Britney Spears has hit out with a social media post comparing her treatment during her conservatorship to Jennifer Lopez.

Taking to Instagram in the early hours of Monday 26 September, the since-deleted post included more disturbing allegations about her time under her conservatorship.

The 'Stronger' singer, 40, also went on to suggest that a performer like Lopez would not have been forced to undergo the same treatment from her management team.

Britney wrote: “I’d like to see somebody tell Jennifer Lopez to sit down eight hours a day seven days a week... no car.

"I’d like to see a management team tell Jennifer Lopez to go through what I went through... what the f*** do you think she would do ... her family would NEVER allow that.

“After 14 years of telling me ‘no’ to what I wanted... it’s ruined for me... but that wasn’t the worst part... the worst part was my family locking me up in that place for four months."

The singer also claimed at one moment during her conservatorship that her usual medication was ‘abruptly’ stopped, and she was ‘drugged’ with lithium - a type of medicine known as a mood stabiliser, according to NHS England.

She originally made the claim that she had been forced to take lithium in court last year, testifying: "I felt drunk, I couldn’t even have a conversation with my mom or dad about anything."

In her recent Instagram post, Britney also added that the agreement and its aftermath would have made her rather ‘s*** in [her] f***ing pool than join the entertainment business'.

Spears was under the conservatorship – which she dubbed as ‘abusive’ – since 2008, with her father Jamie appointed as her legal guardian at the time, before stepping down in September last year.

The legal agreement came to an end in November 2021 during a hearing at Los Angeles probate court.

It marked the end of Spears’ 13-year-long conservatorship, with LA County Superior Court Judge Brenda Penny ruling the controversial arrangement should be terminated.
