Britney Spears Causes #FreeBritney Controversy After Putting Herself On 'Timeout'

By Jeff Mazzeo

Britney Spears has been hammering her Instagram feed pretty hard amid the chaos of her conservatorship, and now fans are speculating on whether she's taking a shot at her Toxic team.

Brit posted a meme Thursday night of a 20's-era exhausted woman laying back in a chair along with the text, "I’ve put myself in timeout until I can play nice with other. This may take a while."

The singer added her own fair with the meme and captioned it, “A while ?? How bout a decade !!!!!"

The suspect caption caused a real “Circus” with fans, with everyone speculating on what she was talking about.

People could not decide whether Britney was referencing the 10-year conservatorship that she's been under from her team, or if she's planning on taking a 10-year hiatus amid the public controversy she's been dealing with.

Fans sounded off in the comments by writing, “Yesss Blackoutney time to speak up about what really happened.”

Another questioned, “A decade? What kind of cryptic message is this?"


Many fans are connecting the caption to the #FreeBritney movement, the grass roots organization who believes the 37-year-old singer has been denied her freedom and quality of life because of the team of advisors, which includes her dad, Jamie Spears.

The Blast broke the story back in June after Spears’ father filed a defamation lawsuit against a guy who claimed the pop star's team was doctoring her IG page to make her appear unstable.

According to the court documents obtained by The Blast, the account in question claimed that Spears’ team had been "deleting positive comments on her Instagram post and leaving negative ones to keep up the illusion that she needs help."

Britney and Jamie, who filed the lawsuit in his role as conservator, claim they "have sat by while fans accused them of numerous false and malicious things, including attempts to mislead the public with the content that appears on her social media."

Spears and her team are suing for defamation and seeking unspecified damages and the lawsuit remains ongoing.
