BRITNEY Spears did not personally share the Instagram post about crying over her documentary, her former makeup artist has claimed.
The singer, 38, said on Tuesday that she "cried for two weeks and feels embarrassed and insulted" by the Framing Britney Spears documentary.
Alongside a dancing video, she posted: "I didn't watch the documentary but from what I did see of it I was embarrassed by the light they put me in … I cried for two weeks and well …. I still cry sometimes !!!!"
Billy Brasfield, who worked with Britney in 2012 and 2013, claimed he spoke to her and she said she had no control over the caption.
"The content is her, but… the words are NOT how she feels," he alleged to Page Six.
“I immediately knew it was not her. I texted her about it and she texted me back last night.”
“What was upsetting [about the post] – it was basically a narrative denouncing her fans and the Free Britney movement and people now taking a very conscious look at the facts and what is going on."
Billy – who worked with the Toxic singer on The X Factor in 2012 through her 2013 video “Scream and Shout” – added:“Although it might be complicated for her, of course she is invested. It’s her life.
"She does not like being a victim, she never wanted to be a victim and doesn’t see herself as a victim. She sees herself as a survivor and has navigated this with patience and strategy.”
He said the post may have been shared to distract people from Britney's current legal battle with her father Jamie over her conservatorship.
Cassie Petrey, who runs Britney's social media for the company Crowd Surf, previously denied fan speculation that she's not running her account.
"Britney creates her own posts and writes her own captions for Instagram,£ he said on Instagram in February.
“She finds the Google images, Pinterest images, quotes, memes and everything else herself. Nobody is suggesting any of that stuff to her"
“Britney is not ‘asking for help’ or leaving secret messages in her social media. She is literally just living her life and trying to have fun on Instagram.
"My work on Britney’s social media does not involve her conservatorship in any way. That’s a court and lawyer thing… These are facts.”
Last month, Britney officially asked a judge to permanently end Jamie's control over her $60m fortune and personal life.
The pop star's life has been managed by a controversial court-ordered conservatorship since 2008 in the wake of her very public breakdown.
Jamie had been in control of both the singer's financial and personal affairs before stepping down from the latter role in September 2019 due to health reasons.
Jodi Montgomery – a care professional – then replaced him on what has been a temporary basis.
At a recent hearing into Britney's case, her lawyer Samuel D Ingham III told a judge in Los Angeles he would file a petition to make the appointment permanent.
The news comes just a month after The Sun reported that she is “100 percent confident she will take back control of her life again”.
