Britney Spears’ Conservatorship Dissolved By Los Angeles Court After 13 Years

Story Highlights
  • Britney Spears' controversial guardianship has been terminated.
  • It has controlled her life for the past 13 years by her father which was ‘toxic’.
  • The lawyer termed the Britney Spears conservatorship 'a Kafkaesque nightmare.'

After 13 years, American singer, songwriter, and dancer, Britney Spears is finally free from a court-ordered conservatorship that existed in her life to oversee her financial status and career. The announcement came after a Friday judgment by Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Brenda Penny. As per Variety, Judge Penny said, “The court finds and determines that the conservatorship of the person and the Estate of Britney Jean Spears is no longer required.”

Currently, the pop star’s previous financial issues would be managed by a new estate conservator, according to the judge. Mathew Rosengart, who is the singer’s attorney, opened his remarks to the judge by presenting from Spears’s June evidence, in which she stated her desire for the conservatorship to terminate without psychiatric assessment. Furthermore, Rosengart addressed a swarm of admirers who were present outside the LA courthouse in California and stated that the Friday ruling is something to rejoice over. The lawyer termed the Britney Spears conservatorship ‘a Kafkaesque nightmare.’

Rosengart added that the court has agreed to Spears’ demand that she not be subjected to a psychiatric evaluation, which is customary in such instances. Britney Spears has been under her father Jamie Spears’ conservatorship since 2008. The conservatorship barred Britney from making any decisions in life or spending her multimillion-dollar assets. Her father held a lot of control in her life and even restricted her from meeting her sons. However, owing to his own health difficulties, he temporarily stood down as supervisor of her in 2019. Britney and her lawyer issued a formal court complaint earlier this year to have Jamie removed as conservator of Britney’s estate.
