Britney Spears left court in Los Angeles barefoot on Friday after arriving alongside mother who is reportedly trying to obtain her daughter’s medical files and treatment plan from her conservator dad Jamie.
The 37-year-old singer was said to be holding hands with Lynne Spears, who wants to look at the records because her daughter is ‘not doing well’, according to
Pictures showed the star leaving court completely barefoot in a red skirt and black top after the private hearing which was held behind closed doors because her medical condition was discussed.
Fans of the superstar were pictured outside court protesting to ‘set her free’ and her sister Jamie Lynn posted an image of her sibling on Instagram with a star emoji.
Britney’s father Jamie has been the star’s sole conservator for the past 11 years, which means he is currently the only person who can look at those files.
The site added that Lynne does not want to become her daughter’s co-conservator but Britney is said to be siding with her mother in court because she reportedly ‘she wants freedom’.
And it has been claimed that she is hoping her mother will ‘ease the restrictions’.

‘Lynne does not want to become a co-conservator, which creates a weird legal argument … the right to medical information but no right to act on it,’ a source told the site.
Spears appeared in court at her own request to speak to a judge who oversees the conservatorship that has controlled her affairs for 11 years.
Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Brenda Penny cleared the courtroom Friday of all members of the public and media before Spears appeared, so only those involved in the case know what she said.
When the doors re-opened, the courtroom was empty, and Penny has issued no ruling or statement on Spears’ case.
Spears was brought in and out of the courthouse via backdoors and side entrances, and only a few determined fans and passers-by caught glimpses of her.
The singer doesn’t normally attend hearings on her conservatorship, which gives her father, Jamie Spears, and various lawyers power over much of her life.
Britney and Lynne were estranged for almost 15 years, but they have grown closer recently.
What is a conservator?
Under Californian law a conservatorship is a court case where a judge appoints a responsible person, the conservator, to care for another adult, the conservatee.
That person is said to not be able to care for himself or herself or manage his or her own finances.
In appointing a conservator, the court is said to be guided by the best interests of the conservatee with the selection up to a judge.
It is usually a permanent arrangement.
‘Over the last few months, Lynne has tried to reestablish a relationship,’ the TMZ source added.
Britney was granted a temporary restraining order Wednesday against a former confidante who she says has been harassing her family again.
A judge ordered 44-year-old Sam Lutfi, who has been in legal fights with the Spears family for a decade, to stay at least 200 yards from her, her parents and her two sons, who are 12 and 13.
The judge also ordered that he not contact or disparage anyone from the family.
The restraining order petition alleges Lutfi has been sending harassing and threatening texts to Spears’ family and disparaging them on social media.
Lutfi was a major presence in Spears’ life at the height of her fame, and had claimed he was her manager in the years leading up to a public meltdown in 2008.

‘Britney is making bad decisions and it’s a problem’: The Mississippi-born matriarch wants to step in and manage the ‘dire’ situation since Britney’s conservator father Jamie (L, pictured in 2015) is too ill
Her troubles led to the establishment of a court-ordered conservatorship, which allowed her father, Jamie, and attorneys to run her affairs and remains in effect a decade later.
A judge ruled late Wednesday that a lawyer for Lynne could be part of Friday’s proceeding.
This week Lynne has been staying at Britney’s Thousand Oaks, California mansion.
Britney cut Lynne out of her life right after her breakup with Justin Timberlake, claimed a source.
Britney and Justin split in 2002 after three years together; he went on to date Cameron Diaz and is now married to Jessica Biel.
It’s been claimed that Lynne was worried about Britney after reading online she was forced to take certain drugs at a mental health facility for 30 days.

She has reportedly been diagnosed as bi-polar and according to webmd.com, finding the right balance of medications is tricky. It was added the formula has to be changed every few years. This is called maintenance therapy.
The medications usually used to treat bi-polar disorder are Olanzapine (Zyprexa), Quetiapine (Seroquel), Risperidone (Risperdal), Ariprazole (Abilify), Ziprasidone (Geodon) and Clozapine (Clozaril).
‘Britney is making bad decisions and it’s a problem,’ a source told TMZ. ‘Her meds stopped working and doctors have been unable to find the right combination of drugs.’
Earlier this week TMZ claimed the 64-year-old Mississippi-born matriarch wants to step because Jamie is ill. But sources have said Lynne is too lax.

The grandmother-of-five is said to be ‘way too permissive and just wants Britney to like her’ while her 66-year-old ex-husband has been trying to ‘provide structure and discipline.’
Spears has been under court-ordered permanent conservatorship of her father Jamie and attorney Andrew Wallet since being put on 5150 involuntary psychiatric hold in 2008.
