Britney Spears’ life might have looked a lot different today, if she had more control over it.
The pop superstar’s makeup artist Maxi claims that Britney would have had another child if it wasn’t for her ongoing conservatorship — something he likened to a “Handmaid’s Tale-type” plot.
Of course, Britney has been under a legal guardianship since her public meltdown over a decade ago. It means that a conservator oversees her finances and everyday life. That conservator has been her father, Jamie Spears, for the most part.
Currently, Britney’s manager Jodie Montgomery has taken over as the temporary conservator amid the ongoing conservatorship case. Britney wants more personal autonomy in her life, and doesn’t want her dad to be the only one in charge of her financial decisions. She’s been in and out of court trying to make changes to the guardianship.
Britney was also gunning to unseal parts of her conservatorship case, opening it up to the public. She basically said she doesn’t trust her dad, and wants her fans to hear what he and other professionals are doing to keep her in the conservatorship.
In an odd twist, though, the pop star’s attorney recently likened her to a comatose patient who lacks the capacity to sign declarations. Dad Jamie fired back that he’s not buying it. He said that the attorney doesn’t have the unlimited authority to be her “exclusive voice.”
Jamie also said that his daughter’s conservatorship doesn’t mean she’s stripped of all her rights.
It looks like Britney’s makeup artist might disagree.
According to Maxi, Britney’s tight conservatorship is actually a “Handmaid’s Tale-type” set-up. He thinks her life would look a lot different if she could make her own decisions.
“I can tell you what they’re still controlling to this day is whether she has a baby or not, whether she gets married or not, who her friends are, and those are some big things,” Maxi said, speaking on the Calababes podcast this week.
“We’re talking about some Handmaid’s Tale-type things to keep her from having a baby,” he claimed. “Like, we’re talking… I can’t detail it and I’m not gonna specifically say, but I will say for sure, she would’ve had a baby by now. She would’ve probably been married to [boyfriend] Sam [Asghari] by now. She would have groups of friends around her.”
Even still, Maxi said that the #FreeBritney movement people often get caught up in baseless conspiracy theories. For instance, believing that Sam Asghari is being paid by Jamie Spears or the conservatorship.
“It’s bad enough already. No one needed any fake news or conspiracies added on top of how bad it is,” Maxi said.
Although the makeup artist claims to be good friends with Britney’s boyfriend, Sam, he said most of his knowledge came from overhearing things while in Britney’s presence. Maxi also said that Sam wasn’t allowed to talk much about his relationship, thanks to a non-disclosure agreement.
