Britney Spears Says Her Family 'Should All Be in Jail' Over Conservatorship

Britney Spears has lashed out at her family, stating that they "should be in jail" for their role in her controversial conservatorship.

The pop star, 39, was under the arrangement—which saw her personal and financial decisions taken out of her hands—for almost 14 years, until it was officially dissolved in a momentous Los Angeles County Superior Court ruling last Friday.

Her father, Jamie Spears, had overseen the conservatorship since it was initially implemented in 2008, amid mental health concerns for the "Toxic" singer.

He stepped down from the personal arm in 2019, citing health reasons, but was suspended from the financial branch in September.

And Britney Spears, who has been openly critical of her family over the months that she battled to be released from the conservatorship, has hit out at them again in an Instagram post shared on Tuesday.

The star shared a video of herself discussing what she plans to do now that she is free from the conservatorship, as she hinted at a tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey.

And in an accompanying caption, the "I'm a Slave 4 U" hitmaker described the arrangement as "demoralizing and degrading," while she singled out her mother, Lynne Spears, who she recently accused of initiating the conservatorship.

"I might as well do a hint of my thoughts on the gram before I go and set things square on @Oprah 🤔😜🤷🏼‍♀️ !!!!!" the star wrote. "I mean who knows ... I do know how embarrassing is to share the fact I've never seen cash or wasn't able to drive my car."

She added that it "honestly it still blows my mind every day I wake up how my family and the conservatorship were able to do what they did to me ... it was demoralizing and degrading !!!! I'm not even mentioning all the bad things they did to me which they should all be in jail for ... yes including my church going mother !!!!

"I'm used to keeping peace for the family and keeping my mouth shut ... but not this time ... I have NOT FORGOTTEN and I hope they can look up tonight and know EXACTLY WHAT I MEAN !!!!"

Britney Spears has previously accused her family of being complicit in her conservatorship. She has also taken apparent swipes at her younger sister, Jamie Lynn Spears, in Instagram posts.

Answering fans' questions about what she plans to do next now that she's free of the arrangement, Britney Spears said on Tuesday: "I've been in the conservatorship for 13 years. It's a really long time to be in a situation you don't wanna be in.

"So I'm just grateful, honestly, for each day. And being able to have the keys to my car, and being able to be independent and feel like a woman, owning an ATM card, seeing cash for the first time, being able to buy candles."

"It's the little things for us women," she went on, "but it makes a huge difference and I'm grateful for that. It's nice. It's really nice."

However, she added: "I'm not here to be a victim. I lived with victims my whole life as a child. That's why I got out of my house and I worked for 20 years and worked my ass off. I'm here to be an advocate for people with real disabilities and real illnesses.

"I'm a very strong woman, so I can only imagine what the system has done to those people. So hopefully my story will make an impact and make some changes in the corrupt system."

She also thanked her fans who launched the #FreeBritney movement and spoke out against the conservatorship for years before it was finally brought to an end.

"You guys rock, honestly," Britney Spears said of the movement. "My voice was muted and threatened for so long and I wasn't able to speak up or say anything.

"Because of you guys and the awareness of kind of knowing what was going on and delivering that news to the public for so long, you gave an awareness to all of them... I honestly think you guys saved my life in a way, 100 per cent."

The star, who announced her engagement to Sam Asghari in September, also revealed that she's considering having another baby. She had previously testified in June that she was made to wear a contraceptive device against her will, among other things.

Sharing a black and white image of a toddler's legs as they tiptoed beside those of an adult, she wrote: "I'm thinking about having another baby !!! I wonder if this one is a girl ... she's on her toes reaching for something ... that's for sure 🐣🙊💋💅🏼 !!!!⁣"

Responding to the post, Asghari, 27, wrote: "I hope she has great calves like that! That genetic wouldn't be coming from me 😂 #chickenleg."

Britney Spears shares sons—Sean Preston, 16, and Jayden James, 15—with her ex-husband, Kevin Federline.
