It may have taken her some time to find her voice, but Britney Spears is certainly not pulling any punches these days.

Since first speaking at her conservatorship hearing back in June, the pop star has been increasingly vocal about her situation on social media.

Her latest flurry of posts follows on from last week's court testimony - her second - and takes potshots at both those 'closest to her' who 'never showed up' as well as those who criticise the dance videos that she regularly uploads to Instagram.

In the first, she stated: "There’s nothing worse than when the people closest to you who never showed up for you post things in regard to your situation whatever it may be and speak righteously for support … there’s nothing worse than that !!!!"

Many fans have speculated that she is referring to her younger sister Jamie Lynn - who has recently spoken out in support of Britney - and/or her mother, Lynn.

She continued: "How dare the people you love the most say anything at all … did they even put a hand out to even lift me up at the TIME !!!??? How dare you make it public that NOW you CARE … did you put your hand out when I was drowning ???? Again … NO … so if you’re reading this and you know who you are … and you actually have the nerve to say anything about my situation just to save face for yourself publicly !!!"

The second, posted yesterday, denounced those who criticised her dancing videos and referenced her conservatorship, which she said "killed [her] dreams".

"For those of you who choose to criticize my dancing videos ... look I'm not gonna be performing on any stages anytime soon with my dad handling what I wear, say, do, or think ???‍♀️ ?!!!!," she wrote. "I've done that for the past 13 years ... I'd much rather share videos YES from my living room instead of onstage in Vegas."

She also referred to the recent glut of documentaries about her situation, claiming that she didn't like how they recapped 'humiliating moments' from her life.

"I don't like that my sister showed up at an awards show and performed MY SONGS to remixes !!!!!," she said. "My so-called support system hurt me deeply !!!! This conservatorship killed my dreams ... so all I have is hope and hope is the only thing in this world that is very hard to kill ... yet people still try !!!! I didn't like the way the documentaries bring up humiliating moments from the past ... I'm way past all that and have been for a long time !!!!"

The posts have generated a huge reaction online, with many fans applauding her for speaking up.

Her sister Jamie Lynn, meanwhile, posted to her own Instagram story over the weekend that she was "“Feeling solid, stable, and still on this beautiful Saturday" - although her 'Zoey 101' co-star Paul Butcher poured cold water on the prospect of a reboot of the teen show, which she starred in from 2005 - 2008. Instead, he publicly lent his support to the elder Spears sister and apparently mocked Jamie Lynn in a not-so-subtle way.
