Judge ends Britney Spears' conservatorship after 13 years

Britney Spears has been freed from her conservatorship, as an L.A. judge on Friday granted the petition to terminate the 13-year arrangement during a court hearing that lasted less than 30 minutes.

L.A. County Superior Court, Judge Brenda Penny legally ended an arrangement that was imposed in 2008 following a string of erratic behavior and public incidents by the superstar singer.

More from Billboard:

The move was largely expected after Spears’ father Jamie Spears – who controlled the conservatorship for years – caved to pressure from fans, activists, and Britney herself to end the arrangement. He was suspended in September and earlier this month called for an “unconditional” end to the setup.

After Britney Spears’ 13-year conservatorship was terminated by a Los Angeles Superior Court judge on Friday (Nov. 12), the pop superstar’s fiancé Sam Asghari took to Instagram to celebrate the ruling.

Alongside a graphic emblazoned with the word “FREEDOM,” Asghari wrote in an Instagram caption: “History was made today. Britney is Free!” He ended the message with a single red heart emoji.
