Christina Aguilera slammed Britney Spears' 13-year conservatorship in a passionate series of tweets, calling it "the most depleting, devastating and demeaning thing imaginable."
The remarks came nearly a week after the "Toxic" singer's explosive conservatorship hearing, in which Spears leveled serious allegations against her conservators and her family and pleaded with a judge to end the conservatorship, which was established in 2008.
"These past few days I’ve been thinking about Britney and everything she is going through," Aguilera tweeted while sharing a throwback photo of the two during their "Mickey Mouse Club" days. "It is unacceptable that any woman, or human, wanting to be in control of their own destiny might not be allowed to live life as they wish."
In a follow-up, the "Beautiful" singer continued, "To be silenced, ignored, bullied or denied support by those ‘close’ to you is the most depleting, devastating and demeaning thing imaginable. The harmful mental and emotional damage this can take on a human spirit is nothing to be taken lightly."
"Every woman must have the right to her own body, her own reproductive system, her own privacy, her own space, her own healing and her own happiness," Aguilera argued, adding in another tweet, "While I am not behind the closed doors of this very layered & personal yet public conversation – all I can do is share from my heart on what I’ve heard, read and seen in the media."
Aguilera, 40, said Spears' testimony rattled her, saying, "The conviction and desperation of this plea for freedom leads me to believe that this person I once knew has been living without compassion or decency from those in control."
"To a woman who has worked under conditions and pressure unimaginable to most, I promise you she deserves all of the freedom possible to live her happiest life," the "Burlesque" star concluded. "My heart goes out to Britney. She deserves all the TRUE love and support in the world."
Jamie Lynn Spears addressed her sister's situation on Monday, saying, "I'm so proud of her for using her voice."
Britney Spears also used her voice to speak out on Friday, in her first social media post since her public hearing. In the post, she apologized to her followers on Instagram for not being more transparent about her actual life and using the social media platform as an escape from her reality.
