It seems like Britney Spears is all set to turn over a new leaf when it comes to her social media presence. The singer recently disabled her Instagram account. She has used the platform to put out her candid and unfiltered thoughts in the past.
How many followers did Britney have on Instagram?
Spears had a massive following on Instagram, she had more than 40 million followers on the platform. Over the last couple of years, Instagram has become a go-to platform for a large majority of people for almost everything.
Right from the start, Britney has been very open about her personal and professional battles on Instagram and has kept her fans updated with what’s going on in her life. For the last 13 years, she had been fighting a conservatorship battle that came to end in November 2021.
Instagram has not deactivated her account, it’s the other way around. She decided to do it. A close source stated, “Britney chose to disable her own Instagram.”
What did Britney have to say about the conservatorship?
The 40-year-old spilled the beans on her conservatorship and asked for justice from the law. Earlier this month, she took to her Instagram handle and wrote, “Nobody should ever be treated the way I was.”
She further added, “The reason I bring this up is because ending the conservatorship is a huge deal but come on … THAT’S IT ??? They all got away with it !!! I’m not done. I want justice and I won’t stop until something is done to those who harmed me … and YES I was harmed !!!!”
More details about Britney’s conservatorship
The ‘Toxic’ singer spend a total of 13 years living under a conservatorship. 13 years is a pretty long period. Due to the conservatorship, she had no power which means all her life decisions including personal, legal and economic decisions were conceded by others. This kind of legal structure is designed for people who are not capable of taking care of themselves.
In most places, a conservatorship is also known as ‘guardianship’. From that point on Britney has dropped four albums and headlined a global tour. In Britney’s case, her conservators included her father James Spears who had a major hand in controlling her personal decisions, spending, and even communications.
In April 2021, Britney appealed to the court to have an open hearing to ponder over the terms of the arrangement. The court scheduled the hearing for June 23. The meeting took place and Britney said it all in front of the court. We are so happy for Britney that the conservatorship came to an end.
