'That's The Past!' Britney Spears Reacts To New Documentary About Conservatorship
”I really try to disassociate myself from the drama !!!" said Britney Spears, whose conservatorship is the subject of two documentaries that have been released in the past four days.
Britney Spears is reacting on social media to two new documentaries about her conservatorship with an Instagram post that includes eye-rolling emojis.
“It's really crazy guys ... I watched a little bit of the last documentary and I must say I scratched my head a couple of times!!!” the “Overprotected” star posted on Monday, along with a shrug and a eye-rolling emoji.
”I really try to disassociate myself from the drama !!! Number one ... that's the past !!! Number two ... can the dialogue get any classier??? Number three ... wow they used the most beautiful footage of me in the world !!! What can I say .. the EFFORT on their part,” she wrote, seemingly sarcastically along with another emoji of an eye roll and a clapping hand.
As she doesn’t specify, it’s not clear which documentary Spears, 39, is referring to. “Controlling Britney Spears”— a new New York Times documentary hit Hulu on Friday. “Britney vs Spears” began streaming on Netflix on Tuesday, a day after Spears’ post. Both documentaries focus on her conservatorship and both contain shocking allegations about it. In “Controlling Britney Spears,” a former security employee claims that Spears’ dad Jamie Spears secretly bugged her bedroom. The alleged controlling nature of the arrangement is further explored in “Britney vs Spears.”
It has been an eventual week for Britney as it is expected to continue that way. On Thursday, Judge Brenda Penny will address the petition to remove Britney's dad as conservator of her estate and Jamie’s petition to end the arrangement, in a hearing that could prove pivotal for the conservator’s status.
Jamie has been his daughter’s conservator of person for 13 years. He was also her conservator of person from 2008 until 2019 when he stepped down. He announced last month that he will step down from the conservatorship but only after certain conservatorship issues, including accounting, are wrapped up. Britney’s lawyer filed paperwork in turn claiming that Jamie wanted his daughter to pay him millions in return for quitting his role as overseer of her finances. Britney has accused her father of conservatorship abuse and said he should be in jail.
