Justin Timberlake is voicing his support to #FreeBritney.

Following Britney Spears's explosive and emotional 24-minute court address yesterday, speaking out against her 13-year conservatorship, the pop star's early-aughts boyfriend came to her defense on social media. During the singer's virtual court appearance, she expressed that she had been lying to the world "for years" regarding her emotional well-being under her conservatorship and described the legal predicament over her personal and professional life as "abusive."

"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. No woman should ever be restricted from making decisions about her own body," Timberlake wrote on Twitter, referencing Spears's claims that her father and management team are preventing her from getting married and having another baby with her longtime boyfriend, Sam Asghari, by keeping her on an IUD, a form of birth control.

"No one should EVER be held against their will… or ever have to ask permission to access everything they've worked so hard for," Timberlake continued.

Timberlake ended his note by saying that he and his wife, actress Jessica Biel, send their love and support to Spears and hope that the courts will act in her favor and soon free her from the constraints of her conservatorship.

"Jess and I send our love, and our absolute support to Britney during this time," Timberlake wrote. "We hope the courts, and her family make this right and let her live however she wants to live."
