Octavia Spencer apologised to Britney Spears and her fiance Sam Asghari after she made a prenup joke on Instagram after they got engaged.
After Spears posted the engagement news on her Instagram account on Sunday, Spencer commented below, "Make him sign a prenup."
The news comes days after her father filed to end the court conservatorship that has controlled the singer’s life and money for 13 years.
Britney's fans flooded social media with congratulatory messages after Sam posted a picture of a diamond ring with the inscription 'lioness', on his Instagram Story.
Now in a petition filed with probate judge Brenda Penny on Tuesday, Jamie thinks that his daughter "should get that chance" to control her own affairs.
The singer had been named a suspect in a battery investigation after allegedly striking a housekeeper during a dispute while in her home in Thousand Oaks on August 16.
Jamie Spears is allegedly seeking to compel Britney's estate to pay USD 1.3 million in attorneys' fees, USD 500,000 to Spears' former management company, as well as additional payments to himself.
Last week, after more than a decade of legal strife, Britney's father, Jamie P. Spears, agreed to step down as her conservator once a proper plan is in place.
James Spears filed legal documents saying that while there are no grounds for his removal, he will step down after several lingering issues are resolved.
After the judge's decision, Britney took to Instagram and shared a few posts which hinted at the singer's disappointment over the whole scenario.
Mathew Rosengart, who is Spears' attorney, filed an ex parte application on Thursday, requesting that the upcoming September 29 hearing for her conservatorship case be moved to later this month.
Matthew Rosengart proposed that James Spears be replaced as conservator of Britney's estate, which documents say equates to $2.7 million in cash and more than $57 million in assets.
For weeks, the pop superstar has been pleading with a judge in Los Angeles to free her from the years-long conservatorship largely governed by her father.
Britney Spears described being denied things as basic as coffee, her driver's license and her "hair vitamins" by the conservatorship. "If this is not abuse, I don't know what is," Spears said.
Her 20-minute emotional and almost breathless monologue ramped up worldwide interest in a case that was already the subject of a frenzied #FreeBritney campaign by her adoring fans.
