Britney Spears doesn’t seem happy with the documentaries being made about her life following the release of her 13-year conservatorship in November 2021.
The 41-year-old pop star – who recently wrote about past hostile encounters with law enforcement – took to social media on Monday to speak out about the films.
Spears appeared to accuse the filmmakers of trying to “rig the system” while discussing her “toughest times three years ago.”
And the singer seemed annoyed that the producers were pretending that she was somehow benefiting from these documentaries.
‘BULLS***!!! Is it all arranged in talking sh**???’ she exclaimed.
Motive: Britney Spears, 41, questioned the motive behind documentaries about her in a lengthy Instagram post on Monday (pictured in Los Angeles in July 2019)
Question: The singer posted a question two years ago from Lady Gaga’s manager, Bobby Campbell, about documentaries being produced about her and her 13-year conservatorship in the run-up to her release
Some of the films made about her include TMZ Investigates: Britney Spears: Divorce and Despair, CNN’s Toxic: Britney Spears’ Battle for Freedom and the Netflix film Britney vs Spears.
There was too The New York Times documentary Framing Britney Spears, released in February 2021.
Upon its release, Britney said she was embarrassed and “cried about it for two weeks.”
The new social media post started with Spears sharing an older passage from Lady Gaga’s manager, Bobby Campbell.
In 2021, he became concerned about the disturbing motive behind the number of projects being produced around Spears.
Campbell noted at the time, “There needs to be transparency about how and whether the filmmakers benefit from this document, from defense, from legal defense funds to help those who don’t have the financial resources to fight against unnecessary conservatorships. ‘
Benefit: The Circus Singer said ‘hour-long documentaries showing my toughest times from three years ago, proclaiming that I should benefit from them!!!’ were ”BULLS**T!!! Is it all arranged in talking sh*t???’
New Document: TMZ Investigates: Britney Spears: Divorce and Despair was released on Hulu in August. The film looks at the singer’s life post-conservatorship, including her marriage and divorce to Sam Asghari (pictured in Beverly Hills in April 2018).
He added, “But is Britney Spears okay with people making these documentaries?”
The overprotected artist responded to his message by writing: ‘Interesting. The last sentence !!! Would it matter if I didn’t like it??? JUST SAY IT!!!!’
Drawing comparisons to other controversial situations, she said: “Come on dualities and most arguments are always calculated both ways!!!
‘What it comes down to is intention!!!
“From where did they come?” Was it to show support…understanding…love??? Why not !!! None of these !!! It was to insult and only insult!!!’
The termination of Britney’s thirteen-year conservatorship made the news.
It was the #Free Britney movement that helped draw attention to the situation surrounding the legal agreement that left the Grammy winner’s father Jamie and others in charge of not only her money, but her personal life as well.
More documents: Three other documentaries were produced before her release from a yearlong conservatorship: The New York Times’ Controlling Britney Spears, CNN’s Toxic: Britney Spears’ Battle for Freedom and the Netflix film Britney vs Spears
Lifesaver: Britney initially said she was embarrassed by the focus on her lawsuit, but after she was released from her conservatorship she thanked the #FreeBritney movement for its efforts. “I honestly think you guys saved my life in a way. 100 percent,” she said in a video
After her legal battle was won, the emancipated artist said the efforts of the #FreeBritney movement saved her life.
In a video four days after the decision in November 2021, the Lucky singer posted a video to Instagram proclaiming, “The #FreeBritney movement – y’all rock.”
“Honestly, my voice was muffled and threatened for so long, and I wasn’t able to speak up or say anything… I really think you guys saved my life in a way. 100 percent.’
“I’m just honestly grateful for every day that I have the keys to my car, and that I can be independent and feel like a woman,” she said.
