Britney Spears’ friend Sam Asghari shared a photo of herself wearing a Free Britney T-shirt ahead of the singer’s last hearing about the conservatory, which she was put under more than a decade ago.
The singer was taken care of by her father, Jamie Spears, in 2008, during which time he was responsible for various aspects of her daily life as well as her finances.
Britney will speak about the deal in a U.S. court on Wednesday, with Sam apparently showing her some support on Instagram hours earlier.

In a selfie that was posted on his Instagram story, he was seen next to a lion emoji with a T-shirt with the slogan “Free Britney”.
The night before, he gave a motivational speech about lions that said, “The lion is the king of the jungle. He’s not the biggest, the fastest, or the smartest … how does a lion become king of the jungle? His mentality. “
Britney hasn’t spoken publicly about the Conservatory since the 2009 MTV documentary Britney: For The Record, but last year she moved to replace her father as her legal guardian.
Her attorney told a Los Angeles court that Britney had a strained relationship with her father and alleged she had also told him “on many occasions” that she was “afraid” of Jamie Spears.
The star’s attorney added that Britney refused to perform while her father was still in charge of her estate.

While Britney kept silent about the conservatoire battle, Sam – who was born in Iran – wrote on Instagram in February: “I have no respect for someone who tries to control our relationship and keeps throwing obstacles in our way.
“I think Jamie’s a total ass. I will not go into details because I have always respected our privacy, but at the same time I did not come to this country in order not to be able to express my opinion and freedom. “
