On Netflix, a documentary on Britney Spears gets its first look. The streaming service debuted the first official trailer and poster for the highly anticipated documentary on Britney Spears’ life and her well-publicized conservatorship, in which she has had no control over her own estate or other aspects of her life since 2008. A court will award a conservatorship to someone who is unable to make decisions for themselves due to physical or mental limitations. The documentary will be available for viewing on September 28.
The teaser features Spears’ evidence from June when she spoke in a Los Angeles courtroom in an attempt to end her conservatorship.
Different people’s voices added their opinions and observations regarding the conservatory and the singer’s life as the video continued. “Britney had a fear that her family would break in and steal everything,” one woman said.
“What was going on inside the conservatorship, and why was she still in one if she was ‘OK?” another woman wondered. One said, “Britney made a lot of money for other people.”
Netflix released a trailer for the documentary helmed by Erin Lee Carr on Tuesday. In 2009, Spears emailed a lawyer an 18-second communication, which was included in the story.
Outside a court hearing on Britney Spears’ case, fans carry signs in support of the pop star. A conservatorship will be held at the Stanley Mosk Courthouse in Los Angeles on March 17, 2021.
Her father, Jamie Spears, has been in control of her conservatorship from the start. He filed a petition to dissolve it earlier this month after a long legal struggle and a tremendous push from fans on social media and in person at the courts with the #FreeBritney movement.
After the New York Times aired a documentary called “Framing Britney Spears,” which examined Spears’ life and conservatorship, the #FreeBritney movement gathered a lot of support in February.
Spears reportedly admitted in March that she watched parts of the documentary, which made her cry for two weeks. Spears has been fighting her conservatorship for years, and she was finally able to speak to the court directly in June. Her father has filed a petition to stop the arrangement, which may be coming to an end shortly.
Spears announced her engagement to her longtime boyfriend, Sam Asghari, on Instagram a few days after her father filed the court documents.
