After 30 days at a mental health facility, Britney Spears is out at last. But that doesn't mean that she's entirely "free."
She reportedly wants to clear the air and tried to set up a tell all interview to reassure her fans and to detail recent events in her life.
There's just one problem: her own parents are shutting her down.
RadarOnline reports that Britney Spears is in conflict with certain members of her family over what she can and cannot tell the public.
And, in particular, with her mother.
"Things are getting tense between Britney and Lynne right now," and insider reveals.
"Britney wants to do an interview," the source explains.
The insider reasons that Britney wishes to do so "because she knows her fans are so worried."
That's absolutely right.
Fans are worried about her well-being but we're also about her personal freedoms. She's a full-on adult.
"But," the source explains. "She’s up against opposition."
Apparently, Britney's parents are balking at the idea that she could just do an interview.
The insider claims that this reluctance is "due to the fact that every interview she’s done after a meltdown is always a hot mess."
Apparently, the stern veto came from Britney's mom.
"Lynne literally shut her down on an interview," the source claims.
"And," the insider reports, Lynne is "also is talking to Britney like she’s a little kid."
That sounds really unpleasant, though sometimes parents at any age forget that their offspring are adults.
The source characterizes that Lynne "is up her a-- 24/7."
If fans are hoping to see Britney defiantly get interviewed anyway, they shouldn't hold their breath.
"Britney knows if she doesn’t follow the rules," the insider says. "She could lose the progress she’s made."
She loves her fans, but she has to look out for herself.
"Britney just wants her mom to leave her alone," the source reports.
"And the more Lynne pulls," the insider claims. "The more Britney pushes."
In late March, Britney voluntarily checked herself in to a mental health facility for 30 days of treatment to get herself back on track.
Her father, Jamie Spears, has suffered a serious health crisis, and reports say that it had really gotten to her.
However, some truly wild and frankly unsubstantiated reports claimed that Britney was being held against her will.
This prompted familiar cries of "Free Britney" from some of her stans, some out of genuine concern and others out of a desire to treat her like a meme.
The outcry was so intence that Britney actually addressed her fans on Instagram while she was supposed to only be worrying about her well being.
We should keep in mind that, just like the claim that Britney had been forced into rehab and secretly locked up since January, reports of the feud with her mom are also unconfirmed.
We don't know that Britney was itching to do a tell-all interview.
Similarly, we don't know that anyone prevented her from doing so, let alone that it was specifically her mother.
As always, however, we wish Britney the absolute best.
She's a talent and a treasure and she deserves the world.
