Britney Spears’ mother Lynne Spears posted an emotional response on Instagram Sunday night (August 28) following Britney’s 22-minute tell-all about her conservatorship (which she has since deleted on YouTube). In the voice memo, which has been reshared by unauthorized accounts, Britney claims that her mom deeply hurt her by not helping her get out of the 13-year conservatorship.
Lynne wrote over a throwback photo of her and her daughter hugging and laughing, “Britney, your whole life I have tried my best to support your dreams and wishes! And also, I have tried my best to help you out of hardships! I have never and will never turn my back on you! Your rejections to the countless times I have flown out and calls make me feel hopeless! I have tried everything. I love you so much, but this talk is for you and me only, eye to eye, in private.”
Britney said in the voice note, “I’m honestly more angry at my mom because I heard when reporters would call her at the time and ask questions of what was going on, she would go innocently hide in the house and she wouldn’t speak up. There was always like, ‘I don’t know what to say. I just don’t want to say the wrong thing. We’re praying for her.’ I feel like she could’ve gotten me a lawyer in literally two seconds … Every time I made contact with a firm, my phone was tapped and they would take my phone away from me.”
In the voice memo, Britney said she has had “tons of opportunities” to sit down with Oprah Winfrey and do interviews to tell her story for money, but rejected them because she finds it “silly.”
