Back in February, a New York Times-produced documentary about Britney Spears shed new light on the signer’s struggle for freedom and earned her thousands of new sympathizers.
Now, a very different film about Spears appears to be having the opposite effect.
The Battle For Britney is a BBC documentary which focuses less on Britney’s current plight and more on the circumstances that led her family to seek complete control over the life of a wildly successful grown woman.
The Battle For Britney filmmakers report that when Britney’s father, Jamie Spears, was seeking a conservatorship that would grant him far-reaching powers over his daughter’s life and finances, he filled out a form in which he claimed that the reason for his request was “dementia placement or treatment.”
Obviously, that’s a shocking claim, and if Britney has been undergoing treatment for dementia all these years, then her story is even more tragic than we realized.
“There’s only two options with that. Britney might have dementia,” says journalist Mobeen Azhar who appears in the film.
“Now I’m not a doctor but if that’s the case, then the world isn’t aware of that. But the other option is actually more sinister,” Azhar adds.
Britney mostly remains quiet about the media’s coverage of her life.
This might be by choice, but it’s widely rumored that Spears is essentially being held captive and is unable to communicate freely with the public.
Whatever the case, the latest doc about Britney earned a rare condemnation from the pop icon.
Of course, she worded her complaint in the sort of lighthearted, non-confrontational manner that fans have come to expect.
“So many documentaries about me this year with other people’s takes on my life,” Spears wrote on Instagram on Monday.
“What can I say … I’m deeply flattered!!!! These documentaries are so hypocritical … they criticize the media …read more
