In the early days of Britney Spears' conservatorship, singer-songwriter Claude Kelly worked with her on her 2008 studio album "Circus."

In the latest episode of Behind The Velvet Rope with David Yontef, Kelly, 40, shared his insights into his working relationship with the pop star, 39.

During an interview, Kelly described Spears as being totally professional and said she wasn't a prisoner while working with him.

The first thing Kelly divulged was that he co-wrote the title track "Circus" with Dr. Luke and that Spears chose to record it.

"She's very professional," he said. "There's the media side of what they say about her. And then there's the studio. I'm sure that's how she is."

As Kelly observed, Spears appeared to be focused almost as much on dancing as singing.

"She's not a train wreck or a mess like people want her to be in the studio," he said.

During studio time, Kelly said most professional singers behave like Spears since studio time is expensive.

After she was put under conservatorship, Spears recorded the studio album "Circus" for the first time. Kelly claimed the singer's father wasn't in the recording studio during the recording session.

When Kelly was asked about the "New York Times Presents documentary Framing Britney Spears," he reiterated that he had no personal relationship with her and only worked with her professionally.

But Kelly pointed out that as a person with empathy, he believes everyone feels bad for people who are not in a good place or cannot do the things they desire.
