Britney Spears, the pop icon who rose to fame in the late ’90s, has been making headlines once again due to her alleged life of “virtual isolation.” Despite being married to Sam Asghari, sources revealed in the TMZ documentary that Spears leads a life of loneliness and engages in unusual activities to combat it.
According to TMZ executive producer Charles Latibeaudiere, Spears would often drive “aimlessly” in Los Angeles, with news director Brad Appleton adding that “sometimes she’ll drive to a quiet dirt path, park, and just kind of meditate.” When she’s not driving, Spears would reportedly “binge sleep” or sleep for three straight days and “won’t sleep at all for the next few.” And as her Instagram followers would know, Spears also posts dance covers on her socials, which sources claim is another way of coping. “Dancing alone at home is the centerpiece of Britney’s life,” they said.
The documentary also revealed that Spears is under a conservatorship, a legal guardianship that was put in place in 2008 after the singer’s public breakdown. The conservatorship gives her father, Jamie Spears, control over her finances and personal life. Spears has been fighting to end the conservatorship for years, and her case has gained widespread attention from fans and celebrities alike.
Not one to let others control her narrative, Spears quickly refuted the statements, writing on Instagram that she has an aversion to coffee that she “can’t even look at it” after years of being told that she can’t have it. She also “never stays up late” with Red Bull and called it “absolutely the worst drink ever.” As for dancing? She previously dished that she has no plans of stopping, and she’s doing it to compensate for the fact that she won’t be on stage anytime soon. “If you don’t like what you see, unfollow me !!!” she wrote. “if you don’t want to see my precious a** dancing in my living room or it’s not up to your standards … go read a f***ing book!!!!!”
The documentary has sparked concern among fans and advocates who believe that Spears is being mistreated under the conservatorship. The #FreeBritney movement, which started in 2019, has gained momentum in recent months, with fans protesting outside the courthouse during her conservatorship hearings. The movement aims to bring attention to the alleged abuse and control that Spears has been subjected to under the conservatorship.
Spears’ case has also shone a light on the issue of conservatorship abuse, with many people sharing their own stories of being placed under similar legal guardianships. The conservatorship system has been criticized for its lack of transparency and accountability, with some experts calling for reform.
As the world continues to watch and speculate about Spears’ life, it’s clear that the singer is still fighting for her freedom and control over her own life. Whether she’ll be successful in ending the conservatorship remains to be seen, but one thing is for sure: Britney Spears is not a woman to be underestimated.
