If you have been anywhere near social media these past few months you have some idea of what the #FreeBritney movement is. To sum it up, Britney Spears has been in a conservatorship with her father and management for the past 13 years. A conservatorship is where one adult is in charge of making decisions for another adult who is deemed incapable of managing their own affairs. This means her dad is in charge of her money, estate, and personal life including decisions on if she can get married, if she can have children, if she can leave her house and if she can see her kids and boyfriend. Conservatorships are usually for adults who suffer from Alzheimers or other neurological disorders. On the contrary, Britney Spears is 39 years old, and though she has suffered from mental illness, on the outside she seems to be a fully functioning adult. A documentary created by the New York Times titled “Framing Britney Spears” goes into depth on her life, how it began, how her career began, her downfall and her conservatorship. Specifics on her current mental state and medical information are disclosed to the public however recently Britney was seen in court for her testimony about the conservatorship. The courts transcripts are the first time we hear about the conservatorship, Britneys mental illness and everything in-between from her perspective.
Let’s dive deeper into #FreeBritney
On June 23, Britney stood in front of the judge to give her testimony against the conservatorship, her father, family and management. She began by going into detail on how the conservatorship has affected her mentally and provided recent examples of abuse in the conservatorship. The first example she gave was back In 2018. Britney was forced to go on a tour and was threatened to be sued if she did not comply. If Britney did get sued, she did not have the rights to choose her own attorney due to the conservatorship. Rather her father, who wanted her to do the tour, would have the rights to choose her attorney. Out of fear, the pop star did the tour. When the tour was over she began rehearsing four days a week for a new show in Las Vegas. When the pop-star said no to one of the dance moves, management called her therapist and told them she was not cooperating and was not taking her medication, which was a lie. The situation escalated after Britney told her management she did not want to do the Vegas Show. Her management bombarded her doctor and he prescribed her lithium, a medication she felt she did not need and was scared to take.
The lithium had serious affects on the pop-star and she needed six nurses to take care of her while she was on the drug. After a lengthy four hour psych examination, the star was forced into a rehabilitation program where she would pay $60,000 and be in a high-populated area, which is something she did not want as a famous pop-star. At the rehab center, Britney worked seven days a week 8am – 6pm, was not allowed to have any possessions, lived with the people she worked with, had 24/7 security, was not allowed to see her kids or boyfriend, had to do strenuous blood tests weekly, and had no privacy including when she was changing. This was just one incident from Britneys life from the past 13 years.
The second half of her testimony was Britney explaining what she wants out of this court case. This included that she did not want to be evaluated yet again to end the conservatorship, she wanted to be in charge of her own finances, meet with her therapist only once a week, and to be able to go in her boyfriends car. She also mentioned suing her family and having the ability to tell her story to the world. Of course, as outsiders, we do not have all the information about the conservatorship and Britneys mental state. However, we do hope for the well-being of the pop star and hope that in the end she is happy. This court case has the potential to last years, and only time will tell the outcome.

Hey guys! It’s Jenni Jwoww Farley here, and I have some GREAT news to share with all my fans.
No, I’m not going to be on the cover of Sports Illustrated Bikini addition, BUT my online site “Miss Domesticated” is back and running! From day one, my intention for “Miss Domesticated” was to create a one stop shop for readers to be entertained while consuming their news. We cover trends, fashion, beauty, entertainment, and all that falls in-between. I don’t know about you, but I’m a little over 2020 and could use some positivity on my news feed.
Aside from the re-launch of my site, I will be working on a few new projects that I’m very excited about. For those of you who are reality TV fans….YES, I will be getting ready to film another season of Jersey Shore: Family Vacation. Despite the rumors, I’ve made the decision to stick with the show and reunite once again with my second family.
While it was nice to be home these last few months with the kids, I’m ready to get back into the swing of things and say f*ck you to 2020. I can’t believe I’d ever say this, but I’m really getting tired of baking (no offense banana bread).

Chrissy Teigen raised quite a few eyebrows this week after blocking 1 million Twitter accounts and deleting thousands of her own Tweets. Why would she do such a thing? Conspiracy Theorists around the world are saying it is because Teigen could be affiliated with convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein. Just when we thought 2020 couldn’t get any worse. Yikes.
Teigen made multiple statements CLEARLY denying ANY association to Epstein or visiting his island.
I have block chained over one million people, ONE MILLION people today and I am still flooded with sick psychopaths. So please, spare me the “just ignore them, they’re just trolls”— chrissy teigen (@chrissyteigen) July 15, 2020
Despite her asking for the harassment to stop, the mother of two continued to receive heinous tweets referring to her as a “pedophile”. Teigen made a statement saying she will leave Twitter if the company doesn’t do something to resolve the issue.
Epstein committed suicide back in 2019 as he awaited his NYC trial.
Since then, it seems like a never ending flood of new evidence continues rising to the surface. In early July, Epstein’s former girlfriend, Ghislaine Maxwell, was arrested. Why? For assisting Epstein in recruiting underage girls. While much is still unknown, a major development broke in the case when they found and arrested Maxwell.
Earlier this year, Netflix released the documentary “Jeffrey Epstein: Filthy Rich” . Throughout the docu-series, several young woman came forward in sharing disturbing stories of the abuse they endured during their time at Epstein’s private island. Teigen is being accused of visiting that same island.
While Chrissy T. may feel personally attacked throughout all of this, she is not alone.
Several other Hollywood stars are also being accused of affiliation with Epstein. According to conspiracy theorists, President Trump, Hillary Clinton, and Bill Clinton are just a few names on a long list of others who have been associated with Epstein.
As for us here at Miss Domesticated? We just hope the allegations are untrue and Chrissy’s Twitter account can go back to an online destination for delicious recipes, amazing “clap backs”, and positivity.
