Britney Spears is being honored May 22nd at the Billboard Music Awards with the Millennium Award and a mashup performance celebrating a career that has already spanned two decades. Meanwhile, her Las Vegas Residency at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino has been extended with a $35 million deal for the next two years, and she has a new album on the way. In her spare time, a smiling Spears can be seen flaunting her fit body on Instagram and posing with her two sons—Sean Preston and Jayden James.

From her gleeful social media posts and booming career it’s easy to forget that the 34-year-old mother of two still doesn’t control most aspects of her life. She has been under a court-ordered conservatorship since 2008 which stemmed from an undisclosed mental illness and substance abuse in 2007. Her father, Jamie, and lawyer, Andrew Wallet, are her conservators and make key personal and financial decisions for the pop superstar.

Prince’s relationship with his family was never simple. His parents had children from several marriages, and over the years these eight brothers and sisters fell in and out of favor with their famous family member. Now, following Prince’s unexpected death at age 57, those little-known siblings — his likely heirs — suddenly find themselves in the public eye.

Nearly three weeks after Prince’s body was discovered at his Paisley Park compound in suburban Minneapolis, no will has yet emerged – Prince’s only full sibling, sister Tyka Nelson, says she has no knowledge of a will, and his estate’s court-appointed special administrator, Bremer Trust, has yet to uncover one.
