Britney Spears takes a joy ride in her Mercedes-Benz near Thousand Oaks home


She’s shared some jubilant posts on social media in recent days after her father Jamie Spears announced via his lawyers that he would be stepping down from her conservatorship in the future.

And Britney Spears was spotted getting some fresh air on Saturday, just days after the news broke.

The 39-year-old pop icon was seen driving her white Mercedes-Benz nearby her luxurious home in Thousand Oaks, California.

Britney appeared to be casually dressed for the afternoon drive, and she matched her car with a set of playful white wayfarer-style sunglasses.

It’s not clear if she had a specific destination or if she just wanted some time out of the house, as she was seen driving around in circles not far from her home. 

The Womanizer singer was also glimpsed in her pricy vehicle on Friday, when she relaxed with a cigarette.

She was pictured browsing through her phone while the car was parked.

The ability to drive seems to be important to Britney, as she specifically mentioned her rides with her boyfriend Sam Asghari during an impassioned statement she delivered in front of a judge in regards to her ongoing conservatorship battle. 

According to her, the conservatorship doesn’t allow her to let Sam take the wheel.

‘All I want is to own my money and for this to end and for my boyfriend to be able to drive me in his f**king car,’ she said in a fury.

As the conservatorship has allegedly had such tight constraints on what she’s allowed to do, getting a little fresh air in her car may be a welcome respite from spending time at home.

Since her father’s announcement that he plans to step down sometime in the future, Britney referenced her cryptic ‘Project Rose’ on Instagram. 

Britney’s super-short video featured her in a tightly pleated white patterned peasant top that she appears to have worn previously. 

She was seen sniffing the flower in the photo, which only lasted about a second.

‘Project Rose is a year old and 9 days old!!!!’ she gushed in her caption. ‘Why does this project smell so f***ing good still today???? Psss if you look closely the mood ring I’m wearing was for my song MOOD RING!!!!’

Although Britney doesn’t appear to have explicitly stated what Project Rose or her other color-coded projects entail, they appear to simply refer to a series of coordinated photos featuring recurring colors or objects.

In the case of Project Rose, which she sometimes refers to as Project Red, she seems to pose with either a red flower or other red items or clothing.  

Later on Friday, Britney shared two extreme closeups of her face as she documented her recent weight-loss attempt.

She didn’t appear to be wearing a shirt and was lit similarly to a topless post from July 30.

A slightly zoomed-out second photo appeared to show her covering her bust with her hands.

‘It’s really weird whenever I try to slim down it usually starts with my legs first … then my stomach … then my face … and that’s when I know I’ve actually lost weight!!!!’ she explained. 

Although she sounded excited at getting results, the hitmaker wasn’t totally sold on her slimmer figure and seemed to miss some of her curves.

‘When you swipe to the second pic you can actually really see how slim my face is but I’m not so sure I like it… In the old days when women were heavier they were considered more attractive to men because it was a sign of wealth!!!!’ she continued.

‘I have a couple of throwback dances from this summer where I looked heavier but it’s weird cause I think I was happier!!!! Oh well … sorry for my shallow talk of weight … but it is what it is you know!!!! GOD BLESS YOU ALL ☀️!!!!!’

Mixed feelings: 'I’m not so sure I like it,' Britney said of her weight loss and added that she was happier in dancing videos where she was heavier

Britney’s latest posts following a joyous dancing video from earlier on Friday.

She put on a high-energy display in black lace catsuit while striking a number of poses, captioning the post simply with three kiss emojis. 

It follows Thursday’s court filing by Jamie, 69, who says he’s finally planning to relinquish control of his daughter’s estate, marking a huge victory for the singer as she battles to end a 13-year conservatorship — even though he did not immediately resign.

Britney has been known to share a wealth of content for her fans on social media, and has made more than a few pointed digs at her family members and her current situation.

Immediately after the news of Jamie stepping down, Britney posted yet another dancing of herself, with a caption that said ‘letting go is freedom!’ 

Jamie has been paying himself $16,000 a month since 2008 to manage his daughter’s estimated $60million fortune.

He announced Thursday that he would stepping down, as his daughter has long demanded, provided Judge Brenda Penny asked him to and there was a plan in place for Britney’s care.

Britney’s lawyer, Mathew Rosengart, said it was ‘a vindication for Britney’.

‘We are pleased that Mr. Spears and his lawyer have today conceded in a filing that he must be removed,’ he said. ‘It is vindication for Britney.’

In the court documents, obtained by TMZ, his lawyers write: ‘There are, in fact, no actual grounds for suspending or removing Mr. Spears as the Conservator of the Estate … and it is highly debatable whether a change in conservator at this time would be in Ms. Spears’ best interests.

‘Nevertheless, even as Mr. Spears is the unremitting target of unjustified attacks, he does not believe that a public battle with his daughter over his continuing service as her conservator would be in her best interests.’

Meanwhile, Britney appears to be free to continue to post as she pleases on her Instagram account.

Her friend, Paris Hilton took to Twitter yesterday, to express her relief that Britney is a a step closer to her freedom.

‘I’m so happy to hear this news,’ the socialite, 40, wrote with emojis of clapping hands and a heart. ‘It’s been so long overdue but I’m so glad that Britney is on her way to finally being free.’

The hotel heiress added, ‘Sending so much love!’ adding the now-ubiquitous hashtag #FreeBritney.

Rosie O’Donnell also took to Instagram to comment on the latest development in the case, sending her well-wishes to the pop star, as she said: ‘That’s right, he’s stepping down, all the pressure worked, good for you Britney, being brave – tick tock you don’t stop!’

Jamie, who has always insisted he was acting in the best interests of his superstar daughter, said that he will work with the legal teams to bring the complex case to an end.

‘So, even though he must contest this unjustified Petition for his removal, Mr. Spears intends to work with the Court and his daughter’s new attorney to prepare for an orderly transition to a new conservator,’ his lawyers wrote.

Jamie, who is not believed to have spoken to his daughter since before Christmas, said that he will continue to look out for his daughter’s best interests.

‘Regardless of his formal title, Mr. Spears will always be Ms. Spears’ father, he will always love her unconditionally, and he will always look out for her best interests,’ the lawyers said.

‘If the public knew all the facts of Ms. Spears’ personal life, not only her highs but also her lows, all of the addiction and mental health issues that she has struggled with, and all of the challenges of the Conservatorship, they would praise Mr. Spears for the job he has done, not vilify him.’

He said that the arrangement ‘has worked as intended’ and it was not surprising that Britney had felt ‘constrained’.

The lawyers wrote: ‘The Conservatorship has provided Ms. Spears with a structure to help her navigate the daily challenges of her personal life, family matters, medical issues, and career.

‘By nature, the structure includes safeguards to protect the Conservatee from self-harm or harm from others.

‘It is not surprising that Ms. Spears has often felt constrained or subject to excessive supervision.

‘But, at least for the greater part of the past thirteen years, the Conservatorship has worked as intended.’
