Britney Spears shares a selfie before breaking into dance amid ongoing conservatorship battle


Britney Spears appeared to unwind if only for a moment online.

The 39-year-old legendary performer shared a fresh-faced selfie before breaking into a spirited dance routine to Billie Eilish’s song Bad Guy for her millions of followers on Instagram Monday afternoon.

Spears was certainly in her element as she rocked a vibrant red sports bra and green shorts for the impromptu routine just days before her father Jamie and conservatorship lawyers are expected to give proof to a judge that Britney still needs the court order.

Britney stood in her garden wearing a button-down blouse tied up into a knot above her waist in the sweet photo which was simply captioned with a few kiss emojis.

She showed off her favorite moves as she danced in the foyer of her LA-area mansion in another post shared shortly after, with the caption: ‘RED!!!!’ 

The Stronger singer reportedly signed paperwork to bring high-profile attorney Mathew Rosengart onto her legal team as she seeks to end the conservatorship that’s been in place since 2008.

‘Pursuant to my statement in open court on June 23, 2021, my rights, and my desire to end the above-referenced conservatorship as to my father Jamie P. Spears, it is my desire to choose and retain my own counsel, at Greenberg, Traurig, LLP as set forth above,’ the document allegedly reads.

Rosengart, who is a partner in his firm, has had a number of high-profile Hollywood clients, including Steven Spielberg, Ben Affleck and his brother Casey, Sean Penn and director Michael Mann, among others.

Spears is in need of a new lawyer after her previous attorney, Samuel Ingham, resigned from his position last week. 

Britney made it clear in court that she would like her conservatorship to end without a mental health evaluation typically required as she believes doctors ‘have failed her’ in the conservatorship battle.

‘She doesn’t have much trust for the doctors that she has worked with so far,’ sources told People. ‘She feels like they have failed her.’ 

On Monday, a source close to Britney’s family told People reported that Britney was ‘happy’ with her personal conservator Jodi Montgomery.

‘Britney is doing well. She is excited to see how everything is moving forward. She is happy that Jodi is pushing back against Jamie’s claims,’ they claimed. ‘She feels like Jodi is very supportive.’

The conservator has expressed her desire to help Britney regain control of her life. 

‘Jodi has made it clear that she will do everything in her power to help Britney get out of the conservatorship,’ the source continued. ‘She agrees that Britney’s situation is unfair and just not right.’

The insider added that ‘Britney still has no contact with her dad.’

Britney gave an emotional, 23-minute testimony during a hearing in a Los Angeles court on June 23 where she pleaded with Judge Brenda Penny for freedom. 

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. 

Britney has been under a court order for 13 years where her father, Jamie, has held the power over all of her personal and financial decisions following her multiple involuntary holds in psychiatric hospitals.  

‘I’m sorry for my ignorance, but I honestly didn’t know that. But honestly, but I don’t think I owe anyone to be evaluated. I’ve done more than enough. I don’t feel like I should even be in room with anyone to offend me by trying to question my capacity of intelligence, whether I need to be in this stupid conservatorship or not. I’ve done more than enough.’

Spears pleaded with the judge to re-evaluate the conservatorship she’s been under for 13 years, with dad Jamie at the helm of her $60million fortune. 

‘This conservatorship is doing me way more harm than good. I deserve to have a life, I’ve worked my whole life. I deserve to have a two to three-year break,’ she said. 

Since her shocking testimony, Britney’s court-appointed attorney, Ingham, resigned after failing to file paperwork to end conservatorship. 

And just the day before, Britney’s longtime manager, Larry Rudolph, resigned saying he was no longer needed. 

The next court hearing is July 14, when lawyers for Jamie and the conservatorship ‘team’ will give evidence to prove Britney does want the court order in place.

A Spears family source added: 'Britney is following everything closely,' before noting that her boyfriend, model Sam Asghari, 'continues to be her rock. She is hopeful that there will be huge changes' (seen in 2019)

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.’ 

Spears said she did not feel she ‘was heard on any level’ the last time she was able to speak to the court in 2019.

‘I want changes and I want changes going forward,’ she said. ‘I deserve changes. I was told I have to sit down and be evaluated, again, if I want to end the conservatorship. Ma’am, I didn’t know I could petition the conservatorship to end it.’

And while there are some changes in the works for Spears’ management, her personal conservator, Jodi Montgomery, has no plans to leave Britney’s side.

‘She remains committed to steadfastly supporting Ms. Spears in every way she can within the scope of her duties as a conservator of the person,’ Montgomery’s lawyer Lauriann Wright told PEOPLE. ‘Ms. Spears as recently as yesterday has asked Ms. Montgomery to continue to serve. Ms. Montgomery will continue to serve as a conservator for as long as Ms. Spears and the Court desire her to do so.’
