Britney Spears has slammed people “who never showed up” for her, amid her ongoing conservatorship battle.
The 39-year-old is currently fighting to end her conservatorship, which was established in 2008 after she suffered an alleged breakdown.
Taking to Instagram on Friday night, the pop singer lashed out at those “closest” to her who failed to support her until now.
Britney posted a lengthy message on Instagram, alongside an image of a quote that reads: “Never forget who ignored you when you needed them and who helped you before you even had to ask.”
The mother-of-two wrote: “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!”
“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,” she continued.

“So 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!”
Although Britney didn’t name anyone in her post, fans have already pointed the finger at her sister Jamie Lynn Spears – who recently spoke out about Britney’s conservatorship battle for the first time.
One fan commented: “@ Jamie Lynn this is for you girl.” Another wrote: “JAMIE LYNN IS SHAKING.”
Other followers suggested Britney’s message was directed at her ex-boyfriend Justin Timberlake, who tweeted about her conservatorship last month.
The news comes after Britney won the right to appoint her own lawyer to represent her, former federal prosecutor Mathew Rosengart.
Britney spoke in court on Wednesday via phone, where she said she wanted to “press charges” against her father for “conservatorship abuse”.
In an emotional testimony, the singer said: “I’m here to get rid of my dad and charge him with conservatorship abuse. This conservatorship is literally allowing my dad to ruin my life.”
The mum-of-two said she was “extremely scared” of her father, and that she is not willing to be evaluated in order to remove him from her conservatorship.
“Their goal was to make me feel crazy, and I’m not,” she added. “And that’s not OK.”
Britney was placed under a conservatorship after she suffered an alleged breakdown in 2008.
A conservatorship is granted to those who are incapable of making decisions, such as people with mental disabilities.
The arrangement put her estate, financial assets, and some personal assets under the control of her father Jamie, and lawyer Andrew Wallet – who has since resigned from the role.
The pop star’s conservatorship has been under review since 2019 after she accused her father of forcing her to enter a mental health facility.
In November last year, the songstress tried to have her father removed as her conservator, but her request was denied.
Instead, a judge named wealth management firm the Bessemer Trust as co-conservator of her estate, alongside her father.
However, Bessemer Trust has since resigned from the role.
Britney’s longtime manager Larry Rudolph also resigned from his role earlier this month amid her legal battle.
