Love her, hate her, say what you want about her — but don’t make documentaries about Britney Spears’ conservatorship.
The singer bashed the “bulls–t” films exploiting her story in a lengthy Instagram rant Monday.
Spears, 41, posted a screenshot of a 2021 quote asking whether she was “okay with people making these documentaries” in the wake of Netflix’s “Britney vs Spears.”
Lady Gaga’s manager, Bobby Campbell, wrote at the time, “There needs to be transparency about how or whether the filmmakers are profiting from this doc, or if they are donating their fees to Britney’s legal defense, or to legal defense funds to aide those who do not have the financial resources to fight against undue conservatorships.”
The “Crossroads” star’s now-estranged husband, Sam Asghari, responded to Campbell’s comment with a “100” emoji at the time.
In Spears’ belated reply, she wondered “what angle” the projects “were … coming at.”
She asked, “Was it to demonstrate support … understanding … love ??? Why no !!! None of these !!! It was to offend and offend only !!!”
The Grammy winner added that since “the bottom line is intention,” any “hour long documentaries showing [her] hardest times 3 years ago” are a way to “manipulate the system” — and she does not “benefit from THAT !! BULLS–T !!!”
In response to Campbell’s question, she claimed it would not “matter if [she] wasn’t ok” with the docs.
Spears has previously commented on films documenting her 13-year conservatorship, writing in 2021 that the New York Times’ “Framing Britney Spears” in particular left her “embarrassed” and crying “for two weeks.”

At the time, a source told Page Six “there [were] parts of the film that were too hard and emotional for her to watch.”
The insider added, “But, she feels, for the first time in many years, that people are on her side and things will get better for her.”
Later that same year, a judge terminated Spears’ conservatorship.
While “TMZ Investigates: Britney Spears: The Price of Freedom,” the NYT’s “Controlling Britney Spears” and more documentaries have since covered the Princess of Pop’s legal battle, Spears was able to tell her own story for the first time in her recently released memoir, “The Woman in Me.”
“I remain shocked that the state of California would let a man like my father … control me after all my accomplishments and everything I had done,” she wrote in the Oct. 24 bestseller.
