celebrated her latest legal victory by doing cartwheels in a video.
Spears requested a hearing last month to end the conservatorship
she has been under for the last 13 years, which has given her father
and other parties control over various aspects of her finances and personal affairs.
She made a series of allegations about the legal arrangement while speaking remotely, including that she was forced to take lithium instead of her regular medication and to use birth control despite her desire to have a child
with her boyfriend
, Sam Asghari
The singer also requested the right to select her own legal representative, which was granted at a subsequent hearing on Wednesday.
Spears celebrated the appointment of an attorney of her choice by posting an Instagram
video of herself riding a horse and doing cartwheels in a public park, accompanied by KT Tunstall's "Black
Horse And The Cherry
She posted the middle finger emoji and said that things were "coming along."
“I feel GRATITUDE and BLESSED!!!!” Spears wrote, adding, “Thank you to my fans
who are supporting me... You have no idea how much it means to me to be supported by such awesome fans!!!! God bless you all!!!!”
For the first time
, she concluded her caption with the hashtag #FreeBritney.

Spears requested that her father be charged with "conservatorship abuse
" during Wednesday's hearing.
Spears told the judge
over the phone that Jamie Spears
had limited her coffee intake and confiscated vitamins she was taking for her hair
“Ma'am, that's not abuse, that's just fucking cruelty,” the singer sobbed over the phone to Judge Brenda Penny
, “Excuse my language, but it's the truth.”
Spears concluded, reading from a prepared speech, "I'm here to press charges. I'm angry, and I'll go there... I want him removed, a court-appointed lawyer, and investigations, and I think that's it."
Mathew Rosengart, a former federal prosecutor, will now represent Spears in the future, with the attorney expected to file a petition to end the conservatorship soon.
