Following the release of the controversial documentary Framing Britney Spears, which documents the popstars rise to fame and shines a light on her ongoing messy conservatorship battle, it is being reported that the “Toxic” singer hasn’t seen the docuseries.
“As of Sunday, Britney [Spears] hadn’t watched the documentary, but she’s aware of it,” a source revealed, noting that “she had not seen any of it.”
The insider stressed that it was the singer’s own decision not to watch, due to her being “fed up with the conservatorship,” noting that: “She feels there is a hole missing in her life because of the conservatorship and that she won’t be able to live a normal life until that’s over. She knows it’s a battle for her whole life.”
Last year, the blonde beauty had a messy conservatorship court battle to attempt to remove her father, Jamie Spears, from the conservatorship she has been under since 2008 following a series of very public mental breakdowns. Although Jamie is still her conservator, Bessemer Trust was appointed co-conservator.
Although Spears hasn’t spoken out publicly in regards to the documentary, OK! reported her long-term boyfriend Sam Asghari has broken his silence and offered up some words of encouragement and support for his girlfriend.
"I have always wanted nothing but the best for my better half, and will continue to support her following her dreams and creating the future she wants and deserves," the 27-year-old said in a statement. "I am thankful for all of the love and support she is receiving from her fans all over the world, and I am looking forward to a normal, amazing future together."

Spears’ ex, Justin Timberlake has come under fire after the limited series aired, with many demanding the former boybander apologize to the "Stronger" crooner for the way he treated her during their relationship — and wanting him to own up to publicly humiliating Janet Jackson after their infamous Super Bowl halftime performance in 2004.
Although social media has attacked Timberlake “for throwing Britney under the bus,” OK! exclusively learned that he has no intentions of apologizing to his ex. “It has been a rough weekend for Justin. First the Britney Spears fans have come after him on social media and then on Sunday Janet Jackson’s fans joined in blaming him for destroying two of the biggest female artists in the world,” sources tell OK!, adding that “Justin is aware of the noise, but he won’t be responding,”
“Every Super Bowl his controversial performance with Janet Jackson comes back up. He is used to accusations about that ‘wardrobe malfunction,’ however, the Britney accusations took him by surprise,” the source continued, stressing that “Justin is shocked The New York Times would produce such a tabloid documentary and hasn’t watched it.” Pals add that Timberlake wishes nothing but the best for Spears.
The “Toxic” singer and Timberlake dated for four years before calling it quits in 2002.
Page Six was the first to report that Spears has not watched the documentary.
