As Britney Spears grapples with the loss of her unborn child, she's sharing a life lesson she learned from an unlikely person — her dad.
"My father had taught me to be nice first, because you can always be mean later, but once you've been mean to someone, they won't believe the nice anymore," the message posted to her Instagram page on Wednesday, May 18, read. "So be nice, be nice, until it's time to stop being nice, then destroy them."
Though it's unclear whether Jamie Spears actually gave her this piece of advice or she learned to be kind before taking someone down from her conservatorship battle with her estranged dad, Spears is certainly sending a message.
Having not captioned the post, Britney's fans took to the comment section to weigh in on her message, with one writing: "Your father should be in jail ❤️," and another noting, "we hate ur dad."
A third chimed in: "Ok time to live your life your way and kill ‘em’ with kindness 👏."

Britney has been very vocal about her thoughts on her famous family ever since her near-14-year-long conservatorship was terminated in November 2021, only months after Jamie was suspended as her conservator. He has since been accused of eavesdropping on the singer's private conversations and even bugging her bedroom and devices.
If her social media rants about the 68-year-old are any indication of the built-up resentment Britney has towards her dad, then it's safe to assume her upcoming memoir will be a must-read.
And while she has been living her best life free from the constraints of the legal binding, Britney and her fiancé, Sam Asghari, announced they tragically lost their unborn child after the songstress had a miscarriage.
The lovebirds — who got engaged in September 2021 — revealed they were expecting their first child together, which would've made the baby Britney's third kid, as she shares two sons with ex-husband Kevin Federline, in April and announced the loss of their miracle baby on Saturday, May 14.
"It is with our deepest sadness we have to announce that we have lost our miracle baby early in the pregnancy," the couple penned in a joint statement shared to social media. "This is a devastating time for any parent."
Despite the heartbreaking loss, Britney and Sam teased they haven't given up on eventually welcoming their own bundle of joy. "We will continue trying to expand our beautiful family. We are grateful for all of your support. We kindly ask for privacy during this difficult moment," their statement concluded.
