Britney Spears has hit out at her mother Lynne Spears, saying she secretly “ruined” her daughter’s life by coming up with the idea of putting her under a conservatorship.
The “Toxic” singer condemned her mother in a comment on a since-deleted Instagram post on Tuesday (2 November), according to screenshots shared on social media.
“The moment I SMILE and I realise I haven’t in a very long time!!!!” Britney Spears wrote. “My mom gets so CONCERNED and says ‘You’re acting weird… what’s wrong with you???’ I say ‘Hi, my name is Britney Spears… nice to finally meet you!!!’”
The singer thanked her family for “exiting” her life, suggesting that the looming end of her conservatorship means she will finally be able to live as she sees fit.
She added: “My dad may have started the conservatorship 13 years ago… but what people don’t know is that my mom is the one who gave him the idea!!!! I will never get those years back… she secretly ruined my life… and yes I will call her and Lou Taylor (Britney’s former business manager) out on it.”

Spears continued: “So take your whole ‘I have NO IDEA what’s going on’ attitude and go f**k yourself… You know exactly what you did… my dad is not smart enough to ever think of a conservatorship… but tonight I will smile knowing I have a new life ahead of me!!!!”

Spears’ latest comments come after a turbulent few months for the star. In June, she sent shockwaves across the world when she spoke out against her conservatorship for the first time during a virtual hearing at a Los Angeles court.
During that appearance, Spears suggested that her conservatorship – which was put in place in 2008 following a mental health crisis – was “abusive”. She also claimed that those involved in the arrangement had prevented her from having children and from marrying her partner Sam Asghari.
Spears’ dramatic court testimony led to her being granted the opportunity for the first time to hire her own legal counsel. She is now represented by Mathew Rosengart, a Hollywood legal powerhouse and former federal prosecutor who has fought tirelessly to have the singer’s father removed from the controversial arrangement.
There was widespread jubilation among fans when judge Brenda Penny immediately removed Jamie Spears from the conservatorship in September. Another court date has been set for 12 November to discuss the complete termination of the arrangement.
Meanwhile, Britney Spears has become increasingly outspoken about her situation on her Instagram account. The singer has shared moving accounts of how the conservatorship has made her feel over the years – and she has repeatedly hit out at her family for standing by and allowing it to continue for as long as it has.
