Britney Spears continues to speak out against those who allegedly hurt over the course of her 13-year-long conservatorship, including her father, Jamie Spears, and younger sister, Jamie Lynn Spears. On Saturday (July 17), the pop superstar once again took to Instagram to tell her side of the story.
“For those of you who choose to criticize my dancing videos … look I’m not gonna be performing on any stages anytime soon with my dad handling what I wear, say, do, or think!!!! I’ve done that for the past 13 years,” Britney captioned a text post that reads: take me as I am or kiss my a**, eat s**t and step on legos.
"I'd much rather share videos YES from my living room instead of onstage in Vegas where some people were so far gone they couldn't even shake my hand and I ended up getting a contact high from weed all the time ... which I didn't mind but it would have been nice to be able to go to the mother f***ing spa," she continued.
Britney also confirmed speculation that she will not perform as long as she remains under the conservatorship of her father. "I'm not gonna put on heavy makeup and try try try on stage again and not be able to do the real deal with remixes of my songs for years and begging to put my new music in my show for MY fans ... so I quit," she declared.
She then went on to criticize Jamie Lynn for performing a medley of her hit songs at the Radio Disney Music Awards back in 2017. "I don't like that my sister showed up at an awards show and performed MY SONGS to remixes," she continued. "My so-called support system hurt me deeply !!!! This conservatorship killed my dreams ... so all I have is hope and hope is the only thing in this world that is very hard to kill ... yet people still try."
This post was shared shortly after Britney slammed those "closest" to her for their insincere public support. In her first post, Britney didn't name any names as she did in her follow up, however, many fans seemingly correctly guessed she was referring to her younger sister.
"There’s nothing worse than when the people closest to you who never showed up for you post things in regard to your situation whatever it may be and speak righteously for support … there’s nothing worse than that !!!!" Britney wrote. "How dare the people you love the most say anything at all … did they even put a hand out to even lift me up at the TIME !!!??? How dare you make it public that NOW you CARE … did you put your hand out when I was drowning ???? Again … NO."
"If you’re reading this and you know who you are … and you actually have the nerve to say anything about my situation just to save face for yourself publicly !!! If you’re gonna post something …. Please stop with the righteous approach when you’re so far from righteous it’s not even funny….and have a good day !!!!!" she continued. "PS if you’re reading this today and you can relate …. I’m sorry because I know what it’s like … and I send you my love !!!!"
On Wednesday (July 14) a judge granted singer Britney permission to hire her own lawyer in her ongoing conservatorship battle, which the pop star sees as a huge victory.
