It’s all anybody’s been talking about for weeks: how to help Britney Spears escape the awful conservatorship controlling her life. After appearing in court to beg for freedom – alleging years of horrifying abuse at the hands of loved ones – friends say the singer is now quietly amassing an army of A-list allies to help, with everyone from Miley Cyrus to Paris Hilton to Katy Perry and ex-boyfriend Justin Timberlake stepping in.

“Britney has a lot of famous friends who are desperate to help,” says an insider close to the 39 year old, who has been living under an intense court-ordered regime since 2008.

“Miley, Katy and Paris have all been regularly messaging her via Instagram, as they knows it’s the one outlet she has. They’re all offering what advice they can and have told Britney to continue meditating and practising self-care methods while working on an escape route with her new legal team. They’ve even offered to set up a legal fund for her.”

Another surprising ally comes in the form of Justin, who apologised in February for the way he treated Brit after they split in 2002. Last week he also tweeted, “No one should EVER be held against their will… let her live however she wants to live.”

Our source continues, “Justin has been in touch with Miley and Katy to offer his support in any way he can. He doesn’t want his tweets to be empty promises, so he’s spoken to some lawyers to see what he and Britney’s other A-list friends could do. The problem is that, to end her conservatorship, Britney will need to testify in court again and have all kinds of assessments – which she’s said she doesn’t want to do. Her friends are really worried about her getting trapped in an endless legal battle.”

Last week, heat told you how Britney finally spoke out about her situation, reading a four-page document to a judge. She detailed disturbing facts about being put on drugs against her will, not being allowed to see friends or her boyfriend of five years, Sam Asghari, at times. She also said she was prevented from getting married or having more children. Her moving testimony sparked outrage online, with plenty of A-listers offering support, including her former Mickey Mouse Club co-star Christina Aguilera and Mariah Carey.

Britney’s ex-husband and dad to their two boys, Kevin Federline, also spoke out via a lawyer, saying he wants her to be “happy and healthy”. Britney’s little sister, Jamie Lynn later posted a video on Instagram, in which she said, “If ending the conservatorship... or whatever the hell else she wants to do to be happy, I support that. I am so proud of her for requesting new counsel like I told her to do many years ago.”

Despite all last week’s drama, Britney did manage to escape for a holiday in Hawaii with Sam, where she shared a beach video on Instagram. Beside it, she wrote, “Well damn … I did it again!!!! Maui part 2!” Clearly making the most of the R&R, she added, “I like the sound of the ocean at night and I like hearing people laughing from my balcony.”

Our source continues, “So many people want to help Britney, and just knowing she has people fighting for her has helped so much. Whatever happens next and whether she ever makes it out of this conservatorship hell or not, having friends like this means everything to her.”
