Britney Spears slams conservatorship, says she won’t work in the entertainment industry again

“I’d like to see a management team tell Jennifer Lopez to go through what I went through,” said the star.

Britney Spears has vowed that she will never work in the entertainment industry again following her conservatorship ordeal. 

The 40-year-old singer took to Instagram in a now deleted post to discuss some of the lowest points in her conservatorship battle. In the rant, Spears claimed that her family “locked her up” for four months and even had her door taken away for “privacy,” suggesting a star such as Jennifer Lopez would never be treated in a similar way.

“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 fuck do you think she would do … her family would NEVER allow that,” she wrote.

“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,” she added, alluding to her involuntary stay in a clinical facility.

Spears even claimed that at one point she had “abruptly” been taken off her usual medication and “drugged with lithium. The singer said that the conservatorship and its fallout had left her feeling that she would rather “shit in [her] fucking pool than join the entertainment business.”

Spears previously recounted being given lithium against her will while testifying in court during her conservatorship battle. “It’s a strong drug. You can go mentally impaired if you stay on it longer than five months. I felt drunk, I couldn’t even have a conversation with my mom or dad about anything,” she said in a Los Angeles courtroom.
