Tiger King star Carole Baskin has voiced her support for Britney Spears saying the singer ‘should be in the wild’.

In a video made for Brit fan Daniel John on Cameo, Carole – who appeared in the hit Netflix documentary – says she ‘knows something about conservatorships’ and feels the popstar is ‘being treated like a caged tiger’.

‘It’s not right, and I know something about conservatorships, oh my gosh. Once those things are in place it’s just nothing but a free-for-all for all of these attorneys to just gobble up as much of the money as they can possibly get their greedy little grubby paws on. So free Britney,’ Carole says in the video.

‘She should be in the wild. And she should really be wary of others, especially those closest to her. Stay cool, cats. Free Britney.’

John explained to Insider that he asked her to say the last line in reference to one of Britney’s tracks Rebellion.

The singer’s father Jamie held power over her conservatorship for 11 years due to concerns about Britney’s mental health.

He managed the 38-year-old’s financial affairs and daily life until he stepped down in September 2019.

Since then, Jodi Montgomery has become Britney’s temporary conservator.

Carole’s comments come after Britney’s brother Bryan called the conservatorship ‘very frustrating’.

Speaking on the podcast As Not Seen On TV, he said: ‘She’s been in this thing for quite some time now. ‘Obviously there was a need for it at the beginning that I assume everyone knows the issues that were going on, and now they’ve made some changes and all we can kinda do is hope for the best.’

He added: ‘In the beginning, it was hard. What I think got us all through it – all of us have been pretty close all these years. I mean, normal fights, normal, “Alright, I’m mad at you for a week” family stuff, but nothing ever major where everyone quits speaking. we haven’t ever had that.’

He said that, overall, the conservatorship has been ‘a great thing’ for the family.

The fan-created #FreeBritney movement has called for the Toxic singer to be ‘freed’ from her conservatorship.

A course case is ongoing in Los Angeles to determine whether the arrangement will be extended beyond 22 August.
