·2 min read

An angry Britney Spears vented on Instagram earlier today, offering her fears for the future and anger at the system that kept her in a custodial arrangement for many years.

“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!!!,” she wrote. “For so many years I was always told if I succeeded at things, it could end … and it never did !!! I worked so hard but now that it’s here and getting closer and closer to ending I’m very happy but there’s a lot of things that scare me!!!”

Among the complaints were overly aggressive paparazzi. “I don’t like that they try to scare me and jump out like they do … it’s like they want me to do something crazy 🤷🏼‍♀️ !!! So like I said I’m fearful of doing something wrong,” she said.

She added: “I haven’t done anything to be treated the way I have for the past 13 years !!! I’m disgusted with the system and wish I lived in another country !!! 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 !!! Lord have mercy on my family’s souls if I ever do an interview !!! In the meantime … I’m staying clear of the business 💼 which is all I’ve ever known my whole life … which is why this is so very confusing for me !!! Anyway … God bless you all 🌹!!!

Spears now faces a Nov. 12 hearing that will likely mark the end of her conservatorship. Her father, Jamie Spears, has been already removed from his role as overseer of her life and career. A CPA has been appointed as a temporary co-conservator until at least December 31.
