Arguably the biggest news of the summer regarding Britney Spears‘s conservatorship arrived on September 30th. For the first time since 2008, Britney’s father Jamie Spears will no longer be heading his daughter’s conservatorship. Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Brenda Penny suspended Jamie Spears from Britney Spears’s conservatorship on Wednesday. This is a significant win for Britney’s camp, as not only did her fans, but her attorney, and she herself celebrated the ruling by the US Court.
Jamie Spears finally suspended from Britney Spears’s conservatorship
Jamie Spears has controlled Britney’s life and money since 2008, ever since the court-mandated conservatorship began. But, Judge Penny on Wednesday agreed to the petition filed by Britney Spears’s attorney Mathew Rosengart that called for Jamie Spears to resign from his position. This move is a significant win for Britney’s camp, as the pop star has revealed staggering and troubling details of her conservatorship in court hearings a few months ago.
Since 2008, Jamie Spears has been controlling Britney’s entire estate and even her personal life at the micro-level. Since then, he has been a symbol of the oppression that Britney Spears has faced since the conservatorship began. And that is why, Britney’s lawyer quite gleefully announced his suspension to the public, saying:
I’m so pleased and proud to say Jamie Spears is no longer a conservator. Jamie Spears has been suspended and he will formally be removed shortly. Jamie Spears and others are going to face even more serious ramifications.
Previously, Jamie Spears had actually filed a petition to end the conservatorship altogether. But, Britney and her lawyer filed for the removal of her father specifically. This petition by Rosengart and Britney signified the toxicity that her father exhibited throughout this conservatorship. With this judgment, Britney can finally take a sigh of relief and know that her side of the story was believed by not only her fans but the court as well.
Fans and Britney rejoice as the news becomes public
And as soon as the news broke out, a vast majority of the public erupted in pandemonium. Twitter and even Britney fans outside of the courthouse were rejoicing over the decision. This was considered as a huge win for the ‘Free Britney’ campaign, which had been trending on social media for months to free Britney Spears from her brutal conservatorship.
However, fans were not the only ones who were jovial. Britney Spears herself was ecstatic, as Page Six reported that the Toxic and Baby One More Time singer was crying with joy. Their source told them:
Britney burst into tears upon hearing the judge’s decision. For the longest time, she had begun to think that she would never see the day that her father’s domineering control over every single aspect of her life would end, but it finally happened. She’s in shock and at a loss for words but literally jumping for joy. She hasn’t felt joy like this in 13 years.
It took them 13 years, but the system finally realized that what Britney was going through was indeed toxic. We hope the court rules the entire conservatorship void as well.
