Finally, Britney Spears is free from her conservatorship. How’s that for feeling stronger than yesterday?
After 13 years of a legal conservatorship to her father, the Pop Princess has been set free, a California court has decided.
Hang on, lemme just hear that baby one more time. Our girl is free, babyyy.
“The court finds and determines that the conservatorship of the person and the Estate of Britney Jean Spears is no longer required,” Judge Brenda Penny said in court via Variety.
Side note: thanks Brenda, love your work xoxo.
According to the outlet, the hearing on November 12 was “brief” and all parties agreed to terminate Spears’ conservatorship.
Spears’ lawyer Mathew Rosengart made her case by reading out his client’s testimony that she originally delivered in June. Then, he reminded the court that “The record is clear. The time has come today.”
“What’s next for Britney, and this is the first time this could be said for about a decade, is up to one person: Britney,” Rosengart told reporters after the conservatorship was nuked.

“I think I’m gonna cry the rest of the day. Best day ever… praise the Lord… can I get an Amen?”

Asghari also shared a simple IG tile of the word “FREEDOM”, reminding fans that “history was made today.”
“Britney is free,” he wrote in the caption.
Its times like this I think fondly of a verse from ‘I’m Not a Girl, Not Yet A Woman’: “There is no need to protect me. It’s time that I learn to face up to this on my own. I’ve seen so much more than you know now so don’t tell me to shut my eyes.
“But if you look at me closely, you will see it in my eyes. This girl will always find her way.”
Stay tuned for more.
