Netflix has released the first full trailer for their new documentary Britney vs Spears which explores the drama around Britney Spears’ conservatorship.
The trailer for the documentary, directed by Erin Lee Carr, was released yesterday (September 22) and opens dramatically with a recording of the singer’s voice saying: “I just want my life back.”
The new trailer also reveals that the director was leaked a confidential report on the case during filming.
Britney’s conservatorship is under intense scrutiny since she filed several lawsuits in court earlier this month. The trailer goes on to show Carr discussing it with several experts on conservatorships, reports the Mirror.
A teaser trailer released on Tuesday sent fans into the meltdown.
This was an audio clip of Britney’s voice from January 2009, when she left a voicemail for a lawyer.
In it, the Toxic singer who is now 39 said: “Hi, my name is Britney Spears. I called you earlier. I’m calling again because I just wanted to make sure that during the process of eliminating the conservatorship…”
Then the audio cut off.
This recording was made 12 months after Britney’s public mental health crisis that led to the complicated legal arrangement. It suggests that Britney wanted to leave after only one year.
The new trailer also hears Britney say: “I’ve worked my whole life, I don’t owe these people anything.
“It’s been 13 years and it’s enough.”
Since being placed under the conservatorship in 2008 it has controlled much of her personal life and career, with her 69-year-old father Jamie Spears overseeing her estate.
In June this year, the pop star likened the conservatorship to abuse in court. She alleged that it had stopped her marrying or having kids with Sam Asghari, who is now her fiancee after he proposed earlier this month.
After many impassioned calls to step down from the legal arrangement from his daughter, Jamie agreed to do so last month.
He filed a petition to a Los Angeles court asking the judge to end the conservatorship.
September 29 is the date for the next hearing.
As Britney has repeatedly criticized other programs that were related to her court cases, it isn’t known if she will support the Netflix documentary.
Framing Britney Spears was a popular Apple program that was released earlier in the year.
She explained how she was “deeply flattered” that people were so invested in her life but slammed the documentaries, saying in May “they criticize the media and then do the same thing”.
