Professor of Psychology and Molly Mason Jones Chair in Psychology Stacey Wood spoke to the Los Angeles Times about the renewed turmoil surrounding Britney Spears’s conservatorship. Using the hashtag #FreeBritney, some of Spears’s fans have questioned whether the conservatorship continues to serve the pop star’s best interests. “I imagine a person with that kind of wealth would be attracting a lot of people toward them, many of whom may not have their best interest in mind,” said Wood, who’s also an expert witness in probate conservatorship cases. “This could protect them from that.”
