Britney Spears’ brother Bryan made a rare interview and broke his silence on the #FreeBritney campaign.
He appeared on a July 23rd episode of the “As Not Seen on TV” podcast and gave his take on the situation. “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.
Bryan told host Drew Plotkin that he and Britney “speak constantly,” but he does not actively use social media so he doesn’t have a complete understanding of the #FreeBritney movement.
“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 said, noting that the conservatorship has “been a great thing for our family, to this point, and [we] keep hoping for the best.”
Britney was placed under a conservatorship in 2008 after her public breakdown and divorce from Kevin Federline. Britney’s father, Jamie Spears, was her main conservator from 2008 to September 2019. The conservatorship stops the entertainer from making any personal or financial decisions without approval.
In May 2019, Britney’s mother, Lynne Spears, requested to be updated on the details of the conservatorship. She has also filed court documents demanding “special notice” of “all matters” involving the trust that Britney established in 2004 to protect her multimillion-dollar fortune.
