Britney Spears recently called out her previous management for allegedly pressuring her with contracts she didn’t want to sign while on tour in Las Vegas.
During her virtual court appearance, the singer was reported as stating, according to the New York Times,“The people who did that to me should not be able to walk away so easily. I’ll recap. I was on tour in 2018. I was forced to do… My management said if I don’t do this tour, I will have to find an attorney —”
The singer even went on to detail the entire ordeal in front of her judge and added, “The people who did this to me should not be able to walk away so easily. To recap: I was on tour in 2018. I was forced to do… My management said if I don’t do this tour, I will have to find an attorney, and by contract my own management could sue me if I didn’t follow through with the tour.”
“He handed me a sheet of paper as I got off the stage in Vegas and said I had to sign it. It was very threatening and scary. And with the conservator ship, I couldn’t even get my own attorney. So out of fear, I went ahead and I did the tour.”
“When I came off that tour, a new show in Las Vegas was supposed to take place. I started rehearsing early, but it was hard because I’d been doing Vegas for four years and I needed a break in between. But no, I was told this is the timeline and this is how it’s going to go.”
She concluded by saying, “It’s funny to hear my managers’ side of the story. They all said I wasn’t participating in rehearsals and I never agreed to take my medication — my medication is only taken in the mornings, never at rehearsal. They don’t even see me. So why are they even claiming that?”
