Britney Spears believes her doctors ‘have failed her’ and doesn’t trust the medical teams she’s worked with so far in her ongoing conservatorship battle.

Spears made it clear in court that she would like her conservatorship to end without a mental health evaluation typically required.

‘She doesn’t have much trust for the doctors that she has worked with so far,’ sources told PEOPLE magazine. ‘She feels like they have failed her.’

Britney, 39, gave an emotional, 23-minute testimony during a hearing in a Los Angeles court on June 23 where she pleaded with Judge Brenda Penny for freedom. 

The last time Spears spoke directly to the judge was in May 2019, but the court was closed to the public and her testimony was sealed, and details of her mental health have never been disclosed. 

Britney has been under a court order for 13 years where her father, Jamie, has held the power over all of her personal and financial decisions following her multiple involuntary holds in psychiatric hospitals.  

‘I’m sorry for my ignorance, but I honestly didn’t know that. But honestly, but I don’t think I owe anyone to be evaluated. I’ve done more than enough. I don’t feel like I should even be in room with anyone to offend me by trying to question my capacity of intelligence, whether I need to be in this stupid conservatorship or not. I’ve done more than enough.’

Spears pleaded with the judge to re-evaluate the conservatorship she’s been under for 13 years, with dad Jamie at the helm of her $60million fortune. 

‘This conservatorship is doing me way more harm than good. I deserve to have a life, I’ve worked my whole life. I deserve to have a two to three-year break,’ she said. 

Since her shocking testimony, Britney’s court-appointed attorney, Sam Ingham, resigned on Tuesday after failing to file paperwork to end conservatorship. 

And just the day before, Britney’s longtime manager, Larry Rudolph, resigned saying he was no longer needed. 

The next court hearing is July 14, when lawyers for Jamie and the conservatorship ‘team’ will give evidence to prove Britney does want the court order in place.

In the shocking testimony, Britney admitted: ‘I’ve lied and told the whole world I’m OK and I’m happy. It’s a lie. I’ve been in denial. I’ve been in shock. I am traumatized. Fake it ’til you make it, but now I’m telling you the truth, OK? I’m not happy. I can’t sleep. I’m depressed. I cry every day.’ 

Spears said she did not feel she ‘was heard on any level’ the last time she was able to speak to the court in 2019.

‘I want changes and I want changes going forward,’ she said. ‘I deserve changes. I was told I have to sit down and be evaluated, again, if I want to end the conservatorship. Ma’am, I didn’t know I could petition the conservatorship to end it.’

And while there are some changes in the works for Spears’ management, her personal conservator, Jodi Montgomery, has no plans to leave Britney’s side.

‘She remains committed to steadfastly supporting Ms. Spears in every way she can within the scope of her duties as a conservator of the person,’ Montgomery’s lawyer Lauriann Wright told PEOPLE. ‘Ms. Spears as recently as yesterday has asked Ms. Montgomery to continue to serve. Ms. Montgomery will continue to serve as a conservator for as long as Ms. Spears and the Court desire her to do so.’
