Britney Spears is no stranger to calling out her family on social media, and has now taken aim at her mum Lynne Spears.

The pop star, 40, was freed from a conservatorship governed by her family back in 2021 and is getting used to her newfound freedom with luxury trips away and speaking honestly on social media.

Having previously sparred with sister Jamie Lynn Spears, and calling out her father for standing over the conservatorship, on Friday the Everytime singer slammed her mother using a scene from Crossroads.

Britney starred in the 2002 drama film as teenager Lucy, who sets out to find her mum after being abandoned by her as a child.

In her new Instagram post, Britney claimed that what her real-life mother had done to her was ‘worse’.

Britney shared the heartbreaking scene which saw her character crying on a bathroom floor after being told by her mother, played by Sex and the City’ star Kim Cattrall, that she was ‘never wanted’ and was a ‘mistake’.

Accompanying the clip, Britney wrote in a caption: ‘Scene in a movie I did a ways back.

‘When I realized my whole journey to find my mom… and she doesn’t want to see me !!! I know… PRETTY F*****G SAD!!!

‘Psss I mean it’s actually less worse than what my mom did to me in real life so…(sic)’

The accusations come shortly after Britney’s Instagram disappeared for several hours, sparking concern from fans who wondered whether she had been banned.

This wasn’t the first time the mum-of-two took time away from the site, as her account was no longer visible for a short period in September.
