After word spread that Spears' younger sister, Jamie Lynn, has been selected as trustee of the chart-topper's estate, Cher shared a link to a news article, alongside some commentary. "She worked hard, was the golden goose, made lots of money, got sick, now she's the cash cow," she wrote. "Does anyone who’s making money off her being sick want her well!? Someone who doesn’t want anything from her should look into her Dr. and her meds."
Cher ended the post with three duck emojis, asking, "Is it a duck?" in reference to the old motto: "If it looks like a duck, swims like a duck and quacks like a duck, it’s probably a duck."
Afterward, one #FreeBritney advocate replied to the message to share his sadness over the possibility that Spears is being taken advantage of by "greedy family members." As for the style icon's response, she wrote, "Everyone in Vegas heard stories."
Earlier this month, Spears' attorney said that the singer "strongly opposed" to having her father, Jamie Spears, as the conservator of her person. After he stepped down from the role, citing health issues, after allegedly physically abusing her son, Sean Preston, in September 2018, a court appointed conservator by the name of Jodi Montgomery was put in his place. Montgomery is expected to remain in charge of Spears' personal and professional decisions until February 1, 2021.
Cher has a long history with Sin City as one of their original show girls to hit the strip. At the moment, the star has a residency at the Park Theater in Las Vegas, the same venue that Spears was set to perform at in 2019 with her "Domination" residency. In her cancellation message, the superstar cited her father's failing health as the reason for pulling the plug. Later on, Spears told a Los Angeles court that her father forced her into a mental health facility to take drugs against her will.
