Freedom for Britney Spears, as Father Jamie Spears is suspended from her Conservatorship

Britney Spears faced victory in court yesterday (September 29). After 13 years, her father has finally been suspended as her Conservator, meaning she is one huge step closer to freedom.

The pop star has been living under conservatorship since 2008 which means her father and companies have had control over her life, from her lifestyle to relationships and her finances.

The Los Angeles court determined that Jamie Spears, Britney’s father is to be suspended immediately from Spears’ conservatorship and that the Conservator of the Estate is now John Zabel, temporary Conservator who has been appointed to by Britney and her lawyer Mathew Rosengart.

It’s quite possibly the best decision the court could make, as now Britney’s new lawyer Mathew Rosengart will have access to all files from the Conservatorship and can look into all of the allegations of alleged money outgoings by her father, her family and other companies.

If the conservatorship was terminated yesterday, it would’ve been much more difficult for Britney and her lawyer to access these files. This is why when requested in court, they wanted her father suspended, rather than the whole conservatorship to be ended.

Spears celebrated her recent victory in court, by saying she is “living on cloud 9 right now”.

Since 2019, the #FreeBritney movement gained momentum after Britney took a hiatus from Instagram for four months, after it was announced the Las Vegas residency ‘Domination’ was not going to take place.

Fans began to realise there were sinister actions taking place, which later sadly turned out to be true in Spears’ testimony in Court on June 23, 2021. Here is where she bravely spoke out about being held involuntarily at a rehab programme, because she objected to performing a dance move and wanted a break from performing. She spoke out for 20 minutes about what has happened to her during the time under this conservatorship.

In early 2021, the documentary “Framing Britney Spears” sped up the process of the public realising the control her father and others had on her life. But this mainly came from the impact the #FreeBritney movement had, becoming viral in 2019 and frequently in 2020 and 2021.

The fan base had been notably labelled as “conspiracy theorists” by her Father and media outlets, but it was confirmed in Britney’s shocking testimony, that it was in fact true and she was in an “abusive conservatorship”.

An expected court day is to take place in 30-45, with the November 12 date being brought up frequently as the day which termination will be on the table.
