Britney Spears fans think she has her 'real' voice back in a new video. Watch here:
The singer's personal affairs and finances have been overseen by a court-ordered conservatorship - a legal arrangement usually reserved for the elderly or infirm - since 2008, after she was deemed unable to look after herself following a series of public breakdowns that were splashed across the press.
The pop star has been embroiled in a highly-publicised battle to remove her dad Jamie from the conservatorship, with fans backing her under the #FreeBritney movement.
Many of her supporters claim she has been strictly controlled, and has even been forced to put on an inauthentic voice. However, fans rejoiced following a recent Instagram post, in which they believe the 39-year-old is speaking with her 'real' voice once again.
In the video, Spears talks about her plans to sort out her yard and her ambition to get a Koi carp pond.
But it wasn't the carp that people were harping on about - it was her voice.
Commenting on the video - which has been viewed more than 680,000 times - one person said: "Ahhhh it's her real voice."
Another added: "ACTUAL SPEAKING VOICE LADIES AND GENTS"
A third commented: "Y'all she really got her Instagram back and her real voice! I could cry."
During her conservatorship hearing in Los Angeles in June, Spears said her dad 'should be in jail'.
Addressing the court, she said: "I am not happy, I can't sleep. I'm so angry, it's insane. And I'm depressed.
"My dad and anyone involved in this conservatorship, including my management... they should be in jail.
"The last time I spoke to you [the judge] ... made me feel like I was dead. I am telling you again because I am not lying ... so maybe you can understand the depth and the degree and the damages... I deserve changes."
She added: "I truly believe this conservatorship is abusive. I don't feel like I can live a full life."
Her request to remove her dad from the conservatorship was denied by the judge, but she has since been allowed to hire a new lawyer of her choice, Mathew S. Rosengart. He has now moved once again to have Jamie replaced as her conservator.
Spears said things were looking up for her in another video shared on Instagram.
She said: "I'm sure a lot of you guys are wondering how I'm doing and since the cat is out of the bag, literally out of the bag, and you guys know my situation.
"I do wanna let you guys know that things are way better than what I ever anticipated."
