Britney Spears says she talked to her mother after she was forced to go to a mental health center in 2019.
After allegedly being compelled into a mental health facility in 2019, the pop diva tweeted — and then swiftly deleted — screenshots of text exchanges she made to her mother, friend, and lawyer.
Spears, 40, posted on Instagram early on Monday, “It’s a bit different with proof.”
In the first screenshot, the “Toxic” singer wrote to her mother, Lynne Spears, “He was saying he wants to UP the seraquil [sic], and I’m like whoaaaaa go f-k yourslwf [sic].” Seraquil is a bipolar medication that I initially believed was a sleep aid. more durable than lithium.
It’s not clear if Britney was talking about a doctor or her father, Jamie Spears, who was her guardian and took care of her medical care.
According to WebMD, the antipsychotic drug seroquel, also known as quetiapine, is used to treat a variety of mood disorders, including schizophrenia and bipolar disorder.
In a text to Lynne, Britney said, “I literally feel all the sick medicine in my stomach.” I believe he is attempting to kill me. I do, I swear to God.
Lynne, who is 67 years old, allegedly told the Grammy winner that she had “no response” at the moment. However, when the winner left the facility, her mother called her, according to the winner’s Instagram post.

According to Britney, she said, “You should have let me visit you and embrace you.”
In the second screenshot, the actress from “Crossroads” asked her childhood friend Jansen Fitzgerald for help in finding new direction.
An attorney was chosen by a judge in Los Angeles to represent Britney when her conservatorship started in 2008. It was 2021 before she was granted the right to select her own legal counsel.
In 2019, Britney texted Fitzgerald, “I need John Bell’s number please.” When you can
Then, after discovering that Britney’s staff had reportedly changed her medication without her consent, she asked her pal about lithium, a mood-stabilizing substance that Britney said in 2021 made her feel “drunk.”
Britney contacted Fitzgerald, saying, “I have a feeling you would say I will be OK, but it still doesn’t make sense,” adding in the Instagram comment that she “never heard back from her” either.
Fitzgerald insisted Monday afternoon on her Instagram Stories that she “did react.” She made the assumption that “certain… communications were erased” from Britney’s phone, which Jamie, 70, is said to have kept an eye on while she was under the conservatorship.
“My phone number was blocked for her after she left the facility, and we haven’t spoken since!” Fitzgerald added. I have made every effort to get in touch with her but have always been unsuccessful.
Lynne and Jamie Spears, Britney’s parents, have been estranged for a long time.
Fitzgerald’s reaction was uploaded by Lynne on her Instagram, along with the statement that she “had all the ‘full chats’ as well.”
After being released from the facility, Britney wrote to her court-appointed attorney, Samuel D. Ingham III, in the final screenshot from her 2019 text conversations that she intended to make some changes in her life.
She said, wanting her conservatorship to end, “I want to discuss going to court when this is done and getting my medical rights.”
When this program is completed, I want to completely stop working. Britney said to Ingham, who resigned in 2021 to make room for former federal prosecutor Mathew Rosengart to take the case, “I want to live for me and have an interesting life.”
The singer of “Oops!… I Did It Again” wrapped up her Instagram caption by sharing a text message that her sister, Jamie Lynn Spears, supposedly sent her at the same moment. She did not, however, attach a screenshot of that conversation.
Jamie Lynn, 31, allegedly wrote, “‘They’re not going to let you go, so why are you fighting it?'”
Britney gave her first public court testimony last summer. She said that her father, Jamie, put her in a mental health facility after they had a fight about her “Domination” Las Vegas residency, which has since been canceled.
At the time, she told the judge that “my dad and everyone engaged in this conservatorship—including my managers, who had a significant role in punishing me when I said no—ma’am, they should be in jail.”
