Britney Spears’s conservatorship battles have been made into a documentary by streaming giants Netflix and the powerhouses released a trailer for the show on Wednesday
The first full trailer for Netflix documentary Britney vs Spears exploring Britney Spears’s conservatorship has been released.
The minute-plus trailer for the Erin Lee Carr-directed documentary that was released by Netflix on Wednesday opens with Britney’s recorded voice saying: “I just want my life back.”
It appears to show the film-maker speaking with several experts on conservatorships about the singer’s arrangement, which has been under intense public scrutiny in recent months after Britney made several big claims to a judge.
Earlier this week a teaser for the doc revealed past audio of the singer’s message for a lawyer back in January 2009.
The recording took place 12 months after she had been placed under the complex legal arrangement that she is still battling to rid herself of.
In the clip, the Toxic singer, now 39, said: “Hi, my name is Britney Spears. I called you earlier. I’m calling again because I just wanted to make sure that during the process of eliminating the conservatorship…”

The trailer also reveals that the director was leaked a confidential report on the case during filming.
The voiceover clip also hears Britney say: “I’ve worked my whole life, I don’t owe these people anything.
”It’s been 13 years and it’s enough.”
Britney was placed under what has been described as the world’s most famous conservatorship in 2008 after suffering a public battle with mental health problems.
The legal standing controls much of her personal life and career, with her 69-year-old father, Jamie, overseeing her estate.
After many impassioned calls to step down from the role by his daughter, Jamie agreed to do so last month.
He has filed a petition at the court in Los Angeles which asked the case’s judge consider terminating the conservatorship.
The next hearing in the case is set for September 29.
The conservatorship was thrust back into the public eye earlier in the year after another headline-making documentary was released.
Framing Britney Spears looked into the treatment of the singer from the paparazzi, as well as the terms of the conservatorship.
In June the world watched on as Britney addressed the court, describing how the arrangement was “abusive” and saying h ow it was stopping her from having more children after forcing her on to contraception.
She recently announced her engagement to actor and fitness expert Sam Asghari, 27.
