“I have talked to Jamie Lynn [Spears, Britney’s sister] recently, which is why I feel so much better about this situation. They aren’t as worried as we are. [People] have no idea what’s really going on. So we just have to trust that the loved ones around her are doing the right thing. The one thing that I do know is, I know Jamie Lynn…If Jamie is OK with everything going on, I feel like she really has her sister’s back during all this. So I trust her to give us the real information. I totally support #FreeBritney. I hope everyone figures out exactly what is happening in her life. I do believe that things are settling the way they should be…There’s a judge in charge of all this, so we really need to just trust the judge in the situation and know that things will work out for the best. We all love her and I’m very open to finding out what’s going on, but at the end of the day you’ve no idea what’s going on.”–Singer Lance Bass, commenting on the ongoing conservatorship of longtime friend Britney Spears. Bass told Entertainment Tonight that there’s more to the story but declined to share further details. Spears has remained in the conservatorship of her father, Jamie Spears, since 2008 amid reports of substance abuse and psychiatric problems.
