For over a decade, a movement has been growing in response to what many initially believed was simply a conspiracy regarding one of the world’s most famous pop stars. To imagine that Britney Spears, one of the most well-known names on the planet, could be trapped in plain sight for so long seemed impossible, though others continued to petition for her autonomy over her hard-earned finances and her life at large with the hashtag #FreeBritney. But that alleged “conspiracy” turned out to have chilling truth to it, as her father Jamie and the others responsible for the conservatorship had crossed serious lines in the pop star's life and controlled her finances and personal affairs while still putting her to work. 

Now, Britney is starting to tell the story in her own words. In a since-made-private bombshell 22-minute audio clip shared to YouTube on August 28, the singer opened up further about the conservatorship and stated, “I get nothing out of sharing all of this. I have offers to do interviews with Oprah and so many people [for] lots and lots of money, but it’s insane. I don’t want any of it. For me, it’s beyond a sit-down proper interview," Page Six reports.

She shared her anger towards her family, and said, "They literally killed me. They threw me away,” Spears said. “I felt like my family threw me away … I was a machine. I was a f–king machine, not even human almost. It was insane.” She also reiterated her previous claims of being forced into a mental health facility in 2019 because she objected to a dance move in rehearsal, of having her phone tapped when she tried to get a lawyer, and of being “honestly more angry” with her mother Lynne than Jamie because Lynne never spoke up for her daughter. Britney also shared that she was once in a “secret relationship” with an unnamed man and they'd had a plan to leave the country, but her biggest fear was, "What would my dad do if I did do something wrong? What if they found me?" 

Suffice it to say, her experience was worse than anyone imagined. Thankfully, Britney was finally heard in 2021 and was released from the conservatorship on November 12. However, the story doesn't end there.  Click through to read everything you need to know about the conservatorship, from how it began to where it ends. Buckle in: it's a bumpy ride.
