Pop Princess Turned Recluse Britney Spears New Doc Reveals Father’s Control

Britney Spears

Since its US premiere this month a much-heralded and discussed documentary ‘Framing Britney Spears‘ has prompted a re-examination of the tabloid coverage of female celebrities in the early 2000’s.

Archive footage provides a compelling argument towards the mistreatment of the one time pop sensation Britney Spears.

The film which is available to watch in Ireland tonight covers the origins of Spears’ controversial conservatorship, allowing her father control over her career since 2008, and her ongoing legal battle to oppose it.

A legal arrangement has given, Jamie Spears, control over her estate, career and other aspects of her personal life, including medical treatment, for the past 13 years.

A status hearing in an LA court last Thursday came as the new documentary sparked widespread outrage about the court process and Spears’ senior’s role in the conservatorship.

Framing Britney Spears, from producer director Samantha Stark, explores the miserable outcome for Spears: the use of the US legal instrument to deprive her of the right to control her life and the fortune she earned.
