Nadia Sawalha has revealed that she’s been left feeling ‘disturbed’ by Britney Spears’ conservatorship confessions.
The Loose Women star admitted that she found the manner in which the pop star has been treated by her family as ‘horrific and ‘backward’.
It comes after the 39-year-old popstar addressed a court in Los Angeles about the management of her conservatorship on Thursday.
In a leaked audio recording of the court hearing, the songstress seemed to fight back tears as she read out a lengthy statement in which she recalled the ordeal she has been living through since 2008.
The 23-minute-long testimony included Britney revealing that she had been put on lithium medication that made her feel drunk, was banned from getting married and was forced to remain on contraception against her will.

“God help any woman that comes forward with any mental health issues. Imagine how they are feeling today if this sort of thing can happen.

“I’m not sure the same thing could happen in this country. But it’s as if she’s been sectioned in her own home.”
During her testimony Britney revealed that while under the conservatorship, she's unable to fulfil her dream of getting married and having children as she's been put on contraception by her 'team.'
Britney spoke directly to Superior Judge Brenda Penny about her life under the restrictions of the conservatorship, which have seen tight controls put over her finances and affairs since 2008.
