Britney Spears shared a dance video and a message about "freedom" following reports her dad has agreed to step down from her conservatorship.

The pop princess has been in the headlines in recent weeks over her bid to have her father Jamie Spears removed from his role in overseeing her conservatorship, and recently described her situation as "abusive" in court testimony.

As the news started to circulate, Britney, 39, posted a video on Instagram showing her twirling around in shorts and a crop top.

She also shared a picture of a girl with flowers in her hair, which a fan had captioned: “We’re one step closer to your freedom!!!!! #FREEBRITNEY."
