Justin Timberlake has voiced his absolute support for his ex Britney Spears after she publicly spoke out against her conservatorship in court.
The 40-year-old singer, who dated the 'Toxic' hitmaker from 1999 to 2002, insisted Britney's conservatorship - which she has been under since her public meltdown in 2008 - is "just not right", and he called for everyone to back the pop star.
In a series of tweets, he wrote: "After what we saw today, we should all be supporting Britney at this time.
Regardless of our past, good and bad, and no matter how long ago it was… what’s happening to her is just not right.
"No one should EVER be held against their will… or ever have to ask permission to access everything they’ve worked so hard for. (sic)"
He tweeted: "Jess and I send our love, and our absolute support to Britney during this time. We hope the courts, and her family make this right and let her live however she wants to live."
Britney's father Jamie Spears has been acting as her conservator to control her personal and business affairs for the last 13 years - but in a virtual court hearing on Wednesday (23.06.21) she called for him to be jailed.
"I truly believe this conservatorship is abusive. I don’t feel like I can live a full life. In the meantime, I want this therapist to come to my home, I’m not willing to go to Westlake ... They set me up by sending me to the most exposed places. I need your help.
"My dad and anyone involved in this conservatorship, including my management … they should be in jail."
She said: "I am not happy, I can’t sleep. I’m so angry, it’s insane. And I’m depressed. I am traumatised. I just want my life back.
