On Friday, Britney Spears made a rare court appearance with her parents. Since sensitive subjects were going to be discussed such as Spears’ medical records, her two sons, and her trade secrets the court room was cleared and closed off to the public.
Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Brenda Penny wrote in an order afterward that all had agreed on a “730 expert evaluation,” a process that is usually used to determine the mental health and competence of a parent in a divorce case.
It was not made clear who would be examined, and whether it would relate to Spears’ relationship to her two sons or her parents’ oversight of her.
#FreeBritney supporters waited outside the steps of the courthouse but Spears and her parents entered from a private entrance. Britney was also seen leaving the courthouse barefoot.
On Wednesday, Spears was also granted a temporary restraining order against Sam Lufti. He must remain 200 yards away from Britney and not make any “disparaging public statements” about Spears, her family, or anyone in her inner circle.
“In the last week alone, Mr. Lutfi has made dozens of disparaging and threatening comments on social media and in interviews,” says the recent filing against him. “He has sent threatening texts to Ms. Spears’ family, he has leaked confidential information, and is considering leaking more of Ms. Spears’ (actual and fabricated) private information.”
A court hearing for September 18th has been set to address the ongoing matter.
