Returning to the platform less than an hour later, Britney decided to give her fans a look at her ‘spectacular backyard,’ while cluing them in on her plans to renovate it and the rest of her home. 

‘My future goal is to get a koi pond and get a little fishy in there! Really excited about it,’ she explained via video, adding: ‘I love my yard and my house is beautiful but it has some work to do.’

Spears included several photos of her backyard, noting in her caption that she will ‘show you guys the finished process of my yard after’ after ‘getting in the yard’ and making things to her liking.

The attached photos showed several stunning corners of the hitmaker’s sprawling backyard, which featured walls covered in ivy and various elegantly sculpted shrubs.

The final two images in her Instagram slideshow appeared to be inspiration photos, being that one of the shots showed a room filled to the brim with brightly colored flowers. 

The second had a field of flowers superimposed over a vintage care resting in what appeared to be Britney’s side yard.

Britney’s jovial Instagram posts came just hours after TMZ reported that the star is trying to get the next hearing on her conservatorship case moved up a month to expedite the process of removing her father as conservator of her estate.

Lawyers for the Womanizer singer filed new legal documents asking to bump up the timeline and submitted damning statements from co-conservator Jodi Montgomery about the damage Jamie is causing to Britney personally and to her fortune. 

This is the latest in Spears’ months long attempt to loosen the tight hold her father has on her personal and professional life following her explosive testimony earlier this summer when she revealed to a judge that she found the conservatorship ‘abusive.’

Jodi Montgomery is quoted in legal documents, according to TMZ, as stating: ‘Mr. Spears’s removal as Conservator is critical to [Britney’s] emotional health and well-being and in the best interests of the conservatee.’ 

 ‘I have had numerous, ongoing conversations with the medical team and we all agree that it would be best for Ms. Spears’ well-being and mental health that her father stop acting as Conservator,’ Montgomery also said. 

Montgomery, an experienced conservator with a degree in social welfare, was brought on to co-manage Britney’s affairs in September 2019, when her father Jamie Spears became ill. 

Britney’s lawyer, Mathew Rosengart added in the documents that, not only is Jamie harmful for the pop star’s mental health, he is also damaging the health of her estate.

‘There has been an evident dissipation of assets of Ms. Spears Estate, and that dissipation is ongoing,’ he wrote, adding that Britney’s estate is footing the $1.3M lawyers fees to battle over the conservatorship. 

Last month Matt Rosengart filed a motion to have Jamie removed and have Certified Public Accountant (CPA) Jason Rubin appointed in his place. 

If the request is granted, Rubin would be given financial authority to manage Britney’s estate and assets as well as the powers of attorney to make health care decisions.

In June, the Toxic singer gave an emotional, 23-minute testimony during a hearing in a Los Angeles court where she pleaded with Judge Brenda Penny for freedom by ending the 13-year conservatorship she’s been under. 

The last time Spears spoke directly to the judge was in May 2019, but the court was closed to the public and her testimony was sealed, and details of her mental health have never been disclosed.

In the shocking testimony, Britney admitted: ‘I’ve lied and told the whole world I’m OK and I’m happy. It’s a lie. I’ve been in denial. I’ve been in shock. I am traumatized. Fake it ’til you make it, but now I’m telling you the truth, OK? I’m not happy. I can’t sleep. I’m depressed. I cry every day.’

‘I want to be able to get married to my boyfriend and have a baby but the conservatorship told me I can’t do that. I have an IUD [intrauterine device[ inside me to prevent me from having a baby,’ Britney continued. 

Adding: ‘I want to go to a doctor and take it out so I can have a baby but they (the conservatorship) told me no.’

Spears has been under the conservatorship since her public breakdown in 2008. 

Meanwhile, the singer has been vacationing in Hawaii with her boyfriend Sam Asghari and posting a slew of random dancing and topless photos and videos across her social media.
