According to the official logline, Britney vs Spears tells the explosive story of Britney's life and her public and private search for freedom. Director Erin Lee Carr (How To Fix a Drug Scandal, Dirty Money) and journalist Jenny Eliscu delve into the tangled weave of the conservatorship.

In response to the trailer, Sam - who proposed to Britney earlier this month, commented on Instagram: "I hope the profit from these docs go towards fighting against injustice #freebritney"

Lady Gaga's manager, Bobby Campbell, echoed Asghari's sentiments and called for transparency about "how or whether the filmmakers are profiting" from the documentary.

He added: "Even if it is in support of freeing Britney, this appears it could be exploitative."
