In a caption on Instagram, the star apologised to her social media followers for "pretending" to be OK.

The post is markedly different from her usual presence on Instagram, which is largely upbeat.

The star shared a picture of an Albert Einstein quote about fairy-tales and addressed her fans in the caption.

"I just want to tell you guys a little secret," she wrote. "I believe as people we all want the fairytale life and by the way I’ve posted … my life seems to look and be pretty amazing … I think that’s what we all strive for !!!!

"That was one of my mother’s best traits … no matter how shitty a day was when I was younger … for the sake of me and my siblings she always pretended like everything was OK.

"I’m bringing this to peoples attention because I don’t want people to think my life is perfect because IT’S DEFINITELY NOT AT ALL … and if you have read anything about me in the news this week … you obviously really know now it’s not !!!!

"I apologize for pretending like I've been ok the past two years... I did it becasue of my pride and I was embarrassed to share what happened to me."

Britney went on to say that Instagram offered her a "cool outlet to share" her presence and existence.

On Wednesday, Spears spoke directly about her experience of her conservatorship in a Los Angeles court. In her testimony, the star shared some very worrying details about the way in which her personal and financial life is being managed.

For instance, the singer stated that she has an IUD in her body that she is unable to remove.

The star stressed the physical and mental toll it has had on her.

"I’m not happy, I can’t sleep, I’m depressed, I cry every day," she said. "I truly believe this conservatorship is abusive. My request is to end the conservatorship without being evaluated like before."
