The Backstreet Boys are showing their support for Britney Spears. The group recently spoke to ET and weighed in on the high-profile legal drama surrounding the pop icon.
AJ McLean, Nick Carter, Howie Dorough, Brian Littrell and Kevin Richardson joined ET’s Lauren Zima as they promoted their upcoming series of holiday shows in Las Vegas, sending a message of love to the singer.
“I would say stay strong, support your terrain and we will pray for you,” shared McLean, as his bandmates nodded in solidarity.
McLean added: “I hope you get what you deserve, which is your freedom.”
Spears has been embroiled in an ongoing and highly public legal battle for her guardianship, which erupted into the public sphere in June with her emotional testimony during a hearing.
