Britney Spears spoke out against her family this week, sharing with fans that her loved ones have hurt her “deeper than you'll ever know,” and that she’s “tired” of being “the bigger person.”

On Monday, the pop sensation posted an emotional caption on Instagram alongside a snapshot of a typewriter and some roses.

“Don't you find it weird when you jump through hoops to organize trips or set up lunch dates with people you love only to know they'll bail on you or leave after 10 minutes 🙄 ???” the 39-year-old wrote. “It's humiliating and it's like every person I've ever opened to immediately says they'll be gone on a trip for two weeks after ... OK I get it ... they're only available to me when it's convenient for them ... well I'm no longer available to any of them now 🙅🏼‍♀️ !!!”

“I don't mind being alone,“ she continued, “and actually I'm tired of being this understanding Mother Teresa ... if you're rude to me then I'm done ... peace out ✌🏼  !!!”

She then goes on to call out her family specifically and said that “this message” was for them and that even though she’s about to be released from the conservatorship that has controlled her life and finances for the last 13 years, she still wants “justice.”

“I'm only 5'4" and I've played the bigger person my entire life ... do you know how hard that is ???” she said, before putting this quote in a separate Instagram post all on its own shortly after.

Spears often uses social media to share her feelings and keep fans in the loop about what’s going on in her private life. She previously called out her family earlier this month in a post that lambasted them for saying “things like ‘sorry, you’re in a conservatorship’” and celebrated her “amazing attorney Mathew Rosengart who has helped change my life.”

In September, L.A. County Superior Court Judge Brenda Penny suspended Spears’ father, Jamie Spears, from being his daughter’s conservator. She instated accountant John Zabel as Spears’ new, temporary conservator. An upcoming hearing in November is slated to decide whether Spears will be freed from the conservatorship for good.
