Justin Timberlake has come under fire after he gave his backing to his ex Britney Spears.
Yesterday the pop star told in her conservatorship battle hearing that she felt like a "slave".
The songstress said in a powerful court address: "I'm so angry I can't sleep, and I am depressed. I want to be heard… I want changes and I want changes going forward. I deserve changes."
Britney told the court: "I just want my life back, it's been 13 years and it's enough. It's enough and it makes no sense at all… I'm done."
She also made a worrying claim that she had been 'forced to use an IUD by her conservators'.
Later Justin took to Twitter to give his support to The Oops… I Did It Again hitmaker.
He said: “After what we saw today, we should all be supporting Britney at this time. Regardless of our past, good and bad, and no matter how long ago it was…what’s happening to her is just not right.”
In other tweet he addressed Britney’s IUD claim and said he and his wife Jessica Biel were backing the star.
He said: “No woman should ever be restricted from making decisions about her own body. No one should EVER be held against their will…or ever have to ask permission to access everything they’ve worked so hard for.
"Jess and I send our love, and our absolute support to Britney during this time. We hope the courts, and her family make this right and let her live however she wants to live.”
Justin issued an apology to Britney in February after the documentary Framing Britney Spears was released.
The documentary led to criticism of how he treated her during and after their relationship and featured archive clips of Timberlake discussing his sexual relationship with the singer.
And some Twitter users reckon it isn't appropriate that Justin is now supporting her as he contributed to the turmoil she's currently going through.
One said: "Justin Timberlake has the audacity to advocate for Britney Spears now. #FreeBritney"
Another wrote: "Justin timberlake played a major part on how the media treated her, slut-shamed her, and objectified her but okay."
A third added: "You played a role in this too you’re not a hero just because you’re talking about this now to get some good press and be painted as a hero. We see what you’re trying to do."
