In a rare move, Britney Spears has attempted her own version of the "Instagram vs Reality" trend.

And while many people were praising the star for the snaps...
via: Getty ImagesSome have noticed something worrying in the post.
Now, it all started in 1998...
via: GettySince starring in The All-New Mickey Mouse Club, aged eleven, she embarked on a highly successful career as a singer and performer with the release of the hit single "...Baby One More Time".
Britney quickly became one of the most famous popstars of her decade.
via: GettyWith hits such as "Oops, I did it again," "Slave 4 U," and "Britney," the Mississippi born singer consistently topped the charts.
She was even affectionately hailed the princess of pop.Britney seemed to be at the peak of her career - churning out hit after hit.
But, early on, Britney's life started to take a turn for the worst.
via: GettyBad press began during Britney's breakup from husband and childhood sweetheart, Justin Timberlake, which was a very public and ugly split.
Things only got worse from there.
And in 2007, Britney finally snapped.
Her breakdown was triggered by a number of different factors...
via: GettyShe had spent years battling mental health problems and, after her split from husband Kevin Federline, the father of her 2 sons, she headed to rehab in Antigua.
However, her stay didn't last...
via: GettyBirtney checked herself out after only twenty-four hours and flew back to L.A.
The pictures of her hacking her own hair off shocked the world.
via: GettyBritney had walked into Esther's Hair Salon in Tarzana, an upmarket neighborhood of LA, and asked the owner to shave her head because her hair extensions were too tight. And, when the hairdresser refused, the singer grabbed the clippers and went on to shave off her long locks herself.
Britney's breakdown was publicized all over the world.
via: GettyThe image of Britney, then aged twenty-five, emerging from the salon with a freshly-shaven head and attacking a paparazzo's car with an umbrella became one of the most famous snaps of that decade.
A few months following this, Britney was hospitalized.
via: GettyIn January 2008, she was seen being carried out of her house after reportedly overdosing on prescription amphetamines and locking herself in the bathroom with her youngest son, Jayden, as she refused to hand him back to Federline, who had full custody of the children.
It was a long road to recovery for the pop star...
She has gone on to win a number of awards...
However, one sinister consequence of her breakdown still remains to this day.
via: GettyAnd that's the questionable role her dad has in her life.
As stated earlier, Jamie controls every aspect of his daughter's life.
via: GettyA Los Angeles court named Jamie as the permanent conservator of his daughter’s affairs in 2008, and he was named as the permanent co-conservator of her estate, along with an attorney, Andrew Wallet.
Fans believe that, to this day, Britney's dad dictates her every move...
And many are finding the whole set up to be incredibly problematic, not to mention detrimental to her already fragile mental health.
