Britney Spears is one of the biggest music stories in the world right now, but it’s not because of her music.

It's to do with the saga of her controversial 13 year long conservatorship.

In 2019 the Free Britney hashtag and movement went viral. More recently we’ve seen a series of documentaries covering the issue, and the story has grown and grown.

Then, a few weeks ago, after years of silence, we saw Britney finally speak out publicly.

She confirmed years worth of speculation regarding her conservatorship, and perhaps most importantly, the role her father Jamie Spears has played in all of it.

So could the 13 year battle to free Britney finally be coming to an end?
