Britney Spears’ Lawyer Says She’s as Mentaly Fit as a Coma Patient

I never thought Britney Spears was a genius, but I also never thought she had the brain of a coma patient. Her lawyer apparently disagrees.

TMZ reports that Spears’ lawyer compared her to someone who was comatose in court when asked if she could submit a signed declaration of her wishes for her conservatorship.

The judge asked Ingham if Britney would sign a declaration so there’d be a first-hand account of her feelings. Ingham said Britney lacked the capacity to sign a declaration, and likened her to a comatose patient. He was not saying she is comatose by any means, but he used it by way of example to show she was not capable of signing a legal document. Ingham said even comatose patients can have their lawyers speak for them.

Now, I’m neither a lawyer nor a mental health practitioner, but as an opinion writer, I don’t buy it. If a family court judge can ask a six-year-old which parent they want to live with, then this judge can ask Britney what it is she wants.

Now, her lawyer should have her best interest in mind, and I have no evidence that he doesn’t or that he isn’t working on her behalf and for what she actually wants. But I also don’t think Britney’s capacity is that of a coma patient; I understand what he was saying, that it isn’t necessary for her to submit a declaration, but I also don’t understand what the issue would be with her submitting said declaration or being questioned by the judge directly.

The key issue here is that Spears’ lawyer has told the court she wants to be done performing and her father wants to tart her up and push her up on stage, which makes sense because I think how she got on The Mickey Mouse Club.
