A day after making a courtroom appeal to end her conservatorship, pop star Britney Spears said she was sorry for “pretending like I’ve been OK the past two years”. The 39-year-old Spears told a judge at a dramatic hearing that she wants an end to the conservatorship. She called the conservatorship “abusive” and said that it did “more harm” to her than good. In a post on Instagram on Thursday, Spears explained why she had not spoken out sooner, saying that she was “embarrassed to share what happened to me”. She also shared a picture with a quote on fairy tales by theoretical physicist Albert Einstein.
In the caption, Spears wrote, “I just want to tell you guys a little secret… I believe as people we all want the fairy tale life and by the way I’ve posted… my life seems to look and be pretty amazing… I think that’s what we all strive for.”
“That was one of my mother’s best traits … no matter how sh**ty a day was when I was younger … for the sake of me and my siblings she always pretended like everything was ok,” she added.
Spears then said that her life is “definitely” not perfect” and she believe that people also know about it now.
“I apologise for pretending like I’ve been ok the past two years… I did it because of my pride and I was embarrassed to share what happened to me… But honestly who doesn’t want to capture there Instagram in a fun light,” she added.
Spear said “pretending that I”m ok” has helped her in life.
