News of the listing comes amid the ongoing #FreeBritney movement, which has seen concern from fans that the troubled pop star’s controversial conservatorship is keeping her held prisoner of her own life.
Britney, 38, has been under her the legal guardianship of her father Jamie Spears since 2008 following a very public breakdown, but recently, fans have speculated that the singer has been trying to communicate to the outside world via her Instagram to plead for her escape.
However, TMZ reports that the singer is ‘not being held hostage’ adding that her father is not ‘lording it over his daughter’ and that there is ‘a slew of people involved in the conservatorship – doctors, lawyers, therapists and a judge.’

The site has once again reported that the cocktail of medications that Britney takes to stabilise her mental health has become less efficient over time and that recently she’s been ‘struggling.’ The report does note though that Britney – who has a reported net worth of $ 59million – ‘sometimes complains she wants more freedom.’
Per the report, the #FreeBritney is movement is said to have resurfaced after fans secretly contacted the singer with messages including ‘wear pink if you’re in trouble’ and ‘wear black if you need help’ – the singer was then seen dancing in a video wearing pink shorts with black polka dots, stirring up conspiracy theories.
Last year in May, Britney attended a court hearing over her conservatorship with both her parents – her father Jamie and her mother, Lynne Spears – where the singer was ordered to undergo a 730 expert evaluation.
