American pop star Britney Spears is finally free! On Friday, a Los Angeles judge ended the conservatorship that had a firm grip over Britney Spears’ life and money for close to 14 years.
The decision came after a five-month legal battle that saw Spears publicly demand the end of the conservatorship, hire her own attorney for fighting the same, have her father terminated from as an authoritative figure, and now winning the legal battle to freedom.
After the squashing of the conservatorship, Britney can make her own medical, financial and personal decisions without having to seek permission for the first time since 2008.
As per media predictions, this historic decision by Superior Court Judge Brenda Penny was expected as there was hardly any room for this legal feud to drag on. But, Judge Penny has reportedly been dropping no clear indications as to what the end result would be.
The 39-year-old ‘Piece of Me’ singer, who is cloud nine now, was quick to react to Friday’s hearing. Sharing a video of her fans celebrating the new victory, she wrote, ”Good God I love my fans so much it’s crazy 🥺❤️ !!! I think I’m gonna cry the rest of the day !!!! Best day ever … praise the Lord … can I get an Amen ???? #FreedBritney ”.
Her Finance Sam Asghari also celebrated Friday’s ruling and immediately posted a graphic reading “FREEDOM” on Instagram. Asghari wrote in the caption: “History was made today. Britney is Free!,” he ended the message with a single red heart emoji.
“It was a monumental day for Britney Spears,” the pop star`s attorney, Mathew Rosengart, said outside the courthouse. He thanked the #FreeBritney movement which he said had been essential to ending the legal arrangement.
