Britney Spears Accuses Her Family of Being Complicit in Conservatorship

0

Britney Spears has leveled criticism at her family, accusing them of being complicit in her controversial conservatorship.

The “Toxic” singer, 39, has been under the arrangement since 2008, when her personal and financial affairs were placed in the hands of her father, Jamie Spears, following concerns for her mental health.

Britney Spears has openly spoken out about her objection to being under the conservatorship on a number of occasions, and testified in June about the restrictions the arrangement placed her under.

She received an outpouring of support from fans and celebrities alike, after alleging that she was made to perform, take medication and wear a contraceptive device against her will.

And as the star edges closer to having her conservatorship dissolved altogether, the star took to Instagram on Tuesday to share her thoughts on her family.

Sharing a picture that depicted a woman lying on a mattress as another swam toward her, the mother-of-two wrote: “This picture is everything to me !!! It makes me want to cry … she’s saving her divine feminine sister 🧜🏻‍♀️ !!!!

“I suggest if you have a friend that’s been in a house that feels really small for four months … no car … no phone … no door for privacy and they have to work around 10 hours a day 7 days a week and give tons of blood weekly with never a day off … I strongly suggest you go pick up your friend and get them the hell outta there !!!!!”

The pop icon then took aim at her family, while also praising her “amazing” attorney, Mathew Rosengart, who has led her court battle since July.

She wrote: “If you’re like my family who says things like ‘sorry, you’re in a conservatorship’ … probably thinking you’re different so they can f*** with you !!!! Thankfully I found an amazing attorney Mathew Rosengart who has helped change my life 🌹!!!!”

The singer didn’t specify which members of her family she took issue with, or state what they are alleged to have done.

Over the summer, Britney Spears and her younger sister, Jamie Lynn Spears, appeared to take multiple shots at one another on their respective social media accounts. Britney Spears has been openly critical of her father in court.

Meanwhile, the star’s divorced parents, Jamie Spears and Lynne Spears also engaged in a war of words throughout the conservatorship battle.

With Lynne Spears publicly siding with her daughter, Jamie Spears took aim at his former wife in an August court filing as he agreed to step down from the conservatorship.

“Instead of criticizing Mr. Spears, Lynne should be thanking him for ensuring Ms. Spears’ well-being and for persevering through the years-long tenure requiring his 365/24/7 attention, long days and sometimes late nights, to deal with day-to-day and emergency issues—all to protect Ms. Spears and those around her charged with protecting his daughter,” read the filing.

“Lynne has had only limited involvement in Ms. Spears’ life these last thirteen years. She has not had a parental role in her life for decades,” the filing continued.

For her part, Lynne Spears said at the time that she was “pleased Jamie has agreed to step down” in a statement shared with The New York Times.

“Lynne entered into this conservatorship to protect her daughter almost three years ago. She has accomplished what she set out to do,” the statement added.

Britney Spears last week scored a huge court victory, when a judge ordered that Jamie Spears be suspended from the conservatorship.

He had overseen the personal and financial arms of his daughter’s life from 2008 and 2019, when he stepped down from the former, citing health reasons.

Jodi Montgomery then took over to oversee Britney Spears’ person, a position she continues to hold. Accountant John Zabel has now succeeded Jamie Spears.

All parties are scheduled to return to court on November 12 to discuss the logistics of dissolving the conservatorship.
