Britney Spears released from 13-year conservatorship
“I think I’m gonna cry,” she told her 35 million Instagram followers.
Fans had gathered outside the LA court to support Spears, who had described the guardianship as abusive.
Her father Jamie earlier said it was “necessary”, but agreed it was time for her “to re-take control of her life”.

On Friday, Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Brenda Penny ruled in favour of the singer’s request to end it, which was not opposed by any of the parties involved.
As part of the ruling, Judge Penny said an accountant who served as a temporary conservator should retain some powers to settle ongoing financial issues.
Friends were also jubilant following the decision.
In a court appearance in June, the star asked the judge to end the “abusive” arrangement and said she was “traumatised”.
