Britney Spears has shared a letter she received from two members of US Congress congratulating her on her “historic victories” in regards to her conservatorship battle.
Yesterday (February 16), Spears shared the letter on Instagram, which invited her to meet with congressmen and share her story further. In the letter, it was made it clear that Spears was in no way obligated to attend, but felt that by sharing her experiences she might empower others. Last year, the singer won the legal fight to have her controversial conservatorship terminated after thirteen years.
“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 !!! 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 💪 !!! 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 …
Fiancé Sam Asghari, 27, commented on the singer’s post, “Your courage will inspire others, your strength will motivate many, your voice has and will change lives. You’re powerful. Beautiful. And strong. This is why I call you lioness ♥️”
