The 'I'm a Slave 4 U' hitmaker has been invited by top politicians to plead her case to U.S. congress after her request to regain control of her life is denied by judge.

AceShowbiz - U.S. Congressman Matt Gaetz and other politicians have invited Britney Spears to testify in front of Congress about her conservatorship ordeal.

After hearing the pop star's emotional plea in a Los Angeles court last week to end the conservator arrangement, overseen by Spears' father Jamie since 2008, Republican congressman Matt Gaetz extended the invite.

On Wednesday (30Jun21), he and fellow Republican Congress members Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia, Burgess Owens of Utah and Andy Biggs of Arizona, sent the singer a letter expressing their "deep concern" and offered to help.

"The United States Congress should hear your story and be inspired to bipartisan action. What happened to you should never happen to any other American," the letter reads.

"Your life, liberty, and happiness have been taken from you. Please take advantage of the empowerment that public congressional testimony can unlock."

Gaetz, along with Ohio congressman Jim Jordan, had previously written a letter asking Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler to hold federal hearings about the singer's case.

Inspired by the "Framing Britney Spears" documentary, which premiered in February (21), Gaetz and Jordan wrote, "(It is) incumbent upon our Committee to convene a hearing to examine whether Americans are trapped unjustly in conservatorships."

An attorney for Britney's father issued the following statement in response, "Jamie Spears has diligently and professionally carried out his duties as one of Britney's conservators, and his love for his daughter and dedication to protecting her is clearly apparent to the court."

In the most recent development, a Los Angeles judge denied Britney's request to have her father removed as her conservator.

Meanwhile, Gaetz and Jordan are both embroiled in their own issues - Gaetz, a close ally of former President Donald Trump, is being investigated by the Justice Department for possible sex trafficking and statutory rape, and Jordan has been accused by more than 100 former Ohio State University students for doing nothing when he was advised the college's doctor was assaulting them.
