Pop star Britney Spears, 39, shared this Friday (12) on Instagram a video of fans celebrating the end of guardianship of father James P. Spears, 69, after 13 years of control over his life, career and finances.
The singer thanked fans for helping to free her with the #FreeBritney movement. “My God, I love my fans so much it’s crazy!!! I think I’ll cry the rest of the day!!!! Best day ever… praise the Lord”, wrote the singer in her first post on the network after Judge Brenda Penny’s decision.
The victory was not unexpected, following the removal of Britney’s father, Jamie Spears, from his role as a Conservative in late September. The judge called the arrangement “unsustainable” and “toxic”.
At that time, the judge agreed to allow certified accountant John Zabel to assume the role of Spears’ conservator; it is not known what its role will be in the future in light of the termination of the agreement.
Efforts to free Spears from guardianship – which was implemented in 2008 after her widely publicized collapse – have increased dramatically this year, aided by a bombastic speech Spears made to court in June and a new lawyer, Matthew Rosengart, who took over in July.
“I lied and told the whole world that I’m fine and I’m happy. It’s a lie,” Spears said during the hearing in June, in which she also criticized her father.
This has also been a busy period in Spears’ personal life as well. In September, she became engaged to her boyfriend Sam Asghari, and the couple were seen visiting an upscale property in the Hidden Hills area of Los Angeles.
