One source went on to speak about Spear’s conservatorship and criticized those who think that it should end. It has been ongoing for the last 12 years.

“These people who are screaming for the conservatorship to end, well if that happened and she hurt herself or died 2 weeks after would these people utter a peep?” the source shared. “No way.”

It all comes after the hashtag #FreeBritney started surfacing on social media, with fans concerned about her following several interesting dance and fashion show videos she posted.

In response, some fans who feared she was in need of help and possibly being held against her will reportedly tweeted to her messages like “wear black if you need help” and “wear pink if you are in trouble.”

The “Toxic” hitmaker then posted a video of her wearing black and pink polka dot shorts while dancing.

The outlet also noted that fans thought because Spears crossed her arms the clip she posted in an “X” fashion, she was reportedly sending the message, “I’m not okay.”
