that Jim Bob had tried to force him to sign an NDA in 2019 but that “the truth” was more important, and that the show had “begged” Jill and Derick to return but they refused.

    He recalled: “We were humiliated and threatened when we first tried to not film.

  • JILL DUGGAR DEFIES STRICT DAD JIM BOB AND WEARS SHORT SHORTS AFTER JOSH IS ARRESTED

    Hours after her brother Josh was arrested, Jill Duggar posted an Instagram story of her wearing short shorts – in complete defiance of her strict Christian father Jim Bob.

    The former Counting On star has rebelled against her family’s austere rules in recent years, which has led to an ongoing feud with her parents Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar.

    “These shorts are supers fun and nice and springy so check them out!” Jill wrote on Instagram with shorts that were just slightly above the knee.

    Jill, 29, was modeling a clothes haul as part of a sponsored post and showed off various outfits including a pair of short shorts, and several dresses that finished above the knee.

    The mom-of-two and her husband, Derick Dillard, have become increasingly estranged from the rest of the Duggar family over the years as they continue to revolt against the strict rules of the family’s church.

    Jill and her husband Derick have engaged in behaviors such as drinking and sending their children to public school.

    And the couple has even spoken publicly about their sex life, emphasizing the divide between Jill and the rest of her family.

  • WHY DID FEDERAL AUTHORITIES RAID JOSH’S USED CAR DEALERSHIP?

    Josh Duggar’s arrest by federal authorities today is linked to a 2019 raid on his used car dealership in Springdale, Arkansas.

    In November 2019, Homeland Security Investigations conducted an “ongoing federal investigation” at the lot, but no charges were filed against Josh- until now.

    Josh’s car business, Wholesale Motorcars, in Springdale, Arkansas is listed on Google as “permanently closed.”

    No charges against Josh or the business were ever filed.

    In 2018, RadarOnline.com reported Josh was found in violation of an ordinance requiring his car business to have a permit.

    Josh was allegedly notified of the issue three times before he resolved the problem.

  • JOSH DUGGAR DENIES AN ALLEGED ASSAULT WITH PORN STAR

    In November 2015, porn star, Ashley Johnston, also known by her stage name Danica Dillon, accused Josh Duggar of sexually assaulting her.

    Johnston accused him in a lawsuit and interviews of choking, spitting and calling her “worthless” during rough intercourse. She eventually dropped the lawsuit, with Duggar always denying the allegations.

    She alleged that they met in March 2015, at a Philadelphia strip club, where she was then working and that Josh paid her $ 600 for lap dances before inviting her to his room.

    In a exclusive interview with The Sun, Johnston, 33, said she has always told the truth about the alleged assault, which she described as being so intense it felt “like this guy tried to kill me,” according to the lawsuit.

    Months before Johnston accused Duggar for sexually assaulting her, news broke that the Duggar had paid a Ashley Madison Account.

    The then 27-year-old paid an account on service that assists married people in having affairs.

    He admitted to cheating on his wife and to being addicted to porn.

  • JOSH REPORTEDLY STRUGGLING TO SURVIVE

    Josh has found it hard to keep a stable job, and currently lives with Anna and his six kids in a warehouse on Jim Bob and Michelle’s Arkansas property, The Sun exclusively reported.

    A source said: “There’s no sign of him working and he only leaves when he drives the family out in a blue minivan.

    “He pulled the short straw with his living arrangements, too. His brother Joseph and his wife Kendra’s log cabin is picturesque and impressive while Josh’s warehouse doesn’t look like the most welcoming of places.”

  • JOSH MOVES ON POST SCANDAL

    After 19 Kids and Counting was cancelled and Josh Duggar was fired from his position at Christian lobbying group the Family Research Council, the shamed reality star continued to attract negative headlines.

    Just three months after the 2015 report surfaced of his alleged molestation of five girls, it surfaced that Josh was using adultery dating service Ashley Madison.

    Josh said in a statement: “I have been the biggest hypocrite ever. While espousing faith and family values, I have secretly over the last several years been viewing pornography on the Internet and this has become a secret addiction and I became unfaithful to my wife.”

    Soon after, porn star Danica Dillon, whose real name is Ashley Johnston, claimed he assaulted her during a sexual encounter.

    In a 2020 interview with The Sun, Ashley, 33, described the alleged incident as being so intense “it felt like this guy tried to kill me.”

    Ashley, now a married mom of four, said Josh “knows what he’s done and has to live with his demons.”

    Josh has always denied the alleged assault.

  • JIM BOB AND MICHELLE DUGGAR COME CLEAN ABOUT JOSH’S ACTIONS

    Patriarch and Matriarch of the 19 Duggar kids, Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, came clean in 2015 when the scandal first broke of their eldest son Josh allegedly molesting several girls as a teen.

    When an InTouch report broke the scandal, the two parents went to hte police to discuss their son’s actions.

    “Back 12 years ago our family went through one of the most difficult times of our lives,” they said in 2015.

    “When Josh was a young teenager, he made some very bad mistakes and we were shocked. We had tried to teach him right from wrong.

    “That dark and difficult time caused us to seek God like never before. Even though we would never choose to go through something so terrible, each one of our family members drew closer to God.”

    Outside of the show getting canceled, Josh was fired from his position at Christian lobbying group the Family Research Council.

  • JOSH DUGGAR’S WIFE ANNA PREGNANT WITH SEVENTH CHILD AS JOSH IS ARRESTED

    While the whole Duggar family is praying for Josh’s speedy release from bars, the arrest could not have come at a worse time for his wife Anna, who is pregnant with the couple’s seventh child.

    Anna, 32, and the Duggar family previously stood by Josh through his disturbing sex abuse scandal in 2015.

    Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, Josh’s parents, apparently came clean to the police in 2015 and said their eldest son fondled the breasts and genitals of young girls while they were asleep in the Duggar family home back in 2002.

    Their show, 19 Kids & Counting, was canceled after the scandal broke.

    Kim didn’t stay blonde for long though, sharing a selfie not long after the shoot where her hair and brows were back to dark.

    “I’m back to dark already, don’t worry,” the mother-of-four reassured fans.

    Kim’s edgy shoot comes just one day after her estranged husband Kanye West was spotted still wearing his wedding ring.

    The Yeezy mogul, 43, flashed his wedding band on his left hand while listening to DJ Khaled’s new album at the producer’s home.

    Kanye was previously seen wearing the ring in February while out in Los Angeles.

    Kim filed for divorce in February after six years of marriage and months of speculation that the relationship had broken down.

    The exes have four children together – North, seven, Saint, five, Chicago, three and Psalm, one.

    According to TMZ, Kanye filed for both joint legal and physical custody of their four children.

    The pair has decided to co-parent amicably, despite Kanye spending the majority of his time on his Wyoming compound, a thousand miles away from Kim’s LA home.

    The celebrity couple has agreed they will split their $ 2billion fortune evenly, which The Sun exclusively reported after the divorce announcement was made.

    Due to his music empire and clothing ventures, Kanye is technically the richer of the two, with a staggering $ 1.3billion fortune.

    Kim has been linked to a number of men since they officially separated, including CNN reporter Van Jones.

    The KUWTK star and Van, who is best known in the UK for crying on television when Joe Biden won the US election, have known each other for years.

    The friends worked together on criminal justice reform, helping to free Alice Johnson from jail in 2018 after she was jailed for life for a first-time drug offense.

    The SKIMS founder has also been linked to Colombian singer Maluma after they were spotted at a Miami party and rapper Drake.

    Mr Clarke – who fiercely denies the claims – liked the tweet posted on April 1, which said: “Learn from your mistakes. That’s what they’re there for.”

    The Guardian reports the allegations against the married actor relate to a period between 2004 and 2019.

    Mr Clarke had been made aware of the allegations before he appeared onstage at the Royal Albert Hall to collect his Bafta for Outstanding British Contribution to Cinema on April 10.

    The awards committee had also been alerted 13 days before the ceremony – but said it was provided with “no evidence” that would allow it to investigate.

    Numerous women are reported to have broken their silence after the ceremony. They allege Mr Clarke is a serial abuser and uses his power to prey on and harass female colleagues.

    Last night the awards committee suspended Mr Clarke’s Bafta.

    Mr Clarke said in a statement to the Guardian: “In a 20-year career, I have put inclusivity and diversity at the forefront of my work and never had a complaint made against me.

    “If anyone who has worked with me has ever felt uncomfortable or disrespected, I sincerely apologise.

    “I vehemently deny any sexual misconduct or wrongdoing and intend to defend myself against these false allegations.”

    What films and TV series has Noel Clarke been in?

    Noel Clarke is one of the UK’s best-known actors, although he’s also a screenwriter, director and comic book writer

    He first rose to fame playing Mickey Smith in Dr Who between 2005 and 2010.

    In 2006, he took on his break-out film role as Sam in Kidulthood. The movie was followed by 2008’s Adulthood and 2016’s Brotherhood, which he also wrote and directed.

    Jo has said the group – including Bradley McIntosh, Hannah Spearritt, Jon Lee, Paul Cattermole, Rachel Stevens and Tina Barrett – are all on good terms and are in talks to hit the studio.

    Asked by Bobby Norris and Stephen Leng on FUBAR Radio about a reunion, the Reach singer said: “I think I’d be up for it. Yeah. When the time, if the timing’s right. Because obviously getting seven diaries together to sort of like, it’s tough because you know, few of us have got children and people are married and got other careers going on.

    “So timing is always a big, massive, it has a big part to play in it. Definitely. But you never know, could be reaching again one day.”

    However, Jo insisted they don’t have an “S Club WhatsApp group” where they talk about reuniting.

    She added: “There’s not an S Club WhatsApp group. It would be going like, ‘Ping, ping ping’ all the time. But do you know what? There’s no, there’s nothing set in stone. There’s been no meetings or anything like that. I mean I’d say, I’d never say never to it. You just, you never know what’s around the corner. But who knows, that’s all I’m saying.”

    However Jo is working on her solo comeback after she released her debut solo album Relentless back in 2005.

    When asked what made her return to music now, she said: “It’s now or never, really. Because I’m sort of like, getting older. And also if I hadn’t took the opportunity and done it, I would have been just thinking to myself, ‘Oh, I wonder if I’d given it a go, what might’ve been’.

    “And I just thought, ‘You just got to go for opportunities when they’re handed to you’. So I’ve just gone for it. And I’m so pleased I did because I feel so good at the minute. I’m feeling very positive.

    “I mean, obviously I’m so excited because I think to get a record deal, like it’s really quite lucky, really. But I am, I’m very excited, but I am nervous, yeah. Because it’s been 16 years since I put my first solo album out there. It’s a long time.”

    ACTOR Louis Partridge looks so convincing as Sex Pistol Sid Vicious you’d be forgiven for thinking the musician’s death was a Great Rock ’N’ Roll Swindle.

    Louis, 17, plays the bassist in Danny Boyle’s new six-part drama about the punk band.

    He was filming in Deal, Kent, with Emma Appleton who plays Sid’s girlfriend Nancy Spungen.

    Jacob Slater portrays Paul Cook, Anson Boon takes on Johnny Rotten and Toby Wallace kits up as Steve Jones.

    They were filming in a theatre which staged the band’s last performance for the children of striking firefighters.

    Based on the memoir of Sex Pistol bassist Steve Jones, Danny Boyle has described the Sex Pistols emergence in the mid-70s as the moment that British society and culture changed for ever.

    But Johnny Rotten himself isn’t so sweet on the film – who branded the biopic “disrespectful s**t” amid threats to take legal action against its production.

    Her current abode features floor-to-ceiling windows which fills the modern space with natural light.

    She has elevated the flat with structured grey chairs and a navy blue velvet couch while chic prints line the walls.

    Last month, we revealed that the footballer was buying a £2 million pad with Taylor just a year after they began dating and are have employed Dawn’s high-end interior design firm Arista to do the place up.

    A pal told us: “It seems like a big step so soon into their relationship but if you ignore the price tag it is just a case of two people in love buying a place together.

    “Dawn and Ashley are very pleased for them, and Dawn is overseeing the renovations herself to make sure the new flat is totally amazing in every way.”

    The £200,000-a-week dad-of-two and Taylor had started dating last year after he split with wife Rita.

    Amy has a life-limiting lung condition called idopathic pulmonary fibrosis and would be at high risk of serious illness if she was to contract coronavirus.

    Katie’s fans noted the similarities between the two and showered Amy with compliments.

    One wrote: “Beautiful ❤️ you are your mums double.”

    A third said: “You got your looks from her!”

    Back in February Katie revealed Amy only had 32 per cent lung capacity and doesn’t have long left to live.

    The businesswoman appeared on Northen Ireland’s Nolan Live and revealed her mum’s condition had deteriorated.

    Amy, 64, is holding out hope for a lung transplant to prolong her life.

    Katie said: “Now she’s on oxygen, it’s hit home again. She’s only got like 32 per cent left of her lung capacity. So if you imagine now being that out of breath, it must be awful, and it’s an awful way to go.

    “It’s horrible to see my mum go through it because she’s so active, it’s cruel.”

    The mum-of-five said Amy turned to the British Lung Foundation for support and advice and was told to make the most of the time she has left.

    Katie continued: “Just build memories, take lots of pictures, that’s all you can do really. You know it’s coming and have to learn to deal with it.”

    Amy also opened up about the grim reality of her health condition as she was unable to see her family due to Covid.

    She appeared on Good Morning Britain via Zoom alongside Katie from their respective homes, telling hosts Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid that she has “no hope” of surviving if she catches Covid or even a cold.

    “I’m very up and down really, to be honest with you,” said Amy. “Obviously it’s terminal and I should imagine I’m in the last couple of years now.

    “What with Covid and everything, if I catch a cold or Covid there’s just no hope, so that would be the end of it for me.

    “But positively, I’m hoping, I’m pushing to see if I can get on the transplant list.

    “Because there is no cure there’s nothing else they can do for me really, it’s just palliative care, they’re just trying to keep me comfortable.”

    Amy then admitted that even if she did get a transplant there was not much chance of it being successful because of her age.

    “My age is against me and the results are not that good as you get older and you could die in the operating theatre, you could reject (the donated organ)… and if you can get through all of that, you would have a better quality of life and maybe live another two or three years,” she explained.

    The grandmother also revealed “it was somewhat of a relief” that she has not seen Katie or much of her family in real life for months.

    “I haven’t seen Kate since October, since my birthday, but we’re a lot more closer because we make an effort to keep in contact with Zoom,” Amy said.

    What is Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF)?

    Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is a condition in which the lungs become scarred and breathing becomes increasingly difficult.

    It’s not clear what causes it, but it usually affects people who are around 70 to 75 years old, and is rare in people under 50.

    Several treatments can help reduce the rate at which IPF gets worse, but there’s currently no treatment that can stop or reverse the scarring of the lungs.

    The symptoms of IPF tend to develop gradually and get slowly worse over time.

    Symptoms include shortness of breath, a persistent dry cough, tiredness, loss of appetite and weight loss, rounded and swollen fingertips.

    Britney Spears latest – Star will finally reveal extent of anger

    Author: Hana Carter
    This post originally appeared on Showbiz – The Scottish Sun

    BRITNEY Spears is set to break her silence on her conservatorship and speak in court about it for the first time.

    The superstar singer’s dad currently controls huge amounts of his daughter’s life and Britney isn’t even allowed to manage her own finances.

    The conservatorship was introduced more than a decade ago during Britney’s well-publicised mental health battles – but she is long considered to be functioning at a level that allows her to retake control of her life.

    But as the recent Framing Britney documentary explained, a person living under a conservatorship cannot declare themselves fit – it is down to those placed in charge of their life to relinquish the control.

    In Britney’s case, fans have accused her dad Jamie Spears of refusing to do that in order to essentially keep her under his control and use her starpower as his own personal cash cow.

    The claims have led to the #FreeBritney movement, which has grown around the world, although Britney herself has always been reluctant to discuss the matter in public.

    Now that’s changed with Britney reportedly requesting to address a court directly to discuss reclaiming control of her life,

    According to CNN, the singer’s attorney Samuel D. Ingham III told a Los Angeles Superior Court yesterday “Britney wants to address the court directly,” adding she would like it to happen within the next month.

      Britney Spears’ mom Lynne slammed her ex-husband Jamie’s “excessive” $ 890k request of the star’s money in her conservatorship case.

      Lynne’s lawyer made it clear how she feels about Jamie’s request in a filing.

      The mother’s attorney, Gladstone N. Jones, III, filed papers on Monday objecting to legal fees spent by Jamie, as she claimed they are “utterly excessive” and “served no benefit to” the 39-year-old singer.

      According to Yahoo, Lynne’s objection calls for “fees and expenses charged for certain services provided by H&K” to be “examined” by the judge in private.

      If the services “are determined to be improper or excessive,” Lynne has asked for them to be stricken from the bill or reimbursed to Britney’s estate if they had already been paid.
