Watch: Britney Spears’ Brother Praises Singer’s Conservatorship As ‘The Right Choice’ For The Family

Published: Friday 24th Jul 2020 by Rashad

As the #FreeBritney social media campaign continues to pick up steam thanks to the attention brought to Britney Spears‘ latest conservatorship hearing on July 22 (which was ultimately postponed due to hackers interrupting the virtual Zoom meeting), people closest to the legal matter are speaking out – namely the GRAMMY winner’s siblings.

First, her younger sister Jamie Lynn made headlines this week as she praised the singer for being a ‘badass, unstoppable woman,’ but was careful to avoid making comments about her mental health.

Now, their brother – Bryan Spears – is weighing in and dishing on how the family is dealing with the media hoopla surrounding the conservatorship.

More inside:


 

Recently taking to the ‘As Not Seen on TV’ podcast, Bryan opened up about why he thinks the conservatorship has been a “great thing for [the] family” – despite acknowledging the singer herself has “always wanted to get out of [the conservatorship].”

“It’s very frustrating to have. Whether someone’s coming in peace to help or coming in with an attitude, having someone constantly tell you to do something has got to be frustrating,” he said.

In place since 2008, the court-ordered conservatorship calls for an appointee to control everything from aspects of Brit’s personal life to her finances.

“We kind of came together and not everybody agreed with [the conservatorship]; everyone had their own opinion like, ‘Maybe we should do it this way or that way,'” Bryan described of the conservatorship’s origins. “But at the end, I think we made the right choice.”

 

Elsewhere in the conversation, Bryan was quizzed on his thoughts about the singer’s fans – affectionately called the #BritneyArmy – and their ongoing #FreeBritney campaign.

“I am aware that [fans] feel like maybe she’s being confined or held against her will in some capacity, but I can’t really speak for them,” he shared.

Finally, while certain the judge over the next hearing will ‘make an adjustment’ in Britney’s favor, he has concerns about her ability to completely care for herself.

“She’s been surrounded by a team of people since she was 15, so at what level does everyone just walk away or get reduced?” he asked, claiming that Britney has never had to drive herself anywhere or complete simple “everyday tasks” for much of her life.

    Everyone in the family benefits from the conservatorship, so why would any of them want it to end? Just sad. They’re all using her as a cash cow and won’t even let her speak out allegedly. We won’t stop saying #FreeBritney until we hear from Britney PUBLICLY that she is okay with the conservatorship. Not in a caption allegedly written by her team under a video of her dancing. We want to hear Britney Jean Spears SPEAK about the conservatorship! Why won’t they let her!!! #FreeBritney

      Well we know she’s not ok with it, he said that in the interview. Just to think that this woman has been under these restraints for 12 years explains a lot about her performance abilities. She hasn’t been able to Evolve/grow because she lock away in bubble. She can’t have friends & do as she’s pleases it so sad & I feel bad for ever judging her. The woman was being threatened to have her kids take away if she contest

        And that’s allegedly what they did. Her brother said they haven’t seen her boys in a long time. Just terrible. Money brings out the worst in people, but to do this to your own daughter? That’s just terrible. I love Britney and hope she finds peace, happiness, and gets her freedom. Her father is an alcoholic allegedly and they all need to be investigated imo

        She should be able to do whatever she wants with her money. If she chooses to spend it and lose it all, that’s her prerogative. No one should be making decisions for her. If she spends all her money and goes off the rails.. that’s her journey. The most upsetting thing about this is she is not in control of her journey and life discovery. I don’t think anyone wishes her to return to music, she’s obviously imo been burnt out a long time ago. Why do human beings believe other human beings should live a certain way? Money. If she was broke I doubt this arrangement would still be in place. I really hope she gets control back in her life because as an onlooker it’s traumatic. Her videos are obviously staged with a fake narrative by her minders telling her certain things. It’s smoke and mirrors.

        Her father reminds me of Amy’s father – Good intentioned maybe but wrong in their decisions to try and control their daughters. That Amy doco of her being at the beach and her dad charging for a $20 autograph or photo never left me. #freebritney

      • Susan July 25, 2020

        He does remind me of Amy’s father. Well the reason Britney is refusing to work now is allegedly so they won’t have money coming in, but they’ve found ways to still make money off her name (releasing “mood ring” after 4 years, the zone pop up shop all of the fans boycotted, merch for the 20th anniversary of oops, etc). It’s never ending with them. And that assistant robin greenhill and that business manager Lou Taylor seem sketchy AF IMO.

    This interview made him come off as misogynistic tbh. It seems like the men in this family don’t like women with money and control, they want the control. Let’s not forget, Britney’s father (Colon Spears) is allegedly an ALCOHOLIC! Her own mother said he’s an alcoholic in her book “through the storm”. So why is it okay for an ALCOHOLIC to run the life of a woman who shaved her head 13 years ago??? How was HE deemed competent enough to control her estate and her person, yet she isn’t? One word. SEXISM! This wouldn’t happen to a man! #FreeBritney

    When I see people say stupid stuff like

    Family is everything
    Family will always have your bad
    Ur parents can never hate u or hurt u.

    Any time I hear stupid shìt like this I shake my head.

    These people are milking britney dry.

    If they really cared about her, they wouldn’t be spending her money,. But here they are stealing from britney, over working her like a slave.

    Free

    Britney is nuts

    Her fans are nuts

    Mind y’all f****** business

    Without this conservatorship, her ass would spiral out of control and possibly enter into an early, unfortunate demise

    This conservatorship wasn’t GRANTED by a JUDGE for nothing.

    The last thing Britney needs is full control of her life, and especially $$$. Her bank account is stacked because of this conservatorship.

    I do agree the girl needs to retire. She sucks. She can’t sing or perform. She’s just a cash cow for idiots who want to relive 2001 nostalgia.

    Britney will never be what she used to be. Find something better to do with your time during a pandemic.

    • Erica July 24, 2020

      You ignorant h**, you should be ashamed nobody freedom should be taking away

    • Rashad July 25, 2020

      I like her music but Britney fans are delusional and think she can snap back to 2001 Britney. She’s been unwell since 2007….which is the majority of her career. Without the conservatorship I fear she’d spiral into MJ/Whitney territory. Stans need to mind their business. The stage blazing Britney of 98-2006 was far less than 2007-2029

      Her Instagram is unwell. She burnt her gym down and she looks a mess. Leave her be and under the evaluation of experts.

  5. #TheTruth July 24, 2020

    Right choice for the family or right choice for Britney ?

    Is that quote correct, did he say right choice for the family ?

  6. Ropeburn July 24, 2020

    I’m sure this conservatorship is a “great thing for the family.” They get to sit back and collect the coins while Britney gets treated like a money making show pony! The real question here is: Is the conservatorship a great thing for Britney?!

    • Susan July 24, 2020

      That part ⬆️

    • Paulo July 24, 2020

      👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

  7. Jay+Jay July 24, 2020

    I love me some Britney but idk guys. Every time she posts an Instagram video she seems not well. Like she’s highly medicated or something. She still talks like a 15 year old girl. Idk if she’s capable of managing her life.

    • Aguilera July 24, 2020

      She’s not and hasn’t been in 13 years! They are guarding her medical records with their LIVES! She gives me borderline personality disorder or schizophrenia. If not for this conservatorship she would be institutionalized!!!

    • Erica July 24, 2020

      It’s like y’all see it but don’t understand, when she release circus she was under the conservatorship & was doing well! If the woman has any mental issues it is because of this conservatorship. Anybody who’s not able to make decisions, hang out with friends, make mistakes & pretty much have to ask for permission for everything for 12 years straight with no privacy would kind of be lil coo coo. She has no life! She has miss out on so much

  8. A l e X July 24, 2020

    Britney fans need to come to terms w the fact that she’s mentally unwell. #FreeBritney, then what? She doesn’t have the mental capacity to care for herself. Idk what any stan or conspiracy theorist says. Her instagram videos are proof of that. It’s sad but it’s real. Hollywood did a number on her and there’s no turning back. The average person would be in a mental institution, on drugs or dead. Britney is in a better situation than most. Look at Kanye!!

    • Erica July 24, 2020

      Again the reason for the free Britney movement is because the reason she has gotten to this point is because of the control that’s been over her. All it take is some research to see. She was giving intellectual interviews during the conservatorship. Watch the documentary “For the record” where she talks about not being happy with it. She was present & normal. That was in 08 if this was suppose to better her, than why has she deteriorated instead being better than the 08 Britney? All it take is understanding & you will get it

      • Susan July 24, 2020

        Erica coming through with the FACTS! #FreeBritney

  9. Gworl Bye July 25, 2020

    Lmao thee morons really want us to cry pity tears for some entitled privileged has been because they want to relive their glory days from 20 years ago? I think its Britney’s fan base that need their mental stabilities examined.😂🤦🏿‍♂️
