In 2021, Britney Spears finally broke free from a 13-year-long legal setup that had controlled her life and money. You know her for hit songs like “Stronger” and “Toxic.” The #FreeBritney movement, which had been going on for a while on social media, got even bigger after a documentary called “Framing Britney Spears” came out in 2021. This documentary showed how she struggled to take control of her life because her dad had a say in everything, even if she wanted to have another child.
Lots of people, including famous folks like Dolly Parton and Lance Bass, and her fans online, supported her. But, as she got her freedom back after more than a decade, people started worrying because she did some strange stuff on social media, like dancing in her underwear or almost naked.
Even with all the changes happening in her life, she doesn’t seem bothered at all. In August 2023, her husband of a year, Sam Asghari, filed for divorce, and this got a lot of attention in the media.
To understand this better, let’s go back a bit. In June 2021, Britney spoke in front of a judge for 24 minutes. She said her conservators made her do things she didn’t want to do, gave her medicine to control her mood, and kept her from having more kids.
Then, in November 2021, a judge ended her conservatorship, giving her control over her life and her Instagram.
Since then, she’s been super active on Instagram. You can find lots of videos of her dancing and performing. But, some people worried about her mental health because of these videos.
Experts shared their thoughts. One therapist, Caroline Strawson, said her dancing might be a way to cope with past trauma. Another expert, Dr. Tony Ortega, said Britney might find it tough to recover from all the things she’s been through.
Britney told her fans she’s okay, but when news of her divorce came out in August 2023, people started worrying again. Reports said they were breaking up because of “irreconcilable differences,” and Sam Asghari wanted spousal support.
Britney talked about her divorce on Instagram. She said she didn’t want to explain everything, but she couldn’t hide her pain anymore. She thanked her friends and said her Instagram might look perfect, but it’s not. She also said her strength comes from her dad, Jamie Spears, who she called a “strong soldier.”
Sam Asghari also shared a message on Instagram, saying they decided to end their six-year relationship but would still respect each other.
Even with all of this, Britney didn’t stop posting dance videos on Instagram. So, what do you think about Britney’s unusual videos? Do you think she’s doing okay? Share your thoughts with other Britney Spears fans and talk about her journey.
