The Times' report comes as Spears is expected to address the court "directly" on Wednesday during a hearing regarding the status of her conservatorship.

Last summer, she made it known though that she is "strongly opposed" to having her father, Jamie - who stepped down from his role of overseeing her conservatorship in 2019 after more than a decade in the role - return as the sole conservator of her affairs and finances.

Spears said she "strongly prefers" that Jodi Montgomery, the licensed conservator who took over Jamie's post in 2019, "continue in that role as [she] has done for nearly a year," according to court documents.

During a public hearing last November, Judge Brenda Penny declined Spears' request to suspend Jamie from his role.
