ups and downs. Britney Spears and his mother, lynn spearsHas had a rocky relationship over the years.
Almost 10 years after she hit it off with her debut single, “Baby One More Time,” Britney was placed under a guardianship – conducted by her father, jamie spears – in February 2008 after a series of public personal conflicts. For many years, Jamie had control over the property and person of his eldest daughter. jodi montgomery Lynn – who finalized her divorce from Jamie in 2002 – became involved in a legal battle in 2020 after she requested to be involved in financial decisions on the “Circus” singer’s behalf. Britney, for her part, has been outspoken about how her parents managed her affairs.
“I just want my life back. It’s been 13 years, and that’s enough. It’s been a long time since I got my money,” the “Strong” artist said during an emotional court testimony in June 2021. And it is my wish and my dream that this all ends without trial. … I would honestly like to sue my family to be completely honest with you. I also want to be able to share my story with the world am, and it is a dark secret to benefit them all instead of what they did to me.
He said: “I am not happy. I can not sleep. I’m so angry. this is insane. And I’m sad.
The guardianship was eventually terminated in November 2021, but estrangement between Britney and her family remained.
“A woman came up with the idea [of the conservatorship] For my dad, and my mom really helped him nurture and do all this,” the former Mouseketeer alleged in a since-deleted August 2022 video shared via YouTube. “It was all set up basically. No drugs in my system. No drinking. Nothing. It was pure abuse.
Britney continued at the time: “How the fk did they get away with this? How is God? Is there a God? I was so vulnerable… I was scared, broken. I’m sharing this because I I want people to know that I’m only human… How can I fix this if I don’t talk about it?”
The Grammy winner further alleged that she was angrier at her mother than at her father because she could have helped – but didn’t.
“The whole thing that made it really confusing for me is these people [the #FreeBritney movement] fighting for me on the street, but my sister [Jamie Lynn Spears] And my mother is not doing anything, ”Britney claimed in her blistering recording. “To me, it was like they secretly honestly liked me bad—like I was messed up, and they liked it that way. Otherwise why weren’t they outside my door saying, ‘Baby, get in the car. Come on.’ I think that’s the main thing that hurt me. I just couldn’t understand how my family got along for so long. His only response was, ‘We didn’t know.'”
Lynn, for her part, responded to her daughter’s claims via Instagram in August. She wrote: “Britney, all your life I have tried my best to support your dreams and desires! And at the same time, I have tried my best to get you out of difficulties!
The “If U Seek Amy” star has since distanced herself from her family — which includes Lynne, Jamie and The Zoey 101 alum – neither of whom were invited to her June 2022 wedding Sam Asghari,
