Netflix did it again!
The streaming service is leaving fans at the edge of their seats after it released a preview of the first trailer of its new documentary on Britney Spears with the title Britney vs. Spears.
Netflix shared on Tuesday, September 21, an 18-second clip featuring an alleged voicemail from the pop star to a lawyer on January 21, 2009, after midnight.

The speaker says, “Hi, my name is Britney Spears. I called you earlier. I’m calling again because I just wanted to make sure that during the process of eliminating the conservatorship…”
The audio stops there and then a text on the screen appeared teasing fans to wait for the full trailer which will be available on Wednesday, September 22.
Based on the preview, Britney’s conservatorship battle started more than 10 years ago. It took a long time before her father and conservator, Jamie Spears, submitted to the court a petition to finally end her conservatorship.
As fans know, it was in 2008 when she was placed under conservatorship after she was hospitalized due to psychiatric treatment. Her dad was given almost all control over her financial and medical affairs. She was then appointed a temporary co-conservator in 2019 though her dad remained her estate’s co-conservator.
A few months ago, the 39-year-old music icon and mother of two testified about her experiences being under the conservatorship. According to her, Jamie is ruining her life. She then asked for him to be removed as her conservator. Meanwhile, he defended that he did everything out of love and care for his daughter.
Just recently, Britney shared the good news that she and her long-time boyfriend Sam Asghari are finally engaged. She’s been very vocal about how supportive Sam has been throughout her conservatorship battle and now that they’re engaged, the couple is a step closer to having their happily ever after.
Meanwhile, Britney vs. Spears is directed by Erin Lee Carr and isn’t the only TV event to feature the singer’s legal battle. In February this year, The New York Times Presents released a special on FX entitled “Framing Britney Spears”, which many believed served as an eye-opener on her current situation.
On September 26, CNN will also be airing a special report, Toxic: Britney Spears’ Battle for Freedom.
