The 39-year-old singer, who has got a lot of support from her fans with the #FreeBritney campaign, again got tremendous support online where a majority of the fans were not willing to accept the remarks made by the singer’s father. Slamming Britney’s dad, one user stated, “i'm so sick of hearing that Britney is in ward because of her drug problems or bc she has dementia bitch she did five tours, she recorded records, interviews plz #FreeBritney.” Another posted, “Sorry but Britney is what 40? That is RARE AS FUCK to have such advanced dementia so young. Dementia is an umbrella term in itself, if this is legit where’s the actual evidence? don’t buy it and I care for multiple people living with different dementias everyday Free Britney 100%.”

One fan shared, “13 years ago Britney was placed under a conservatorship for “dementia” but how does someone who has “dementia” perform, release albums, Become a judge on xfactor, and so many other things? #FreeBritney.” One fan said, “the fact i've got faceless profiles sending me links to try and persuade me britney spears has dementia? istg the internet is a fucking TOILET.” Another shared, “britney spears doesn't have dementia. i'm sorry. the fact that this is even up for debate is just fucking ridiculous. watch any interview she's given - she's clearly present, competent, sound of mind enough to emotionally connect and 'give' to the interviewer etc etc.” One fan added, “Dementia??? James Spears is a liar and only wants to continue using Britney as a cash-cow. This is what abusive stage parents do to their children all the time except in this case he is legally able to do so for the rest of her life.” Another expressed, “I genuinely believe Britney Spears father is pure evil. How can you hurt your own blood, and in front of the entire world to profit off of her fall?”



 



 



 



 



 



 



 

Britney Spears’ conservatorship

The award-winning crooner hasn't legally controlled her life and fortune for 12 years. The conservatorship — a legal guardianship typically enacted for those incapable of making their own decisions — was approved in Los Angeles Superior Court in 2008 after the singer had several public mental breakdowns. The conservatorship does not allow the singer to manage her estate, financial assets and some personal assets. For the unversed, Spears’ conservatorship was extended four times in 2020. Britney had also requested to have her father removed as conservator twice last year, only to be declined by the judge both times.

The conservatorship then led to the #FreeBritney campaign as her fans think the singer is being controlled and manipulated by her father. The #FreeBritney campaign Change.org petition amassed more than 107,500 signatures in 2019 and also got a positive response from celebrities such as Miley Cyrus, Ariel Winter, Ruby Rose and Paris Hilton as well as the American Civil Liberties Union.
