"Best Day Ever," says Britney Spears as US court ends guardianship
New Delhi : A Los Angeles court has ended the controversial legal guardianship that had been controlling the life of pop star Britney Spears for the past 13 years. She has now gained back all freedom rights along with control of a multi-million-dollar estate.
"Best day ever... praise the Lord... can I get an Amen," wrote Spears on Instagram, using the hashtag "#FreedBritney."
The formal end to the guardianship comes after her father Jamie Spears was removed from his position in charge of her finances and estate at a hearing in September.
Both sides reiterated their support for swiftly ending the guardianship at the start of Friday's brief hearing.
"Effective today... the conservatorship of the person and estate of Britney Jean Spears is hereby terminated. And that is the order of the court," said Judge Brenda Penny.
