Following Britney Spears’ explosive public statement against her longtime conservatorship in a Los Angeles Superior Court hearing on Wednesday (June 23), Justin Timberlake took to Twitter to send “absolute support” to his ex-girlfriend.
“After what we saw today, we should all be supporting Britney at this time,” Timberlake tweeted Wednesday. “Regardless of our past, good and bad, and no matter how long ago it was… what’s happening to her is just not right.”
In his three-tweet thread, Timberlake also referenced Spears’ claim that the conservatorship hasn’t allowed her to remove her implanted IUD birth control device in order to have more children.
“No woman should ever be restricted from making decisions about her own body,” he wrote. “No one should EVER be held against their will… or ever have to ask permission to access everything they’ve worked so hard for.”
In his final message, Timberlake said that he and wife Jessica Biel send love and offer their “absolute support” to Spears. “We hope the courts and her family make this right and let her live however she wants to live.”
Timberlake and Spears dated from 1998 to 2002 after initially meeting as kids on The All-New Mickey Mouse Club. The New York Times documentary Framing Britney Spears that came out on FX and Hulu in February focused on the star’s controversial conservatorship as well as the imbalanced media treatment of Timberlake and Spears in the wake of their high-profile breakup.
