Britney Spears publicly addressed the court Wednesday (June 23) with an incredibly harrowing account of her controversial conservatorship, and her Hollywood peers came out to voice their continued support for the #FreeBritney movement.

During the hearing in Los Angeles, the 39-year-old superstar revealed some of the extreme expectations placed on her since the conservatorship began in 2008, when her father, Jamie Spears, was given full control over his daughter’s financial and personal affairs. During her public statement, the singer likened her conservatorship to sex trafficking with how much she was being forced to work, how closely she was monitored, and how she’s not allowed to get married or have a baby because of her birth control that she’s not allowed to remove.

“I am not here to be anyone’s slave,” she stated.
