BRITNEY Spears apologized to fans for “pretending she’s been ok.”
The 39-year-old broke her silence with an Instagram post following her conservatorship hearing with dad Jamie.
Britney took to Instagram on Thursday to address her fans following her court appearance on Wednesday.
Alongside a photo that shared a quote from Albert Einstein, the singer wrote: “I just want to tell you guys a little secret .
“I believe as people we all want the fairy tale life and by the way I’ve posted … my life seems to look and be pretty amazing … I think that’s what we all strive for !!!”
She continued: That was one of my mother’s best traits … no matter how sh**ty a day was when I was younger … for the sake of me and my siblings she always pretended like everything was ok.
“I’m bringing this to peoples attention because I don’t want people to think my life is perfect because IT’S DEFINITELY NOT AT ALL … and if you have read anything about me in the news this week … you obviously really know now it’s not !!!!”
Britney then apologized to her supporters, writing: “I apologize for pretending like I’ve been ok the past two years … I did it because of my pride and I was embarrassed to share what happened to me … but honestly who doesn’t want to capture there Instagram in a fun light !!!!
“Believe it or not pretending that I’m ok has actually helped … so I decided to post this quote today because by golly if you’re going through hell.
“I feel like Instagram has helped me have a cool outlet to share my presence … existence … and to simply feel like I matter despite what I was going through and hey it worked.
The Toxic singer concluded: “So I’ve decided to start reading more fairy tales !!!!!”
Many fans took to the comments section of the post to speculate that Britney doesn’t run her own Instagram account, as one person wrote: “We know it isn’t britney who typed this.”
