BRITNEY Spears discussed the reason she shaved her head during her 2007 meltdown with a tattooist moments after the act.
The singer, 39, sheared off her locks with a pair of clippers at a hair salon, after her ex, Kevin Federline, reportedly wouldn't let her see their two kids, Sean and Jayden.
While Britney's battle with her conservatorship has been detailed in the new documentary Framing Britney Spears, it's another film about the popstar's life that delved into her most famous public stunt.
The 2019 documentary, Britney Spears – Breaking Point, reveals the reason Britney shaved her head, which was kept secret for 12 years.
After chopping off her locks, Britney turned up at Body and Soul Tattoo studio where she confided in tattooist Emily Wynee-Hughes.
Emily said in the documentary: "I noticed her hair was gone. I remember asking her, 'why did you shave your head?' And her answer was a bit weird.
"It was, you know, 'I just don't want anybody, anybody touching my head. I don't want anyone touching my hair. I'm sick of people touching my hair.'"
Britney asked for a tattoo of another woman's lips to begin with, then a small cross.
Emily claims no one on her team tried to help or intervene, adding: "It just didn't seem like they cared very much. I've felt this insane sense of anxiety and energy that felt so negative.
"It just seemed like everybody was waiting for the crash to happen."
The hair shaving incident happened after she fled from rehab in Antigua.
She turned up at her ex Kevin's house and demanded to see their sons, but he allegedly refused.
This led to Britney driving to an LA hair salon and asking to have her head shaved. When the hairdresser tried to talk her out of it, Britney grabbed the clippers and did it herself.
Afterwards, the singer was placed under conservatorship, which meant her dad Jamie had control over her financial and personal assets.
Following backlash to the agreement after Framing Britney Spears' release, the star finally had a breakthrough in her legal fight against her dad.
Last week, an LA judge ruled that Jamie will no longer have sole control of her multi-million dollar fortune following public outcry supporting the #FreeBritney movement.
A source close to Britney told The Sun: "Since Jamie's health has improved, Britney does everything she can to avoid spending time with her father."
Though Jamie once suffered from a colon rupture in 2019, leading Britney to shut down her Las Vegas residency, the source said the 68-year-old has recovered from the setback.
"His health seems to have improved after a long period of everyone being worried he wouldn’t make it.
"Those around her feel Jamie uses guilt tactics when it comes to spending time with him. He uses his ailing health and tries to get her to help take care of him.
“Jamie wants to have a close relationship with Britney but with the conservatorship in place, it's become close to impossible."
While Britney's fans want to overthrow the conservatorship, members of the singer's team – aside from her mom, sister and Sam – still do not believe the singer is ready for full emancipation and needs her dad's support.
The source added: "Even though the court has now approved a co-conservator, her team feels Jamie has been a huge support to Britney and are confident she needs this type of help. It's truly a terrible situation."
Meanwhile, Britney's songwriter Claude Kelly said the singer was "treated like a toddler" by her team.
Claude, who worked on her 2008 album Circus shortly after Jamie, 68, took control, told The Sun: “She’s 39 and she’s been doing this a long time, it doesn’t make sense that she’s being handled like a toddler who has no rights."
Claude went on: “The whole thing brings up a bigger issue of human rights and it doesn’t make sense to remove the right for people to live the way they want to live.
“There’s hundreds of other celebrities that have had pretty tough times like public breakdowns, public divorces or embarrassments and they haven’t needed to lose all of their rights.
“If that’s the case then we should all be worried because we are all going to f*** up, fall short and make mistakes.
“God forbid that someone can come in, whether it’s your father or your mother, your husband or your wife or whatever and decide, ‘You no longer have the right to decide how you live your life’.”
