Britney Spears has shared a throwback video of herself dancing to Michael Jackson song ‘Scream’, after she reportedly told a judge her dad forced her to enter a mental unit and take medication against her will.
In the clip, the singer is in a gym and dancing to the angry anthem. The 1995 song featuring Janet Jackson opens with: "Tired of injustice, tired of schemes, Your lies are disgusting, What does it mean." The chorus is a repetition of: "Stop pressurin' me... Makes me wanna scream."
Spears captioned the post: "Me and Michael." Her boyfriend, Sam Asghari added: "Moves better than MJ."
The appearance of the 2018 clip on Spears’s timeline has got fans speculating that the singer is addressing her current legal battle over the conservatorship of her affairs.
A 2008 ruling gave Spears’s father Jamie Spears full control over her affairs.
However, the ruling does not give him power to put his daughter in a mental health facility, or to medicate her without consent.
Spears’s mother, Lynne, is now attempting to amend the conservatorship, to remove some of his power.
An investigation into who manages Britney Spears’s affairs, including her finances, medical dealings and personal life, is now underway.
In documents obtained by The Blast, a California judge has also ordered a probate court investigator to investigate the conservatorship, and Spears’s father.
