Britney Spears

Even if you’re not on Instagram there’s no way you could have missed seeing at least one or two posts by Britney Spears at some point. Whether it’s a clip of her dancing to camera, using the halls of her Los Angeles mansion as a catwalk to show off her favourite outfits or one of her more ‘spiritual’ posts, she is one of the most talked about people on the app – and she has 25.2 million followers.

Only, as detailed in a post that went viral, and was shared by the Diet Prada Instagram account this week, this is all despite the fact the pop star is not believed to have direct access to her own phone or social media accounts without supervision. The post delved into some of the details of the conservatorship which Britney has been under – by order of her father Jamie Spears – since 2008, when she was sectioned and hospitalised after a very public breakdown. These details include Britney’s lack of control over: her finances, her estate, medical decisions and medication, her career, as well as decreeing she is unable to drive a car, have children, get married, do live interviews or meet up with anyone without being accompanied. These terms have never been confirmed publicly by Jamie or Britney, however.
