Modern Divorce: The 'Free Britney' movement
Pop artist Britney Spears, at 39, is still not in charge of her own life. The #FreeBritney movement, spurred further by a New York Times documentary airing on Hulu, looks at why she is still enduring a court-sanctioned conservatorship managed by her father, and whether her adult rights are being unfairly or criminally curtailed.
In this fascinating episode of the Modern Divorce podcast, family law attorneys Billie Tarascio and Darin Colburn of Modern Law break down the areas that make them suspicious of - even angry at - these arrangements, and how they'd approach the situation as attorneys. In fact, the conservatorship, and her father's behavior, has been used against her, to limit her time with her own children.
For anyone who is following the #FreeBritney movement, or is interested in the effects of conservatorships in family law, this is a must-listen.
