A documentary about Britney Spears was released over the weekend on FX, Framing Britney Spears, which brought new details about the singer’s troubled history into the spotlight.

Spears has lived under the legal guardianship of her father, Jamie Spears, since 2008. Jamie holds  power over his daughter’s personal and business decisions as her conservator, but he has stepped back from this role due to health problems. Spears has voiced her desire that anyone other than her father take the position, but Jamie has refused to leave the role.

Framing Britney Spears, which is directed by Samantha Stark, looks at celebrity culture and how it might have contributed to the singer’s well-documented breakdown.

Paris Hilton and Rose McGowan have previously stated that they believe Spears should be granted her rights back, but ever since the debut of the Framing Britney Spears, more and more celebrities have called for Britney to be “freed.” Check out some of the posts below from Sarah Jessica Parker and Andy Cohen.
