Sam Williams, the son of Hank Williams Jr., recently made a number of posts on social media, as well as a video in which he holds up a series of handwritten signs, alleging his father has placed him in a conservatorship.
According to a series of tweets posted Wednesday night, as well as a YouTube video that has since been deleted, the 24-year-old country singer claims that his father had him put in a conservatorship 18 months ago following the death of his sister Katie.
“I am in a conservatorship,” Sam says in a series of four separate tweets. Then, in the video uploaded to YouTube prior to being deleted, he claims that his father and half-sister have been appointed as his protectors under the conservatorship.
“I want out,” he writes on the first of many handwritten signs in the otherwise hauntingly silent video. “I've been quiet a long time now. I want out of this, and I don't mind people knowing. They took my grief process, my spirit, my money, my car, my home, and everything possible in order to 'protect me.' Well, I need protection from them."
"I have worked my broken heart to quits since my dear Katie left for Home,” he also writes in what was the caption to the now deleted video. “I do not deserve this. This is a scary step but I don't see what else to do here. I am ashamed of my family and embarrassed. I am beyond done. I have my spirit back. Get. Me. Out. Please."

TMZ has since revealed that Sam’s father Hank did file a petition for a conservatorship in August 2020 for his 24-year-old son, but the current status of that conservatorship is not known.
Around the same time his father filed the legal documents, Sam released his first album titled Glasshouse Children.
"I definitely broke and went through a really, really, really hard time,” he told PEOPLE during an interview following the album’s release. “I'm still climbing out of it. But, it's the 'still climbing' part that is the most important. That'll just always be a big part of my story."
