Britney Spears fans slam Perez Hilton as he defends star’s conservatorship

Britney Spears' fans have hit out online after Perez Hilton appeared in new BBC documentary The Battle For Britney.

Super-fans of the Swimming With The stars songstress argue that Perez shouldn't be given a platform due to his infamously savage attacks on Britney during her darkest days.

Speaking to Mobeen Azhar on the BBC Two documentary, Perez explained that he regrets how he hounded and humiliated the pop icon.

During the chat, the outspoken star admitted he thinks without the controversial conservatorship, Britney would "be dead".

While he wasn't speaking in full support of the legal hold that Britney's dad Jamie Spears has over his daughter, Perez also didn't call for it to be dissolved.

As the show aired on Thursday night, one fan hit out: "Perez Hilton is to Britney Spears as is Piers Morgan to Meghan Markle," alongside a vomiting emoji.

Another added: "Not the BBC platforming Perez Hilton on this Britney doc…"

A third chimed in: "Perez Hilton is the lowest of the low.

"Why they even got him to talk on this BBC Two Britney Spears documentary is beyond me, the things he said and the way he treated her when she had her mental breakdown was absolutely disgusting and unforgivable. #freebritneyspears."

  • Britney Spears’ court-appointed lawyer 'has earned more than £4m since conservatorship'

A fourth hit out: "Watching the Britney documentary on BBC Two and the vile Perez Hilton shows his face as a contributor.

"After spending years writing the most vicious stuff about her."

In 2009 Perez was asked by Britney's camp to shoot a video to play at in the opening moments of her Circus World Tour Show.

Talking about the gig at the time, Perez blogged on his site: "Britney was down with the idea and we, of course, said yes!

  • Britney Spears conservatorship could be 'fraudulent' due to her 'mental health'

"We are thrilled to be a part of it!"

Despite praising the show at the time, Perez went on to claimed Britney 'wasn't very functional' when he appeared on the Australian edition of I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here.

He claimed to his campmates: "She still wasn’t 100 per cent all there.

"Like, that tour they would wheel her around everywhere, they’d put her in a cage and wheel her around because she still wasn’t very functional."
