It's been a rough couple of months for Britney Spears...
And not too long ago, fans were very worried for the huge pop star.
Why? It was all down to reports that Britney wanted to remove her controlling father as her sole conservator...
via: GettyThe #FreeBritney campaign has been kicking off worldwide and fans have been demanding justice for the singer.
Britney held her silence for a long while.
via: GettyBut now, yet another troubling video has been posted by the singer... leaving fans seriously concerned.
Now, it all started in 1998...
via: GettySince starring in The All-New Mickey Mouse Club, aged eleven, she embarked on a highly successful career as a singer and performer with the release of the hit single "...Baby One More Time".
Britney quickly became one of the most famous popstars of her decade.
via: GettyWith hits such as "Oops, I did it again," "Slave 4 U," and "Britney," the Mississippi born singer consistently topped the charts.
She was even affectionately hailed the princess of pop.Britney seemed to be at the peak of her career - churning out hit after hit.
But, early on, Britney's life started to take a turn for the worst.
via: GettyBad press began during Britney's breakup from husband and childhood sweetheart, Justin Timberlake, which was a very public and ugly split.
Things only got worse from there.
And in 2007, Britney finally snapped.
Her breakdown was triggered by a number of different factors...
via: GettyShe had spent years battling mental health problems and, after her split from husband Kevin Federline, the father of her 2 sons, she headed to rehab in Antigua.
However, her stay didn't last...
via: GettyBirtney checked herself out after only twenty-four hours and flew back to L.A.
The pictures of her hacking her own hair off shocked the world.
via: GettyBritney had walked into Esther's Hair Salon in Tarzana, an upmarket neighborhood of LA, and asked the owner to shave her head because her hair extensions were too tight. And, when the hairdresser refused, the singer grabbed the clippers and went on to shave off her long locks herself.
Britney's breakdown was publicized all over the world.
via: GettyThe image of Britney, then aged twenty-five, emerging from the salon with a freshly-shaven head and attacking a paparazzo's car with an umbrella became one of the most famous snaps of that decade.
A few months following this, Britney was hospitalized.
via: GettyIn January 2008, she was seen being carried out of her house after reportedly overdosing on prescription amphetamines and locking herself in the bathroom with her youngest son, Jayden, as she refused to hand him back to Federline, who had full custody of the children.
It was a long road to recovery for the pop star...
She has gone on to win a number of awards...
However, one sinister consequence of her breakdown still remains to this day.
via: GettyAnd that's the questionable role her dad has in her life.
As stated earlier, Jamie controls every aspect of his daughter's life.
via: GettyA Los Angeles court named Jamie as the permanent conservator of his daughter’s affairs in 2008, and he was named as the permanent co-conservator of her estate, along with an attorney, Andrew Wallet.
Fans believe that, to this day, Britney's dad dictates her every move...

Last year, Britney had addressed the movement, writing on Instagram:
And now, fast forward one year...
It was reported last month that she no longer wants her dad to be in control of her conservatorship.TMZ reported.
Britney's attorney, Samuel Ingham, said in a statement:
Fans continue to worry about the singer's wellbeing...
via: TwitterAnd her first Instagram story in months sparked a lot of concern.
Britney took to her Instagram Story earlier this week to advertise "Project Rose."
via: Twitter"People have been saying that a lot of my posts are not new - but they're old - but just to let you guys know none of my pictures or posts are more than a month old," she started by explaining.
She went on to admit that she did wear the same top "seventeen times."

But the latest Britney news isn't only about her.
It also involves Justin Timberlake.
Twenty-five minutes into the nyt britney doc and ready to slowly pull out each of justin timberlake’s teeth with a wrench— Natalie Walker (@nwalks) February 6, 2021
And people are really disgusted with him after a new documentary all about Britney dropped recently.
They're demanding he apologised to her.
I’m always available for a good Justin Timberlake drag! His ass aint sh*t and that’s on Britney & Janet pooh!— ✨ (@heyjaeee) February 6, 2021
And claim that he had a big role in tarnishing Britney's reputation after the pair broke up back in 2002.
Timberlake claimed Britney was unfaithful to him.
Justin Timberlake has done a lot of shit that he needs to apologize for, but his treatment of Britney is at the top of the list. I want a public apology, and acknowledgement of the harm he’s done.— Sarah Putterman (@msputterman) February 6, 2021
But despite Britney maintaining her innocence, her image was certainly distorted...
