She suffered a setback when no action was taken in her legal case to have her father Jamie removed as her conservator at a court hearing in Los Angeles on Wednesday.
And on Thursday, Britney Spears was in a philosophical mood as she posted to her Instagram.
Alongside a close-up photo of her hand holding a tiny daisy, the pop princess spoke about finding comfort in ‘old traditions’ and ‘spending more time meditating and praying’.
Meaning of life: Britney Spears was in a philosophical mood as she posted to Instagram on Thursday, a day after a court in LA left her father’s conservatorship of her unchanged
She began her post with: ‘It’s the little things … and I have no idea what I was thinking when I got a freaking black ink triangle on my right hand !!!!’
Britney, 38, went on: ‘During this time of quarantine I really feel like making homemade bread … hanging my clothes outside to dry …. not being on my phone so much … spending more time meditating and praying …. and really finding my inner grace !!!’
‘Going back to the old traditions and understanding life has way more meaning …. also living for the beautiful surprises life is guaranteed to give !!!! GOD BLESS YOU ALL !!!!’
She made no mention of Wednesday’s court hearing.
Odd: A couple of hours later, she shared more photos to Instagram, which appear to be old pics she’s previously shared, prompting fans to express renewed concern for her welfare
A couple of hours later, she shared another two photos to Instagram, which appear to be old pics she’s previously shared in which she’s wearing a blue and white patterned peasant’s blouse and light makeup.
This time, her fans and #FreeBritney supporters commented about how they’d seen the pictures before and why wasn’t she posting new ones, and expressing concern for her welfare.
It feeds into the conspiracy theory that the hitmaker is being held ‘hostage’ by her caretakers and that her posts are being faked to try and persuade people that she is okay.
This has led to online petitions, social media posts and protests calling for her to be ‘freed’.
Her dad Jamie described the campaign as ‘a joke’ in an interview with PageSix.com earlier this month and said the conspiracy theorists ‘don’t have a clue’.
seeking freedom: Britney’s dad Jamie was made her conservator in 2008 after her high profile mental health crisis. She filed documents ahead of Wednesday’s hearing stating she is ‘strongly opposed’ to her dad continuing as sole conservator of her estate and finances
Concerned: Jason Alexander, Britney’s short-lived first husband, showed up at a #FreeBritney rally outside the courthouse in LA and claimed the star is under constant supervision
Monitored: ‘It’s really sad because it’s affecting her relationship with her kids and people like me and her friends that she’d like to hang out with but she can’t,’ Jason said of her father Jamie’s control. ‘It’s all supervised. It’s not like she can just go do what she wants’
On Wednesday, Britney’s childhood friend Jason Alexander, whom she wed in Las Vegas in January 2004 only for the marriage to be annulled 55 hours later, claimed to have insight into her life.
Jason joined fans for a #FreeBritney rally outside the downtown LA courthouse where her hearing about her conservatorship was being held.
He said he had been in contact with Britney via text message Tuesday night and said she wants the conservatorship to end.
‘She does get to do things, you know go to a vacation for a week, but it’s all supervised. It’s not like she can just go do what she wants,’ Jason said.
‘She’s ready for this to be over with, it’s holding her back,’ he added. ‘It’s really sad because it’s affecting her relationship with her kids and people like me and her friends that she’d like to hang out with but she can’t.’
Britney, pictured in 2018, was made the subject of a conservatorship in 2008 following her high profile mental health crisis. The legal move gave her father control over her estate and finances as well as the authority to make decisions on her behalf regarding her welfare
Britney was made the subject of a conservatorship in 2008 following her high profile breakdown and mental health crisis.
The legal move gave her father control over her estate and finances as well as giving him the authority to make decisions on her behalf regarding her welfare.
In her legal battle, Britney is asking a judge to allow her temporary care manager Jodi Montgomery, who took over last year when her dad became ill, to continue permanently in that role.
Court documents filed by her attorney stated that she ‘strongly opposes’ her dad Jamie continuing as sole conservator.
However, Wednesday’s hearing adjourned without any changes being made, according to TMZ.
The outlet reported that the hearing was simply a status conference and nothing can proceed through the legal system until certain documents are filed with the court.
According to TMZ, there’s a conservatorship in place because it’s been deemed that Britney is incapable of making life decisions for herself due to mental illness. And that will remain the case until and if a declaration to the contrary is accepted by the court.
Status quo: The court hearing adjourned without any changes being made. It’s reported that nothing can proceed through the legal system until certain documents are filed with the court because it’s been deemed Britney is incapable of making decisions due to mental illness
