Britney Spears has just been told she’s going to make the internet “explode.” When the 39-year-old updated her Instagram last night – saying #FreeBritney for the first time – boyfriend Sam Asghari gained over 83,000 likes for replying: “Internet is about to explode #freebritney.”
Spears, who made June headlines for slamming her conservatorship in a court appeal and this week said she wants father Jamie Spears charged with “conservatorship abuse,” made history on Wednesday night as she shared a video for her 31.4 million Instagram followers. Fans got the Grammy winner horseback riding and delivering cartwheels, but the caption is what’s gone viral.
Britney Spears finally says #FreeBritney
See the video below. Spears, this week permitted to hire her own lawyer as she gains a small advantage against her 69-year-old father, posted with a mash-up. She opened with footage of herself horseback riding, swiftly moving on to a rather impressive cartwheel display. The “Circus” hit-maker was seen flipping across the grass while in tan shorts, with the joyful spirit continuing in a caption.
Addressing her army of followers, the blonde said she was “coming along, folks,” adding that she was “new with real representation today.” Gushing towards a fanbase that recently shaded her over a nude bath photo, the singer continued:
"“I feel GRATITUDE and BLESSED !!!! Thank you to my fans who are supporting me … You have no idea what it means to me be supported by such awesome fans !!!! God bless you all !!!!! Pssss this is me celebrating by horseback riding and doing cartwheels today 🤸♂️🤷♀️🐎 !!!! #FreeBritney.”"
It’s the closure that’s sent shockwaves across Instagram. While Spears had made her views perfectly clear last month as she told Judge Brenda Penny that her 2008-commenced conservatorship had left her “traumatized,” fans had yet to see the singer employ the hashtag that now backs her.
“We got you,” a popular reply read. Responses also came in from famous faces. Singer Ariana Grande wrote: “YOU ARE SO VERY LOVED AND SUPPORTED.” Others, meanwhile, took the opportunity to quote the singer’s own lyrics – “You are stronger than yesterday,” one said.
The latest court address saw Britney say she’d “press charges” against her father. “I’m angry and I will go there,” she stated, adding that the conservatorship is “allowing my dad to ruin my life. I have to get rid of my dad and charge him with conservatorship abuse.”
Britney’s conservatorship began in 2008 with a public mental health spiral. Speaking last month, Britney said she’s been forced to take Lithium against her will amid a list of other constraints, not limited to her being forced to take contraceptives.
