“After what we’ve seen today, we should all be supporting Britney right now.” These were the words of Justin Timberlake, in a statement relayed on Twitter. Like a large number of people, the singer heard from Britney Spears’ testimony on Wednesday, June 23. A long-awaited speech that took place at the Los Angeles court during which the international popstar demanded the end of her guardianship. Request that his ex-companion could only support. “No matter our past, good or bad, and no matter when it was, what happened to him just isn’t fair,” the singer continued.
Justin Timberlake did not stop there, despite his previous attacks on Britney Spears – affronts accumulated in a title, Cry Me A River, released after their breakup – and has established himself as a steadfast support for the companion of Sam Asghari. “No woman should ever be prevented from making decisions about her own body,” he added on the social network to the Blue Bird. “No person should ever be held back against their will or have to ask permission to access the things they have worked so hard for.” So he sent, along with his wife, Jessica Biel, his “absolute love and [his] support” to Britney Spears.
After what we saw today, we should all be supporting Britney at this time. Regardless of our past, good and bad, and no matter how long ago it was… what’s happening to her is just not right. No woman should ever be restricted from making decisions about her own body.

What did Britney Spears say during her testimony?
Britney Spears’ speech was a shock wave. Faced with judge Brenda Penny for about thirty minutes, she shared the ordeal she was forced to undergo, in particular by her father, in charge of her guardianship, Jamie Spears. “I just want to take back control of my life, it’s been 13 years and that’s enough,” she said. Before explaining that, despite her dream of a third child (she is already the mother of Sean and Jayden, born of her love with dancer Kevin Federline), she was forced to wear an IUD. “I lied, I told the whole world that I was fine and happy. It’s a lie. I was in denial. I was in shock. I’m traumatized,” she admitted. And to add: “I am not happy, I am not sleeping, I am so angry, and I am depressed.”
