Britney Spears nude pic defies censors as mom weighs in on conservatorship battle
Britney Spears shared a photo of her naked back as mother Lynne Spears requested Judge Brenda Penny to 'listen to the wishes of her daughter'
Britney Spears shared a steamy naked photo of herself resting on the lip of her bathtub on Wednesday, July 7, news outlets revealed. The post comes on the same day that the pop star's mother, Lynne Spears, wrote to the judge overseeing her conservatorship case, requesting that they 'listen' to her daughter's wishes.
Lynne Spears requested her daughter be allowed to choose her own counsel and stop the legal framework that she claims is wrecking her life, adding that the singer is capable of looking after herself and has done so for years.
Spears was recently in the news after she appeared in court and gave testimony regarding her controversial conservatorship for the first time on Wednesday, June 23. The 'Toxic' singer has long wanted to remove her father as her conservator since 2016. She had requested to address the court directly in April.
The nude photograph of the 39-year-old 'Princess of Pop' was taken from behind, and exposed her bareback and a thin silver necklace from an angle high enough to avoid breaking Instagram's Community Guidelines. Her image, which she captioned with only three emojis of ballerina pointe shoes, comes as she fights to free herself from her father's "abusive" conservatorship.
Around three hours later, she took to Instagram again to post a picture of an anime girl with flowers in her blonde hair, holding hearts and flowers in her hands, with the caption: "Our Father who ART 🖼 in Heaven HALLOWED BE THY NAME !!!! Pssss you better F*****G BELIEVE IT !!!! "
Britney's latest posts come after her mother wrote to Judge Brenda Penny, telling her to "listen to the wishes of her daughter", and requesting that the singer be allowed to appoint her own attorney. Lynne claimed that her daughter is in a significantly different place now than when her conservatorship began in 2008, according to a court file acquired by CNN on Wednesday, July 7. "On June 23, 2021 in very courageous showing, Conservatee [Britney] appeared by phone and spoke for almost twenty—five minutes, baring her heart to the Court in an impassioned plea to be heard on several requests," Lynne's attorney wrote.
Britney has "quite literally earned hundreds of millions of dollars" as a star, according to Lynne's lawyer and can support herself. "It is beyond dispute that this is a unique conservatorship. In the original petition for an appointment, her given address was the UCLA Medical Center. That was over 13 years ago. Now and for the past many years, she is able to care for her person and in fact has, inside the parameters of this conservatorship, earned literally hundreds of millions of dollars as an international celebrity. She should no longer be held to the same standard," the statement said.
