The #FreeBritney movement has gained two allies with Republican congressmen Matt Gaetz and Jim Jordan, and they're already putting up a fight.
The issue was recently reignited following the release of the 2021 documentary Framing Britney Spears, which follows the pop star's court-ordered conservatorship struggles with her father.
In a hearing request sent to the Judiciary Committee, Gaetz and Jordan cite the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), which says individuals are being "stripped of virtually all of their civil rights through guardianships and conservatorships."
The congressmen believe the case of Spears and her father is the "most striking example" of this happening, and believe it's time to get a deeper look into the process with the House Judiciary Committee.
CBS News reports that the Judiciary Committee has not yet denied or accepted the request for a hearing.
