Madonna revealed she is in contact with Britney Spears amid her former collaborator’s ongoing conservatorship battle.
The iconic musician opened up about the pair’s recent communication as she turned heads at the premiere of her upcoming concert film, Madame X in New York on Thursday.
Speaking to Entertainment Tonight about her relationship with Britney, the 63-year-old said the pair had spoken on the phone the day before.
Madonna explained she was “just checking in on her, and congratulating her on her marriage. Or pending marriage. I love her.”
Spears recently announced her engagement to her boyfriend of five years Sam Asghari, following months of legal drama with her father Jamie Spears over what she described as an “abusive” conservatorship.
Madonna has been vocal about her support for Spears and the #FreeBritney movement throughout her fellow pop superstar’s conservatorship battle.
The filmmakers behind Framing Britney Spears — which received some criticism from Spears — will release another new doc, Controlling Britney Spears, Friday, September 24th. The doc will air on FX and be available to stream on Hulu.

“She’s way more talented than I was, [or] am,” Madonna added. “I’m really proud of her.”
The 24-year-old model recently appeared in Rihanna’s third Savage X Fenty show, which Leon teased Tuesday by sharing a series of photos on Instagram of herself rocking a teal latex bra, panties and thigh-high boots and a matching robe.
