At the peak of her profession in 2007, American pop singer Britney Spears, who has bought over 150 million albums, started to point out off her psychological well being issues, over-drinking, chemical dependancy, aggressive conduct, amongst others. In 2008, after an hospitalization, her father, James Spears, determined to ask for a authorized curatela, which controls the life and profession of the singer.

It’s been greater than ten years and the topic has come to mild just lately when in a listening to on the curatela course of, Britney – now 39 – mentioned she lied when she informed the entire world that she was nicely or comfortable to speak in regards to the current posts on social media.

“I’ve been in denial, I’ve been in shock, I’m traumatized,” Britney mentioned. “I can’t sleep, I’m depressed, I cry every day.”

“It’s demoralizing everything I’ve been through. I never said that openly – I never thought anyone would believe me. I’m not lying. I just want my life back,” he mentioned.

The singer even has no management over her reproductive life. She cannot take out the IUD to attempt a being pregnant. This is as a result of curatela within the United States may be very completely different from Brazil.

Let’s assume the popstar was Brazilian. First, that the daddy, at first, couldn’t be his healer. Here in Brazil, justice, for circumstances equal to these of Britney, opts for an neutral skilled for this goal. Second, that the singer was recognized with partial incapacity, that’s, with the potential of restoration to hold out the actions of her civil life and this truth right here in our nation would not permit her to have her entire life managed and the best way she is being by her father.

Here, along with the medical report, she would undergo experience, the mom could be the primary to be heard, that’s, the method would take round a 12 months to be really determined.

Unlike the United States, which permits her father to take over the cash, right here, the quantity is deposited in a court docket account and the decide releases that cash till she has a return of her civilian capability.

In addition, between six months and one 12 months, the singer would endure reassessments to know her actual situation, whereas, in the identical interval, the curator would should be accountable to the decide, who would make all the selections. Not there, once you’re a healer, you possibly can merely stay the opposite individual’s life.

In the case of the popstar, the daddy has custody of his youngsters, chooses associates, marks exhibits, even there may be an incoherence on this query, since if the singer is partially incapable and has her entire life within the palms of the daddy, how can she do exhibits?

To query this angle, right here there may be the Public Prosecutor’ s Office, answerable for safeguarding and defending the rights of an incapacitated, however there may be not that means.

The singer has been attempting her freedom. The first request for elimination of curatela seems within the 2014 New York Times article. At the time, the attorneys introduced an inventory of the reason why Jamie would not have management over Britney’s life.

Two years later, in keeping with a court docket investigator in a report, Britney even said that she felt that “curatela became an oppressive and control tool over her.”

However, this case continues to be removed from over. Fans protest for the liberty of popstar, whereas in Brazil this curatela regime is taken into account abusive, as a result of right here there’s a concern for human dignity. Our regulation is interpretable, however it has a precept differentiated from many nations which is contradictory and broad protection. Given this comparability, do you assume Britney could be happier during which nation?
