Perez Hilton is ready to say sorry to Britney Spears, reported Entertainment Weekly.

The gossip writer says he has newfound remorse for the pop star after reading her plea to end her conservatorship.

"I can't say I was just young and dumb. I think we know a lot more and I think a lot of folks, myself included, were shocked and alarmed for her young children," Hilton said, EW reports. "I know I didn't express myself as well as I could have. I didn't lead with empathy and compassion," he continued. "I absolutely apologize and carry deep shame and regret."

If he could talk to her now, Hilton said he would hug her.

"I think she just needs love, because I cannot imagine the betrayal and the sadness and the emptiness that she must feel believing and knowing and experiencing this total lack of not support," Hilton said, EW reports.

On Wednesday, Hilton tweeted his support for Spears, joining othersthrough the #FreeBritney movement, including her most famous ex-boyfriend Justin Timberlake.

"After what we saw today, we should all be supporting Britney at this time," Timberlake tweeted.
