"Best day ever": Britney Spears is free as conservatorship ends

Nov 12 2021, 11:59 pm

After living under a controlling conservatorship for 13 years, Britney Spears is finally free.

The 39-year-old star’s $60 million estate and personal affairs are back in her own hands after the court-ordered arrangement was terminated by an LA County Superior Court judge on Friday, November 12.

Judge Brenda Penny said in court that “the conservatorship of the person and estate of Britney Jean Spears is hereby terminated.”

Spears’ unusual conservatorship drew a lot of attention, both from her legions of fans crying #FreeBritney for years and also from documentary film makers.

Back in June, Spears spoke out against the “traumatizing” conservatorship in court. Now, after many court dates, hearings, and a legal battle with her father, the conservatorship is officially over.

Spears was not in-person to hear the news, but hundreds of her fans were, and they had a huge celebration.

Now that they’ve #FreedBritney, there’s no telling what the star will do next.
