Documentary Coaching Britney Spears made a lot of noise in the United States. In the documentary there are many criticisms of the way the singer was treated in the media at a young age. As a result, fans and celebrities alike are speaking out for Spears. Due to the recently released film, Ivo Niehe has received a lot of criticism on social media.
A protest movement has even been relaunched: #Freebritney, it’s ringing on social networks. The reason for the hashtag is that Spears has been in receivership from her father Jamie since 2008. The judge ruled that the pop star could no longer take care of herself after a public depression. During this time, she shaved her head and was constantly pursued by the tabloid press. She was eventually admitted to a psychiatric clinic.
She has been doing better since then and has resumed her career, but her father is still her administrator. He is appointed to take care of her because, according to a judge, she is unable to do so on her own. James Spears has had control over almost all of Britney. This arrangement is now the subject of much criticism: how is it possible that a woman of almost 40 years is still in the care of her father? Spears has disputed this to no avail several times in recent years.
Coaching Britney Spears, a New York Times production, declares that Spears is the victim of a male world that takes advantage of her. Over the years, she became more and more upset by the image she painted of herself in the media.
Ivo Niehe under fire
The documentary includes a fragment with Ivo Niehe as an illustration. Spears was a 17-year-old guest in the TROS TV Show and was addressed by Niehe on her breasts. According to some tabloids, they had been enlarged by plastic surgery.
