More fans and celebrities have come out in favour of Britney Spears since she revealed her harrowing experience under the court-ordered conservatorship during a recent hearing.
Another celebrity that has come up in her support is Madonna. Sharing a picture, she wrote on her Instagram story,
“Give this woman her life back. Slavery was abolished so long ago! Death to the greedy patriarchy that has been doing this to women for centuries,” Madonna wrote. This is a violation of human rights! Britney we coming to get you out of jail!”
For the unversed, Britney Spears had described the 13-year conservatorship over her life as stupid and abusive claiming she was traumatised and angry and wanted her life back. Spears informed the Los Angeles judge overseeing the arrangement that she wanted it to terminate in a statement that lasted more than 20 minutes.
“I just want my life back,” she said. “I’m not here to be anyone’s slave. I’m traumatized… I’m not happy, I can’t sleep,” she said. Spears said her frequent upbeat postings on her Instagram account were lies. “I’m so angry and I’m depressed. I cry every day,” she added.
Spears delivered her remarks by phone, her first public statements about the court-approved arrangement that was first put in place in 2008 when she suffered a mental health breakdown.
She said she was pushed into a $60,000-per-month mental health institution after cancelling her planned Las Vegas gigs in early 2019. Since late 2018, she hasn’t performed. Judge Brenda Penny of the Los Angeles Superior Court indicated that before she could take any action, she would require a petition to the court asking for the conservatorship to be removed.
