Justin Timberlake Hit With Backlash After His Tweets About Britney Spears’ Conservatorship

Share on Facebook

On Wednesday, Britney Spears asked a judge to shut down her “abusive” conservatorship.

Speaking to the court, the pop star revealed several shocking details about her reality under the conservatorship ran by her father – from being unable to remove her IUD to have children, to being forced to take lithium after her therapist believed lies about her behavior.

Her brave statement sparked the support of many celebrities, including Justin Timberlake, Britney’s ex-boyfriend of 3 years before breaking up in 2002. Britney was branded a “betrayer” and Justin capitalized off of the shame Britney faced afterward.

However, fast-forwarding to Britney’s unbelievably courageous court statement, Justin seems to have put everything in the past by writing a series of tweets expressing his support.


His “support”, however, struck anger amongst Britney’s fans as they claimed “he played a part” in what she’s been put through.

“This is all your FAULT!!!” one fan wrote “LOL. You didn’t have to write those songs!!!”

“I don’t trust this tweet,” another person wrote.

Justin wrote the song “Cry Me A River” and the official video featured a Britney Spears look-alike which helped him capitalize on the breakup and the obvious fact that the media were already on his side.

In an interview with Barbara Walters, Justin denied that any of his songs had anything to do with Britney, but then played a song on the piano labeled “Horrible Woman.”

The lyrics read, “I thought our love was so strong, I guess I was dead wrong. But to look at it positively, hey girl, at least you gave me another song about a horrible woman.”

But despite the backlash of comments on Justin’s recent thread, he still continues to support her along with a number of other celebrities.

“We love you, Britney!!! Stay strong,” Mariah Carey wrote on Twitter alongside 3 heart emojis.

“No one should be treated like this. Stay strong Queen!! You deserve better,” Khloé Kardashian wrote on her Twitter alongside some emojis and the #FreeBritney hashtag:

We stand by you too, Britney! Let’s hope she will be freed from her conservatorship soon.
