This past week, Spears, 39, posted a time-lapse video of herself painting a large mural, captioning the clip to Instagram with, “As you guys know there’s a lot of change going on in my life at the moment and today I was feeling overwhelmed so I went to Michael’s and got white paper and paint.”
The 1-minute clip reveals Britney, in an oversized T-shirt and sneakers, applying a variety of colorful paints to a large sheet of paper sprawled across her living room floor.
“I wanted to see color and this is me messing around !!!” Britney wrote in the caption. “Ok so I’m not a professional painter ???????????? but I certainly felt like I was !!!”
“This is an expression of how I’m feeling at the moment … rebellious… colorful…bright…bold …spontaneous…magical…so obviously showing my true colors ???????????? !!!!” she added. “If you look closely you can see find a fish in there somewhere ???? ???????? !!!”
And while Britney did not reveal what exactly was the “change” that pushed her to create but the post comes a day after her new attorney Mathew Rosengart filed a petition to remove the star’s father, Jamie Spears, as her financial conservator.
Rosengart petitioned for Jamie, 69, to be replaced with Jason Rubin. Rubin is a certified public accountant at Certified Strategies Inc, to manage her estate — according to court documents.
“Ms. Spears respectfully submits that the Court should appoint her nominee; in that, it is an objectively intelligent preference to nominate a highly qualified, professional fiduciary in this circumstance,” the documents read.
“Moreover, Ms. Spears respectfully submits that, given the Court’s recognition at the July 14, 2021, hearing that Ms. Spears has sufficient capacity to choose her own legal counsel, she likewise has sufficient capacity to make this nomination.”
Britney was placed under a conservatorship in 2008 following a public breakdown. The judge appointed Jamie as both the conservator of her person and the conservator of her estate.
In late 2019, Jamie stepped down as his daughter’s personal conservator with Jodi Montgomery, a care manager and licensed conservator, taking over the role. As of late, he remains in charge of Britney’s finances after fiduciary company Bessemer Trust resigned as co-conservator of her estate.
