Framing Britney Spears finally aired in the UK this week following its American premiere. The documentary analyses the rise of the 1990s pop princess and her subsequent media vilification over her risqué image and personal life. The programme also looks into the Free Britney movement and the conservatorship she is currently under which sees her finances managed by others.
Are Britney Spears’ parents divorced?
Framing Britney Spears also features some archival footage of the singer’s parents including material from the MTV reality series Britney: For the Record.
Jamie and Lynne wed back in 1975 and have three children together Britney, eldest Bryan and Jamie Lynne, who is the youngest.
The couple both grew up in Kentwood, Louisiana and knew one another from a young age as they were living in the same town.
Nonetheless, they did not start seeing each other until they attended college, according to Lynne’s memoir Through the Storm (2008).
They dated for a while as their romance blossomed but it wasn’t easy for the young couple.
Jamie was previously married and then divorced, something which Lynne’s religious parents did not approve of.
Lynne wrote: “My parents weren’t crazy about him at first, which made it a little bit sticky, to say the least.
“They were not impressed that Jamie had been married before, and they seemed to think I could do better for myself.”
They eventually eloped with Lynne’s parents unable to stop the union.
But the marriage was far from a happy one with Lynne documenting Jamie’s battles with alcohol.
“My union with Jamie came apart slowly, in sad little pieces,” she said in her memoir.
Lynne added in the book how the marriage breakdown didn’t have anything to do with her daughter’s rise to fame.

She wrote: “By the time she became successful, I had already made up my mind to divorce Jamie.”
The couple got divorced in 2002 but are reported to have reconciled in 2010.
In the documentary, Britney’s mother Lynne is said to want a role in her daughter’s conservatorship.
The conservatorship has reportedly put her parents at odds with each other.
A source told Us Weekly in 2020: “Lynne wants a care plan established that would transition Britney’s personal life out of the conservatorship.
“Jamie has told her that Britney needs long-term monitoring, and he doesn’t think she is prepared to take such a drastic action.”
The insider went on to say: “With the conservatorship being extended until the beginning of 2021, Jamie was relieved because all he wants is to keep Britney safe and at her best.”
However, Jamie is reported to have lost a court request in which he sought to have further control over the pop star’s finances.
This ruling means her father and private trust company the Bessemer Trust have equal powers.
Britney’s conservatorship was first put in place in 2008 over mental health concerns for the star.
Britney is now trying to remove the conservatorship after appearing in court in 2019 and providing documents to end the arrangement.
