Britney Spears is celebrating Christmas early this year as she starts to feel the freedom of her conservatorship ending. She is on the edge of regaining full control of her business and personal affairs for the first time since 2008. The program was put in place after her highly publicised mental health issues came to a head in a series of bizarre events, and a court decided someone else should take charge for the singer’s benefit.
The songstress has said she is ‘disgusted with the system’ that put the conservatorship in place. It is a complex legal arrangement from the US, usually reserved for very old or sick people. The courts placed her father, Jamie Spears, in control of many aspects of her life and finances. The relationship between the two, along with the rest of the Spears family, is very fraught. The singer has accused her relatives of not doing enough to help her be independent and warns “Lord have mercy on my family’s souls if I ever decide to do an interview.”
Since her father was removed from the court order in September, Spears has been apprehensive about truly enjoying her freedom. Writing on Instagram, she said: “I’ll just be honest and say I’ve waited so long to be free from the situation I’m in … and now that it’s here I’m scared to do anything because I’m afraid I’ll make a mistake !!!”
Sharing a picture of a Christmas tree with her wordy caption, she continued: “I’m celebrating Christmas way early this year … because why not ???!!! I believe any reason to find more joy in life is a good idea … and it’s no secret that I’ve been through it in the past … so I might have to do things a little differently from now on !!!”
Britney Spears remains one of the biggest names in music despite not performing since 2018. The next stage of her court battle is due to take place in November.
