BRUSSELS — Pop singer Britney Spear said in a long Instagram post on Sunday that she will not perform until she remains under her father's conservatorship.

"Look I'm not gonna be performing on any stages anytime soon with my dad handling what I wear, say, do, or think," she wrote.

Since 2008, her father Jamie Spears has mostly had complete legal control over her estate, along with other aspects of her life and career.

Among other revelations, Spears told the court she was forced to take birth control against her will and prevented from having another child.

The next court hearing will be in late September. On Wednesday, Spears was authorized to choose her own attorney in a first legal victory.

"This conservatorship killed my dreams ... so all I have is hope and hope is the only thing in this world that is very hard to kill," Spears wrote on Sunday.

Fans have rallied around Spears, launching the #FreeBritney movement, a campaign that seeks to end what has been described as conservatorship abuse. — Euronews
