Britney Spears is struggling against a conservatorship of her father Jamie Spears, which has officially started more than 12 years ago. Many people across the world support Britney demanding her father to free the pop singer. Billionaire and TESLA CEO Elon Musk posted a short message on Twitter saying: “Free Britney”. The tweet has received more than 70,000 likes in less than an hour.

The rules of the conservatorship have established control over Britney’s money and personal affairs since 2008. Earlier, Britney Spears said that she wanted to create a family, but the conservatorship denies all her family-related desires, so the pop singer reportedly feels depressed and cries every day.

"I want to be able to get married and have a baby," Spears said. "I have an IUD inside of myself so that I don't get pregnant, but [my team doesn't] want me to have any more children.", she added.

Earlier, Judge Brenda J. Penny denied the request by Britney’s attorney, Samuel Ingham, to remove Britney’s father as the conservator of her estate. "The conservator's request to suspend James P. Spears immediately upon the appointment of Bessemer Trust Company of California as sole conservator of estate is denied without prejudice," the documents stated. The court also found the pop singer to be unable to manage her financial resources or to resist fraud, according to the same documents.

More well-known persons came out to support Britney, such as her ex-boyfriend Justin Timberlake, Mariah Carey, Rose McGowan, Kathy Griffin, and others.
