AceShowbiz - Paris Hilton's mother and sister have shared their response to Britney Spears' mention of the "This Is Paris" star at her conservatorship hearing. Despite the fact that the "Baby One More Time" hitmaker confessed that she doesn't believe "The Simple Life" alum's claims of boarding school abuse, Kathy Hilton and Nicky Hilton declared that they fully supported the pop star.
When making an appearance on "Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen" on Wednesday, June 23, Nicky and Kathy declared that they were still supportive of Britney. "[Britney] should know we believe her," the 37-year-old socialite admitted. She then exclaimed, "Free Britney!" Her 62-year-old mom chimed in, "She's such a sweet girl and a good girl."
During her virtual court conservatorship hearing in Los Angeles Superior Court, Britney spoke about Paris' abuse allegations against a boarding school that she attended. The "House of Wax" actress previously accused staff at the Provo Canyon School in Utah of being "evil and sadistic" towards her and other students.
"To be honest with you, the Paris Hilton story on what they did to her at that school, I didn't believe any of it. I'm sorry," Britney told a judge. Of the allegations, the "Toxic" singer said, "Mainly I didn't want to say it openly because I honestly don't think anyone would believe me."
Britney explained further, "I'm an outsider and I'll just be honest, I didn't believe it and maybe I'm wrong and that's why I didn't want to say any of this to anybody to the public." The 39-year-old pop star went on reasoning, "Because I thought people would make fun of me or laugh at me and say, 'She's lying, she's got everything, she's Britney Spears.' I'm not lying. I just want my life back."
Paris herself once talked about Britney's conservatorship during an episode of "Watch What Happens Live" in September 2020. "I feel like if you are an adult, you should be able to live your life and not be controlled," she shared her thoughts. "I think that maybe stems from me being controlled so much so I can understand how that would feel and I can't imagine right now if that was still happening to me."
"After just working your whole life and working so hard, she's this icon," Paris told host Andy Cohen. She went on to note, "And I just feel like she has no control of her life whatsoever and I just don't think that's fair."
