The TV personality claimed in a chat with Chanel Omari that he reached out to Britney to apologize for his behavior before the documentary aired.
“I have apologized privately recently before the documentary. It was in December,” he said on Chanel’s podcast, Chanel In The City.
“I went through this big emotional break in December and one of the things that I wanted to do, my idea, not even my therapists was, I felt it was important for me…”

Perez went on: “It’s kind of like the things that people often do in 12 step programs. They’ll reach out to people that they have wronged and apologize.
“And even though I had apologized before, there’s nothing wrong with apologizing again or differently. So I did. And she was one of the few people that I reached out to in December.”
After the death of Heath Ledger in 2008, Perez released a shirt design on his gossip site with an image of Heath in the film, Brokeback Mountain.
It featured the words: “Why couldn’t it have been Britney?”

Britney’s fans flooded social media with their outrage at Perez’s actions after watching her Hulu documentary, which was released earlier this month.
“Have you apologized to Britney Spears for all of the horrible things that you said about her? You lack professionalism and you need to apologize,” one viewer insisted.
Another added: “He needs to canceled by The Cancel Culture. He regrets getting called out.”
Elsewhere in the podcast, Perez discussed Britney’s conservatorship and said her father should not have control of her financial and personal assets.
He was criticized for how he reported on Britney’s actions around the time she shaved her head

“I do not believe that Britney Spears is not being held against her will. I do believe that she’s unhappy with certain aspects of the conservatorship,” he said.
“I absolutely feel that her father should not be her conservator. She does not want him in that role anymore.
“And we’ve learned so much about him. That should be obvious to anybody that the role that he served has run its course and it’s time for him to stop.”
The star (seen with boyfriend Sam Asghari) has received an outpouring of support in recent weeks
