Country singer reflected on her legal battle with her former singing partner Porter Wagoner
During a remote appearance on a special episode of ライブで何が起こるかを見る, host Andy Cohen relayed the following viewer question to the country singer: “What is your take on the Free Britney Spears movement and everything going on with Britney?」
Parton’s response was: "上手, I try to not get involved in other people’s business. I think she’s a wonderful artist and I think she’s a wonderful girl. I only wish her the best.
“And I understand all those crazy things. I went through a lot of that myself through a big lawsuit in my early days with Porter Wagoner, trying to get out on my own. So I understand where she’s coming from and how she feels. So I hope that all turns out the way that it should.”
Parton’s former singing partner Wagoner filed a $3m (£2.1m) breach of contract lawsuit against Parton in 1979 that was settled out of court, with Parton later saying: “It took me a while to pay it off, but he got the first million dollars I ever made.”
The Free Britney Movement has seen fans of the singer campaign for years to have her liberated from the conservatorship that has controlled her money and affairs since 2008.
Speaking in open court for the first time in 13 years in June, Spears said: "私は幸せではない, 眠れない. 私はとても怒っていますよ, 非常識です. そして私は落ち込んでいます. 前回お話しした時 [裁判官]…私は死んだように感じました. 私は嘘をついていないので、もう一度お話しします…だから、深さ、程度、そして被害を理解できるかもしれません…私は変化に値します。」
During proceedings, Spears also claimed her team did not want her to become pregnant with another child. 「私は結婚して赤ちゃんを産むことができるようになりたいです," 彼女は言いました. 「私は妊娠しないように自分の中にIUDを持っています, だが [私のチームはしません] これ以上子供が欲しいのです。」
She also claimed she was made to take lithium against her will, and asked for an end to the “abusive” conservatorship.
