Britney Spears posting about her first iPad is heartwarming, but alarms some fans

Spears has been under conservatorship since 2010. The first iPad came out in 2008.

Britney Spears posted about buying her first iPad on Instagram, and her fans are thrilled for her.

"Okay guys, great news. I got my first iPad today," Spears said in an ecstatic Instagram video posted Friday. "So, I've got my hair up, I'm in my yard, and I've been working. But, I came into the kitchen and saw something I ordered, and it is a freaking new iPad."

She added that her sons Sean and Jayden, who are 15 and 14 years old, have iPads of their own but this is her first.

"This is just a groundbreaking day. I've always had a little phone, but now this iPad is in my hands and I feel like my life is changing as we speak and I am so excited," Spears gushed. "Upward bound! Yes!"

The first iPad was released in 2010. Spears, however, has been under legal guardianship since 2008.

The 39-year-old pop star treated herself to the tablet amid a public fight to end her father's conservatorship over her finances, career, and medical care. Despite continuing to perform and release music, Spears has been legally dependent on a conservator for the past 13 years.

After her father Jamie Spears stepped down as personal conservator in Sept. 2019, Spears' medical care fell under the charge of temporary guardian Jodi Montgomery. Her father remains in control of her finances as conservator of her estate. Fans are convinced that she asks for help in coded social media posts, and the tag #FreeBritney is now a rallying cry of support for her independence.

Spears' iPad purchase, while heartwarming, also alarmed fans.

One fan compared Spears to a "modern day princess being set free after years of being locked up in her castle" in a comment on her Reel.

"I'm so happy that finally she can buy her own things," another commented. "And...start doing things she always wanted to do."

Though the video is still public on the Reels section of Spears' account, it no longer appears on her main Instagram grid. The video's absence from Spears' Instagram grid stoked further speculation of her conservator team's control over her image. Another video of Spears in her garden is no longer public, either.

The case against her father is making progress. Britney's new lawyer Mathew Rosengart filed a motion on Thursday requesting the expedited removal of Jamie Spears as the conservator of her estate. The motion would accelerate the process before the next hearing, which is scheduled for September.

A court filing obtained by People called for the "immediate suspension" of Jamie Spears as conservator, and asked for CPA Jason Rubin to be appointed as temporary conservator. Rubin specializes in handling elder financial abuse cases and managing complex trust portfolios, Vanity Fair reports.

"Although a two-month wait for a hearing on the Petition may not seem significant in the context of 13 years, Ms. Spears should not be forced to continue to feel traumatized, lose sleep, and suffer further," the motion continues. "Every day matters."

In the meantime, Britney continues to post delightful content from her iPad.
