Fit: Spears remains in a legal battle over her conservatorship with her father Jamie Spears
The doc detailed the Oops!… I Did It Again singer’s portrayal in the media for more than two decades, and the ongoing #FreeBritney movement from her fans amid legal battles over her conservatorship with her father Jamie Spears.
Insiders told Us that the circle around the Toxic artist, who is mom to teen sons Preston, 15, and Jayden, 14, with her ex-husband Kevin Federline, had mixed feelings about the documentary.
‘The likes of her dad and others in the conservatorship are far from happy about it, obviously, because they feel it’s another example of them being painted as money-grabbing villains when all they’re doing – so they say – is trying to help Britney run her life and stay in a safe place,’ the source said. ‘But there are growing numbers of people who think it’s high time this extremely sad and confusing story was aired and it’s a positive step in the right direction.’
