Britney Spears has admitted she doesn’t know “who to trust”, as the investigation into her conservatorship continues.
In a candid post on Instagram, the 37-year-old shared a quote which read: “Pay close attention to the people who don’t clap when you win.”
The mother-of-two captioned the post: “Living in LA is such a trip!!! It can be lonely at times.”
“You never know who to trust, and some people can be fake. I have a very small circle of friends, and simply do what makes me happy!!!”
“It breaks my heart to see the comments on my posts sometimes …. so I simply choose not to look anymore … let the clever haters do what they do best …. hate!!!” (sic)
Britney’s post comes amid reports that her conservatorship is being evaluated, after she appeared in court back in May – and accused her father of forcing her to enter a mental health facility earlier this year.
The singer appeared in court alongside her parents to speak to a judge who oversees her conservatorship, which was established in 2008 after she suffered an alleged breakdown.
A conservatorship is an involuntary status usually reserved for elderly or very ill people who are suffering from dementia or otherwise incapacitated and unable to make decisions for themselves.
Britney’s father Jamie has been in charge of his daughter’s assets since the conservatorship was established, however the agreement doesn’t give him the power to put her into a facility without her consent.
The 37-year-old is now allegedly demanding more freedom, and told a judge that her father made her check into a Los Angeles unit for 30 days on April 3, after she stopped taking her doctor-prescribed medication.
According to The Sun, Britney’s mother Lynne, who divorced Jamie in 2002, has taken her daughter’s side.
After hearing Britney and her parents speak in court, the judge ordered an 730 expert evaluation, a process usually used to determine the mental health and competence of a parent in a divorce case.
Outside the courthouse, a host of the singer’s fans were protesting outside, holding signs which read “Free Britney” and “End the conservatorship now”.
Britney appeared in court after the hashtag #FreeBritney started trending on Twitter in April, after Britney was admitted into the mental health facility.
Despite fan’s concerns at the time, Britney reassured them that all was well in a video posted on Instagram.
