Britney Spears alleges her Father Drugged her and Forced her to be on Birth Control in a recent Conservatorship Hearing

Britney Spears has spoken out against her conservatorship at a court hearing in Los Angeles, where she alleged that her dad drugged her and forced her to be on birth control against her will. Speaking in open court for the first time in the case, the American singer, 37, said her father Jamie Spears controlled her "100,000%," but wants her life back. "I am traumatised," she said, speaking remotely. "I just want my life back." During the hearing, fans outside held placards reading Free Britney and demanding the ruling be axed.

England’s Key Decisions ahead of Croatia Euro 2020 Clash

Gareth Southgate will have breathed a sigh of relief when the full-time whistle in Sunday's 1-0 win over Romania meant his England side had come through their final warm-up game unscathed. A full bill of health was the ultimate priority after losing Trent Alexander-Arnold last time out - but the fitness of Jordan Henderson and Harry Maguire looks set to remain a major talking point at this tournament. Henderson made his long-awaited return to action as a half-time substitute and, while there were some signs of rustiness on the ball, he played the pass which led to the second penalty and appeared to come through the run-out in good shape - although his over-eagerness to make his mark by taking the penalty off Dominic Calvert-Lewin was a bad call. The Croatia game is almost cert...
