britney spears brother bryan discusses frustrating aspects of pop stars conservatorship

Britney Spears’ older brother Bryan Spears discussed the ‘frustrating’ aspects of the conservatorship their father Jaime has in an expansive interview in which he also touched on family friction and the #FreeBritney movement.

The producer, 43, appeared Thursday on the As Not Seen on TV podcast, a day after a hearing in Los Angeles in the ongoing case over the conservatorship, which Bryan said the Grammy-winning singer, 38, ‘always wanted to get out of.

‘It’s very frustrating to have – whether someone’s coming in peace to help or coming in with an attitude, having someone constantly tell you to do something has got to be frustrating,’ the McComb, Mississippi native said of the arrangement.

He added that the conservatorship – which was implemented in 2008 amid a public pileup of personal and professional struggles for the pop star – has been ‘a great thing’ for the family, who continue to hope ‘for the best’ when the dust settles surrounding the issue.

Outside of court Monday, members of the #FreeBritney movement – which aims to see the Toxic artist released from the conditions of the conservatorship – congregated in support of the Lucky singer.

‘I don’t quite know what their meaning is,’ Bryan, the older sibling of Britney and Jamie Lynn, said of the movement, which has gained traction online. ‘I don’t follow it that well. But I am aware that they feel like it’s, maybe she’s being confined or held against her will in some capacity, but I can’t really speak for them.

Bryan had a diplomatic take on the ongoing arrangement, not offering a strong take on how it should be handled moving forward, but rather looking back on how it was an essential at the time.

‘She’s been in this thing for quite some time now,’ he said. ‘Obviously there was a need for it at the beginning that I assume everyone knows the issues that were going on, and now they’ve made some changes and all we can kinda do is hope for the best.’

He added: ‘In the beginning, it was hard … what I think kind of got us all through it, all of us have been pretty close all these years. I mean, normal fights, normal, “Alright, I’m mad at you for a week” family stuff, but nothing ever major where everyone quits speaking …we haven’t ever had that.’

He said that his family ‘came together’ amid the difficult circumstances, ‘and not everybody agreed with it either.’

‘Everyone had their own opinion,’ he said, ‘but in the end, I think we made the right choice – how it proceeds from here? I don’t know.’

He said his father has ‘done the best he could given the situation he was put in,’ and that the family has worked ‘to keep it all going.’

Insiders told The Blast on Thursday reported that the hearing was delayed after four people were able to illegally get into the court’s digital system, leading the judge to postpone the hearing.

The interlopers ignored the judge’s request to log off, leaving the judge ‘frustrated with the situation,’ sources told the outlet, and the proceedings were delayed until next month.

Britney was slated to appear over a digital stream but was not present at the hearing in any way, The Blast reported, citing court docs.

The …Baby One More Time singer was not one of the 10 people who appeared in any capacity, according to court docs, as her father Jamie and mother Lynne were among those in attendance. In Wednesday’s proceedings, according to the outlet, Jamie successfully asked the judge to lock up the ongoing conservatorship from public view, a request he made March 12, on the brink of the coronavirus shutdown.

‘The Court grants the motion to seal the transcript, conditionally seal the Status Report filed pending a further motion, and the motion to clear and close the courtroom,’ court docs read, according to the outlet.

Helen and Preston player Scott have been in a relationship since 2009 and got engaged in May 2018.

The couple had originally planned to marry this year, with Helen previously revealing she’d even found her dream dress, but the actress explained in Ferbruary they had decided to postpone as her younger sister was due to wed in 2020.

The soap star enthused: ‘I always wanted to have a baby, that’s what I’ve always wanted. I think it’s just made me a lot happier, and gives you perspective and helps you rationalise what’s important. I think it gives you a real purpose.

‘I feel like my girls make me feel like I can do anything. I love being a mum, I love everything of it. Sometimes I’m like “this is going to be really difficult” because I’m tired or whatever, but it is amazing as well and I really enjoy it. 

She also said she would love to have two more children and is confident she can twist footballer partner Scott’s arm.

‘I really want to have four’, she said at the time. ‘I think Scott’s like “maybe three” but I don’t know, we’ll see how we go, but I definitely want more. I’m sure I’ll get my own way eventually.’ 

In June, the actress took to her Instagram to announce she will no longer edit her pictures as she wants to set a confident example for her girls.

Helen who admitted her postpartum photos left her ‘self-conscious’, backed up her pledge by posing in a lacy pink lingerie set for a series of un-retouched snaps. 

Helen, wrote on her Stories: ‘My boobs have massively changed from pregnancies and nursing and has made me feel really self conscious the past year. My stomach has changed from my babies.’ 

Long term love: Helen and Preston player Scott have been in a realationship since 2009 and got engaged in May 2018

Helen later detailed why she decided to take the brave step, penning: ‘I’ve decided to stop editing my pictures to be a better role model to my daughters. Beautiful lingerie set @pourmoiltd.

‘I’ve been lucky enough to carry two healthy babies and nurse them both for nearly two years. My skin on my stomach has changed, my boobs massively have (no creepy comments from any creepy men here this is a post about body confidence for other women, I will just delete and block). 

‘The change in my boobs definitely has made me feel less confident in myself but I wouldn’t change a thing.

‘I have cellulite, I don’t have a big bum I have edited it in the past as it’s something I am self conscious of. I’d look at other women on Instagram and put myself down for not looking like that’

In an April 2019 interview with US Weekly, the Avatar actress revealed that she and Marco raise their sons in a gender-neutral household.

Part of the way they structure their lives is by making sure the children have both male and female toys, while ensuring that she Marco do not perform traditional gender roles at home.

First speaking out on the subject in 2018, Zoe said ‘I get to do a lot of male things, which is, I don’t know, put the TV together, fix things that break’ adding ‘I think it’s important to raise boys in that environment, and girls as well.’ 

When it comes to her career, Zoe has been very busy despite COVID-19 restrictions.

Teasing the anticipated drop on her Instagram, the Dominican and Puerto Rican actress spoke out about the importance of wellness in her life as she announced the collaboration a few weeks back. 

‘One of the most important aspects of my life has been exercise. It keeps me healthy and happy both physically and mentally’ she said. 

Zoe has spoken out in the past about her disdain for long workouts, instead optioning 20-30 minutes of exercise that keep her going while on set for 16-hour days. 

The actress and her husband who are both in the industry prefer more engaging ways of staying in shape like going for walks or spending time on the water. 

Marco’s film Keyhole Garden which stars Zoe is currently in post-production though no news of a release date has been shared.
