Are Selena Gomez and Britney Spears friends? 'Toxic' hitmaker receives care package
The 'Princess of Pop' was thrilled to receive a care package from a fellow songstress amid her legal battle to be released from her father's conservatorship. Britney Spears, 39, who has been under the conservatorship of Jamie Spears since 2008, was grateful for the gift she received from 28-year-old Selena Gomez. The box reportedly consisted of a tie-dye La'Mariette bikini and three of Britney's "favorite make-up products" from Selena's Rare Beauty range.

The products were all from Selena's own range, including Positive Light Liquid Luminizer Highlight in Mesmerize, Always An Optimist 4-in-1 Prime & Set Mist, and Illuminating Primer.
"Ok guys ... great news !!! When I woke up I got a very cool box with a bikini in it and my favorite three makeup products from @SelenaGomez !!!!" Britney wrote as she shared a photo of the parcel on her Instagram. "Her shimmers are really fun and her spritz for your face before makeup is the bomb and smells very good !!!! Selena .... Thank you for surprising me with this gift … I've been looking for shimmers !!!!!!"
Selena responded saying she was "so happy" that Britney liked her gift. "This makes me so happy! I hope you enjoy it- love you so much," she commented on the post.
Selena has previously admitted how one of her favorite tour costumes -- a crystal-embellished bodysuit -- was inspired by Britney.
"I'm not going to lie, Britney Spears inspired it from Toxic," the 'Wolves' hitmaker said while discussing the outfit, which she wore to open her 2016 Revival concerts. "I wanted to find a moment where that could kind of have its place. Still have the outfit! Do I put it on and try to sing? Sometimes." She added, "It's so hard to tour, and when you're a female, because you have all of this pressure to add multiple looks throughout the show. You want it to pop but you have to make it comfortable for yourself and realistic to dance in or to perform in."
Having said that, Spears' lawyers are now moving "aggressively" to end her conservatorship, which she was placed under in 2008 and has described as "controlling." She has hired a new attorney, Mathew Rosengart, who said on Monday he would be taking "aggressive" steps to ensure his client's conservatorship was annulled as soon as possible.
Britney wants to ensure that her father is removed from the conservatorship. According to the Daily Mail, he previously controlled all aspects of his daughter's life, but currently only oversees her finances.
"My firm and I are moving aggressively and expeditiously to file a petition to remove Jamie Spears unless he resigns first," Rosengart told reporters outside the Stanley Mosk Courthouse in Los Angeles.
Britney's legal team is currently battling the case in court, where the proceedings are currently focusing on a money dispute between Britney's legal personal guardian, Jodi Montgomery, and her father. The 'Gimme More' hitmaker broke down in tears during a court appearance last week, saying she was "extremely scared" of her father.
"I'm here to get rid of my dad and charge him with conservatorship abuse. This conservatorship has allowed my dad to ruin my life," she said.
Last month, the Princess of Pop called for her father to be jailed, claiming she had been left "traumatized" and "depressed" under his conservatorship.
