Britney Spears’ mental state has been compared to that of a comatose patient by her lawyer, according to reports.

The Toxic singer, 38, is said to be unable to sign a sworn declaration in her conservatorship case in a hearing on Wednesday 7 October.

It was claimed Britney doesn’t want to perform again, after cancelling her Las Vegas residency last year, but her father Jamie, 68, is said to be pushing for her to continue to record and perform music.

During the hearing, according to TMZ, the judge asked questions about Britney wanting a co-conservator of her estate, to work alongside her father Jamie, who is her named trustee.

Britney’s lawyer Sam Ingham was then asked if Britney would sign a declaration to give a first-hand account of her feelings.

But, her legal representative said she lacked the capacity to sign a declaration and reportedly then compared her to a patient in a coma.

The lawyer insisted she isn’t comatose by any means but was using it as an example to show she is not capable of signing a legal document and insisted comatose patients have their lawyers speak for them.

The judge then set a later date to address the issues raised.


Meanwhile, Britney, who recently revealed how she “really” looks, has since posted a video to reflect on her summer on her Instagram page.

As she stood in front of a white background and wore a white top, she told her 26.5million followers: “OK, so yesterday I felt like it was the beginning of fall. I pulled out all my jackets and then the next day it was really hot, it was really confusing.

“Anyhow, this summer has been so much fun for me. I’ve learned so much, I’ve laughed so much, I swam so much.

“But, the most important thing that I did learn was that life has so many spontaneous gifts at each moment. Sometimes we need to slow down and learn to embrace them all.

“Anyways, I hope your summer was as good as mine and god bless you all.”

The clip received more than two million views from fans, while some shared their concern over Britney’s welfare in the comments.

One said: “Yeah her management probably made her say this, this is clearly scripted. Hope you're okay Brit, love you.”

Anther added: “her voice is shaking & it seems like she's reading off a teleprompter or something of that”.

As a third wrote: “Brit you look like your haven’t slept for days but trying to look and sound like you are in good spirits and full of energy”.
