On Friday, during a hearing of the conservatorship of Britney Spears, Judge Brenda Penny terminated the conservatorship arrangement that was ordered by the court 13 years ago. She said that the court found “that the conservatorship of the person and the estate of Britney Jean Spears” was “no longer required.”
Neither Britney Spears nor her father James “Jamie” Spears were present at the court. Spears’ attorney Matthew Rosengart told the court that a “safety net” was in place that would take care of her finances as well as her personal care.
Lawyer Rosengart also thanked Judge Penny of the Los Angeles County Superior Court. Britney’s assets will be transferred to the singer’s trust. Earlier, it was under a temporary conservator. The judge also said that a medical evaluation was not required. Neither side raised any objections to the ruling. The crowd outside the courthouse cheered, sang and danced; after the ruling was pronounced.
On Thursday, in an Instagram post, the Grammy award winner wore a “#Free Britney” shirt, with the tagline “It’s a human rights movement” before the hearing. Her fiancé Sam Asghari also wore a similar t-shirt with the same caption
A visibly emotional Britney Spears posted that she loved her fans so much that it was crazy. She said that she thought that she was going to cry for the rest of the day. On the Friday afternoon Instagram post, the pop star also wrote “Best day ever…praise the Lord…can I get an Amen????#Freed Britney.”
Britney Spears faced a long and difficult emotional, physical and financial battle as her father took over conservatorship of her personal and financial affairs that was worth $60 million. In June, in a strong outburst of emotion, she told Judge Penny that she wanted her “life back” and that it had been “13 years” and it was “enough.” Her recent lawyer as well as her fans who started the #FreeBritney movement helped her regain her life on Friday.
