4:33 p.m. PT The video has now been moved to private, and the tweet promoting it has been deleted. We’ve seen it all though, and it’s a doozy. Time will tell if it re-uploaded or if parts of it were captured prior to removal.
Britney SpearsThe story is totally worth it — but she’s giving up her payday to sit down and talk about her reality… and instead does a 20-minute impromptu YouTube dump.
The singer posted a 22-minute clip on the video platform Sunday out of nowhere, and if you watch it – you’ll see that she pours her guts out about the whole thing…with a particular focus on exactly how the guardianship started and what she remembers during those many years.
BS begins by saying that she thinks a lot on her mind, and notes that while she has been offered lucrative deals for exclusive interviews – such as with operafor example – she says she finds this concept “irrelevant” and apparently thinks selling your story that way is cliched.
Instead, she gives it straight to people… She dives into how things started when they were escalating in the mid-2000s. She says when the guardianship started, she didn’t understand why… But all of a sudden, her father was running the show and he was very controlling. Britney claims to have told her, “I’m Britney Spears and I make the decision.”
She also says that a woman presented the idea to Jimmy, and that her mother helped him continue. Britney calls it “pure abuse” and recounts that she was held on a stretcher while paparazzi and helicopters scoured her platforms the day she was placed in a psych ward.
Speaking of points, this Britney says of her infamous episode… “It was just how crazy I played stalking with the paparazzi, which to this day remains one of the most fun things I’ve done about fame.” She says she doesn’t know what’s harmful about that.
She goes on to describe what it was like to work under guardianship, and it sounds miserable. Britney says she felt like a robot who was under her father’s direct control.
Britney says that after her Vegas residency ended in 2017, a new show was in the works… and she says that when she was rehearsing, she defended herself about a particular dance move — saying she simply expressed her preference. Afterwards, she said, she was taken away to a facility, under the guise of seeking treatment and worrying about her father’s health.
While she was there, Britney says she was treated pretty hard…this is after she claimed her father threatened her with a major legal battle that he apparently lost.
Britney says this has been a particularly dark chapter for her, and Britney clearly resents her family for putting her through it – especially her mother, who she says turned a blind eye to her. Remember that photos from that specific period showed that Britney appears unusual, when her husband was now Sam Asghari let it out A little around Easter time.
Britney describes more of the conditions she was placed on during her guardianship…including absolute control over what she eats, where she can be, her schedule, her company, everything.
Around this time — 2019/2020, when the #FreeBritney movement was in full swing — Britney says she finally felt confident enough to take control of her life and try to break out of guardianship. She even shouts out the #FreeBritny protesters who supported her.
Britney says she believes Jamie and her partners. I thought she’d crawl back and get into the cycle she’s been in for years, but instead…BS says she got a lawyer and stuck to her position, refusing to fall back into their clutches and try to take back the reins of her life.
It’s a long confession, but Britney gets into it all here…more than we can write about in this post. As we all know, Britney was eventually freed from custody – and now, she’s telling her story on her own terms. And we’re sure it’s not over yet either.
