Sam Asghari, Britney Spears’ new fiancée, has said that several recent documentaries about the singer have “left a bad aftertaste.”
The actor and personal trainer made the comments on Instagram as he reacted to the upcoming release of Netflix documentary Britney vs. Spears – the latest in a series of films about the singer.
FX movie Framing by Britney Spears, released in February, lifted the lid on the controversial conservatory scheme that gave Spears’ father full control over her life and career.
CNN followed this up with Toxic: Britney Spears’ fight for freedom, while the BBC released The Battle of Britney: Fans, Cash and a Conservatory in May.
“Former doctors left a bad aftertaste. I hope this one will be respectful,” Asghari said, referring to the Netflix movie.
He added: “I do not blame CNN, BBC or Netflix (which got me through lockdowns) for broadcasting them because as an actor I also tell other people’s stories.
“I question manufacturers who made them ‘just to shed light’ without input or approval from the subject. Any credit for the light being shed should go to #FreeBritney.”
Spears has even referred to many of the recent documentaries about her as “hypocritical”.
The hashtag Asghari mentioned refers to an extensive fan campaign to ensure Spears’ freedom from the conservatory.
Supporters of Spears launched the campaign back in 2019, but have received renewed popularity and energy since the release of the many documentaries and the appearance of the star’s legal fights to end the event.
Jamie Spears – Britney’s father – has reportedly agreed to step down as curator and pave the way for the event to take place.
The singer and her legal team have talked about her wish that it should happen almost immediately before the end of the year.
Spears Conservatory was introduced in 2008 after the singer’s very public struggles with mental health issues.
She has described the event as “offensive” and has been involved in a long legal battle with the hope of getting rid of the conservatory to clear up her own affairs.
