Britney Spears' conservatorship ENDS after 13 years as judge rules in favor of iconic pop star
BRITNEY Spears's conservatorship has finally ended after 13 years without requiring any further mental evaluation as Judge Brenda Penny ruled in favor of the pop star.
Back in September, Britney's father, Jamie, was removed as conservator after he filed to step down from the position.
On Friday, Judge Penny ruled that Britney's conservatorship be terminated, giving the hitmaker control of her life for the first time since before 2008.
Britney's lawyer, Matt Rosengart, began the hearing quoting Britney's June testimony in which she said, "I just want my life back."
The judge then asked all the lawyers in court if they had any objections, which all said no.
A member of Britney's legal team exclusively told The Sun ahead of the hearing: "Britney and Mathew fully believe that if all goes according to plan, she will be a free woman by the end of the day.
"She has been emotional all week and was crying last night both happy tears and tears of joy. I think she doesn’t fully believe it’s coming to an end yet after so many years of pushing and fighting.
They added, "She keeps saying “I can’t believe it’s really happening” and I don’t think it will sink in until after the hearing.”
The source added that Britney is feeling ready for justice after spending 13 years of her life under the extremely restrictive conservatorship.
“She spent years afraid of her father but she’s not afraid anymore. She’s confident and ready for vengeance and with her new team around her, that’s exactly what she is going to get." they told The Sun.
"This is only the beginning of justice for her and only the beginning of investigations into anyone who has wronged her over the years.”
Prior to the decision, the 39-year-old had been quite open on her Instagram, even sharing with fans in a now-deleted post: "This week is gonna be very interesting for me!
"I haven't prayed for something more in my life."
It has been a longtime coming for the entertainer, as a few months ago the court agreed to her dad's filing to remove him from the star's conservatorship.
Judge Penny said at the time: "Based on what I read in the filings, and I read everything. I do believe the suspension of Jamie Spears is in the best interest of Britney Spears.
"The current situation is unattainable. The court finds the toxic environment Jamie Spears has created needs to be removed today."
Before the judge's statement, Britney's lawyer Mathew S. Rosengart had slammed Jamie, 69, as a "toxic, abusive alcoholic" in court.
All this comes after the Hulu documentary titled Framing Britney Spears was released earlier this year, which shocked fans and led to various celebrities chiming in, including her ex Justin Timberlake.

It also reignited the Free Britney campaign, with rallies being held in support of the singer.
Britney would then make shocking allegations during a court hearing in June, claiming due to the conservatorship she was not allowed to get married and was forced to get an IUD she cannot take out to have another baby.
More documentaries would follow, including Netflix's Britney vs Spears.
Britney has made various changes in her life since, most notably becoming engaged with Sam Asghari, 27.
This will be Britney's third marriage, as her first husband was Jason Alexander, who she was married to for 55 hours.
Britney also tied the knot with Kevin Federline in 2004, parting ways in 2007 – the exes share sons Sean, 16, and Jayden, 15.
In 2020, the performer's youngest child hit out at his grandfather Jamie and said "he can go die."
He praised his father Kevin and also said Britney's boyfriend Sam was “nice” and called him a “really good dude.”
It came after Jamie was accused of an "inappropriate physical altercation" after reportedly grabbing Sean, who was 13 at the time.
The incident happened in 2019 when the boys were visiting Jamie at his Westlake Village residence.
During an argument Jamie reportedly broke down a door to get to Sean and shook him violently.
Criminal charges of child abuse against Jamie were dropped but a restraining order was upheld restricting Jamie's contact with the boys.
