Mariah Carey was one of the first stars to take to her social media to show support for Britney Spears, after the singer gave an anguished speech in court about the control exerted over her life for years.
During her hearing, Spears said she believed that the conservatorship — a legal arrangement that controls her personal life and finances — was “abusive” and she wants control of her life, to be able to live a full life.
The speech broke the internet, and before she could finish reading the prepared testimony, especially her revelation that they drugged her on lithium and had an IUD inserted inside her, preventing her to get married or have another child.
We love you Britney!!! Stay strong ❤️❤️❤️

Other people who stood beside Spears was her devoted fans, who were not happy with the arrangement; they commended her for speaking up and reacted with disgust to parts of her account.
I've never been more proud to be a Britney Spears fan. What a fucking badass brave courageous woman.
