Elon Musk backs Britney Spears and tweets “Free Britney”
Popstar Britney Spears has been under full guardianship of her father Jamie Spears since his split around 12 years ago. Fans of the pop star have asked her father to release Britney. The latest backing comes from billionaire and Tesla CEO Elon Musk.
Britney Spears, 39, had recently requested her release from “abusive guardianship” which was placed about 12 years ago. In 2008, the court gave guardianship to Britney Spears’ father and then court-appointed lawyer Andrew Wallet. The decision was made after multiple mental health issues.
American singer and songwriter Britney Spears reportedly called 911 to report abuse of guardianship one night before presenting her testimony in court.
On June 23, she phoned a downtown Los Angeles courtroom, to speak publicly about the guardianship for the first time, expressing her desire for it to be terminated.
“It is my wish and my dream that this will all end. I want my life back. I really believe this guardianship is abusiveâ¦ I want to end the guardianship without being assessed. I want to petition to end the guardianship “, Spears told Judge Brenda Penny.
