Britney Spears is letting her voice be heard...at least for a few minutes. The pop star deleted a lengthy message shared to her Instagram on Saturday, July 9, dragging producers for making documentaries on her life without her permission.
"I've never felt more bullied in my life in this country it's insane," the "Lucky" singer wrote, later adding, "And come on seriously is it honestly legal to do that many documentaries about someone without their blessing at all??!"
"Not one person on the face of this earth would people — a network, TV production or anyone for that matter — dig up that much negative footage and do hour specials claiming it's ‘HELPING ME.’ REALLY ???" she continued. "It was the most insulting thing I ever saw in my life and every person I have spoken to has said it's why the conservatorship ended ... REALLY ???"
The frustrated mother-of-two also voiced her confusion on why others claimed the documentaries helped her in any way, when it was her own testimonies before a judge that helped end the conservatorship.
"THAT said it all... that would be ENOUGH. But not in America !!" she vented. "Every person jumps on board with these heartbreaking documentaries and forget the 13 years in my conservatorship.. .. making up for some of my past they literally have no remorse at all. They have always treated me like that, literally that's exactly what my family did to me."

This isn't the first time Spears has chosen to speak out against the tell-all docs. As OK! previously reported, she claimed Hulu's Framing Britney Spears drove her to tears, and a source later alleged the Princess of Pop found the footage "unsettling and highly humiliating."
"I didn't watch the documentary but from what I did see of it I was embarrassed by the light they put me in ... I cried for two weeks and well .... I still cry sometimes !!!!" the singer wrote via Instagram on Wednesday, March 30.
"I don't blame CNN, BBC, or Netflix (wich [sic] got me thru lockdowns) for airing them because as an actor I tell other peoples stories too," he explained in a post shared to Instagram. "I question producers who made them 'just to shed light' without input or approval from subject. Any credit for light being shed should go to #freebritney".
