Britney Spears shared a 22-minute voice note over the weekend, where she surfaced some new allegations about the way she was treated during her 13-year conservatorship. The post has since been deleted, but here’s everything we know about the lengthy audio clip.
On August 28, the 40-year-old pop star posted a since-deleted clip to YouTube that highlighted new claims about the ways the conservatorship controlled several facets of her life, according to Global News.
Spears had been put into a conservatorship on February 1, 2008 by her father, Jamie Spears and lawyer, Andrew M. Wallet. In August of last year, Jamie finally agreed to step down as the conservator of Britney’s estate after a lengthy legal battle.
Throughout the deleted clip, Britney Spears detailed allegations about the distressing ways her father asserted power in the controversial conservatorship, and even said it was “pure abuse” and “all premeditated.”
In the message, Spears reportedly claimed that her father initiated the conservatorship after she used “a British accent to a doctor to prescribe my medication … three days later there was a SWAT team in my home, three helicopters.”
“I haven’t even really shared even half of it,” Spears said of the conservatorship. “I think the main thing I do remember when I first started was my dad’s control. He loved to control everything I did.”
The pop artist’s father, Jamie, has yet to respond publicly to the allegations.
Spears, on the other hand, explained that the “extent of my madness” came from “playing chase with the paparazzi, which is still to this day one of the most fun things I did about being famous, so I don’t know what was so harmful about that.”
The “Stronger” singer also says that her father controlled her body image, claiming she was “told I was fat every day” during the conservatorship.
“They made me feel like nothing,” Spears added. “And I went along with it because I was scared. I knew in the deepest, deepest part of my core. I knew I’d done nothing wrong and I didn’t deserve the way I’d been treated.”
