According to CNN, the singer’s attorney Samuel D. Ingham III spoke at a hearing Tuesday at Los Angeles Superior Court.
He stated: “Britney wants to address the court directly,”
The attorney added that Britney would like it to happen within the next month.
The outlet reported that the upcoming hearing will take place on June 23.
Back in March, Britney asked a judge to permanently end Jamie’s control over her $60m fortune and personal life.
The singer’s attorney filed for Jodi Montgomery to officially replace her father as the permanent conservator over Britney’s personal matters.
She also asked her father to resign from his role overseeing her personal life.
The legal documents also stated that Britney reserves the right to eventually request an end to the conservatorship completely.
Under the terms of the long-running conservatorship, the Toxic singer isn’t allowed to drive, go out by herself or make any significant personal or financial decisions.
While sources have said Britney’s life “would drastically change for the better” if Jamie is removed, the father’s lawyer Vivian Thoreen previously claimed the conservatorship “saved” the singer’s life.
“I understand that every story needs a villain,” the attorney previously said. “But people have it so wrong here.”
“This is a story about a fiercely loving, dedicated and loyal father who rescued his daughter from a life threatening situation.
“People were harming her and they were exploiting her. Jamie saved Britney’s life,” she told Good Morning America‘s Amy Robach.
