Brittney Spears’ fall from grace: The latest on the controversial artist

Justice Pautz, Staff Writer

Britney Spears, the 39 year-old controversial figure, has been making headlines recently due to her personal and professional situation. The $59 million worth American singer-songwriter lives in Thousand Oaks, in Los Angeles, California. Spears lives with her current husband, Sam Asghari, 26, and partially sees her two sons, Sean Preston Federline (15) and Jayden James Federline (14).

Ashgari says about Spears, “I have always wanted nothing but the best for my better half, and will continue to support her following her dreams and creating the future she wants and deserves. I am thankful for all of the love and support she is receiving from her fans all over the world, and I am looking forward to a normal, amazing future together”. 

Her parents, Lynne Spears (Mother) and Jamie Spears (Father) play a big role in her life. After thirty years of marriage, in 2002 the couple decided to split. This could be the reason Spears behaves. 

 Back in 2007, Spears had a meltdown when she shaved her head and hit the paparazzi’s car with an umbrella, this was because she was tired of the paparazzi taking over her life and following her. She is still a controversial name today because of the “Free Brittany Movement”, which started because her father has control of her money and estate. 

Her dad has control over her and her money because when her meltdown happened, he thought she was unstable. Now he controls everything as if she is not able to herself. 

  Another incident in 2007 is when Spears lost custody of her children. Due to Spears unstable mental state, a judge granted Federline (ex-husband) full custody. In 2008, Spears was arrested after locking her and her son Jayden in a bathroom, who was only one year old at the time.

Selling over 100 million records throughout her career, she has put a halt on performing and putting out songs. Her last album was 5 years ago titled, “Glory.” 

Her manager, Larry Rudolph, said we will never see another performance from Spears. 

Rudolph said, “As the person who guides her career — based on the information I and all of the professionals who work with her are being told on a need-to-know basis — from what I have gathered it’s clear to me she should not be going back to do this Vegas residency, not in the near future and possibly never again.”

Britney Spears, age 25 at the time, was caught shaving her own head after her stylist asked multiple times, “are you sure?”. Frustrated with the amount of attention she was receiving, Spears hit a paparazzi’s car with an umbrella out of anger.
