Los Angeles, California – Britney Spears made massive accusations about her family and her "abusive conservatorship" in a new 22-minute YouTube voice memo, and her mother has since responded.

On Sunday, the pop star simply tweeted a YouTube link, which contained only a white screen and the singer's voice.

In the 22-minute recording, the 40-year-old opened up about her family's role in her 13-year long conservatorship, which controlled her health, her personal decisions, and her finances.

It was deleted soon after it was posted, but was up long enough to elicit a response from Britney's mother, Lynne.

"Britney, your whole life I have tried my best to support your dreams and wishes! And also, I have tried my best to help you out of hardships! I have never and will never turn my back on you!" Lynne's official Instagram posted on Sunday night.

"Your rejections to the countless times I have flown out and calls make me feel hopeless! I have tried everything," she claimed.

Britney deleted her Instagram account last week, and also dropped her first new music in six years – Hold Me Closer, a duet with Elton John. She has continued to post on Twitter.

Although it's since been removed, the lengthy voice memo was captured by fans and reports, and made more bombshell revelations about her conservatorship.

The pop star dropped more bombs about the arrangement of "control" in Sunday's voice message.

"I know now it was all premeditated," she said. "A woman introduced the idea [of a conservatorship] to my dad, and my mom actually helped him follow through and made it all happen. It was all basically set up. There was no drugs in my system, no alcohol, nothing. It was pure abuse. And I haven’t even really shared half of it."

Britney recalled first being taken into the conservatorship: "There was a SWAT team in my home, three helicopters ... They held me down on a gurney. Again, none of it made sense."

The singer has said she was forced to work, tour, and stay on birth control against her will, and was not allowed to drive or meet friends. She was also put on heavy medication, which texts shared by her mother last month confirmed.

"I’d never remember feeling so demoralized," Britney said. "And just, they made me feel like nothing. And I went along with it because I was scared.

"I had to just play this role that everything was OK all the time, and I had to go along with it because I knew they could hurt me."

Britney’s conservatorship officially ended in November 2021 following a years-long court battle. She has since married her longtime partner, Sam Asghari. None of her family members attended the wedding.

The Princess of Pop said in her memo that she has been offered "tons of opportunities" to tell her story to media outlets, including a sit-down with Oprah Winfrey, but said she feels "like it’s kind of silly. So I’m, I’m here, honestly, just to open myself to others and try to shed a light." She is expected to drop a tell-all memoir about her experience.

It is unclear why the YouTube recording has since been deleted.

"Know this: my life has been far from easy and you’re not alone," she told fans.
