Britney Spears’ Conservatorship Terminated After 13 Years


Los Angeles Times

Britney Spears fans celebrating following the news of the termination of the pop star’s conservatorship.

After over a decade, pop star Britney Spears has finally been freed from her conservatorship.

On Friday, November 12, Los Angeles County Judge Brenda Penny terminated the conservatorship stating that it’s no longer required.

Spears has been stuck in this conservatorship for the past fourteen years; her finances, estate, and entire life were being controlled by her father, Jamie Spears, who was officially suspended as her conservator back in September.

Even though she can finally be her own person, the battle between Britney and her father is far from over.

Mathew Rosengart, the lawyer who’s been representing Britney for the past few months, filed a request to depose Jamie and asked for materials that may be related to the alleged surveillance of Britney, which was reported in a September documentary from the New York Times. He also hired accountants to look at how Jamie had been spending his daughter’s money throughout the conservatorship.

This case has shed the light on conservatorship and how it may lead to abuse, especially when targeted against the elderly and individuals with disabilities since they’re the ones who usually are affected by conservatorship the most.

Nonetheless, Britney, who was not present at the hearing, posted to Twitter and Instagram stating, “I think I’m gonna cry for the rest of the day !!!! Best day ever.”
