It’s a big day for Britney Spears and those close to her as the singer finally won the major conservatorship battle as the singer’s father was removed as her conservator after 13 years. The singer’s father was removed from his controversial role as her conservator on Wednesday by a Los Angeles judge. For the Free Britney movement, it was a huge milestone considering fans have been calling for the singer’s conservatorship to end but mainly hoped for her father’s removal as her guardian.
Since 2008, Spears was placed under a controversial legal arrangement that the 39-year-old US singer has slammed as “abusive” and controlling during her testimony regarding the same in July. Spears’ lawyers had demanded that the conservatorship be scrapped with Jamie Spears’ immediate removal.
Several documentaries have also claimed that Spears’ father took control of the singer’s life by bugging her phone calls, restricting her interactions with close ones and also made use of her estate for his own good. With Spears’ finally being declared free from her father’s control, not only fans but also those close to her and her celebrity friends have reacted to the same. The first to lead in applauding the verdict was singer Cher who cheered for Britney’s freedom in her tweet. Also, Bette Midler, Tayshia Adams and more reacted to the news.
Britney Spears’ fiance Sam Asghari also shared a post celebrating Jamie Spears’ removal as he lauded his “lioness.”
