The letter comes after Britney Spears finally terminated her conservatorship in November of 2021, following a three-year legal battle.
Britney Spears has been invited to speak in Washington D.C. after receiving a letter from two US lawmakers, who asked her to "describe in her own words how she achieved justice," after ending the conservatorship that commanded her life for nearly 14 years.
The Congressmen, Democrats Charlie Crist of Florida and Eric Swalwell of California, wrote in a December 1st letter to the singer that they want, "to personally invite Spears and her counsel to meet with us in congress."
The lawmakers continued, describing how closely they followed her legal battle, and their "elation" at her eventual victory in September of 2021. "Your journey towards justice will inspire and empower many others who are improperly silenced by the conservatorship process," they wrote.
Spears took to Instagram, posting a photo of the letter last night.
"I'm grateful that my story was even ACKNOWLEDGED!!! Because of the letter, I felt heard and like I mattered for the first time in my life," she captioned the post. "In a world where your own family goes against you, it's hard to actually find people that get it and show empathy!!!!"
Spears emphasised that she doesn't consider herself to be a "victim," but noted she does want to help other people in situations similar to hers.
"Again, I’m not here to be a victim although I’m the first to admit I’m pretty messed up by it all. I want to help others in vulnerable situations, take life by the balls and be brave," she wrote. "I wish I would have been … I was so scared and nothing is worse than your own family doing what they did to me. I’m lucky to have a small circle of adorable friends who I can count on. In the mean time, thank you to Congress for inviting me to the White House."
Last year, the pop star won the three-year legal battle against her father, Jamie Spears, after he posed as her conservator for over 13 years.
Spears took to social media to celebrate after Judge Brenda Penny ended the conservatorship late last year.
"Good God I love my fans so much it’s crazy. I think I’m gonna cry the rest of the day !!!! Best day ever … praise the Lord … can I get an Amen," she wrote before adding, "#FreedBritney."
The elder Spears was made conservator of Britney's person and estate back in 2008, after she was deemed unfit to look after herself after suffering a series of mental breakdowns. She publicly testified on the conservatorship June 23, 2021, where she revealed details of her mistreatment and pleaded for her father’s removal, saying “I want my life back.”
Jaime spears was officially removed in September of that year, and the conservatorship was completely terminated that November.
