Netflix have announced a surprise new Britney Spears documentary, titled Britney VS Spears, and have released an unheard audio clip of the singer to tease us.

They tweeted the teaser on Tuesday, with a full trailer set to be released today (Wednesday, September 22).

In the 11-second-clip you can hear Britney leaving a voicemail for a lawyer, recorded on January 21 2009 at 12:29a.m.

She says: "Hi, my name is Britney Spears, I called you earlier.

"I’m calling again because I just wanted to make sure that during the process of eliminating the conservatorship…," and then the clip dramatically ends.

The timing and content of the clip would suggest that Britney wanted to end her conservatorship just a year after her 2008 public mental health breakdown that led her to enter it in the first place.

Back in June in court this year the 39-year-old popstar likened the conservatorship to abuse. It has seen her father, Jamie Spears, manage her finances and wellbeing for 13 years.

Among other things, she alleged that it had stopped her marrying or having kids with Sam Asghari, who is now her fiancee after he proposed earlier this month.

Also earlier this month, Jamie shockingly filed a petition to step down from the legal arrangement following months of backlash.

The filing read: "Ms Spears has told this Court that she wants control of her life back without the safety rails of a conservatorship.

"She wants to be able to make decisions regarding her own medical care, deciding when, where and how often to get therapy. She wants to control the money she has made from her career and spend it without supervision or oversight.

"She wants to be able to get married and have a baby, if she so chooses. In short, she wants to live her life as she chooses without the constraints of a conservator or court proceeding."
