Taryn Manning, who co-starred with Britney Spears in the movie "Crossroads," has weighed in on the Free Britney movement.
On Saturday, July 18, Manning shared a photo from the 2002 film featuring Spears, Zoe Saldana, Anson Mount and herself on her Instagram account.
"Such a wonderful time with this crew!" the "Orange is the New Black" actress wrote. "Britney I know you're strong af and have your own brain and thought process. To me you look happy and like you're having a blast! Keep up the happy posts and your faith in Jesus Christ."
The 41-year-old continued, commenting on the controversy surrounding the pop singer's ongoing conservatorship, which she's been under since 2008.
"How about instead of #freebritney we say #GodIsWatchingOverBritney. How about let's give this wonderful woman the dignity she deserves and earned. Until you know the facts stop speculating and perpetuating the father of lies. We all know she's under a type of control that's unfair and things will be fixed. Have faith. Wish her well! Send good vibes of no fear! Please! #alldarknesscomestolight," she wrote.
Spears, 38, was put under a conservatorship after an extremely public mental breakdown and subsequent psychiatric hold. Her father, Jamie Spears, was her longtime conservator, until he stepped down last year. The "Piece of Me" singer's former care manager, Jodi Montgomery, has taken over the role, making all personal, health and business decisions for the mother of two.
The Free Britney movement is not new; Spears herself even addressed it last year in a video while she was seeking mental health treatment.
"Hi guys, just checking in with all of you who are concerned about me," she said in an Instagram video in April 2019. "All is well. My family has been going through a lot of stress and anxiety lately, so I just needed time to deal. But don't worry: I'll be back very soon."
