Britney Spears said she has been praying as she prepares for a crucial court hearing which could bring the termination of her conservatorship.
The pop superstar could regain control of her personal life and finances on Friday when a judge in Los Angeles hears arguments to end the complex legal arrangement she has been under since 2008.
Spears, 39, scored a significant victory in September when her father was suspended from his role overseeing her money.
Jamie, 69, has since called for the conservatorship’s immediate termination, though his daughter’s lawyer has accused him of attempting to dodge difficult questions about his work on the arrangement.
Spears has been vocal on social media in recent weeks and in a since-deleted post said her mother Lynne “seriously ruined” her life.
She returned to Instagram days before the next court hearing and told her 35 million followers “I haven’t prayed for something more in my life”.
Spears said: “This week is gonna be very interesting for me !!! I haven’t prayed for something more in my life !!! I know I’ve said some things on my Insta out of anger and I’m sorry but I’m only human … and I believe you’d feel the same way if you were me !!!
“Anyway it’s a new day and I can’t say I’m never going to complain again … cuz who knows !!! God bless you all and have a great day !!!”
What has been described as the world’s most famous conservatorship exploded back into the headlines earlier this year following the release of the documentary Framing Britney Spears.
It explored the celebrity and media landscape at the time the star suffered a series of public meltdowns, including shaving her own head in 2007.
In June the singer delivered bombshell courtroom testimony in which she made a series of damaging allegations against those overseeing her life and career.
She alleged she was being prevented from having more children and described the conservatorship as “abusive”.
In July Spears hired Mathew S Rosengart, a high-powered Hollywood lawyer who has fulfilled his promise to take a more aggressive approach in terminating the arrangement.
After coming under intense pressure over his role controlling his daughter’s money, Jamie asked a judge to consider ending the conservatorship.
He has also been forced to deny bugging Spears’s private conversations.
