Britney Spears’s conservatorship is a topic that has taken over 2021. As a result, it seems there is a new documentary almost every other week uncovering the secrets of Spears’s thirteen-year legal arrangement.

A few days after Netflix released the teaser for “Britney vs. Spears,” The New York Times released another documentary about Spears’s conservatorship on Hulu. Unfortunately, the documentary uncovers more horrible details about the arrangement.

“Controlling Britney Spears” features exclusive interviews from people who were close to Spears while she was under the conservatorship. Thus, the interviewees had plenty to add about Spears’s harsh reality under the conservatorship.

For example, a former employee who had a close working relationship with Spears opened up in the documentary. Alex Vlasov, who worked as an executive assistant and operations and cybersecurity manager, said:

“It really reminded me of somebody that was in prison, and security was put in a position to be the prison guards essentially.”

Vlasov alleges that the Black Box security firm Spears’ father, James hired planted surveillance apparatus to monitor Spears at all times. He claims that the firm secretly captured audio recordings of Spears during private interactions.

Vlasov also supplemented his claims with emails, audio recordings, and text messages. As a result, things are not looking great for Spears’s former conservators, who may have broken the law if Vlasov’s claims are true.

Shockingly, there are more bombshell allegations in addition to conservators keeping a constant controlling eye on Spears. One of the claims is that a security member was also logged into Spears’ iCloud to monitor her digital interactions.

Another shocking allegation from the documentary is that Spears’s father controlled which men she could see. The documentary claims that James had private investigators follow men who befriended the pop star.

In another shocking allegation, fans learn why Spears was able to endure her conservatorship for so long. The superstar’s former head of wardrobe revealed that she was afraid to do anything that would cause her to lose her sons.

The former employee explained that Spears was terrified of being accused of anything that would jeopardize her being an active mother. Another confirmed that everyone was often told the conservatorship was helpful for her custody.
