BEVERLY HILLS, CA – Honoree Britney Spears accepts the Vanguard Award onstage at the 29th Annual GLAAD Media Awards at the Beverly Hilton Hotel on April 12, 2018 in Beverly Hills, California.
Just days after deleting her Instagram account, Britney Spears took to YouTube to address fans directly and tell her side of her conservatorship story. She pointed out that she could have sold her story to any number of outlets, including Oprah Winfrey. But, she said, the idea of doing so seemed “sticky” to her. She has since deleted the video, but it was downloaded and shared by unauthorized accounts.
As she has often done lately, she called her family and said she felt she had been abandoned in the midst of her guardianship. “They literally killed me. I got dumped… she was performing for thousands of people at night in Las Vegas. I was a machine. I was a fucking machine, not even a human. It was crazy.
She repeated her claim that she was forced into a mental health facility in 2019 after an argument over a dance move at one of her rehearsals. At the facility, she says that she was forced to undress in front of others. She also said that she was forced to attend therapy sessions that she described as “militant.”
She revealed that during her conservatorship, she had a “secret relationship” with an unidentified man. “I was talking to a guy and he just wanted to leave the country with me. We had everything ready to go, and it was a secret relationship.”
Spears also noted that despite everything that has happened between her and her father, Jamie Spears, she is angrier at her mother: “I feel like I could have gotten myself a lawyer in literally two seconds.” She added: “My friend helped me get one in the end, but every time he put me in touch with a company, my phone was tapped and they took it away from me.”
He also questioned his faith. “How the hell did they get away with it?” [it]? How is there a God? It is Is there a God? Last week, she also tweeted about his faith, saying, “I pray that there really is truth in the Holy Spirit and I hope that spirit is with my children as well.”
Spears concluded by saying, “I am sharing this because I want people to know that I am only human. I feel victimized after these experiences, and how can I fix this if I don’t talk about it? I have an amazing song right now with one of the brightest men of our time and I’m so thankful,” referring to her new song “Hold Me Closer” with Elton John. “But if you’re an introverted weirdo like me, who gets lonely most of the time, and you needed to hear a story like this to not feel lonely, listen to this: My life has been far from easy and you’re not alone. .”
On a lighter note, he also posted a video on his Twitter account, check it out below.
