Britney Spears Disappears From Instagram as Father Insists She’s Not Comatose

Another day, another frightening development in the increasingly sad saga of Britney Spears.

If you've been following the latest news of the pop icon, then you're aware that Britney's fans have become seriously concerned for her well-being -- and with good reason.

Britney Is Serious

Many of their fears stem from the Britney's conservatorship, which has been in place since 2008, and has allegedly deprived her of her basic rights and freedoms.

It's common knowledge that Britney does not have control over her $60 million fortune or major decisions regarding her career.

Now, fans fear that she's not even permitted to leave the house or communicate with her adoring public.

Britney Looks Tired

The concerns that Britney is being held captive stem largely from her Instagram posts, in which she frequently behaves in an erratic fashion.

Her short video clips are often accompanied by nonsensical captions, in which the singer makes frequent, confusing references to colors and plants.

Some fans believe these are clandestine cries for help, that Spears is communicating with her fans through coded messages.

Britney ... Or Her Lookalike?

Others believe that they're simply an indication of a woman who is suffering from mental illness and not receiving the treatment she needs.

Whatever the case, both groups agree that the latest development is the most troubling of all -- Spears has disappeared from Instagram entirely.

After months of posting every day -- often several times a day -- Britney has been silent on the site for nearly a week.

Her unexpected absence comes as her latest legal battle is intensifying.

Back in August, Spears lost a court case against her father, Jamie Spears., as a judge ruled that her controversial conservatorship should continue until at least February of 2021.

Now, Britney and her legal team are appealing the decision in what some observers have described as a literal fight for her life.

Brtiney Spears: Quarantine Six-Pack

In one of the case's most dramatic moments, Britney's lawyers claimed that she's mentally unfit to give testimony in court, comparing her to a comatose patient whose fate is being decided without her understanding or consent.

Now, Jamie Spears is lashing out against that description and claiming that he can prove his daughter is perfectly aware of what's happening.

According to a new report from TMZ, Jamie is using the upcoming election as proof of Britney's mental competence, pointing out that she still retains certain rights, including the right to vote.

In recently filed court docs, Jamie lashes out at Britney's attorney, Sam Ingham, arguing that he does not have the right to be her "exclusive voice."

The bickering involves Britney's decision to retire from performing, something her father claims she's capable of explaining to the court herself.

When a judge asked why Britney has not filed a declaration about her career intent, Ingham argued that she's not mentally equipped to do so.

Britney Spears Has Lost Weight in Quarantine

Ironically, the situation finds Jamie arguing in favor of his daughter's mental competence and pushing for her to testify in court, a development that would surely attract a great deal of media attention to the case.

As for Britney's disappearance from Instagram, she might be keeping a low profile on the advice of her attorneys.

Either way, you can be sure the #FreeBritney community will be paying close attention if and when Britney takes the stand.

Britney Spears is Trapped in ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ According to Makeup Artist

Margaret Atwood wrote The Handmaid’s Tale in 1985 based mainly on the idea that the growing power of the religious right under Ronald Reagan could turn America into a theocracy like Saudi Arabia; it was never something likely to happen, but Atwood based her books on how it might and what it would look like if Christianity were the basis of an absolute totalitarian state.

The one thing everyone knows about the book is the Handmaid’s themselves, who in Atwood’s story are the concubines of elite men assigned to bear their children. This is how Britney Spears’ makeup artist Maxi describes the singers’ life to Us Magazine.

“I can tell you what they’re still controlling to this day is whether she has a baby or not, whether she gets married or not, who her friends are, and those are some big things,” Maxi claimed during a recent episode of the “Calababes Podcast,” released on Thursday, October 22. “We’re talking about some Handmaid’s Tale-type things to keep her from having a baby. Like, we’re talking … I can’t detail it and I’m not gonna specifically say, but I will say for sure, she would’ve had a baby by now. She would’ve probably been married to [boyfriend] Sam [Asghari] by now. She would have groups of friends around her.”

That’s not exactly what The Handmaid’s Tale is like, but it also doesn’t sound great. I don’t know how you control her having a baby, is she being forced to take birth control? Is Jamie running in and ripping her boyfriend’s penis out of her vagina so she doesn’t get pregnant? If there’s one thing everyone should have learned when they were in high school it’s that parents can’t stop their children from having sex.

Maxi also detailed how Jamie tried to keep Britney from dating Sam to begin with.

“At that time, she was under the conservatorship basically controlled by the father, but even at that time she was able to bring in Sam as a boyfriend,” he alleged. “Now Sam was put through hell by the father and I can’t detail all the things that he went through, but he went through a lot of hell to even be with her.”

It’s more mounting evidence that Spears shouldn’t be in conservatorship and if she is, her father shouldn’t be the conservator. She probably does need some help with some decisions, but she can hire people she trusts to help her make those decisions instead of the court allowing her father to make all of them for her.

Britney Spears: Are Fans Right to Be Concerned About Her Bizarre Dance Videos?

If you follow her on any social media platform, then by now, you're certainly aware that there's been a tremendous outpouring of concern for Britney Spears.

Much of the worry is a result of Britney's legal battle against her father, Jamie Spears.

Britney Looks Tired

For most of her adult life, Britney has been under the control of a court-ordered conservatorship.

The arrangement -- which is the result of very public mental health issues the singer suffered in 2008 -- essentially gives her father full control of her life and, crucially, her finances.

Now, many fans fear that the situation is resulting in a resurfacing of the mental health issues that led to the conservatorship in the first place.

Britney Models

Recent videos that Britney has posted on TikTok and Instagram have led to concerns that she's deeply stressed and not receiving the kind of care she needs.

Some of these videos contain what fans believe to be coded cries for help -- captions that contain strange language, such as frequent, confusing references to colors and flowers. 

While it's certainly possible that Britney is covertly sending messages to her fans, the other prevailing theory seems more likely:

Britney ... Or Her Lookalike?

Many believe that Spears is having difficulty handling the dual pressures of Covid and her seemingly never-ending court battle against her father.

They point to her disheveled appearance in recent videos, as well as the odd captions that Spears has written to accompany some of her posts.

These concerns have been reflected in the comments left by her Instagram followers.

"There is legit something wrong with her," one fan recently wrote.

"Britney what is happeninggggg," another added.

Another said that Spears' routines are "so uncomfortable to watch," adding that "all her dances look the same."

One commenter took the criticism a step further, writing:

"Not gonna lie it looks like she been doing some meth."

Admittedly, this is not the Britney we're used to seeing.

But it's possible that there's a simple explanation for the unusual looks that she's been sporting in recent pics and videos.

"I know I’m barefoot and my hair is once again a hot mess!!!!" Britney captioned a recent post.

"If you only knew what it’s like dancing in heels every night in Vegas and spending hours getting my hair and makeup perfect ... only then would you understand why my feet go to the holy ground whenever they can and how free my hair feels with no hairspray !!!!"

Britney Spears is Very Short

Is there a chance that these concerns have been overblown?

Is Britney just enjoying honing her craft in the comfort of her own home?

It's certainly possible, but you can be sure fans won't ease up until Britney is granted permission to give an interview explaining the tumultuous year she's had.

Britney Spears Rants In a Bikini, Covers Tattoo, Leaves Fans Concerned

For several months now, Britney Spears' Instagram posts have been creating concern among fans.

It's a stressful time for Britney, as the singer is involved in a legal battle against her father, and at stake is nothing less than her freedom.

Spears has been controlled by a conservatorship for most of her adult life -- ever since she suffered her infamous "meltdown" and shaved her head back in 2007.

Now, it seems she's simultaneously fighting for her freedom and enduring another episode related to her mental health.

And the efforts from her team to keep the situation under wraps are, ironically, alerting more people to Britney's instability.

Several times in recent weeks, Spears has addressed her followers in brief Instagram videos in which she seems to be reading from a script.

The last one led to comments that Britney is behaving in a manic fashion and seems to be making the videos against her will.

Spears' latest video is no different, in that the singer once again appears disheveled and eager to get off camera.

"So, this is the exact same bathing suit I wore like three days ago to the beach, but I said hey, why not give it another shot," Britney, clad in a faux-snakeskin bikini, tells the camera.

"But, while I'm at it...I just wanted to let you guys know the five most important things that you need to bring when you go to the beach," the singer continues.

"A towel, oil, sunscreen, a dog, and a hat."

After enumerating the items one needs for a day at the beach, Britney curiously says, "I'm going to go to my jacuzzi now," and walks off camera.

Like so many of her recent clips, this one seems to be an attempt at humor that missed the mark.

Fans were quick to point out that Spears was wearing a white bandage on her wrist, seemingly in an effort to cover the dice tattoo she got as a tribute to ex-husband Kevin Federline.

"Something isn't right. Someone must be scripting her because she sounds very unnatural and very ... childlike," one fan commented.

"The wristband makes me uneasy," another wrote.

"This is not normal....at all," a third chimed in.

Also creating concern is a recent video in which Spears gyrates in skimpy attire to the tune of Madonna's 1990 hit “Justify My Love.”

This one seemed less coerced than the other, but Britney's unusual attire and dance moves left many of her Instagram followers concerned for her well-being.

"Someone has got to be drugging her," one person wrote.

"This is terrifying," another commented.

"This is painful to watch," a third remarked.

One fan seemed to speak for millions of Britney fans when she offered a simple statement of concern:

"Please let us know how we can best support you during this time," she wrote.

No doubt many fans are feeling frustrated from watching their favorite pop icon endure such a difficult time in the public eye, especially since it seems as though Britney is not getting the help she needs.

All we can do is hope that there's someone in Spears' corner who truly has her best interests at heart.

Britney Spears Expands Legal Team, Hopefully With People Who Won’t Call Her a Coma Patient

Britney Spears has been involved with a protracted legal battle with her father Jamie over the future of her conservatorship; it appears that the singer wants it ended but if norm she doesn’t want her father to be the sole conservator. Spears’ fans have been vocal in wanting her conservatorship ended, and her friends and other family have generally sided with the “Free Britney” movement, which lends it a lot of credence.

Variety reports that Spears racked up another win with the court accepting her petition to expand her legal team.

Britney, 38, is seeking to have Jamie removed from her conservatorship, which has been in effect for 12 years. She was not present for the latest hearing, although though her mother, Lynne Spears, Jamie and her attorney, Samuel Ingham were.

Jamie had opposed Britney’s petition, citing the cost of adding more lawyers.

Jamie Spears gets paid over $10k a month to be his daughter’s conservator, so if finances are a problem then maybe he could give that up. It seems weird that Jamie is in a position to oppose someone hiring more lawyers for a legal fight against him.

Personally, I think Britney should be able to do whatever she wants here. I don’t see why she needs to be in conservatorship and if it’s voluntary like she says, it can just be ended and she can hire someone trustworthy to manage her finances, she doesn’t need to be legally required to do so.

Britney Spears’ Lawyers Say She’s Mentally Unfit For Court, Compare Singer to Comatose Patient

We've known for quite some time that something is seriously amiss in the life of pop icon Britney Spears.

And now, it looks as though the situation might be even more serious than we previously thought.

Britney Spears is Very Short

According to a new report from TMZ, attorneys for Spears say the singer is mentally unfit to sign a sworn declaration in her ongoing court case against her father.

Britney lost her latest legal battle against her dad, and her team is currently appealing the decision.

At issue is the question of who will head the team that manages everything from Britney's finances to her travel plans.

Britney on Instagram In 2020

Spears is fighting for her right to hire a conservator of her own choosing, rather than re-hiring Andrew Wallet, a man who was chosen by her father and was forced to step down last year due to health issues.

Earlier in the process, Britney's lawyers stated that she cannot afford Wallet, as she plans to retire from performing, which is her primary source of income.

The judge in the case asked for a sworn declaration of Britney's intention to retire, and that's when her lawyers revealed that she's not up to the task.

Brit Spears Pic

Attorneys for Jamie Spears pressed the issue, with Jamie insisting that Britney has every intention of resuming to her Las Vegas residency once the pandemic subsides.

His team argued that all claims to the contrary from Britney's lawyers are just hearsay.

It was then that Britney's head legal counsel, Sam Ingham, compared her to a comatose patient.

Britney Spears in Yellow

To be clear, Ingham is not saying that Spears is comatose; he was simply making an analogy, arguing that she's just as incapable of comprehending a sworn statement about her career.

Obviously, this a worrisome development, and it's likely to galvanize the growing #FreeBritney movement on social media.

For several months now, fans of the singer have been arguing that Britney is being held captive by her father and others who seek to control her fortune.

Britney Spears Wears a White Flower

They claim that she's been sending coded messages to her fans via Instagram as a last-ditch cry for help.

That may sound outlandish, but some of their suspicions appear to be supported by recent developments in court.

For example, while Jamie Spears has asked that the proceedings be made private, attorneys for Britney have asked that the hearing take place in open court.

Brtiney Spears: Quarantine Six-Pack

It seems they know they have the public's support, and they want Britney's fans to know exactly what's going on with her conservatorship.

Over the weekend, Britney took a trip with Sam Asghari, her boyfriend of several years.

Fans commented on the pics, asking Asghari to intervene and help Britney free herself from her father.

The model didn't respond, but it seems like he has little influence over the situation.

Sadly, for all the concern for Britney on social media, it looks as though her fate will remain in the hands of a judge who has previously ruled against her.

We'll keep you updated on this developing situation as more information becomes available.

Britney Spears’ Lawyer Says She’s as Mentaly Fit as a Coma Patient

I never thought Britney Spears was a genius, but I also never thought she had the brain of a coma patient. Her lawyer apparently disagrees.

TMZ reports that Spears’ lawyer compared her to someone who was comatose in court when asked if she could submit a signed declaration of her wishes for her conservatorship.

The judge asked Ingham if Britney would sign a declaration so there’d be a first-hand account of her feelings. Ingham said Britney lacked the capacity to sign a declaration, and likened her to a comatose patient. He was not saying she is comatose by any means, but he used it by way of example to show she was not capable of signing a legal document. Ingham said even comatose patients can have their lawyers speak for them.

Now, I’m neither a lawyer nor a mental health practitioner, but as an opinion writer, I don’t buy it. If a family court judge can ask a six-year-old which parent they want to live with, then this judge can ask Britney what it is she wants.

Now, her lawyer should have her best interest in mind, and I have no evidence that he doesn’t or that he isn’t working on her behalf and for what she actually wants. But I also don’t think Britney’s capacity is that of a coma patient; I understand what he was saying, that it isn’t necessary for her to submit a declaration, but I also don’t understand what the issue would be with her submitting said declaration or being questioned by the judge directly.

The key issue here is that Spears’ lawyer has told the court she wants to be done performing and her father wants to tart her up and push her up on stage, which makes sense because I think how she got on The Mickey Mouse Club.

Britney Spears Begs Fans: Help Me Escape My Father!

Britney Spears turns 39 in December.

Yet for most of her adult life, the icon has been under the control of a conservatorship that denies her many of the basic freedoms enjoyed by most grownups.

By court order, Britney is unable to make any major decisions regarding her vast fortune or the welfare of her children without consulting a team of overseers headed by her father.

The arrangement has been in place since the time of Spears' well-publicized breakdown back in 2007, but it's been back in the news in recent months for a number of reasons.

For starters, the legendary Britney faced off against her father in court in an effort to end the conservatorship.

Her efforts were in vain, as the judge ruled against her, but the appeal process is already underway (more on that later).

The other reason the pop star has been making tabloid headlines for the past three months is that fans are convinced Britney has been sending coded messages to her fans through her Instagram page.

These are the same people who believe that Spears is being held captive by her conservators, and is not even allowed to leave the house without permission and supervision.

It sounds a little crazy - at times, more than a little crazy - but lately, there's been reason to believe that card-carrying members of Britney Nation might be on to something.

All summer, Britney seemed to subtly respond to prompts from fans who asked her to wear yellow or talk about flowers in her next post if she was in danger.

Now, the singer has posted a series of videos in which she works her way through new dance routines, and fans are convinced they're witnessing yet another cry for help.

“This is my next project “Just a Touch of Red“ .... get it .... RED ROSE? Ps way more of RED to COME ... my hair will get a little wilder and my body a little sweatier," Spears captioned one such clip.

Fans were quick to notice that Britney was once again mentioning flowers and colors, both of which she used as symbols to indicate distress in recent months.

“This is chilling. I feel like I’m watching someone go through something horrible and I can do nothing to help,” one follower commented. 

“Omg red means danger and she said red three times. Guys what can we do to help?” another wrote.

Obviously, fans could be overthinking this one, but Britney's situation is so bizarre these days that no theory about her increasingly erratic posts should be discounted.

Further complicating the situation is the intensifying legal battle Britney and her father, Jamie Spears (below).

In new court documents obtained by TMZ, Brit's lawyers blasted Jamie for attempting to re-hire Andrew Wallet as the head of her conservtaorship team.

Wallet served as Britney's conservator from 2008 to 2019.

Her lawyers argue that Wallet is "uniquely unsuited" for the job, not only because he clashed with Britney, but also because he was wildly expensive to retain.

They say the singer is being forced to make "difficult budgetary choices going forward," and they simply can't afford Wallet, who was paid millions, and received a $100,000 payout when he quit the job last year.

 

Britney's dad has fired back, alleging that his daughter's latest filing is "full of factual misstatements."

She has now hinted that she will not be performing again - possibly ever - unless this is resolved.

It's anyone's guess what might happen when Britney and Jamie face off in court again later this month.

But one thing is certain - it seems fans are right to be concerned, and this is not going to be neatly resolved.

Sam Asghari SLAMS Britney Spears’ Trolls: Be Nice or Unfollow!

Tragically, Britney Spears' awful father is still her conservator. Fans have a lot of legitimate worries about her freedoms.

But when an author took things too far, it was Britney's boyfriend who stepped up, shutting down the comment and praising Britney.

Sam Asghari

Kelly Oxford is an author, and one of countless fans of Britney Spears who have taken part in #FreeBritney discussions.

However, under a recent post of Britney's, Kelly seemed alarm by the singing sensation's social media feed.

"This account finally got too scary for me," she declared in a comment.

Britney Spears and Sam Asghari, Masked at the Beach

"What’s so scary about being the biggest superstar in the world being herself?" Britney's hunky boyfriend Sam Asghari replied.

He went on to describe her as "authentic, funny, humble."

Sam proudly notes that Britney does all of this "without caring what others think."

"We need more people like her," Sam wrote, "and less Karen’s."

We're sure that he meant to write fewer and also that he did not intend to use an apostrophe to denote a plural. Hey, typos happen.

Sam's comment concluded: "Also Instagram installed this button that you can hit to unfollow about 10 years ago …"

Sam Asghari IG clapback (light mode)

Britney's posts themselves are not, at first glance, scary.

Her photos tend to be selfies or self-like photos of her modeling clothing.

"Scary" isn't really a word that applies to most of her photos -- even though Halloween is her favorite holiday.

Britney Is Serious

The captions tend to range from simple statements about her latest interest to lengthier well-wishes.

For example, one of her most recent posts encourages people to support front-line medical workers during this pandemic.

Britney's words also ask her fans to be environmentally conscious in their choices.

Another recent caption quoted one of Selena Gomez's many excellent songs -- talent recognizes talent.

Britney suggested that the "kill 'em with kindness" method is the best approach.

Selena replied with praise with a comment of her own.

Now, before anyone gives author and public figure Kelly Oxford a hard time, we should explain that she is not alone.

What is "scary" about Britney's Instagram posts, to some, is that she will post many pictures from the same spot, in the same series of outfits.

It appears that she takes multiple photos at once, and then shares individual photos from that shoot at different times with new captions.

Britney Spears IG conspiracy theory replies sample 01 of 03

Seriously, her comments look more or less like this under every single post.

Person after person talking about her sharing similar pics on different days.

Some are annoyed (and yet want to make it her problem). Others are deeply worried.

Britney Spears IG conspiracy theory replies sample 02 of 03

They think that someone else is sharing these photos.

Though Britney posted an Instagram video in 2019 denouncing the claims that her social media is controlled by others, some are unconvinced.

After all, her conservatorship controls so many aspects of her life. Who, they wonder, is to say that she wasn't simply forced to make that video ... or that things haven't changed since then.

Britney Spears IG conspiracy theory replies sample 03 of 03

Worrying about Britney's limited freedoms and her human rights as this conservatorship marches on without ending is both good and reasonable.

It is not unreasonable to have questions about Britney's posts, even if there are simpler explanations than a lack of social media autonomy.

Some, however, have allowed their imaginations to run wild, like this wildly unhinged comment saying that Britney is a victim of Illuminati mind-control.

Britney Spears IG conspiracy theory reply MK Ultra

Just a reminder: there's no Illuminati, Britney is not under MK Ultra mind control, and spouting this stuff does a disservice to Britney.

It's very important that, as we all discuss Britney's path to autonomy and freedom, we don't get carried away.

There is a difference between pushing for the truth or for justice and simply turning a real person's suffering into a meme.

Britney In Trouble?

Is Britney's Instagram all a facade in which she is forced to play a humiliating role?

It's possible, even if it's unlikely.

But even if it's true, filling her comments with conspiracy theory garbage wouldn't exactly set her free, would it? And if it's not the case ... why risk ruining her day?

The ACLU is Going to Help Free Britney

Britney Spears is still under a conservatorship and while she recently petitioned the court to have her father removed from it she’s going to be under it for some time. But the ACLU has offered to take up her case and end her conservatorship once and for all.

They have a point here, Britney is nearly 40, she doesn’t really need a babysitter. She was put in conservatorship in 2008. Do you know how long ago that was? How I Met Your Mother was still good in 2008. Hell, Scrubs was still good in 2008. And I’m pretty sure BTS were all in kindergarten or whatever kind of prison camp they send K-Pop stars to as children.

A judge recently extended the conservatorship through February 2021, and are we really supposed to believe Britney is less mentally stable than Kanye West?

Now, I don’t buy into the idea that Spears is being held against her will or kidnapped or Shanghaied by pirates or whatever the hell people think is going on. But I do know that she’s under a conservatorship and that means she basically can’t run her own life. And I hate to beat a dead horse here, but Kanye West is running his own life and he decided to run for President and build Tatooine beehive houses without a permit.

What I’m saying is there doesn’t need to be a big conspiracy for Britney to be released from this conservatorship; she’s a grown woman and deserves to make her own decisions.

Britney Spears to Judge: Please Free Me From My Dad!

Britney Spears has been making tabloid headlines all summer, and now, it seems the recent drama in the pop icon's personal life has come to a head.

Over the past few months, Britney's conservatorship has become a source of growing concern for fans.

Britney With a Flower Crown

Under the terms of the arrangement, which stems from Spears' well-documented 2007 breakdown, Britney's life is almost entirely under the control of her father, Jamie Spears.

Fans have gone so far as to claim that Britney is being held captive by her own family.

Some have even theorized that Spears is sending coded messages via her Instagram page in the hope that fans will recognize the desperation of her situation and come to her rescue.

Britney on Instagram In 2020

The conservatorship was supposed to come up for review last month, but a court hearing was canceled due to alleged privacy concerns.

Now, Britney has finally gotten a chance to plead her case to a judge.

And not surprisingly, her lawyers have asked that Jamie -- referred to in legal documents as James -- be removed as Britney's conservator.

Britney Spears Wears a White Flower

It seems that Jamie stepped down from his role in controlling his daughter's life as a result of health problems which he began experiencing in 2018.

He recently returned to his post, and he and Britney have been clashing ever since.

"Britney is strongly opposed to James' return as conservator of her person," reads one court filing, obtained by the New York Times and other media outlets.

Britney Spears in Yellow

Interestingly, Spears is not entirely opposed to the conservatorship, which her lawyers say  "rescued her from a collapse, exploitation by predatory individuals and financial ruin" and made her "able to regain her position as a world class entertainer."

What Britney wants is for her manager, Jodi Montgomery, to resume her role as executor of the conservatorship.

Spears lawyers' point out that she enjoyed a career renaissance in her years under Montgomery's control, a time that included a successful and wildly lucrative Las Vegas residency.

Brtiney Spears: Quarantine Six-Pack

It seems Britney's lawyers are eager to assure the public that there's no bad blood between Britney and her father -- but at the same time, they want him to surrender control of her career.

Jamie has been defensive in recent months, blasting the conspiracy theories about his daughter's alleged captivity in a recent interview.

“All these conspiracy theorists don’t know anything,” he said at the time.

Britney Spears Has Lost Weight in Quarantine

“I have to report every nickel and dime spent to the court every year," Jamie added.

"How the hell would I steal something? … I love my daughter.”

Legal experts expect that the judge in Britney's case will grant her request, and a decision is expected before the end of this week.

A major victory for the #FreeBritney movement!

Britney Spears Trying to Get Father Jamie Removed From Conservatorship

Britney Spears has been under a conservatorship for over a decade because of that mental breakdown she had. You know, where she shaved her head? A lot of her fans have been speaking out about the need to end it, calling their campaign “Free Britney.”

recently addressed the movement with comments from Spears’ longtime friend and fellow Mouseketeer Lance Bass.

“I get a lot of questions about this, but I always stay silent because I’m like, ‘I don’t know.’ If I had something positive or some real information to share I probably would,” Bass said on the Aug. 13 episode of The Daily Popcast.

“Obviously she’s got some problems. I don’t know what she’s going through, I don’t know exactly what her diagnoses are but online these videos are definitely out of character for her,” the longtime friend of Spears added. “This is kind of a new thing. So something’s going on. I think that’s why a lot of the fans are like, ‘She’s being held hostage because she’s acting so strange.”

He also mentioned that Spears’ siblings wouldn’t just stand by if something bad was happening to her.

But Spears did file paperwork to have her father removed as conservator, as reported by TMZ.

I think there’s a far cry from being bad at being a conservator and holding your daughter hostage. Spears also wants to take time off from performing.

You know, Britney is almost 40. Sure she’s had some problems but she should be able to decide what’s in her own best interest, she’s not an idiot.

Well, I mean, she did marry Kevin Federline, someone stopping that would have been in her best interest. But she’s not even asking to be released from her conservatorship, just to have someone more competent manage it, which seems reasonable.

Britney Spears is More Henna Tattoo Than Woman Now

If you’re not familiar with henna, it’s a very strong hair dye for anyone who wants to be a redhead. It will red the s**t out of your hair forever, believe me. In some places, particularly in India, it’s also used for temporary tattoos which can be quite intricate, extravagant and gorgeous. It’s something of a tradition for Hindu brides to have their hands and feet tattooed like this for a wedding.

Henna tattoos are also illegal in the United States because the FDA only approves henna for use in hair dyes and not for application to the skin, primarily because the additives to make these dyes a color other than red can cause allergic reactions.

Britney Spears will not be told what she can or cannot use to get a temporary tattoo by your little FDA.

It’s kind of hard not to pay attention to Britney.

Of course, not all that attention is, shall we say, hinged, and Page Six highlighted a couple of comments from Britney’s fans who think this is some kind of cry for help from the singer.

Fans, who believe in the #FreeBritney movement, questioned whether the peculiar post was another sign from Spears, 38, to show that she was being held against her will by her conservatorship.

“Wtf have they done to you?!!” one person asked. “Its clear someone else is taking these pictures and the plain background is not lost on us … its VERY obvious they dont want to give any evidence of where you are actually being held at this point.” The comment received more than 400 likes.

Another person wrote, “She’s demanding attention because she’s in trouble.”

Jesus Christ guys, can’t you just get really into QAnon or Russiagate or the moon landing like normal conspiracy-theory weirdos?

Britney Spears: Movement to End Conservatorship Gains Momentum; Is the Pop Icon Being Held Captive?

When the phrase first entered the national lexicon, #FreeBritney referred to the push to liberate Britney Spears from her marriage to Kevin Federline.

These days, Britney and K-Fed's marriage has been over for more than a decade, but the push to secure Spears' independence is stronger than ever.

These days, however, Brit's battling against an opponent far more formidable than some lanky backup dancer with aspirations to make it as a rapper.

The man holding Spears down in 2020 is her own father, and his authority is backed by the law.

Britney is bound by the terms of a conservatorship, meaning a judge has determined that she's incapable of making major decisions about her own life.

Britney Spears Goes Light on the Makeup

According to the court's decision, the singer "cannot make key decisions, personal or financial, without the approval of her conservators: her father, Jamie Spears, and a lawyer, Andrew M. Wallet." 

The two men share their responsibilities with Britney's care manager, a woman named Jodi Montgomery. 

Together they preside over everything from Britney's $60 million fortune to her child custody arrangement with her ex.

Britney Spears Has Lost Weight in Quarantine

The arrangement has been in place since Spears suffered a meltdown amid intense career and personal pressure back in 2008.

She's been struggling to free herself from the conservatorship ever since.

"I basically just want my life back...I want to be able to drive my car," she told Rolling Stone that same year.

Britney Spears Smiles in Miami

"I want to be able to live in my house by myself. I want to be able to say who's going to be my security guard." 

Needless to say, it's not hard to see why many fans have gone so far as to say that Britney is being held captive.

And the events of the past few months have done little to put their minds at ease.

The trouble began back in April when Britney accidentally burned down her home gym.

Britney Spears Models an Off-the Shoulder White Blouse

Fans began paying closer attention to Spears' Instagram page looking for signs of distress.

And many were upset with what they found.

Spears appeared discombobulated in many of her videos, and there was a disturbingly repetitive quality to her posts.

Britney Spears in Yellow

In her photos, she was almost always posed in a similar fashion -- standing in front of a plain white wall, smiling awkwardly, and dressed in a sort of childlike way that fans had never seen before.

That's when the prompts began.

Commenters encouraged Spears to wear yellow and do a twirl in her next video if she needed help.

Britney Spears Wears a White Flower

She did so.

As Mashable notes, one fan encouraged Spears to post doves if she needed assistance from the outside world.

She later posted a Hans Zatzka painting that featured several doves.

Brtiney Spears: Quarantine Six-Pack

On TikTok and Instagram, the #FreeBritney movement has picked up steam, with fans creating entire accounts dedicated to liberating Spears.

"For 12 years, she has been denied basic human rights under a legal tool reserved for incapacitated individuals that generates millions of dollars in revenue for her team," wrote one activist.

Recently, a post on Spears' page sought to bring an end to the movement:

Britney Spears Says Oops, I Burned Down My Gym

"Don't believe everything you read and hear. Your love and dedication is amazing, but what I need right now is a little bit of privacy to deal with all the hard things that life is throwing my way," Spears wrote.

"You may not know this about me, but I am strong, and stand up for what I want!"

But as many commenters pointed out, there's no way to be certain that Spears was the author of the post.

Britney Spears is Filled with Cheer

The events of the past week only deepened concerns, as a conservatorship review hearing was canceled amid alleged fears about privacy.

Shortly thereafter, Britney's brother, Bryan Spears, gave an interview in which he described the conservatorship as "a wonderful thing" for his family.

We don't know for sure that anything is amiss in Britney's world, but given the mountain of evidence to that effect, it's not hard to see why fans are concerned.

Britney Spears’ Brother: She’s Too Immature to Take Care of Herself!

Britney Spears has been in the news a lot these past few months, and sadly, very few updates on the pop icon have been encouraging.

In fact, many fans are convinced that Spears is in the midst of a personal crisis.

Brit Spears Pic

The scrutiny began when Spears accidentally burned down her home gym.

Both the action and Britney's blasé reaction were taken as signs that the singer was no faring well in isolation.

And her social media posts in the weeks that followed didn't do much to disabuse fans of that notion.

Brtiney Spears: Quarantine Six-Pack

Now, some are going so far as to claim that Britney is being held captive.

Whether or not that's true in the most literal sense, Spears is currently restrained by a conservatorship controlled by her father.

The arrangement has been a source of controversy for years and it was supposed to come up for review in a status hearing this week.

Britney Spears in Yellow

But as TMZ reports, the phone call did not take place as planned 

Now, Brit's brother, Bryan Spears, is running damage control and sticking up for his dad.

In a new podcast interview, Bryan says that the conservatorship has been a "great thing for our family" and suggests that it would ending the arrangement would be disastrous for Britney,

Bryan and Britney Spears

He concedes that Britney has  "always wanted to get out of [the conservatorship]," but argues that she doesn't know what's best for herself.

"It's very frustrating to have," he says.

"Whether someone's coming in peace to help or coming in with an attitude, having someone constantly tell you to do something has got to be frustrating."

Britney Spears Wears a White Flower

He explains that the situaiton was even more tense in the beginning.

"We kind of came together and not everybody agreed with [the conservatorship]; everyone had their own opinion like, 'Maybe we should do it this way or that way,'" Bryan says.

"But at the end, I think we made the right choice."

Britney Spears Has Lost Weight in Quarantine

He concludes by arguing that ending the conservatorship abruptly now would send Britney into a tailspim.

"She's been surrounded by a team of people since she was 15, so at what level does everyone just walk away or get reduced?" he asks the host.

He adds that Britney has never had the burden of driving herself anywhere or completing simple "everyday tasks"

Britney Spears Looks Adorable in Yellow

"I'm sure it's going to be an adjustment," he concludes.

Now, we supppose it's possible that Bryan is right -- after all, Britney is his sister and he's known her all her life.

But if the goal was to convince fans that Britney is not being held captive or treated unfairly, we'd have to call this interview a massive failure.

Britney Spears Burned Down Her Home Gym

I was never a huge fan of Britany Spears music, but I’ve become a big follower of her Instagram workout videos. It’s like watching those old early-morning workout shows ESPN used to run with Kiana Tom only way sadder because internet porn exists now.

In her latest video, Spears explains she hasn’t been in her home gym in months because she burned it down.

Hi guys, I’m in my gym right now. I haven’t been in here for, like, six months because I burned my gym down, unfortunately. I had two candles and, yeah, one thing led to another and I burned it down.

I mean, that seems like a reasonable explanation. I’ve been questioning why Britany still has a conservatorship when she’s a grown adult who seems to have made great strides in her personal life, but this answers a lot of questions. Questions like “does Britany understand how fire works?”

I mean, I’m glad everyone was safe, but you can’t just yadda yadda yadda over how you went from having two candles to having a burned-down home gym. If owning candles lead to inevitably burning your house down, Chanukah would be a much less festive holiday.

Britney Spears I Burned Down My Home Gym, But at Least I’m Still Hot!

Britney Spears has been using her platform and her resources to make quarantine more bearable for fans during this pandemic.

She has lost weight on lockdown, but not from working out extra -- because Britney accidentally burned her home gym to the ground.

"I have been quarantining since I got back from Louisiana weeks ago …." Britney revealed this week on Instagram.

"So basically," she shared, "I haven’t seen my boyfriend @samasghari in what feels like a lifetime !!!!"

A lot of people are coping with missing loved ones during this time.

"I have actually lost weight from missing him …." Britney confessed.

"Now none of my pants or shorts fit !!!!!" Britney revealed.

Some people are having the same experience, but many have taken to social media to share that the opposite is true for them.

"Guess that’s what missing someone can do  …. who else is experiencing this ????!" she asked.

In the replies, beloved Olympic athlete Gus Kenworthy joked: "I've gained enough weight for both of us!"

E! News spoke to sources and was able to confirm (to no one's surprise) that Britney and her hunky boyfriend Sam Asghari are apart.

According to their insider, the two "haven't been physically together for a few weeks now."

"She just wants to be safe in quarantine and doesn't want to risk anything," the source explains, "so she's just taking precautions."

"They are communicating daily on FaceTime," the insider adds, "[but] there isn't a timeline yet for them to reunite."

Only Britney could come up with a story more eye-catching than her clothes no longer fitting.

"It was an accident," Britney writes in the caption of a video in which she stood in her "new" home gym.

"But yes …. I burnt it down," she admitted. "I walked past the door to the gym and flames."

"BOOM !!!!!! By the Grace of God the alarm went off after that and yippy hoorah nobody got hurt," Britney expressed.

"Unfortunately," Britney continued her caption, "now I have only two pieces of equipment left lol and a one-sided mirror gym !!!!!"

"But it could be much worse," she freely acknowledged, "so I’m grateful."

"Pssss I like working out better outside anyways," Brtiney added.

She also spoke about the incident in the video that we have attached with this post, shedding further light on how it happened.

"I haven't been in here for, like, six months," Britney explained during the Instagram video.

She then added that the reason, for those who did not read her caption, was "because I burnt my gym down, unfortunately,"

"I had some candles and, yeah, one thing led to another," Britney shared.

It could potentially happen to anyone, which is why we should all be careful -- especially during this pandemic.

We are, of course, deeply relieved that Britney and her family were safe during this terrible fire.

Incidentally, there was supposed to be a hearing about her conservatorship this month.

Given the pandemic, most courthouses are closed except for emergencies, and so that hearing has been continued to another date.

Everyone hopes that, one day soon, Britney will be free of her father's control.

Britney Spears Says She’s Faster Than Usain Bolt

My name is Britney Spears, and I am the fastest woman alive. To the outside world, I’m an ordinary forensic scientist, but secretly, with the help of my friend at S.T.A.R Labs, I fight crime and find other meta-humans like me. But I became lost in time. It took everything in my friend’s power to bring me back, and in doing so our world was opened up to new threats. And I am the only one fast enough to stop them. I am the Flash.

Britney Spears just claimed to be the fastest person in the world, and by quite a bit. The current world record for the 100 meter is 9.58 seconds, held by Usain Bolt. Spear claimed to have run it in 5.97 seconds on Instagram.

She deleted the post but Page Six had the details.

“Ran my first 5 !!!!” she captioned a now-deleted screenshot of a stopwatch timer displaying 5.97 seconds. “Getting over your fear of pushing it in the beginning is key …. once I did that I hit 5 !!!!! Usually I run 6 or 7 …. my first try was 9 …. and now I did it whoop !!!!! 100 meter dash.”

Spears followed up later to say she was joking.

I don’t get the joke here. Why delete it if it was a joke? It’s like shooting someone in the shoulder and then going “haha dude, I pranked you!”

Britney Spears’s body is BANGING dude!

I saw some video of her saying she does 20 laps every morning and is getting up to 60 per day, if this is what swimming 20 laps everyday does than I am starting swimming lessons tomorrow. She’s also 38 years old and has lived off cheetos and cigarette for the last 25 years and still looks great without the facetune and photoshop that the other girls are using.

Britney’s been through a lot I’m sure being a mind controlled pawn of the industry is hard on the body, plus she had those two kids with that idiot Kevin Federline, shaved her head/had a total mental breakdown and got put on an indefinite 51/50 hold that started the whole conservatorship thing by her dad, which is still going on.

Here’s Britney looking tight, tanned and just plain sexy in her little bikini and sneakers, spreading positivity and love for the new year while thanking Mother Nature. She also mentioned she’s being doing 100 meter yard dashes. Britney is back. Bitch.

Happy New Year Britney Spears.

Jamie Lynn Spears: I’m Still Shipping Britney and Justin!

Earlier this year, Justin Timberlake was spotted holding hands with a female co-star while shooting a movie in New Orleans.

The situation presented a problem, as Timberlake's wife, Jessica Biel, was at home with the couple's 4-year-old son at the time.

Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake at the Emmys

Needless to say, the public reaction to Justin's perceived act of infidelity was not favorable.

And no one was harsher in their assessment of the situation than hardcore Britney Spears stans.

Britney fans had a field day with the allegations, arguing that Justin had a history of infidelity and had been unfaithful to Spears on numerous occasions.

There's no evidence to support those claims, but internet fan bases generally don't concern themselves with such trivial matters as facts.

Justin Timberlake on a Stage

One might think that Brit's inner circle would join those fans in delighting in Justin's marital troubles, but that doesn't seem to be the case.

On Friday, Jamie Lynn Spears posted a throwback photo that many fans have taken as a sign that she bears no ill will toward Justin.

"Nothing like childhood memories...." she captioned the pic.

The image shows a very young Jamie hanging out with Britney, Justin, and Natalie Portman hanging out in the early 2000s.

Jamie Lynn Spears Throwback

For the most part, the reponse from fans was overwhelmingly positive.

“This is the cutest thing i have seen all day," wrote actress JoAnna Garcia.

"Iconic," added Jamie's Zoey 101 costar Chris Massey.

Of course, the Britney worshippers had their say, as well, and many pointed out that Jaime did not acknowledge Justin's presence in the pic.

Jamie Lynn Spears at the CMA Awards

“Mood: not tagging Justin,” one fan wrote on Jamie’s post.

It's worth noting, however, that Natalie and Britney weren't tagged, either.

For what it's worth, the Justin-Britney beef seems to be almost entirely invented by the public.

Both parties have commented on their rocky relationship and subsequent split, but it seems there's no lingering ill will on either side.

Justin Timberlake at Halftime

“I’ve been scorned. I’ve been pissed off,” Timberlake wrote in his 2018 memoir.

He also opened up about the genesis of his famous revenge ballad.

“I wrote ‘Cry Me a River’ in two hours. I didn’t plan on writing it.," he added.

"The feelings I had were so strong that I had to write it, and I translated my feelings into a form where people could listen and, hopefully, relate to it.”

Britney Spears is Filled with Cheer

For her part, Britney rarely mentions JT, but when she does, she always makes a point of singing his praises.

“Aerosmith [frontman Steven Tyler] seems really good and bright. He’s a genius, I think. He’s very rock ’n’ roll,” Britney said when asked about her dream collaborators in a 2016 interview.

“He sings from his soul. Gwen Stefani, I think she’s great. Justin Timberlake is very good.”

Now, there's a collab that would leave Britney stans with some very confused feelings!

Kevin Federline Accuses Jamie Spears of Child Abuse

... and, just like that, Britney Spears' new hair color doesn't seem like a very big deal any longer.

Not after multiple outlets have confirmed Kevin Federline recently accused his former father-in-law of child abuse.

k fed with brit

The former professional dancer -- who was married to Spears for two years and who shares kids Sean Federline, 13, and Jayden James Federline, 12 -- with the global superstar, has filed an official police report  against Jaime Spears.

In documents obtained by The Blast, it has been reported that Kevin filed said report on August 25, the day after an alleged physical altercation between Jamie and his and Britney's oldest son, Sean.

This incident supposedly went down at Jamie's home in Ventura County while he was watching his grandkids.

According to TMZ insiders, an altercation between Jamie and Sean turned physical at one point... with Mr. Spears putting his hands on his grandson in violent fashion.

It was not by accident, either, these same insiders explain.

Sean Preston, Britney Spears, and Jayden James at Disneyland

TMZ writes that Jamie broke down a door to get to his grandson and grabbed him once he was in the room.

It's unclear at this time exactly what precipated to confrontation -- not that it matters, of course.

The action described above is wildly inappropriate and likely illegal, if the report is true.

Sources close to the investigation tell TMZ that there were no visible bruises or injuries to the 13-year old.

Nevertheless, this incident was severe enough to Federline that he reported it the next to day to the Ventura County Sheriff's Department.

While we await further details, we can at least report investigators have already interviewed witnesses and turned over their findings to the District Attorney's Office.

The district attorney is the person who will now determine if there's enough evidence against Jamie Spears to file charges.

Kevin Federline Hosts: Crazy Horse's XXXMAS Party

Spears and Federline stunned the world when they exchanged vows in 2004; they took fans by less surprise in 2006 when they filed for divorce.

This police report filing comes just days after Federline and Spears formalized a custody agreement in which Kevin will have custody of their two sons 70 percent of the time.

This has been the general arrangement for about a year, but it is now legal.

Prior to this set-up, Kevin and Britney -- who have been on very solid terms for many years -- shared custody of their kids equally.

Britney Spears Models an Off-the Shoulder White Blouse

UPDATE: As you could have guessed, this alleged altercation between Jamie and Sean took place during Britney's allotted time with the children.

We cannot say for certain where she was at the time, but she allegedly took Sean and Jayden away from their grandfather at one point and brought them back to her home. 

Federline was called later to pick them up and the boys stayed the evening of August 24 with their father.

If Jamie is charged, the crime will more than likely be considered a misdemeanor.

Britney Spears Smiles in Miami

Jamie has served as the conservator of his daughter's estate for nearly a decade.

He has often had a turbulent relationship with Federline, especially of late.

Earlier this year, Jamie and Kevin went at it in court over an increase in child support for the former DJ as he took over the majority of custody while Britney dealt with mental health issues.

Britney has not yet commented on the abuse allegations against her father.

UPDATE: Federline has been granted a restraining order against Jamie Spears.

Britney Spears Still Looks Amazing in That ‘… Baby One More Time” Outfit

It’s been over 20 years since Britney Spears debut single ‘…Baby One More Time’ was released, along with a video that gave teenage me what was basically a permanent erection that lasted sometime into my 20s. You really owe it to yourself to watch it if you’ve never seen it.

It’s not a bad song either, it’s pretty catchy.

Spears is now 37 instead of 17 and it turns out that being locked up in an asylum is just great for your figure because Britney is still wearing the iconic outfit she wore in that video.

It’s really something that she looks that good. She’s been through so much to get here: being married to a huge douche, shaving her head, being on How I Met Your Mother, going crazy after the way How I Met Your Mother ended… it was a real rollercoaster.

Britney Spears’ Father Sues to SILENCE Free Britney Bloggers

Earlier this month, Britney Spears' mom seemed to support the theory that her daughter's social media was being tampered with.

Now, Britney Spears' dad is suing one of Britney's most vocal, most visible fans for espousing that very theory.

Is he trying to shoot down lies and rumors ... or just silence critics who want to end his conservatorship and Free Britney?

Britney and Jamie Spears

TMZ reports that Jamie Spears, Britney's dad, is suing on behalf of Britney's conservatorship.

His target is Anthony Elia, the creator of the "Absolute Britney" blog -- a blog that we mentioned in a recent report, in fact.

Jamie claims that the blog defamed him by speculating that his team was deliberately hiding positive comments on Britney's social media.

Elia's theory led some to wonder if Jamie was trying to gaslight Britney to make it seem like she had no support among her own fans.

Now, Jamie has hired celebrity lawyer Larry Stein to take Elia to court for speculating about what Jamie sees as a mere hunch.

Lynne Spears weighs in on Britney Instagram conspiracy

Suing one of your daughter's most vocal fans is a hell of a choice on any day.

But what strikes us about this is that Elia has had very positive interactions with another member of the Spears family: Lynne Spears.

Just a little over a week ago, Britney's mom commented on the exact post that has now landed Elia in trouble with jamie.

She, too, had observed that sometimes positive comments seemed to vanish from Britney's Instagram.

She said that it had happened to her own, and later remarked that her words suddenly reappeared after she spoke about them publicly.

Lynne Spears

We of course have no idea if there's some IT team micromanaging Britney's comments. It may just be the algorithm.

Being sued is not, in and of itself, evidence that that Elia was uncovering the "truth."

But Lynne spoke about the same thing that Elia did, and he's now being dragged to court.

Is Jamie going to sue the mother of his children? We know that they split in 2002, but they were married for 27 years.

Because Elia didn't say much more than Lynne did on the subject, and she acknowledged that he's a genuine fan of Britney's.

Whether Elia was right on the money or totally pulling theories out of thin air, this seems like an odd target for Jamie to sue.

Britney Spears Smiles in Miami

Some fans cannot help but wonder if this conservatorship has gone on for long enough.

That, more than questions about Britney's voluntary commitment to a mental health facility earlier this year, is why cries of "Free Britney" have sprung up.

Britney's work on her mental wellness served as a reminder to her millions of fans throughout the world that she is not, well, totally free.

We're not saying that she's a damsel in distress or held against her will.

But if someone has an active conservatorship, there are aspects of their lives that are managed by other people.

Britney is 37 years old. She is an amazing mother. A lot of people 

Britney Spears Models an Off-the Shoulder White Blouse

But sometimes, fans can go overboard, even when they have only the best of intentions.

(I am a Britney stan first and a person second, so I am very much included in this)

Maybe some of the cries of "Free Britney" put more pressure on Britney when she needed a break.

Maybe the constant questions about her family cause undue stress for her and her kids without doing any real good.

Britney Spears Kisses Sam

And maybe Britney can speak up for herself if she ever needs to.

This isn't a soap opera. If Britney needed t cry for help, couldn't she ask a friend or maybe even her boyfriend Sam Asghari to do some interviews?

That doesn't mean that her most vocal and passionate fans should be silenced just for speaking about what they're perceiving.

We wonder what Lynne will have to say about Jamie firing this warning shot across her bow.

Britney Spears: Surprising Fans with an Epic Comeback Single??

It has been warned that, between her father's conservatorship and her overall well-being, Britney Spears might never perform again.

That would be tragic if true, but we of course want whatever is best for Britney.

That said ... rumor has it that she's planning to return to the music world with an impossible-to-miss single that's dropping very soon.

Britney Spears Looks Adorable in Yellow

We have to stress that this does not come from Britney Spears herself.

(Believe me, if she were speaking to me, you would know it)

We don't even know whether this rumor was started by her team as a marketing strategy ... or if there's just some bad apple trying to get people's hopes up.

But the rumor is that Britney is planning a comeback and that she's going to drop an epic single.

"Britney is back and she wants to be heard," an unconfirmed tip that we received claims. "My Own Way drops on 05.31.19."

Britney Spears in a Quiet Moment

So, if this iteration of the rumor is true, we'll know in a week -- because May 31 is only one week away.

This could be extremely exciting for millions of Britney fans.

Britney is an incredible singer, but her comeback singles are always, always the strongest.

Think about the power and impact of songs like "Womanizer" and "Work Bitch."

If history is any indication, "My Own Way" will be a smash hit.

Britney Spears Kisses Sam

This would also be welcome news as an indicator that Britney is feeling like herself and eager to keep performing.

We know that Britney is not -- and will never be -- hurting for cash, so this isn't about needing a new source of income.

This is about Britney feeling well enough to do what she loves -- bringing joy to millions through music.

It's about her freedom of expression through her career.

Setting aside selfish reasons like our desire to hear another bop from the Queen of Pop, we would love this sign that she's really, truly okay.

Britney With Sam

This is so soon after Britney's release from a mental health facility last week.

So why do we think that there's even a snowball's chance in hell that this rumor could be true?

One, she's a professional. If Ariana can drop "Thank U, Next" weeks after Pete Davidson, Britney can do this without breaking a sweat.

She could have been working on this for weeks. She may even have worked on it while she was in the facility.

(If Paris Hilton prepared for her role in Repo: The Genetic Opera while serving time in prison, Britney can write a song while getting therapy)

Two, this might be just what she's looking for to reassure fans that all is truly well.

Britney Spears in Portrait Mode

"My Own Way" could very well be a nod to the Free Britney movement started by rumors that her father locked her up against her will.

Certainly, many people are uncomfortable with the level of control that Jamie Spears exercises over his grown adult daughter.

He's had final say over basically all of her decisions for the past 11 years.

Recently, he's even filed to extend his conservatorship to other states -- Louisiana, Florida, and Hawaii.

There's much we don't know about Britney's life and her true feelings about her situation at the moment.

But there's one way that she could express all of that: through song.

Britney Spears is Free

After spending a month in a mental health facility, Britney Spears has checked herself out and gone home. So good for her.

You might remember that rumors had started to spring up that Spears was being held against her will as a part of some nefarious plot involving her conservatorship. Her mother threw gasoline on that fire by liking things on social media about it.

But Britney herself went on Instagram a few days ago to dispel those rumors.

According to TMZ, Spears problems have been due to an issue with her medication.

We broke the story … Spears checked herself out of the facility, but she’s still dealing with a big unresolved issue with her meds. Doctors are still working on the right formula for her, but call it “a work in progress.” Translation … she’s still not right because the meds are off, but they’re making progress.

See, there was a reasonable, non-conspiracy theory explanation the whole time. The only conspiracy theory that’s true is the one about the royal family being lizard people. I mean, have you seen Prince Philip? There’s no way that guy isn’t a lizard.

Is Britney out and free to go home? Well ... it's more complicated than that.

On Easter Sunday, the talented and luminous Britney Spears was spotted out in the open with hunky boyfriend Sam Asghari.

She has been in a mental health facility since late March, as she herself revealed on social media.

While fans were relieved to see her out in the open, multiple reports say that Britney's treatment is ongoing.

This is, notably, Britney's second time -- that we know of -- leaving the facility since she checked in weeks ago.

On April 11, she reportedly departed to get her hair done and later returned.

Entertainment Tonight sheds some light on what may have been the real reason that she decided on this temporary commitment.

"Britney’s career, caring for her children, and the weight of her father’s illness, has been far too much for her," the insider explains. 

"Despite taking time off from performing," the source adds. "She couldn't handle the stress."

"She needed not only down time," the insider continues. "But she decided she needed professional help."

That is largely consistent with what more reliable reports and Britney's own Instagram post have stated.

So, what is Britney's goal while she's undergoing treatment?

"She wants nothing more than to heal and feel better," the source affirms.

The insider delivers good news: "She has improved while in the facility."

"But," the source cautions, despite these strides, she is "not going home yet."

We don't know the exact date on which she entered the facility, but if it's to be for 30 days, we imagine that her departure date is already scheduled.

Britney's true loved ones are cheering her on.

"Those that love and support her say she needs to focus on herself," the insider reports.

But the source acknowledges that "it hasn’t been easy for her to be away from her children."

Britney may be known for her sensational performances and for being one of the greatest singers in human history.

She is first and foremost a first-rate mother. Sean Preston and Jayden are the center of her world.

The Blast reports that Britney used her father's illness as a cover for canceling her Domination residency in Vegas.

According to their report, Britney had been feeling overwhelmed and was working with doctors to find the right combination of meds to work.

(Remember, different people's bodies are different, so sometimes doctor's have to play guess-and-check with a patient to get it right)

There were unconfirmed claims that Britney had simply stopped taking her medication back in January.

A lot of Britney's fans found it hard to believe the allegation that she'd just decided to deliberately neglect her mental health.

Apparently, it was members of Britney's team who were loudly promoting her Domination residency when Britney's well being was in decline.

She wasn't the one who needed a reminder of good priorities -- they were.

Britney's outings and these more plausible reports also fly in the face of claims that she was forced into the facility.

When Britney and her boyfriend both posted to Instagram about her decision, some interpreted it as damage control.

As well-meaning as many fans were when they tweeted "Free Britney," we hope that she did not feel undue pressure from the movement.

Britney is entitled to seek help for her well being and she doesn't ever have to tell us more than she wants to.

We're so glad that she got to spend some time with Sam on Sunday and we hope that she's back home with her kids as soon as she's ready.

Britney Spears Checks Into Mental Health Facility Amid Father’s Health Crisis

According to TMZ, Britney Spears has checked into a mental health facility, where she will remain for the next several weeks.

Insiders say Spears checked herself into the treatment center last week after becoming increasingly distraught by her father's ongoing health issues.

Spears opened up about her father's troubles -- which include a ruptured colon that's required multiple surgeries -- in a heartfelt Instagram post back in January.

At the time, Britney stated that she would be forced to cancel the next installment of her Vegas residency in order to focus on her father's health needs:

"A couple of months ago, my father was hospitalized and almost died," the singer wrote alongside the photo below.

"We’re all so grateful that he came out of it alive, but he still has a long road ahead of him," she added.

"I had to make the difficult decision to put my full focus and energy on my family at this time. I hope you all can understand.

"I appreciate your prayers and support for my family during this time. Thank you, and love you all… always," Britney concluded.

Sources tell TMZ that Spears checked into the facility last week for a 30-day course of treatment.

It's possible she'll remain at the facility longer if she and her doctors consider it necessary.

Despite some occasional turbulence, Britney and her dad, Jamie Spears, have enjoyed a close relationship for most of her life.

Britney Spears' Daddy

Jamie was famously placed in charge of Britney's conservatorship after her infamous 2007 breakdown.

Insiders say he still holds a tremendous amount of influence over his daughter's life and career.

Spears has not gone public with her decision to seek treatment, but on Wednesday afternoon, she posted a meme about the importance of self-care on her Instagram page.

Britney captioned the image below, "We all need to take time for a little 'me time.'"

A source close to the singer spoke with People magazine about Spears' decision to undergo treatment.

“Britney just needed to focus on herself," the insider says.

It seems those closest to Britney want fans to know that she has not suffered another breakdown, and her decision to seek help was reached calmly and rationally:

“Her dad being sick has taken a toll on her,” the source continues.

Jamie Spears and Britney

“He nearly died and actually had another surgery a few weeks ago. He’s not doing well.

"They’re so close and it has been a lot. There is nothing dramatic going on with her — she just realized she needs to make sure to take time to care for herself.”

We wish Britney and her family all the best during this difficult time.

We'll have further updates on this on this developing story as more information becomes available.

Britney Spears Postpones Tour in Wake of Family Medical Crisis

Due to a personal crisis, Britney Spears has been forced to put her professional life on hold.

The beloved pop star informed her social media followers on Friday that she must place her scheduled tour on hiatus due to the condition of her father, Jamie.

Britney Spears Throwback

“I don’t even know where to start with this, because this is so tough for me to say,” said Britney as a caption to the throwback photo above of herself and her parents.

She continued:

“I will not be performing my new show Domination. I’ve been looking forward to this show and seeing all of you this year, so doing this breaks my heart.

However, it’s important to always put your family first… and that’s the decision I had to make.

"A couple of months ago, my father was hospitalized and almost died. We’re all so grateful that he came out of it alive, but he still has a long road ahead of him."

Jamie Spears, sources have confirmed, suffered a rupture colon a little while back.

Concluded Spears in her message:

I had to make the difficult decision to put my full focus and energy on my family at this time. I hope you all can understand. More information on ticket refunds is available on britneyspears.com.

I appreciate your prayers and support for my family during this time. Thank you, and love you all… always.

The artist also pointed folks to her official website, britneyspears.com for more information.

Additionally, “Refunds are available at original point of purchase,” reads a statement from the singer “For more information please contact Ticketmaster customer service at 800-745-3000."

Following his daughter's breakdown back in 2008, Jamie has been her conservator.

He has been in charge of her finances and has played a major role in her life for a decade now; not counting actually raising her and everything as well, of course.

According to this statement, he "28 days in the hospital" after his colon ruptured "under the care of the amazing doctors, nurses and staff at the hospital, [which] the Spears family credits with saving his life.

"After a long, complicated post-operative period, he is recuperating at home and gaining strength, and is expected to make a full recovery."

We're so glad to read that last part at least.

Jamie also has children Bryan Spears, 41, and Jamie Lynn Spears, 27, with Britney’s mom, Lynne.

The couple divorced in 2002 after nearly three decades of marriage, but reconciled in 2010.

Following her wildly successful Vegas show, Britney: Piece of Me, over the summer, Britney was planning a return to the stage with Domination.

The superstar's first Sin City residency grossed over $100 million in ticket sales as of January 2017 and has been seen by over 700,000 fans. She's still got it, that's for sure.

We'll now keep her dad and her family in our thoughts.

Britney Spears Gives Father Cash Bonus For Keeping Her Off Drugs

These days, Britney Spears has attained full-blown icon status and been granted admission into the pantheon of pop gods alongside Madonna and Michael Jackson.

But it wasn't all that long ago that it looked as though Spears was headed for the kind of tragic flameout that's all too common among stars who hit the big time while still in their teens.

Britney's 2007 meltdown is the stuff of legend, and enough time has gone by that it's easy to laugh at the shaved head and the umbrella-wielding attack on the paparazzi.

But the fact remains that all that erratic behavior was fueled by very real pain and mental illness -- and serious indulgence in a wide array of substances.

These days, Spears is a sober and responsible mother and a consummate entertainer, still capable of wowing diehard fans on a nightly basis with her acclaimed Las Vegas residency.

It's wonderful that she's been able to move on from her harrowing past, but those who helped her through that difficult time are eager to ensure that she never forgets it.

And it seems there are two reasons that they want her to remain forever mindful -- so that she doesn't go down that road again, and so that she remains grateful to the ones who helped bring her back from the brink.

According to a new report published today by Radar Online, several members of Team Britney appeared in a Las Vegas courtroom today where a judge determined they were owed large sums of money by Spears' estate in exchange for their services to the singer.

Britney Spears Is in the Best Shape of Her Life

As you may recall, Britney was placed under a conservatorship in order to protect her from herself following her breakdown.

Since it seems to be working out for her, the arrangement has remained in place for over a decade.

And today, Britney's father, Jamie Spears, and a "co-conservator" named Andrew Wallet were compensated to the tune of $426,000 for their roles in keeping Brit on the straight and narrow.

Britney Spears is a Boss

According to documents obtained by Radar, Jamie and Andrew argued that they provided “stability and leadership” to Britney and helped keep “literally hundreds of people in check.”

Now, bringing stability and keeping people in check are pretty vague boasts, but Jamie and Andrew's lawyers went on to provide some specifics:

“By way of example, and not by way of limitation, at the planning stages of the Circus Tour, the Declarant instructed entertainment counsel to spread the risk of the Conservatee failing to fulfill her duties on tour because of some third party providing illegal substances,” they claimed.

“The financial stakes were high, and failure was not an option.”

That's legalese for "Jamie and Andrew kept Britney off drugs so that she could continue making a whole lot of money."

Andrew argues that he righted the ship of Britney's career multiple times, including at the start of her Vegas residency, when she was apparently quite vulnerable:

"At the beginning of the conservatorship, the estate was nearly out of fund and cash equivalents,” Wallet said in the affidavit.

“The estate and person of the conservative were in total chaos with tremendous liabilities. The problems were of epic proportions over a period of years.

"Extraordinary skills have been employed by all in order to achieve the results enjoyed at the present time. Petitioner has had many months at a time where all of his professional time was spent in services rendered exclusively to the conservative.”

Again, it's a lot of legal mumbo-jumbo, but there's much to be learned here.

For example, like every recovering addict, Britney is never out of the woods and relies heavily on the support of those around her.

Also, being one of the supportive people around her is apparently quite a lucrative endeavor.
