Britney Spears and Iggy Azalea perform at the 2015 Billboard Music Awards on May 15, 2015 in Las Vegas, Nevada. The Billboard Awards will air on May 17, 2015.

Britney Spears is thanking Iggy Azalea for her continued support now that her conservatorship under father Jamie Spears is slowly coming to an end. On Wednesday (Sept. 8), the "Toxic" singer posted a throwback shot of her and Azalea performing their song "Pretty Girls" at the 2015 Billboard Music Awards along with some positive words about the rapper.

"Me and Iggy on stage!!! It was so much fun working with such a strong, bada-- woman like her," Spears captioned the post, which featured them embracing each other on stage during the performance. "I haven’t met her new baby but if she’s reading this God bless you and thank you for all your kind words!!!! Pssss although the name of the song is 'Pretty Girls' I think the concept is more like revenge of the NERDS!!!!"

The "Fancy" rapper expressed her appreciation and affection for Spears in the post's comments. "I absolutely adore you more than words," responded Azalea. "Loving you always you brilliant, too-genius-for this-world-to-understand, kind hearted, gracious & beautifully ethereal being. We are definitely two big ole goofballs in the best way possible."

Spears' thank you note to Azalea comes after the pop star's father, Jamie Spears, filed a petition Sept. 7 to end her 13-year conservatorship. Azalea had previously condemned the restrictive conservatorship in a #FreeBritney post to her Twitter account on June 30. The post detailed an alleged an interaction that Azalea had with Jamie during the performers' 2015 BBMAs performance, where she also claimed she "personally witnessed" some of Jamie's behaviors regarding Britney.

"During the time we worked together in 2015, I personally witnessed the same behavior Britney detailed in regards to her father last week and I just want to back her up & tell the world that: She is not exaggerating or lying," Azalea claimed in the post. "Her father conveniently waited until literally moments before our BMAs performance when I was backstage in the dressing room and told me if I did not sign an NDA he would not allow me on stage....the way he went about getting me to sign a contract, sounded similar to the tactics Britney spoke about last week in regards to her Las Vegas show."
