“The conservatorship of Britney Spears’ person and estate is hereby terminated as of today. And that is the court’s decision “Judge Brenda Penny opined.
A judge in L.A on Friday ended the contentious guardianship that had ruled Britney Spears’ life for the previous 13 years, restoring her independence as well as ownership of a multimillion-dollar mansion.
The decision, which was greeted with loud shouts and showers of pink confetti by Spears’ supporters outside the downtown courthouse, puts an end to a conservatorship long handled by her father and characterized as oppressive by the “Toxic” singer.
The guardianship came to an end after Jamie Spears, the pop princess’s father was removed from his position as her financial and estate director at a hearing in September.
At the beginning of Friday’s brief session, both sides restated their support for removing the guardianship as soon as possible.
“The conservatorship of Britney Jean Spears’ person and the estate is hereby ended as of today. And that is the court’s decision “Judge Brenda Penny said.
Spears and her millions of global fans have been advocating for years to end a conservatorship that began after her highly public 2007 breakdown when she attacked a paparazzo’s car at a gas station.
On the grounds that “this was a voluntary conservatorship” and “all parties agree,” Judge Penny granted Spears’ request for the arrangement to cease without the requirement for a mental evaluation.
“The court notices and decides that the conservatorship of Britney Jean Spears’ person and the estate is no longer necessary,” she wrote.
Fans outside the courthouse, who had been advocating for years for the conservatorship to end, could barely control their pleasure and relief.
Danielle Kushner, 30, said, “She believed no one would believe her… she’s just a completely capable human being.”
“We all feel like she’s a friend, and we’ve tried to talk to her but haven’t been able to!”
