“Do we dare forget the Diane Sawyer interview in my apartment almost 20 years ago?” Britney Spears captioned the post. “What was with the ‘You’re in the wrong’ approach?? Geeze… and making me cry???”

She went on, “Seriously though… I lived in my apartment for a year and never spoke to anyone… my manager put that woman in my home and made me talk to her on national television and she asked if I had a shopping problem!!! when did I have a shopping problem?”

Britney Spears also talked about how she was “in shock” after her breakup from Justin Timberlake in 2002 and how she “never spoke to anyone for a very long time.”

“Something I never shared when I had that break up years ago was that I couldn’t talk afterward. I was in shock… pretty lame of my dad and three men to show up at my door when I could hardly speak… two days later they put Diane Sawyer in my living room… they forced me to talk!” she added.

Jamie Spears’ lawyer, Alex Weingarten, rejected Jamie’s role in the interview in a statement to PEOPLE, claiming he was “completely uninvolved” in its planning.

The statement read as follows: “Mr. Spears has no idea what Ms. Spears is talking about. Jamie never set up any interview with Diane Sawyer and was not present for any such interview. He had nothing to do with Britney’s career at this point and was completely uninvolved in this interview. Jamie loves Britney very much, wishes Britney nothing but the best and hopes that she continues to seek the help that she needs to stay safe and healthy.”

Spears admitted that she was “a baby” at the time, but that she has since learned to defend herself.

In response to one of Diane Sawyer’s interview questions, Britney Spears wrote, “She said ‘a woman or a girl’ … I would like to say now, ‘Ma’am I’m a catholic s**t!!!” On being asked about her “shopping problem,” Spears added that she could spend as much money as she wanted.

She wrote of the ABC journalist, “She can kiss my white a**.”
