Britney Spears hasn't been able to fully live her own life for 13 years, stuck in a court-sanctioned conservatorship. A new documentary by The New York Times examines what the public might not know about the pop star's court battle with her father for control of her estate. It also explores the fervent fan base that is convinced Spears should be liberated from the conservatorship, and re-examines the media's handling of one of the biggest pop stars of all time.

Producer-director Samantha Stark told Variety that the NYT did not approach Justin Timberlake for a comment on his treatment of the singer as they didn't ask a number of other people who appear in archival footage for comment: "Interviewees make points about the media coverage surrounding the breakup... Unlike other people who we did ask for comment, we don't make any allegations against Justin. We simply let the footage play." See more
