DUBAI: Following the shocking claims that Britney Spears made while speaking to the court during a June 23 conservatorship hearing, in which she shared details of her anguish after 13 years under the legal arrangement overseen by her father, Jamie Spears, celebrities took to social media to show their support for the popstar.
Justin Timberlake, whom Spears dated between 1999 and 2002, said: “What’s happening to her is just not right. No one should ever be held against their will,” adding “[My wife] Jess and I send our love, and our absolute support to Britney during this time.”
After what we saw today, we should all be supporting Britney at this time.
Regardless of our past, good and bad, and no matter how long ago it was… what’s happening to her is just not right.
No woman should ever be restricted from making decisions about her own body.

Mariah Carey tweeted: “We love you Britney! Stay strong!”
Wishing All the luck in the world to Tahani’s good friend, Britney Spears today. It is the most bizarre theft of freedom that has happened right in front of our eyes for over a decade now, and I hope she finds assistance with organizing her life that she is comfortable with now.
