The pop star appeared virtually in front of a court hearing on Wednesday to deliver her statement, where she expressed how challenging the experience had really been.

#FreeBritney has started taking off on the Twitterverse once again

The hashtag has already started taking off once again, with "Britney Spears" becoming one of Twitter's top trends and #FreeBritney taking the lead.

Britney also opened up at the hearing about her social media presence, calling a majority of it a way to cope and "a lie" to show people that she was happy and to convince herself of the same. "I am traumatised," she said, speaking to the judge virtually. "I just want my life back."

Jamie Spears was granted control over his daughter's personal and business affairs in a court-ordered conservatorship in 2008. The order was originally granted after the star was put in hospital amid concerns over her mental health.
