'It wasn't right': Cher slams Britney Spears' father for mistreating singer during conservatorship
'No matter what, you love your children, and I didn't like it,' Cher said
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Cher was apparently troubled by the way Britney Spears was treated while she was under conservatorship.
After a conservatorship overseen by her family ended in November 2021, the 41-year-old superstar regained control over her multimillion-dollar wealth and many facets of her life. Now, fellow pop icon Cher, 77, has stated that her father Jamie Spears' actions "weren't right."
Cher feels Jamie Spears' actions were 'not right'
"I don't think it was right what her father did. It seemed to serve him. The help that she needed and needs, if she still needs it, I hear things...no matter what, you love your children and I didn't like it," she told Extra.
In 2017, the 'Believe' hitmaker shared a residency in Las Vegas with Britney and admitted to being aware of what was going on. She added, "When we were in Las Vegas, everybody on the strip knew. We just didn't know how deep it was. Everyone would say, 'Oh she's medicated.' When people talk, they multiply it but I knew there was a grain of truth in it. "
Britney Spears' conservatorship
The 'Lucky' singer was placed under conservatorship in 2007 due to personal problems. Since the arrangement was terminated, she has claimed that her father, who was named conservator from the beginning, turned her into a "robot" while she finished her four-year stay in Sin City and her world tour.

In her new memoir 'The Woman in Me', she said, "I had been so infantilized that I was losing pieces of what made me feel like myself. The conservatorship stripped me of my womanhood, made me into a child. I became more of an entity than a person onstage. I became a robot. But not just a robot - a sort of child-robot."
Jamie Spears justified conservatorship
Nevertheless, Jamie has stated in the past that Britney used the conservatorship as a "resource" to help her work in order to pay back her financial obligations. Jamie said, "She had no money whatsoever. The conservatorship set a resource where she could get back financially. And, you know, we worked - and she worked - and she got herself straight up financially."
