Britney Spears’ fiancé Sam Asghari has called out Netflix over the documentary about the pop star’s conservatorship as he believes the profits should go to her legal defense.
The major streaming service dropped the first trailer for Britney Vs. Spears and the 27-year-old Iranian-American model could be seen in the comments defending his partner.
Asghari wrote: ‘I hope the profit from these docs go toward fighting agains[t] injustice #freebritney.’
He then backed up a Britney fan’s comment with a 100percent emoji who wrote: ‘How much money is being made by third parties from this documentary leveraging Britney’s personal story and its value in the media?
‘There needs to be transparency about how or whether the filmmakers are profiting from this doc, or if they are donating their fees to Britney’s legal defense, or to legal defense funds to aid those who do not have the financial resources to fight against conservatorships. Even if it is in support of freeing Britney, this appears that it could be exploitative.’
This comes just as her lawyers filed the paperwork to have her father, Jamie Spears, quickly removed as her court-appointed conservator.
Britney’s lawyer, Matthew Rosengart, petitioned a Los Angeles court on Wednesday to replace Jamie with a ‘temporary, short term’ conservator when both sides meet again in court on September 29, while also citing that Jamie has, himself, taken recent steps to end the arrangement.
‘To all the reasons why immediate suspension always has been required, we now can add another essential one: as has been publicly reported, Ms. Spears recently became engaged,’ Britney‘s lawyer wrote in his filing that was obtained by E! News.
‘With Ms. Spears’s consent and pursuant to her instructions, Ms. Spears and the undersigned counsel are in the process of engaging a family law attorney to craft a prenuptial agreement.’
