Britney Spears Free From Conservatorship After More Than 13 Years

After more than 14 years of living under a conservatorship, Britney Spears is finally free.

As the New York Times reports, at a hearing Friday afternoon in Los Angeles Superior Court, Judge Brenda Penny said the conservatorship that has long overseen the singer’s life and finances should be terminated effective today. “The conservatorship of the person and estate of Britney Jean Spears is no longer required,” Penny stated.

Britney’s fiance, Sam Asghari, celebrated the hearing’s outcome on Instagram on Friday, posting a pink square with the word “Freedom.” 

“History was made today,” Asghari wrote in the caption. “Britney is Free!”
