Mariah Carey, Halsey & More Show Love for Britney Spears After Court Hearing

Britney Spears publicly addressed the court Wednesday (June 23) with an incredibly harrowing account of her controversial conservatorship, and her Hollywood peers came out to voice their continued support for the #FreeBritney movement.

During the hearing in Los Angeles, the 39-year-old superstar revealed some of the extreme expectations placed on her since the conservatorship began in 2008, when her father, Jamie Spears, was given full control over his daughter’s financial and personal affairs. During her public statement, the singer likened her conservatorship to sex trafficking with how much she was being forced to work, how closely she was monitored, and how she’s not allowed to get married or have a baby because of her birth control that she’s not allowed to remove.

“I am not here to be anyone’s slave,” she stated.

The New York Times documentary Framing Britney Spears, which was released in February, shed light on the conservatorship and gained a lot of A-list support from Kacey Musgraves, Hayley Williams, Vanessa Carlton, Sam Smith, Hayley Kiyoko, Liz Phair and many more at the time.

Planned Parenthood Reacts to Britney Spears’ IUD Allegation: ‘Your Reproductive Health Is Your Own’

After Britney Spears alleged in a court hearing that her conservatorship says she's unable to remove her implanted IUD and have more children, Planned Parenthood released a statement of support.

Planned Parenthood Reacts to Britney Spears’ IUD Allegation: ‘Your Reproductive Health Is Your Own’

Among dozens of shocking allegations made by Britney Spears during a Los Angeles Superior Court hearing on Wednesday (June 23), one of the most disturbing was the fact that the pop star said she wants her implanted IUD birth control device removed so she can have more kids and has been told she could not.

“I want to be able to get married and have a baby,” Spears told Judge Brenda Penny during a 20-minute-plus public statement in opposition to the conservatorship she’s been under for the past 13 years. “I was told right now in the conservatorship, I’m not able to get married or have a baby. I have an IUD inside of myself right now so I don’t get pregnant. I wanted to take the IUD out so I could start trying to have another baby. But this so-called team won’t let me go to the doctor to take it out because they don’t want me to have any more children.”

Spears is the mother of two boys with ex-husband Kevin Federline: 15-year-old Sean Preston and 14-year-old Jayden James. In addition to Federline, Spears was briefly married to a childhood friend named Jason Alexander. She is currently dating actor Sam Asghari.

Late Wednesday, Planned Parenthood Federation of America president and CEO Alexis McGill Johnson released a statement in support of Spears and her freedom to expand her family, saying the organization stands in “solidarity” with the star.

“It is incredibly distressing to hear the trauma that Britney Spears has been through — including the appalling news that she has not been able to remove her own IUD,” the statement reads. “We stand in solidarity with Britney and all women who face reproductive coercion. Your reproductive health is your own — and no one should make decisions about it for you. Every person should have the ability to make their own decisions about their bodies and exercise bodily autonomy.”

The Women’s March also tweeted a statement of support for Spears on Wednesday, writing, “Everyone deserves to be able to make their own choices: for their bodies, for their health, for their lives. We support you, Britney, and all women escaping abusive and controlling situations.”
