After 13 long and arduous years, Britney Spears is finally free. A judge in Los Angeles finally ended her repressive conservatorship on Friday, which was supervised by her father Jamie Spears since 2008 through a legal arrangement by the court. Now, after 13 years and lengthy court battles, her conservatorship has finally been terminated, and her fans and supporters of the Free Britney Campaign couldn’t be happier.

The Baby One More Time and Toxic singer described the termination of her conservatorship as “the best day ever,” as she told “I think I’m gonna cry” to her over 35 million followers on Instagram. The conservatorship had controlled several aspects of her life, including controlling her estate, finances, career decisions, as well as personal matters and not giving her any privacy. She even had to take permission from her conservators to meet her teenage sons or to remarry or not.

However, on Friday, Britney Spears finally regained control over her life as an LA Court ruled in her favor to end the conservatorship. None of the parties involved objected to the decision. In the past, her father Jamie Spears had said through his representative that the conservatorship was necessary, saying:

Her life was in shambles and she was in physical, emotional, mental and financial distress.

However, he ultimately agreed that it was time for Britney Spears to “re-take control of her life”. Understandably, all her fans were extremely jovial over the court ruling. There were several fans outside the court, where Britney’s lawyer Mathew Rosengart praised the singer’s “courage”. He further said that this ruling will help shed “light on conservatorships from California to New York”.

Moreover, Britney Spears also said that she hasn’t “prayed for something more in my life”. However, she also admitted that her Instagram tirades went over the line sometimes. But considering the condition she was in, she was completely justified to do so, saying:

I know I’ve said some things on my Insta out of anger and I’m sorry but I’m only human… and I believe you’d feel the same way if you were me!

Many of her fans also congratulated Britney on social media, the most notable of which were Paris Hilton and Lady Gaga. They both tweeted, congratulating her and admiring her for her resilience and strength.

Even Netflix joined in on the hype and said “Britney Spears deserves the world!”

Just how bad was Britney’s conservatorship?

The tide turned for the conservatorship after Britney Spears’s bombshell court hearing in June of this year, in which she revealed just how abusive and controlling the legal arrangement was. Since then, several celebrities, including her ex-boyfriend Justin Timberlake, spoke out in support of her on social media, calling for an end to her conservatorship. Afterward, there were several court battles with many of her legal moves being denied by the court. But, more horrifying details about the conservatorship kept on emerging. In one report, it was revealed that Britney’s bedroom, iPad, iPhone, and all other devices were bugged. Eventually, her father had to resign as he was largely to blame for the abusive conditions of the conservatorship. Now, the 39-year-old has finally regained agency over her life.

Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Brenda Penny, however, also said that an accountant who served as a temporary conservator will retain some powers to handle some ongoing financial matters.
