Britney has been under her father's conservatorship since 2008, following hospitalisation for her declining mental health. While the court ruled that the conservatorship was supposed to be temporary, it was made permanent that December with Britney still under her father's control 13 years later.
More recently in August 2020, the singer said she no longer wanted her father to be in control of her conservatorship, asking that he be removed as the co-conservator of her estate in November 2020. She even went as far to say that she would no longer be performing while he was in control of her career.
The #FreeBritney movement was launched almost a decade ago by fans at the time who were wholeheartedly convinced that the singer herself also wants to be free from the legal binding, utilizing social media to bring awareness to the discrepancies surrounding the conservatorship.
We can't wait for this one!
