Spears’ father, Jamie Spears, had the chart-topping artist placed under a conservatorship in 2008 following her public mental health struggles. However, in a June 23 court testimony, the singer spoke out about the lack of control she has over her own personal and financial life, making it explicitly clear for the first time that she wanted the conservatorship — which she claimed was abusive and exploitative — to end.
That day, Lynne took to her Instagram Story to share a cryptic quote, reading, “Where the spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.” While it’s unclear if Lynne’s message is about Spears, the word choice “freedom” raised eyebrows, as the movement to end Spears’ conservatorship has long been called “Free Britney.”

The “Oops! I Did It Again” singer, however, has spoken out against her mother in recent weeks. In , the Crossroads actress wrote, “My dad may have started the conservatorship 13 years ago … but what people don’t know is that my mom is the one who gave him the idea.”
Spears added, “She secretly ruined my life … so take your whole ‘I have NO IDEA what’s going on’ attitude and go f–k yourself!!!!”
On the day of her conservatorship dissolvement, the pop star took to Instagram to express her gratitude for her fans, sharing video from a Free Britney rally outside of the court.
“Good God I love my fans so much it’s crazy,” she captioned the post. “I think I’m gonna cry the rest of the day !!!! Best day ever … praise the Lord … can I get an Amen.”
