Britney Spears (40) spoke again in a 20-minute audio clip about her father's guardianship, which ended in November 2021. She also lashed out at other family members and criticized her mother's apparent lack of support during this time. Lynne Spears (67) has now responded to this in an Instagram post and defended herself against the allegations: "Britney, all your life I've done my best to support your dreams and desires! And I've also tried my best to help you out of difficult situations!"
In the clip, which first appeared on the singer's YouTube channel and was later deleted, Britney Spears said, according to the "Hollywood Reporter", that her father Jamie Spears (70) became a guardian in 2008 "intentionally". "I know now that it was all planned and a woman pitched the idea to my dad and mom [and] actually helped him go through with it and make it happen."
