Ariana Grande Tells Britney Spears She's 'Loved & Supported' After Court Hearing

Ariana Grande has joined an ever-growing chorus of celebrities showing their support for Britney Spears as the pop superstar fights for an end to the conservatorship that has controlled her personal life and finances for a decade-plus.

On Wednesday, a court ruled that Spears could choose her own attorney in her conservatorship battle, and the "...Baby One More Time" hitmaker celebrated the ruling with a social post that trumpeted the viral #FreeBritney hashtag for the first time. In the comments section, Grande sent love to her pop predecessor.

"You are so very loved and supported," Grande commented in all-caps, flanked by white heart emojis.

It's unclear whether Grande and Spears have ever met or interacted, though Grande did pay tribute to the pop legend by impersonating her signature vocals on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon back in 2015 and singing a snippet of Spears' "Womanizer" on Snapchat that same year.

In Spears' Instagram caption Wednesday, Spears thanked her dedicated fans, writing, "You have no idea what it means to me be supported by such awesome fans !!!! God bless you all !!!!!"

Also in the comments section was Latin star Paulina Rubio ("I love you #freebritney") and Spears' boyfriend Sam Asghari: "Internet is about to explode #FreeBritney."
