Britney Spears is finally free of conservatorship after 12 long years. Now, after these many years, the singer gets to look forward to a brighter future free of any strings pulling her back. Her freedom has come very dear to her, and now, the singer is of the mind to call out all the people who hindered her from living her life to its fullest. 

The conservatorship controlled her life for a big chunk of her life, and her family was particularly responsible for her bad living conditions. Her family went on to dictate her life fully from the moment the conservatorship was set on the young star, and the experience was “demoralizing and degrading” for the star. 

The celebrity, aged 38, shared, “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 !!!! In her Instagram video caption, she also wrote, “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 !!!!” 

The "Circus" singer's conservatorship had started back in 2008 under the notion that she was not fit to control her life and assets. The singer shared that conservatorship was “a really long time to be in a situation you don’t want to be in.”

So, opening up about how things are without having someone dictate every moment of her life and how liberating the new experience is, the star said, “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 …” she continued.

The singer is now working to "make an impact and make some changes in the corrupt system," so that no one else has to live through the horrendous reality of a conservatorship. 

Talking about how Britney feels at the moment, an insider shared, “Britney goes from being excited and thrilled to angry and a little overwhelmed by the enormity of it all. There were days when Britney struggled to feel any hope about the future. For her, it was like being held in solitary confinement, and her voice or feelings didn’t count for anything… But seeing and hearing all the support that was out there for her changed everything.”

The singer was particularly delighted the day her nightmare conservatorship ended, and she shared a video right outside the courthouse, where she said, "Good God, I love my fans so much it's crazy 🥺❤️ !!! I think I’m gonna cry the rest of the day !!!! Best day ever … praise the Lord … can I get an Amen 🙏🏼☀️🙌🏼 ???? #FreedBritney."

Later she said, “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. 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.”

The singer had first talked about the conservatorship in June and how it affected her at a hearing, where she talked about all the things that she had to suffer as she had no control over her life. The court hearing was then succeeded by an allowance that permitted the dancer to choose her own legal guide. This was the first time after her conservatorship was set that Britney got to control her legal proceedings. 

Eventually, Gladstone Jones, the attorney of Britney Spears's mother, Lynne Spears, shared that the woman was a “very concerned mother." He also went on to say that Lynne Spear was worried for Britney as she had demanded that she get control over her life, her personal and financial assets again. 

The conservatorship finally came to an end on November 12 when the court judge laid the decision to rest and terminated the family control on Britney's life by her parents on Thursday. The star was immensely grateful to her fans, who seconded her cause and made "FreeBritney'' a global slogan, helping her secure her eventual freedom.

The "Toxic" singer said on Tuesday, “The #FreeBritney movement — you guys rock. My voice was muted and threatened for so long, and I wasn’t able to speak up or say anything, and 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 awareness to all of them. Because of you I honestly think you guys saved my life, in a way. 100 percent.”
