On Wednesday, Britney spoke for the first time in court amid the years-long battle.

The Sun can exclusively report that a number of her lucky fans were allowed into the main court room and overflow room.

Members of Britney’s loyal fanbase were seen praying with their heads in their hands.

According to an eyewitness, the another person was nervously crossing her fingers minutes leading up to the beginning of the court matter.

Early on in the hearing, Britney introduced herself when she was asked to state her name.

The Womanizer singer responded: “Oh me? Britney Spears."

Britney and her family- including Jamie and mother Lynne- are appearing at the hearing via remote audio only instead of video.

In addition to the singer’s fan, there are a few officers from Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Office in attendance that are keeping guard in both rooms.

During the hearing, Britney is expected to argue against the conservatorship, which was implemented in 2008 after a series of public meltdowns by the singer.

The legal agreement prevents Britney from controlling her life or having any access to her million-dollar fortune.

The hearing got off to a rocky start, as technical difficulties forced the event to start late.

A number of fans took to Twitter to express their disappointment over the delay.

However, someone present in court claimed he heard Britney whisper "it's not technical difficulties."

Before Britney headed to court on Wednesday, her boyfriend Sam Asghari showed his support for the singer with a “Free Britney” T-shirt.

Sam made sure to support his girlfriend on the momentous day with a T-shirt referencing the campaign fans started in the singer's honor.

Fans are convinced Britney has long wanted to be freed from her father's conservatorship, as they launched the #FreeBritney campaign and have had online and in-person events for it.

Sam, 27, posted a photo of himself wearing a shirt with the campaign name on it on his Instagram Story just ahead of Britney's court appearance.

Under the conservatorship, her life and her multi-million-dollar fortune have been under the supervision of Jamie.

Back in April 2021, Page Six reported that her attorney, Sam Ingham III, sought permission from Judge Brenda Penny to give Spears a chance to talk.

He told the judge: “The conservatee has requested that I seek from the court a status hearing at which she can address the court directly.”

Adding: “My client asked that it be done on expedited basis.”

In the days leading up to her court showdown with her father, Britney has been on a tropical getaway with Sam.

Britney proclaimed she was "living each day like it's her last" on her recent trip to Hawaii.

A few days ago, the singer took to Instagram to update fans on the future of her performance career, saying she has "no idea" if she will perform again.

Last month,  Britney clapped back at an overload of documentaries that have surfaced regarding her father's involvement in her finances and life choices, following the release of the new BBC documentary.

She'd previously admitted that she "cried for two weeks and feels embarrassed and insulted" after the release of the documentary Framing Britney Spears.
