Britney Spears could have help in the form of her A-list friends when it comes to breaking free from her conservatorship.
Friends such as Mariah Carey, Miley Cyrus and even Justin Timberlake have all publicly acknowledged how wrong her situation is, a conservatorship set up by her father in 2008, and are backing the #freebritney movement.
But a source also told Heat magazine that they could be setting up a legal fund—in order to help the Baby One More Time singer.
We love you Britney!!! Stay strong ❤️❤️❤️June 23, 2021
Last month Britney gave a shocking first-person account of the "abusive" conservatorship she's endured for 13 years at a court hearing.
Speaking in open court for the first time since the #FreeBritney movement began, the pop star accused her father, Jamie Spears, of controlling her "100,000%"—including her right to have more children.
And her a-list friends could be going one step further—to help the #freebritney movement.
“Britney has a lot of famous friends who are desperate to help,” a source told Heat magazine, “Miley, Katy and Paris have all been regularly messaging her via Instagram, as they know it’s the one outlet she has. They’re all offering what advice they can and have told Britney to continue meditating and practicing self-care methods while working on an escape route with her new legal team. They’ve even offered to set up a legal fund for her.”
After what we saw today, we should all be supporting Britney at this time. Regardless of our past, good and bad, and no matter how long ago it was… what’s happening to her is just not right. No woman should ever be restricted from making decisions about her own body.June 24, 2021
Ever since the trial last month, and the NY Times documentary which explained the conservatorship and the #freebritney movement, celebrities have been flocking to support the pop icon.
Mariah tweeted, "We love you Britney!!! Stay Strong," while Miley sang about the conservatorship, amending the lyrics of her song 'Party In The USA'—"The taxi man turned on the radio, he turned to me and said, 'Free Britney, Free Britney!'", adding, "we got to free this b*tch, it's stressing me the f*ck out!"
Ex-boyfriend Justin Timberlake also showed his support on Twitter by saying, "After what we saw today, we should all be supporting Britney at this time. Regardless of our past, good and bad, and no matter how long ago it was… what’s happening to her is just not right. No woman should ever be restricted from making decisions about her own body."
We hope it's true—as we can't wait to see the pop icon back doing what she does best.
