Britney Spears has appeared at a Los Angeles court to address the conservatorship she has been under for the past 11 years. Reporters and onlookers were removed from the courtroom and the hearing was closed.
A judge Wednesday, May 8, 2019, ordered the man, 44-year-old Sam Lutfi, to stay at least 200 yards from Spears, her parents and her sons.
Spears' ex-husband Kevin Federline has custody of their boys, 13-year-old Sean and 12-year-old Jayden, who have frequent visits with their mother. The insider added that Britney asked for certain freedoms under her conservatorship, but the judge didn't grant that request.
Lutfi sued the Spears family in 2009, alleging Britney Spears had breached a contract with him, Jamie Spears had punched him and Lynne Spears had defamed him in a memoir.
Penny agreed, and Spears and her parents were sneaked in through side doors when the court was empty.
The elder Spears also serves as his daughter's conservator.
Fans of the superstar were pictured outside court protesting to "set her free".
Sources told PEOPLE the singer, who entered through the building's back entrance with her mother, Lynne Spears, looked "comfortable, happy and glowing", despite the presence of #FreeBritney protesters in the courtyard.
The move came not long after Spears announced she was stepping away from her career because her father, Jamie Spears, was having health issues.

Lynne Spears filled legal paperwork this week in an effort to have her attorney included in a forthcoming hearing about the singer's care.
The status hearing was continued until September 18.

"Shortly after Ms. Spears checked herself into a mental health facility, Lutfi began a new campaign of harassment against Ms. Spears and her family".
Spears alleged that Lutfi had been sending harassing and threatening texts to Spears' family, disparaging them on social media and seeking to undermine her conservatorship.
Lutfi's attorney, Marc S. Gans, said in a statement to CNN that he and his client were disappointed that the restraining order had been granted.
