For those who aren’t aware, Britney has long condemned Lynne for her alleged involvement in the singer’s controversial conservatorship, which was in place from 2008 until November 2021.

Under the tight legal arrangement, Britney’s life and finances were controlled by her father, Jamie Spears, and a group of lawyers. She spoke out against its “abusive” terms during an emotional court hearing in June 2021.

It was during this testimony that Britney also said she wanted to "sue" her entire family for allegedly not helping her while she was struggling.

Shortly after the conservatorship was terminated, Lynne requested $650,000 from Britney’s estate for legal fees, which her attorneys claimed were incurred after working hard to fight the arrangement.

Then, seemingly in response, Britney publicly claimed that Lynne was the one who came up with the idea of placing her under the conservatorship in the first place.

Sharing a now-deleted Instagram post in Nov. 2021, Britney wrote, “My dad may have started the conservatorship 13 years ago, but what people don't know is that my mom is the one who gave him the idea!”

“I will never get those years back. [My mom] secretly ruined my life… So take your whole ‘I have NO IDEA what's going on’ attitude, and go fuck yourself,” she went on.

“You know exactly what you did. My dad is not smart enough to ever think of a conservatorship,” she added.

Two weeks later, Britney slammed her mom again, writing on Instagram, “[It] still blows my mind every day I wake up how my family and the conservatorship were able to do what they did to me … it was demoralizing and degrading.”

“I’m not even mentioning all the bad things they did to me which they should all be in jail for … yes including my church going mother,” she added.

At this time, it was reported that Lynne had attempted to reconnect with Britney, but the singer had refused to see her.

“A few weeks before the conservatorship ended, Lynne flew to Los Angeles to try to reconnect with Britney,” a source told Page Six.

“But Britney didn’t even let Lynne into her house,” the insider claimed. “She is furious with her. Lynne tried over a number of days to try to visit, but Britney just shut her down.”

In the past year and a half since these reports circulated, Britney has been somewhat focused on rebuilding her life post-conservatorship. She got married to her longtime partner, Sam Asgahri, in June 2022, made her long-anticipated music comeback in August, and appeared to squash her yearslong feud with Jamie Lynn in December.

And now, Britney has revealed that she and Lynne have tried to “make things right,” too.

“Psss… I’m so blessed we can have coffee together after 14 years !!! Let’s go shopping afterwards !!!” she added, seemingly referencing the fact that she allegedly wasn’t allowed to drink coffee under the 13-year long conservatorship.
