Moscow/Sputnik: US signer Britney Spears, who has charmed audience by singing some memorable songs, has asked a court to put an end to the 13-year long conservatorship by her father James Spears.

On Wednesday, Spears gave a more than 20-minute emotional speech to the court, trying to persuade the judge, Brenda Penny, of the need to lift the conservatorship.

"Ma'am, I've worked since I was 17 years old. I can't go somewhere unless I meet someone every week in an office. I truly believe this conservatorship is abusive, but ma'am there are a thousand conservatorships that are abusive as well. I want to end the conservatorship," the singer said, as quoted by the CNN broadcaster.

The judge has not made any decision on the issue yet.

Spears, who was one of the most famous world singers at the beginning of the 21st century faced mental issues as well as drug and alcohol addictions following a divorce in the late 2000s. In 2008, she was placed under temporary conservatorship, which later turned termless.
