Britney Spears Gushes Over Invite to White House
| LAST UPDATE 02/18/2022
Since the end of the 13-year-long conservatorship, Britney Spears hasn't shied away from updating her social media followers on her ongoing journey. In a recent Instagram post, she revealed one significant fan that has apparently been following her updates: Congress!
The 40-year-old singer and her attorney, Mathew Rosengart, were invited to the White House to discuss guardianships and conservatorships, following Spears' recent legal victory against her father. The invitation letter, dated Dec. 1, 2021, was signed by Congressmen Charlie Crist and Eric Swalwell, who congratulated Spears on her new freedom. In the letter, the Congressmen wrote that they had been closely following her legal battle, and were "elated" that Britney and her lawyer managed to successfully terminate the conservatorship. "Your journey towards justice will inspire and empower many others who are improperly silenced by the conservatorship process," they added.
In the letter, the Congressmen noted the "concerning issues" that Spears had faced under the abusive conservatorship. A couple of these included in the letter were Spears being prohibited from managing her own personal and financial affairs, as well as being forced to work against her will. In light of her struggles, the two representatives formally invited Spears to discuss her battle towards victory. "There is no doubt that your story will empower countless others outside the millions that are already inspired by you and your art," they wrote, adding that "[they] would appreciate learning more about the emotional and financial turmoil [Britney] faced with the conservatorship system.”
Following the invitation, the Toxic singer posted the letter on Instagram, sharing that she had received the letter in December. "I was immediately flattered and at the time I wasn’t nearly at the healing stage I’m in now," the caption read. "I'm grateful that my story was even ACKNOWLEDGED," the singer added, explaining that because of the invitation from Congress, "[she] felt heard and like [she] mattered for the first time in [her] life." The caption ended with, "In the mean time thank you to Congress for inviting me to the White House." Britney Spears' life post-conservatorship has been anything but quiet. From finally revealing the struggles she endured in the past 13 years, to threatening her sister, Jamie Lynn, this star has had a lot going in the past months. But we're certain she'll continue updating her fans as her journey continues.
