The pop star shared on her Instagram that months ago she was invited to speak openly about her near 14-year conservatorship struggle.
Britney Spears revealed that she was invited to the US Congress in 2021 to talk about the conservatorship which was controlled by her father Jamie.
The letter, which Spears shared on her Instagram earlier today, is dated December 1, 2021, and was written by Democrats Charlie Crist of Florida and Eric Swalwell of California. The congressmen wished her and her attorney Matthew Rosengart congratulations on overturning the legal battle last year, inviting her to "meet with us in Congress" in order to "describe in your own words how you achieved justice".
They wrote: "There is no doubt that your story will empower countless others outside the millions that are already inspired by you and your art.
"Please know that you have absolutely no obligation to do anything more than fight for yourself, but if you are willing, we would appreciate learning more about the emotional and financial turmoil you faced within the conservatorship system."
Sharing the letter two and a half months later, Britney Spears expressed her thanks to Congress for offering a platform for her at last. She captioned the post with: "I was immediately flattered and at the time I wasn’t nearly at the healing stage I’m in now … Number 1 - I’m grateful that my story was even ACKNOWLEDGED !!! Because of the letter, I felt heard and like I mattered for the first time in my life !!!"
Although it seems Spears didn't take the two congressmen up on their offer, she does thank them for acknowledging her near 14-year struggle: "In the mean time thank you to Congress for inviting me to the White House."
Britney Spears' conservatorship battle with her father finally ceased in November of 2021, meaning she now has control over her financial estate with guidance from her supportive team and counsel.
Since then, however, her sister Jamie Lynn has released a memoir (and underwent a televised interview), which Britney has labelled as capitalising on her unfortunate circumstances, failing to help her own sibling after all of these years.
