Britney Spears has revealed she was invited by members of Congress to meet and discuss her conservatorship, which finally ended after thirteen years in 2021. 

Yesterday, the 40-year-old singer shared a screenshot of a letter sent to her by Congress members, Charlie Crist and Eric Swalwell, on her Instagram.

Dated December 1, 2021, the letter begins with Crist and Swalwell congratulating Spears’ and her lawyer Matthew Rosengart, on their “historic victories” following her conservatorship’s termination in November.

The two congressmen then go on to say they were “elated” when Spears’ father Jamie, was suspended as her conservator and again when the conservatorship ended.

They also acknowledge the issues present in many conservatorships which Spears’ case helped spotlight.

“Especially troubling was news that, for years, you were unable to hire your own counsel to represent your personal and financial interests,” it reads. “Other issues surrounding the initial petition, the eventual permanence of the conservatorship, and being forced to engage in employment against your will, are all equaling [sic] concerning.”

Crist and Swalwell then personally invite Spears to meet with them in Congress to describe in her own words “how she achieved justice,” adding they “would appreciate learning more about the emotional and financial turmoil” Spears faced within the conservatorship system.

Captioning the letter, Spears said she was flattered to receive such an invite from the two congressman and grateful that her story was even “acknowledged.”
