On November 12 2021, Britney Spears became free. 13 years ago in 2008 Britney Spears’ dad legally received control of his daughter’s life. On November 12, 2021, a judge declared that she was going to publicly denounced that it is over.

“The conservatorship of the person and estate of Britney Jean Spears is no longer required,” Judge Brenda Penny said. 

The reason why she was under conservatorship at first was because in  2008 she had a public breakdown. Fans were shocked and then the conservatorship was granted.

Britney’s father, Jamie Spears agreed to back down in August 2021 after Britney’s emotional plea to a judge. She also complained of being forced on birth control despite wanting more children, but her fathers attorney denied the truth of that statement.  She first spoke about this subject in court in June. 

Since she is now free she can make her own decisions such as medication, signing her own contracts and manage her money however she wants.

Britney fans are so happy about this situation.

“Confetti cannons going off as Britney supporters say she’s freed from her conservatorship #FreeBritney,” Kat Tenbarge tweeted.

 Paper magazine also tweeted, “BREAKING: BRITNEY IS FREE. CONSERVATORSHIP? TERMINATED. LET’S CELEBRATE THAT!”
