Britney Spear’s former estate manager, Andrew Wallet, said the pop star needs to be protected from ‘undue influences’ and claimed ‘people lurking in the shadows’ are behind the Free Britney campaign, the
Daily Mail reported.
In an interview with the news outlet, Attorney Wallet said that people campaigning against the conservatorship ‘don’t have a clue’ on why the Toxic singer needs to be protected or about how the law works.
“Britney is in a conservatorship for good reason but a lot of the Free Britney people have no experience with the law. These legal proceedings are complex and people jump to conclusions.
“Their perception is so wrong but you can’t go and tell them why because a lot of it is confidential.
“You have a lot of people who don’t have a clue but meanwhile we can’t talk about it. It’s frustrating but it is what it is.”
Wallet told Daily Mail: “If Britney wasn’t a celebrity none of this stuff would get talked about. The most important question is whether the conservatorship is in her best interests.
“That’s what you always have to ask yourself and I absolutely still believe that the conservatorship is in her best interests.
“This movement on social media has definitely complicated matters. There are people lurking in the shadows pushing an agenda.
“I can’t say who but it is hurting Britney, she’s the only one who gets hurt by all this. I have my own theories and things are going to come out during discovery and the trial [to determine who gets appointed].
“There is a lot of criticism that is completely wrong.”
Wallet went on: “It is not in Britney’s best interests to be outside the conservatorship but there’s a lot of politics involved.
“Britney to this day does not have the capacity to sign documents and make decisions for herself.
“Protecting her assets is very important and for that the conservatorship has to stay in place because she is susceptible to undue influences.”
The attorney also claimed it is possible that the pop star could be kept in the conservatorship for life.
“The conservatorship isn’t in place to make her do things she doesn’t want to do. It’s in place to protect her. If she doesn’t want to work she doesn’t have to work. No one can force her,” Wallet said.
“I have had people in conservatorship who have got themselves right and it has been terminated but you don’t see that because they’re not people in the public eye.
“Other people can be in a conservatorship their whole lives.
“I’m not saying that’s going to be Britney but it could happen to her.”
