Spears, who survived the controversial legislation last week, shared an Instagram story last night (November 19), expressing her displeasure at the televised moment.
During the conversation, a reporter asked Aguilera if she had had any contact with Spears since her guardianship ended.
Aguilera’s press advisor intervened and said, ‘No, we’re not doing this tonight. Sorry,’ distracting the singer from the reporter mess.
‘But I’m happy for him,’ added Aguilera, grimacing and telling the reporter she couldn’t answer the question.
Sharing the video on her Instagram account, Spears commented:
I love and adore everyone who supports me, but refusing to speak when you know the truth is tantamount to lying!
I’ve been in a corrupt, abusive system for 13 years, but why is this so hard to talk about? I live this! Thank you to all the supporters who spoke out and supported me… Yes, I am important!
In the same series of Instagram Stories, Spears thanked Lady Gaga, who gave a lengthy answer when asked about the end of her guardianship.
‘Thank you, Lady Gaga, for generously taking the time to say such a kind thing,’ Spears wrote.
You made me cry! I love you.
Aguilera expressed her support for the pop star in June, after Spears testified in court earlier in the guardianship case. Aguilera and Spears rose to fame as child stars on Disney’s Mickey Mouse Club and later as pop megastars in the 1990s.
Earlier in the day, Spears said she believes her parents ‘should be in jail’ for the way they treated her in guardianship.
