  • In an emotional new Instagram post, Britney Spears opened up about how it feels to see some of the "people closest to [her]" publicly voice their support for her conservatorship battle after years of watching her suffering in silence.
  • In a lengthy caption calling out hypocrisy among some of those she described as the "people you love the most," Spears passionately shared her feelings on the subject. "How dare you make it public that NOW you CARE … did you put your hand out when I was drowning ???? Again … NO."
  • Spears opted not to call out anyone by name in the post, but said those she's referring to know who they are. "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," she wrote.

Britney Spears is speaking out about how some of the people closest to her are handling her conservatorship battle. Specifically, the 39-year-old star is calling out the way some people in her life failed to show up for her when she was suffering in silence, only to "speak righteously for support" publicly now that her case is in the spotlight.

Still, the singer made it clear that the people the post refers to know who they are and implored them to stop speaking out publicly about her situation.

The singer shared the message to her Instagram grid in the caption of an image that read, "Never forget who ignored you when you needed them and who helped you before you even had to ask."
