Britney's New Command Performance

4/10/2009 8:03 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Britney Spears will be appearing in a Los Angeles arena and, if a certain lawyer has it his way, an L.A. County courtroom.

Jon Eardley, Esq., the lawyer who claims Britney hired him to torpedo her conservatorship, has just filed legal papers demanding that Brit appear at a trial in which Eardley has been accused of harassing Britney and her family.

In his legal papers, Eardley notes that Britney will be performing at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on April 16 and 17. He says if she's well enough to perform, she's well enough to testify on two points -- did she authorize Eardley to take legal action on her behalf and did Eardley really cause her "substantial emotional distress."

The judge will have to decide if Britney is competent enough to testify and if it's fair to drag her into court. It would certainly be entertaining.

You gotta be kidding me...    

Here's the funny thing: if SLUTney is judged not competent to testify at the trial, then WTF are all those stupid SLUTney fans thinking, buying tickets to a fake concert lip synched by an INCOMPETENT MORON?

Just proves that SLUTney & her idiot fans deserve each other. Dumbasses of a feather stick together...

BIGTIME, you are so stupid. You sound like a very bitter person with problems.

The point of this story is that consevatorships are very rare in the real world, outside of the crazy situation that Britney is in. They are reserved for people who are in vegetative states or who have already been declared permanently disabled by SSI or private disability insurance, and in ADDITION to being permanently disabled, are not mentally competent to make decisions for themselves about basic care, not about shopping choices or friend choices. It is very bizarre (when compared to how consevatorships are used in the real world) that Britney is under the conservatorship, without making any judgment about it being a good or bad thing for her. So, the question is how can a person who can perform on stage (not something a person who in incompetent should be capable of doing) not be able to answer simple questions?

Despite the conservatorship having many positive benefits for Britney, legally, it is very strange, and its existence is no doubt highly dependent on local LA politics and money. It is a legitimate issue, and you are so stupid you've twisted the point of the story into a pretzel. The question is not why do people want to see an "incompetent singer", the point is that a person who is performing is surely not incompetent by the standards courts ususally use to determine competence.

I said it    

BIGTIME, I think that you need to be under a consevatorship. It sounds like if you have a lot of mental issues and possibly may have suffered some type of brain damage.
If you don`t like Britney then don`t read about her. She is doing so much better now and she does not need people like you writting crap about her.

Should be easy for the judge to find her incompetent. Britney is mentally ill and will be forever. Medications may control the symptoms but for how long???

If she can perform and "record" (i.e., stand there while electronics dub her voice) and make millions of dollars, then her dumb ass can show up in court for 15 minutes.

Who are the stupid idiots who buy her music and go to her concerts? Jesus people, get a clue!

Party 'till you die!    

After all this whining and bitching, I hope that she actually gets her freedom! She will immediately run loose again and seek out all the douchebags from her past! If someone is so bound and determined to destroy themselves through their own stupidity, I say let them! Let her be an annotation in the Darwin Awards if she's so damned determined!

The reason the Spears Machine mainly fears her testifying is because she is a complete idiot without a shred of common sense! Period!

Why is #7 on this site if he/she hates Britney so much? No life? Apparently.

So what? You think this is now a Britney tribute site? Sorry, this is a public blog and there are a hell of a lot more opinions than what the fans just want to hear! And if you cannot handle that reality, then you should go to a fan site and blab there! Better hurry though! Those sites are dropping like flies now!
