On Wednesday, June 23, Britney Spears finally broke her silence on 'abusive' conservatorship which allegedly left her 'traumatised' and 'depressed'. During her virtual court hearing, Britney said that the 'conservatorship is doing me way more harm than good' and mentioned that she is not happy and wants her life back. A day after her conservatorship hearing, Britney took to Instagram to share a quote about fairy tales by Albert Einstein and in her caption, the singer mentioned that she was embarrassed to share her story.
She also apologized for 'pretending' to be OK on social media when she was clearly not happy in her life. She wrote, 'I just want to tell you guys a little secret... I believe as people we all want the fairy tale life and by the way I've posted.. my life seems to look and be pretty amazing.. I think that's what we all strive for!!! That was one of my mother's best traits... no matter how shitty a day was when I was younger.. for the sake of me and my siblings she always pretended like everything was ok. I'm bringing this to peoples attention because I don't want people to think my life is prefect because IT'S DEFINITELY NOT AT ALL.. and if you have read anything about me in the news this week.. you obviously really know now it's not!!!'
'I apologize for pretending like I've been ok the past two years... I did it because of my pride and I was embarrassed to share what happened to me.. but honestly who doesn't want to capture their Instagram in a fun light!!! Believe it or not pretending that I'm ok has actually helped.. so I decided to post this quote today because by golly if you're going through hell... I feel like Instagram has helped me have a cool outlet to share my presence... existence... and to simply feel like I matter despite what I was going through and hey it worked... so I've decided to start reading more fairy tales!!!,' she added.
For the uninitiated, Britney has been under the conservatorship of her father for more than a decade. Her father, James 'Jamie' Spears, petitioned a Los Angeles court to name him and an attorney named Andrew Wallet as conservators over Britney's 'person' and her $60 million fortune. Post her heartbreaking testimony, many celebrities including Mariah Carey, Halsey and others came out in support of the singer and demanded freedom for the singer.
