Sam Asghari weighs in on the new documentary 'Britney vs. Spears'

The upcoming Netflix documentary premieres on September 28. 

Britney Spears' fiancée, Sam Asghari, is speaking out on the new Netflix documentary Britney vs. Spears. After the streaming service posted the trailer for the upcoming film on its official Instagram, the 27-year-old model took to the comments section to share his thoughts.

"I hope the profit from these docs go towards fighting agains [sic] injustice #freebritney", Asghari wrote, seemingly referencing another documentary about the hitmaker's conservatorship battle: Framing Britney Spears, which was released earlier this year. 

Britney vs. Spears is set to premiere on Netflix on September 28 —a day before an upcoming court hearing in which Britney's lawyer, Mathew Rosengart, hopes to finally remove Jamie Spears as conservator of the 39-year-old singer's estate.

Directed by Erin Lee Carr, the 95-minute documentary "tells the explosive story of Britney’s life and her public and private search for freedom", according to the official synopsis from Netflix. "Featuring years-long investigative work, exclusive interviews and new documents, this Netflix feature film paints a thorough portrait of the pop star’s trajectory from girl next door to a woman trapped by fame and family and her own legal status."

In a recent interview with the Los Angeles Times, Carr said that Britney vs. Spears won't feature traumatic images that have previously defined Britney, such as those from her highly-publicized 2007 mental breakdown. 

"I specifically made the creative decision that we were not going to utilise the same imagery that she has said before is traumatising", Carr told the outlet. "The incidents that happened in 2007 during one of the episodes at the hospital — you're never going to see those."

The new documentary comes weeks days after Britney made a return to Instagram after suddenly deactivating her account. The singer later explained that she took a social media break to celebrate her engagement to Asghari, who proposed on September 12.
