Britney Spears has said that her refusal to record new music “is a way of saying ‘f**k you'” to the family members she holds responsible for keeping her in a conservatorship for almost 14 years.

Fans of the singer have become accustomed to her frequent Instagram posts with lengthy captions which detail her experiences under the conservatorship since it officially ended in November.

In a series of a Notes app screenshots, the singer wrote last night: “I wanted to be nice but what they did to my heart was unforgivable. I asked for 13 years to perform new songs and remixes of my old songs… and every time I was told ‘no’”.

“It didn’t make sense how network television shows are showcasing my music with remixes of all of my music… yet the person who owns the music is told no.

“It was a setup to make me fail,” Britney Spears continued. “So much wasted time to only embarrass me and humiliate me and I guess it seems odd to most now why I don’t even do my music any more. People have no idea the awful things that were done to me personally… and what I’ve been through. I am scared of people and the business. They really hurt me.

“Not doing my music any more is a way of saying ‘f**k you’ in a sense when it actually benefits my family by ignoring my real work.”

In the same post, Britney Spears also spoke to her followers about the experience of losing her faith at one point in 2017.

“I had an experience three years ago where I stopped believing in God,” she explained. “From every angle I was being hurt for no reason and my family was hurting me. I went into a state of shock and the way I coped was being in fake denial. It was too much to really face. It then came full circle and my heart took over and I was [a] lion.”

“My goal for this year is to push myself a bit more and do things that scare me but not too much. I do know what makes me happy and brings me joy and I try to meditate on those places and thoughts that enable me to experience it.”

In spite of her determination to stick it to her father and all those responsible for the conservatorship, the singer has recently teased new music by posting a video of her singing a cappella in her mirror, noting in the caption that a “new song is in the works”.

The controversy surrounding the conservatorship continues to play out in public after last week it emerged that her father’s lawyer is demanding the singer pay his legal fees.

Documents filed by Jamie Spears’ representative say these are “concerning Jamie’s ongoing fiduciary duties relating to winding up”.

In the filing, documents state that “prompt payment on account of Jamie’s attorneys’ fees” is required to “quickly and efficiently” bring an end to the case.

Britney Spears’ lawyer also cited the father’s “years of dedication” to his daughter’s well-being as justification for why she should cover his fees.
