Drew Barrymore: Britney Spears sent me smoke signals | Entertainment
Drew Barrymore claimed Britney Spears sent him “smoke signals” in response to home videos she sent him in the midst of her battle to end her guardianship.
The ‘Blended’ star – who had previously chosen to “willfully” support Britney “silently” rather than join the #FreeBritney movement online – revealed that she sent the 39-year-old pop icon video messages from ‘encouragement’ and offered her support if she needed it.
The former child star told ‘Entertainment Tonight’: “[I wanted to] really show her that I’m someone who understands what a trip is – and I don’t compare myself to her – but I’m there to support her if there’s anything she needs in private. “
The host of the “Drew Barrymore Show” insisted that Britney, whose father Jamie controlled his person from the start of guardianship in 2008 until he resigned in 2019 due to health concerns, has the right to live his life and make mistakes and is the “key to his freedom”.
She added: “I’m very invested in this. I think everyone deserves the chance to have their life right, wrong and everything in between. “It’s become such a public interest because it’s about something bigger.
“It’s about being allowed to live her life. And so, I put myself in it and I really want her to regain her freedom.”
Drew shares how she supported the “Lucky” singer as Britney draws closer to victory, as her father calls for an end to his guardianship after 13 years.
In court documents filed this week, Jamie said “recent events” and “changing circumstances” suggest that her daughter’s need to control her estate, finances and medical care “may no longer exist.”
The file reads as follows: “Recent events related to this guardianship have called into question whether the circumstances have changed to such an extent that the grounds for establishing a guardianship may no longer exist.
Ms. Spears told this court that she wants to take back control of her life without the safety rails of a guardianship. She wants to be able to make decisions about her own medical care, decide when, where and how often to follow. therapy. She wants to control the money she made from her career and spend it without supervision or supervision. She wants to be able to get married and have a baby, if she wants to. In short, she wants to live her life as she does. ‘hear without the constraints of a curator or legal process. “
He also said: “As Mr. Spears has said time and time again, all he wants is the best for his daughter. If Ms. Spears wants to end the guardianship and thinks she can manage her own life, Mr. Spears thinks she should be given that chance. “
However, Britney’s attorney, Mathew S. Rosengart, responded to the petition and vowed to continue investigating her father’s “financial mismanagement and other issues” after being accused of attempting to extort 2 million dollars to his daughter.
