Yes, the title is right: Britney supports the #FreeBritney movement and basically called us an “informed fan base”.
In a new legal doc filed by her lawyer, Samuel Ingham, to oppose Jamie’s motions to seal parts of the conservatorship case she says she wants people to know what’s going on and that she wants more transparency. The doc says: “BRITNEY strongly believes it is consistent not only with her personal best interests but also with good public policy generally that the decision to appoint a new conservator of her estate be made in as open and transparent a manner as possible. The sealing motion is supposedly being brought by her father to “protect” BRITNEY’s interests, but she is adamantly opposed to it.”
It also says that there’s nolegal reason to seal the new docs because there are no medical issues or sensitive issues with her children to protect.
In another part of the filing, they also call Andrew Wallett a “semi-retired attorney who resigned suddenly after serving as her conservator for many years”.
And probably one of the most important parts of this new doc is that she expresses her support for the FreeBritney movemenent and says that it’s not a conspiracy theory nor a “joke”, as Jamie said a few weeks ago in an interview. Here’s the full text:
Far from being a conspiracy theory or a “joke” as JAMES reportedly told the media, in large part this scrutiny is a reasonable and even predictable result of JAMES’ aggressive use oft he sealing procedure over the years to minimize the amount of meaningful information made available to the public. Whatever merits his strategy might have had years ago when BRITNEY was trying to restart her career, at this point in her life when she is trying to regain some measure of personal autonomy, BRITNEY welcomes and appreciates the informed support of her many fans. Although the sealing motion is supposedly for her “protection”, BRITNEY herself is vehemently opposed to this effort by her father to keep her legal struggle hidden away in the closet as a family secret.
The moment that JAMES obtained from this Court the power to handle BRITNEY’s affairs on her behalf, he surrendered a large measure of privacy as to the manner in which he exercises that power. Transparency is an essential component in order for this Court to earn and retain the public’s confidence with respect to protective proceedings like this one. In this case, it is not an exaggeration to say that the whole world is watching.

Her team (Jamie, Lou Taylor, Jamie Lynn, Larry and more) called us a bunch of crazy conspiracy theorist and fans since the movement started last year… What will they say now that Britney herself supports us? The evidence was always in plain sight, everything we said was backed up with REAL court documents. We never made up anything we said. And this is the result: After 12 years of an abusive conservatorship, Britney finally had the strength to fight her conservators.
And Britney… We are 100% here for you and we will always support you. You got this, girl. Keep fighting!
