"I know what she wants but at the end of the day, what is the reality of that?"
Britney Spears' brother, Bryan Spears, opened up about his famous sibling's conservatorship on Thursday.
During a guest appearance on the podcast, "As NOT Seen on TV," Bryan spoke about how their father, Jamie Spears, took over Britney's financial and personal affairs in 2008 after she was placed under psychiatric hold for evaluation.
"She's been in this thing for quite some time now," Bryan explained. "Obviously there was a need for it in the beginning. Now they've made some changes and all we can do is hope for the best."
After almost 12 years, Britney is still legally under a conservatorship, but Bryan suggested the "Toxic" singer might be looking to change the status.
"She's always wanted to get out of it. It's very frustrating to have," he continued. "Whether someone's coming in peace to help or they're coming in with an attitude, having someone constantly tell you to do something has got to be frustrating. She's wanted to get out of it for quite some time."
Ending the conservatorship would include Britney becoming self-sufficient, which Bryan said might be a challenge as she has "been surrounded by a team of people since she was 15."
"So at what level does everyone just walk away or at what level does that get reduced?" he added. "I know what she wants but at the end of the day, what is the reality of that?"
