“I would love to show my emotions and tears on how I really feel but (for) some reason I’ve always had to hide my weaknesses,” she said.
Addressing her father who held her in a conservatorship for over a decade until November 2021, the “Everytime” singer said: “If I wasn’t my dad’s strong soldier, I would be sent away to places to get fixed by doctors!!!

In his divorce petition filed Wednesday in Los Angeles, Asghari cited “irreconcilable differences”. According to documents, the 29-year-old Iranian-American actor asks that spousal support and payment of legal fees be paid by Spears.
Asghari, also a model and fitness trainer, first met Spears in 2016 when he co-starred with her in the music video for her song “Slumber Party”.
The couple got engaged in September 2021 and wed in a small ceremony last June, seven months after the court-ordered conservatorship Spears had been under for 13 years was ended by a Los Angeles judge in a landmark court hearing.
Rumours of their marital struggles were reported in US tabloids this year. The two had recently been seen without their wedding rings in public.
In his own post on Instagram, Asghari said: “After 6 years of love and commitment to each other, my wife and I have decided to end our journey together. We will hold onto the love and respect we have for each other and I wish her the best always.
