On Tuesday, Samuel Ingram, the attorney appointed to represent the "Toxic" singer, asked the court to allow her to speak, though he did not specify what she would say. He did, however, ask that the date be set "on an expedited basis."

"The conservatee has requested that I seek from the court a status hearing at which she can address the court directly," Ingram said.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Brenda Penny scheduled the hearing for June 23.
