Netflix released the first trailer for its new Britney Spears documentary on Wednesday. Britney vs. Spears, from director Erin Lee Carr, comes to the streaming service on Sept. 28, and will delve into the singer's battle with her father, Jamie, who has served as her conservator for over a decade.
Although Spears is a 39-year-old mother of two and an internationally famous pop star, she hasn't been allowed to handle her own finances since Jamie Spears was appointed her conservator back in 2008. In July, Britney Spears' attorney filed a court petition to have Jamie Spears removed from the conservatorship, and in early September, Jamie Spears himself filed a petition to end the controversial arrangement entirely.
Britney Spears herself did not participate in the documentary, the Los Angeles Times reports. But it promises to share information that hasn't come out elsewhere. Carr, 33, has worked on the film for more than two years, and told the newspaper a "source that was connected to the conservatorship ... began to give us documents in the fall of 2020."
