On Friday, Nov. 19, Spears posted on Instagram a post containing a video of Christina Aguilera declining—at her publicist’s insistence—to offer her opinion about her conservatorship’s termination. However, did say she was “happy” for Spears.
“I love and adore everyone who supported me,” Spears wrote. “But refusing to speak when you know the truth, is equivalent to a lie!!! 13 years being in a corrupt abusive system yet why is it such a hard topic for people to talk about??? I’m the one who went through it!!! All the supporters who spoke up and supported me thank you…yes I do matter!!!!!”
Aguilera, who co-starred with the “Toxic” singer and Timberlake on Disney’s All-New Mickey Mouse Club series and then rose to fame as a pop star the same time they did in the late ’90s, expressed support for Spears’ legal bid for freedom in June, days after her court testimony.
“These past few days I’ve been thinking about Britney and everything she is going through,” Aguilera tweeted at the time. “It is unacceptable that any woman, or human, wanting to be in control of their own destiny might not be allowed to live life as they wish. To be silenced, ignored, bullied or denied support by those ‘close’ to you is the most depleting, devastating and demeaning thing imaginable. The harmful mental and emotional damage this can take on a human spirit is nothing to be taken lightly.”
