Britney Spears is continuing to open up about her controversial conservatorship as it approaches its end.

The singer was under the control of her father, Jamie Spears since 2008, who acted as her guardian following a public meltdown. Earlier this year, however, she testified in court to the abusive nature of the court-appointed legal ordeal, and after years of fighting, Jamie was dismissed in September.

Now, the singer, alongside a photo of pink roses and a typewriter, shares on Instagram her thoughts one month on.

She begins the post: "Don't you find it weird when you jump through hoops to organise trips or set up lunch dates with people you love only to know they'll bail on you or leave after 10 minutes ??? It's humiliating and it's like every person I've ever opened to immediately says they'll be gone on a trip for two weeks after ... OK I get it ... they're only available to me when it's convenient for them … well I'm no longer available to any of them now !!! [sic]"

She added she doesn't mind "being alone," but that she's also "tired of being this understanding Mother Teresa" figure.

She made it clear who she was referring to, writing: "This message is to my family ... for hurting me deeper than you'll ever know !!! I know the conservatorship is about to be over but I still want justice !!! I'm only 5'4" and I've played the bigger person my entire life ... do you know how hard that is ??? [sic]"

A hearing will be held on 12 November and is expected to formally dissolve the singer's conservatorship.
