Spears had been living under a court-ordered conservatorship placed by her father, Jamie Spears, since 2007. Although the singer continued to work, tour and have a residency in Las Vegas, the conservatorship remained in place. Rumors spread among fans that the pop star was a ward against her will, sparking the «#FreeBritney» movement. In the summer of 2021, Spears told a judge that her guardians forced her to work. Later, Spears offered public testimony about conservatorship of her for the first time. “I have been in shock. I’m traumatized,» Spears said. «I just want my life back.»
Other than testimony at her court dates, the most information about her conservatorship that Spears has given her fans was last summer at a 22 minute audio message where he gave his side of the story, making explosive claims against his family. “They literally killed me,” she said. “They threw me. That’s what I felt, I felt like my family had thrown me away.»

Having lived most of her life in the public eye, Spears will have a lot to say about her highly documented life, even long before her conservatorship.
