Britney vs Spears director defends new Netflix documentary

Britney vs Spears director Erin Lee Carr has insisted she created the Netflix documentary to back up claims the singer made in court.

Just hours after the Toxic hitmaker lashed out at a different documentary attempting to share information about the singer’s life, the new Netflix project was released to the world.

Taking to Twitter to share her pride at the release of her passion project, Erin wrote: ‘so proud of #BritneyVsSpears which is out in the world. i started working on it 2.5 years ago and much was unknown.

‘i know it’s an incredibly sensitive subject and we worked tirelessly to make sure we were providing the information that backed up what britney said in court..’

The American filmmaker continued: ‘we did this through investigative reporting and fact-checking. to be honest, i loved looking at footage of her, and not a single day would go by where i wouldn’t marvel at her talent and undeniable charisma. i could not have done this without @jennylsq [journalist Jenny Eliscu] 2/3

‘The team at @netflix and @storysyndicate_ always had our back considering the immense obstacles we went through.’

Britney is yet to react to the Netflix documentary, but she has previously called out the New York Times’ project, Framing Britney Spears and Controlling Britney Spears.

The Lucky singer took to Instagram to address the second film on Tuesday, writing: ‘It’s really crazy guys… I watched a little bit of the last documentary and I must say I scratched my head a couple of times!!!

‘I really try to disassociate myself from the drama !!! Number one … that’s the past !!! Number two … can the dialogue get any classier??? Number three … wow they used the most beautiful footage of me in the world!! What can I say .. the EFFORT on their part!!!’

Britney vs Spears is available to stream on Netflix.
