LYNNE Spears has finally broken her silence as her daughter and ex-husband face off over "cruel" conservatorship battle.
The author previously issued a statement to support her daughter's right to hire her own lawyer for the case.
Lynne, 66, took to Instagram on Wednesday night to share a message of "light and darkness" amidst court proceedings dictating her daughter's freedom.
The mother of three's blurry post read: "The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it."
The Mississippi native's youngest daughter Jamie Lynn, 30, also shared a message of "hope" last night, after Britney's minor victory in her looming case.
"One you choose hope, anything's possible," she posted, quoting Christopher Reeve.
A Win for Britney
Britney, 39, was granted the right to hire her own lawyer during Wednesday's court hearing, marking a win for the pop star in her journey towards freedom.
The Sun can confirm that the judge has allowed the hiring of Matthew S. Rosengart, who was a former federal prosecutor.
Despite previous speculation that the singer would not be speaking in Wednesday's court appearance, she made a statement against her father who she says should be charged for "abuse."
"I’ve always been scared of my dad. I was scared he would show up drunk. I counted and in one week alone.

"I was abandoned 63 times by all of my family members as I sat in the trailer and watched them leave from the window," she confessed.
"My team took everything from me. They even took my hair vitamins away. That’s not abuse, it’s f***ing cruel," the child star ranted.
"I still can’t even drink coffee. I’m not sure how long it takes to get a restraining order but I want to file for abuse and an investigation against my dad. He knocked down a door and shook my son."
Britney explained that although she would be fine if her current co-conservator Jodi Montgomery should remain, she believes her father James Spears, 69, should be removed immediately.
“My dad needs to be removed. He needs to be removed today.
"I’m fine with Jodi helping me to get more confidence and get out to the real world but I need my dad gone."
Though Britney appeared in court virtually yesterday, her new attorney Matthew was present for the proceedings.
He told the courtroom: "My firm has a very substantial trust and estate department. To this case, I will bring not only my legal expertise but my team of lawyers who will work on this case. My firm is coast to coast.”
Judge Penny contributed: “I am going to accept the resignation of Bessamar, your petition is granted for Bessamar to no longer be involved.”
Matthew then replied: “We agree with 50% of the petition from the ACLU. What part we agree with is Ms. Spears should select her own counsel. Her honest, humane, decent, and powerful statement last month makes it clear she has more than enough clarity to pick her own attorney.”
Britney then revealed her decision to choose Matthew, saying: “Yes, I am confident in him. I have spoken to him on the phone several times and met him in person."
Britney and her legal team will return to court on September 29th as they continue to fight the "abusive" conservatorship that is currently in place.
