And not too long ago, fans were very worried for the huge pop star.

Why? It was all down to reports that Britney wanted to remove her controlling father as her sole conservator...

The #FreeBritney campaign has been kicking off worldwide and fans have been demanding justice for the singer.

Britney held her silence for a long while.

But now, yet another troubling video has been posted by the singer... leaving fans seriously concerned.

Now, it all started in 1998...

Since 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.

With 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.

Bad 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.

Britney's mental health began to dramatically deteriorate, and the endless attention and pressure from the public and the press alike started to take its toll.

And in 2007, Britney finally snapped.

The singer suffered a highly-public breakdown in the full glare of the world's spotlight.

Her breakdown was triggered by a number of different factors...

She 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...

Birtney 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.

Britney 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.

The 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.

In 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...

But she was gradually able to rebuild her relationship with her sons after regaining some of her custody rights and get healthy, before eventually starting to focus on her music comeback. And, despite a few health issues along the way, Britney has become an icon in her own right.

She has gone on to win a number of awards...

And has since continued making huge strides forward, winning back custody of her children, making more successful music, landing a lucrative residency in Las Vegas, and having a number of healthy relationships. She is even in a happy, long-term relationship with her actor boyfriend, Sam Asghari.

However, one sinister consequence of her breakdown still remains to this day.

And that's the questionable role her dad has in her life.

As stated earlier, Jamie controls every aspect of his daughter's life.

A 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.

Concern about the star's wellbeing has been steadily growing...

And many fans have been left worried by her recent Instagram activity, which includes a number of bizarre and cryptic videos.

Things have been strange, to say the least...

So the hashtag and movement, #FreeBritney was catapulted back into the spotlight.

Over the last couple of months, people have been using the hashtag to show their support and solidarity with Britney...

And some even took to the streets of Hollywood to march in protest of her oppressive situation.

Last year, Britney had addressed the movement, writing on Instagram:

"You may not know this about me, but I am strong, and stand up for what I want! Your love and dedication is amazing, but what I need right now is a little bit of privacy to deal with all the hard things that life is throwing my way."

And now, fast forward one year...

Britney has seemingly made the first step in reclaiming the control over her own life.

It was reported last month that she no longer wants her dad to be in control of her conservatorship.

The singer's lawyer filed paperwork explaining that she is "strongly opposed" to her father having control of her estate and finances, and instead wishes for her temporary conservator, Jodi Montgomery, to take on the role permanently, TMZ reported.

Britney's attorney, Samuel Ingham, said in a statement:

"We are now at a point where the conservatorship must be changed substantially in order to reflect the major changes in her current lifestyle and her stated wishes." But this sadly won't be an easy journey for Britney as Ingham told the court that he believes Jamie will "aggressively" contest the changes requested by his client.

Fans continue to worry about the singer's wellbeing...

And her first Instagram story in months sparked a lot of concern.

Britney took to her Instagram Story earlier this week to advertise "Project Rose."

via: Twitter

"People have been saying that a lot of my posts are not new - but they're old - but just to let you guys know none of my pictures or posts are more than a month old," she started by explaining.

She went on to admit that she did wear the same top "seventeen times."

via: Twitter

"But its for a project! Project Rose... And you will be seeing way more of Project Rose in the future."

Fans were left feeling uneasy, to say the least...

And they flocked to Twitter to express their concerns over the "hidden meaning" behind Britney's bizarre message - with some fans even suggesting her message is in relation to an organization that prevents human trafficking.

Here's the video in question:

But the latest Britney news isn't only about her.

It also involves Justin Timberlake.

And people are really disgusted with him after a new documentary all about Britney dropped recently.

They're demanding he apologised to her.

And claim that he had a big role in tarnishing Britney's reputation after the pair broke up back in 2002.

Timberlake claimed Britney was unfaithful to him.

But despite Britney maintaining her innocence, her image was certainly distorted...
