Britney Spears invited to talk about conservatorship but declined due to fear
The pop singer shared a photo of a letter from Congress, addressed to "Ms. Britney Jean Spears."
The letter congratulated her on being freed from the control of her conservators, one of which was her father Jamie Spears.
Britney captioned the post: "I received this letter months ago … An invitation to share my story … 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 !!!"
She went on: "In a world where your own family goes against you, it’s actually hard to find people that get it and show empathy
"!!!! Again, I’m not here to be a victim although I’m the first to admit I’m pretty messed up by it all … I want to help others in vulnerable situations, take life by the balls and be brave"
Britney's message concluded: "I wish I would have been … I was so scared and nothing is worse than your own family doing what they did to me … I’m lucky to have a small circle of adorable friends who I can count on … In the mean time thank you to Congress for inviting me to the White House …"
