She is well known worldwide. Born in Mississippi on December 2, 1981, Britney Spears has established herself as one of the great icons of music. So much so that she is considered the "Princess of Pop" of the first years of the 21st century. The American singer has managed to conquer her audience for years.
In addition to her outstanding professional career, one aspect of Britney Spears that, on many occasions, has given her a lot to talk about is her personal life. In this sense, a figure that has stood out and has generated several debates is her father, who has greatly influenced the artist's life, and not always in a positive way. For this reason, from The Look we want to provide you with all the information you need to know more about him.
A great pop music reference
Britney's path through the music world began in 1999, when, at the age of 16, she released her first album Baby One More Time, selling millions of copies worldwide.
This was the moment in which she became the "Princess of Pop", a title that she consolidated with her next album Ups! I Did It Again. In 2001 she had already released her third album and a year later she made her debut in film, thanks to her participation in the movie Crossroads.
Strong media presence
After her fifth album, Britney began to be the target of the specialized tabloid media. This was mainly due to her night outings with Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan. From this period we have the image of the singer shaving her head.
Her latest work, released in 2016, meant that Britney parked her music career to focus on the fight for her freedom as a person. It was here that the #FreeBritney movement was born and, likewise, the controversial story with her father.
What happened between Britney Spears and her father?
From that moment on, the long struggle that the artist has had to go through to free herself from the legal guardianship of her father, Jamie Spears, would begin. Her followers echoed this movement, through social networks and around the world.
So much scope and relevance had this issue, that in 2021 Framing Britney Spears was released, a documentary that deals with her problems to recover the guardianship of her own life.
However, it was not until that same year, 2021, when, in November, the American singer got the judge to remove the guardianship and give her back the freedom for which she had fought for so many years.
She claims that her father tried to kill her
Britney has spoken out on several occasions about this problem that has accompanied her since childhood. She has explained, for example, how her father handled her money without her having any access to it. However, this is by no means the strongest thing she has told.

A few days ago, the artist used her official Twitter profile to go further with this story. Britney has even said that she felt that her father tried to "kill her" and that she has lived "15 years in a system of secret and manipulative abuse".
