Why is Britney under conservatorship?

Britney was put under conservatorship following her very public breakdown in 2008. Following a year of seemingly erratic behavior—such as shaving her head and attacking a paparazzo's car with an umbrella—the singer was put under a "5150 hold" in a psychiatric hospital for a mental health evaluation.

Nick Kroll Calls Out Rep. Matt Gaetz for Using Britney Spears

TMZ 19 July, 2021 - 11:00am

Nick was guest hosting "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" Friday night, and in his monologue he went off on Rep. Gaetz ... or as he put it last night, "Florida congressman and human piece of s**t."

Like many others, Nick seemed flabbergasted as to why Gaetz was outside the L.A. courthouse Wednesday during Britney's latest conservatorship hearing -- especially because Gaetz has much bigger, and personal, fish to fry at the moment.

Kroll said, "I just love that the guy who's been accused of sex trafficking a minor is suddenly an advocate for troubled children getting less supervision."

ICYMI ... Gaetz grabbed a mic during the #FreeBritney rally Wednesday and tore into conservatorships, in general, and Britney's dad, specifically. He fired up Britney's supporters by saying, "One thing that we can all agree on is that Jamie Spears is a dick."

The crowd ate it up, but Kroll's point is, considering Gaetz's current legal situation ... he's an odd cheerleader for Britney. The congressman is currently under federal investigation for allegedly paying or gifting underage girls for sexual encounters, and taking them across state lines.

While it's fair to question the Florida congressman's motives for flying to L.A. to get some face time -- the reality is he's been on the #FreeBritney bandwagon for months now. We got him back in March on Capitol Hill, and he went on a rant about wanting Britney to testify for Congress about conservatorship abuse.

We reached out to Gaetz's attorney, Marc Mukasey, to see if he had any response to Kroll's monologue. He declined to comment.

Britney Spears says she was upset by sister Jamie Lynn performing her music in latest Instagram post: 'My so-called support system hurt me deeply'

Yahoo Entertainment 19 July, 2021 - 11:00am

The pop icon took to social media to write a lengthy post in which she declared "I quit!!!" The comments referred to the criticism she received for sharing posts of her performing in her living room on social media instead of returning to the stage in Las Vegas. 

"For those of you who choose to criticize my dancing videos... look I'm not gonna be performing on any stages anytime soon with my dad handling what I wear, say, do or think," wrote Spears. "I've done that for the past 13 years... I'd much rather share videos YES from my living room instead of onstage in Vegas.

"I'm not gonna put on heavy makeup and try try try on stage again and not be able to do the real deal with remixes of my songs for years and begging to put my new music in my show for MY fans," she continued in a lengthy post. "So I quit !!!!" 

Spears also explained why she's upset with younger sister Jamie Lynn Spears.

"I don't like that my sister showed up at an awards show and performed MY SONGS to remixes!!!!!" wrote Spears in an apparent reference to her sister's participation in a medley of Spears hits during the 2017 Radio Disney Music Awards. "My so-called support system hurt me deeply!!!!"

She went on to say that the conservatorship she's been under for over a decade "killed my dreams." 

"All I have is hope and hope is the only thing in this world that is very hard to kill, yet people still try," wrote Spears. "I didn't like the way the documentaries bring up humiliating moments from the past... I'm way past all that and have been for a long time. And for women who say it's weird the way I still have hope for fairy tales ... go f*** yourself. As I said, hope is all I have right now. People try to kill hope because hope is one of the most vulnerable and fragile things there is."

In response to her post, a flurry of celebrities and fans alike voiced their support for Spears. 

"Yes live your life beautiful!" said Paris Hilton. "You deserve your happiness!" 

Actress Selma Blair also voiced her support, writing, "Perfectly said." Later, she followed it up with "I love you. And this. I love watching you on your terms."

Rosie O'Donnell also spoke out to praise Spears, saying "I'm so proud of u for speaking up for urself — I love you." 

"I'm with you darlin' I'll build the Legos," said singer Pink, referring to Spears' Instagram photo that advised her critics to "step on Legos."

Additional support came in from stars like Tess Holliday, January Jones, Snooki, Ilana Glazer and Addison Rae.

The statement came just hours after Jamie Lynn Spears took to social media herself, announcing that she is “stable” after her sister's allegations that her family and friends were simply supporting her to save face.

In a July 17 Instagram Story, Jamie Lynn wrote that she is “feeling solid, stable and still on this beautiful Saturday," Yahoo Entertainment previously reported. In a second post, she wrote, “God is all around.”

The declaration came just hours after Britney took to Instagram again to criticize the people “closest” to her, saying that those are the ones “who never showed up."

“There’s nothing worse than when the people closest to you who never showed up for you post things in regard to your situation whatever it may be and speak righteously for support. There’s nothing worse than that,” Spears wrote, Yahoo Entertainment previously reported. “How dare the people you love the most say anything at all… did they even put a hand out to even lift me up at the TIME !!!??? How dare you make it public that NOW you CARE… did you put your hand out when I was drowning ????” 

Spears did not address the note to a specific person, but commenters were quick to associate the post Jamie Lynn's recently posted video showing support for Spears.

When the gunshots started to echo all around Nationals Park, San Diego Padres star shortstop Fernando Tatis Jr. quickly thought about the team's family members and friends in the seats. Tatis bolted from the bench down the left field line Saturday night, helped open a gate to the stands and began ushering a group back to the dugout for shelter. The top half of the sixth inning in the game between the Padres and Washington Nationals had just ended in front of about 33,000 fans when several shots were heard on South Capitol Street, just outside the third-base side of the stadium.

Facebook on Saturday defended itself against U.S. President Joe Biden's assertion that the social media platform is "killing people" by allowing misinformation about coronavirus vaccines to proliferate, saying the facts tell a different story. "The data shows that 85% of Facebook users in the US have been or want to be vaccinated against COVID-19," Facebook said in a corporate blog post by Guy Rosen, a company vice president. COVID-19 misinformation has spread during the pandemic on social media sites including Facebook, Twitter and Alphabet Inc-owned YouTube.

Britney Spears on Saturday said she would not perform again while her father retains control over her career, and said the conservatorship she has been under for 13 years had "killed my dreams." Her remarks, in a lengthy Instagram post, were the latest in a series of emotional public comments about the conservatorship that controls her personal and financial affairs and which she has begged to be brought to an end. The pop star's father, Jamie Spears, has sole control of his daughter's $60 million estate under the court-appointed conservatorship that he set up in 2008.
