Hannah Spears, Britney’s Yorkshire Terrier, best known for her Twitter antics, has been a famed pet since November 2012. Hannah has a big bark when it comes to her tweets despite her small size. However, Hannah couldn’t handle the fame, and her Twitter profile has since been deleted. This doesn’t mean the popular Yorkie has decided to take a hiatus from the life of luxury though. A short while ago, Britney had been reported spending $25,000 on toys, treats, spas, and other dog accessories. It was reported in court documents that Britney spent $8,212 for the initial purchase of Hannah.
Lacey Loo Spears
In court documents released from her split with her boyfriend, David Lucado, Britney spent $5,568 on the purchase of a Maltese dog in January 2013. That dog is named Lacey Loo Spears and was worth every penny. She keeps Lacey Loo in the latest of doggie fashion and has been known to feed her filet mignon in restaurants. Lacey Loo apparently has had some digestive issues in the past causing her to toot in front of friends and fans. Spears was advised not to give the little pup so many treats.
Sam Asghari gifted a new Doberman puppy named Porsha to his fiancé, Britney Spears in October 2021. Porsha came on the heels of Britney Spears’ dognapping controversy (see below). When he gave the pup to Spears, Sam Asghari told her, “Her name is Porsha, and she’s meant to unconditionally love you and is going to be trained to protect you from any motherf–kers who come around you with bad intentions.” Woof!
Britney Spears, also known as the Princess of Pop, is an American pop idol who came into fame during the late ’90s and early 2000s. She’s known to love smaller dogs like Maltese and Yorkies. Besides her incredibly successful singing career, Britney Spears has starred in movies like Crossroads and done a number of cameos. Widely reported on, her conservatorship has placed her and her family at the center in the public eye. Spears’ accolades include hundreds of musical awards including a Grammy and at only 21, she was inducted into the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Spears has sold over 100 million records worldwide, making her one of the world’s best-selling music artists.
Britney Spears truly needs no introduction — but Britney Spears’ dogs might. And remember, this level of fame doesn’t come without drama.
Britney Spears Had Her Dogs Taken Away, Then Returned
Britney Spears loves her pups so much she’s willing to fight for them.
In August of 2021, Britney Spears’ dog sitter and a housekeeper took her dogs to the vet. And then, failed to return them. After the dognapping, the singer allegedly slapped a phone out of her housekeeper’s hand. The housekeeper supposedly accused Britney of mistreating her dogs — as if Britney didn’t have enough on her plate in 2021. But, the housekeeper broke household rules by taking a photo inside the house, allegedly of the sick dog.
There is speculation that her father, Jamie Spears, had something to do with the dognapping heist. His involvement is unknown but likely, as it happened during the fight over her conservatorship. Britney Spears’ dogs have returned to her safely since.
Despite the lack of violence, someone called the cops — an action an insider has called an “exaggerated reaction to the situation.” The accusations seem unfounded since Britney reportedly spent $30,000 treating her dogs like royalty in 2014 alone. Eventually, Britney Spears’ dogs were returned safe and sound.
The #FreeBritney Movement
Britney owns a white Maltese that she bought for $5,568 and a Yorkie named Hannah, which cost the singer $8,212. Her most recent pooch is a Doberman puppy named Porsha, gifted by fiancé Sam Asghari. Porsha is, apparently “trained to protect [Spears] from any motherfucker that comes around with bad intentions,” as cheekily said by Sam Asghari. Porsha came after the dognapping drama with Spears’ housekeeper, making you wonder who exactly Sam means by those with bad intentions.
As much as her conservatorship has weighed on her, Britney Spears’ dogs are always taken of.
The #FreeBritney Movement
The #FreeBritney movement focused on freeing Britney from her conservatorship and releasing her from her fathers’ control. The conservatorship began in 2008 but when Britney checked into a mental health facility in 2019, fans raised the alarm. The #FreeBritney movement gained more traction and Britney has publicly stated she wants it to end. And, throughout the whole drama, Britney Spears’ dogs have been constant, furry companions.
Notable #FreeBritney celebrity supporters include Cher, Paris Hilton, and Miley Cyrus. The fight for Britney’s freedom has resulted in dozens of documentaries, outspoken celebrity support, and widespread interest regarding her conservatorship status.
In 2021, Britney broke from her conservatorship and announced her engagement to Sam Asghari. Her sister, Jamie Lynn Spears, has come under fire for not supporting her sister during her conservatorship. Britney Spears’ has made cryptic Instagram posts about her sister and an insider said she does not “feel supported” by her sister.
Spears’ Career and Performing with Animals
Britney Spears’ long and successful career began when she was eleven-years-old in the Mickey Mouse club alongside Christina Aguilera, ex-boyfriend Justin Timberlake, and Ryan Gosling. She has since performed with the likes of Madonna and collaborated with both Rihanna, Will.i.am, and Iggy Azalea. Britney’s performed for close to a thousand shows throughout her career and holds six number-one albums on the Billboard 200. Since Hit Me Baby One More Time shot her to international stardom, Britney has hardly slowed down.
One of Britney Spears’ most iconic shows was the 2001 VMA’s where she perform Slave 4 U with a python wrapped around her shoulders. The amelanistic Burmese python is often dubbed ‘Banana’ in tabloids — some say the singer herself nicknamed the snake — however, the actual name of the snake remains unknown. It was reported that Britney was nervous initially to perform with the snake around her shoulders but soon the singer focused and gave one of the most impressive shows of her career.
During that iconic show at the VMA’s, Britney Spears also walked out from a cage with a liger inside (that’s a half tiger, half lion). That tiger’s trainer — Bhagavan “Doc” Antle — is also featured on Tiger King. The controversial docuseries shows Antle’s relationship as a mentor to Joe Exotic and has Carol Baskins speak out against him for animal cruelty.
In 2009 under her conservatorship, Britney Spears’ Circus international Circus tour took place. While the live shows contained no live animal performers, Spears was still dragged by PETA for her use of them during the VMA’s and the Circus music video.
Britney Spears’ and PETA Controversy
Britney Spears’ performance with the Burmese python and liger during the 2001 VMA’s sparked controversy with PETA. It’s not a surprise, as PETA has come for other celebrities, like Lady Gaga. Other celebrities they support include Bradley Cooper, for casting his pooch during his role alongside Lady Gaga in A Star is Born.
Their website states: “PETA opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview, and focuses its attention on the four areas in which the largest numbers of animals suffer the most intensely for the longest periods of time: in laboratories, in the food industry, in the clothing trade, and in the entertainment industry. We also work on a variety of other issues, including the cruel killing of rodents, birds, and other animals who are often considered “pests” as well as cruelty to domesticated animals.”
