Britney Spears’ team have spoken out after a judge suspended the singer’s father from the legal conservatorship that Britney says has put her through years of abuse.

Jamie Spears was appointed Britney guardian in 2008, amid concerns over her mental health.

However Britney has long objected to the arrangement, and Spears’ treatment within it has sparked international outrage. Jamie Spears has denied any abuse.

However on Wednesday (US time), Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Brenda Penny said the “current situation is untenable.”

“It reflects a toxic environment which requires the suspension of James Spears,” she said.

The judge instead handed the role to an accountant appointed by Britney. The next hearing will take place on November 12.

Team Britney thanks fans for #FreeBritney campaign

Fans around the world have campaigned for the singer’s freedom through the #FreeBritney movement.

A crowd of fans gathered outside the Los Angeles court to support Britney Spears, closing down the street outside the courthouse with the rally.

Speaking outside court, the singer’s lawyer Matthew Rosengart described the battle to regain Britney’s freedom as “a lot of hard work”.

“It’s been intense. I’m proud, Britney’s proud,” he said.

“I think the support of the #FreeBritney movement has been instrumental.

“To the extent that it allowed my firm to carry the ball across the finish line, I thank them as well.”

Shortly after the ruling, Britney shared a video to Instagram of herself flying a plane, describing herself as “on cloud 9”.

“First time flying a plane and first time in a prop plane! Geez I was scared!” she wrote.

“Bringing the ship home … Stay classy, beautiful people!”

Britney’s fiance Sam Asghari wrote on his Instagram Stories, “Free Britney! Congratulations!”

Britney “burst into tears” of joy after hearing the judge’s decision, according to Page Six.

“For the longest time, she had begun to think that she would never see the day that her father’s domineering control over every single aspect of her life would end, but it finally happened,” a source said.

“She’s in shock and at a loss for words but literally jumping for joy.

“She hasn’t felt joy like this in 13 years.”

Britney Spears made allegations of conservatorship abuse in court in June

Britney Spears has strongly objected to the conservatorship for years. However the singer spoke publicly for the first time in court in June.

Speaking for 24 minutes, Britney called her father an “abusive” conservator and made several shocking accusations against him.

She claimed Jamie forced her to tour in 2018 and sent her to a mental health facility against her will in 2019.

She also claimed her conservators would not allow her to have her IUD contraceptive device removed.

Britney claimed she was put on medication “out of nowhere” that was so strong she “couldn’t even have a conversation” with her parents.

“[Jamie] loved the control he had over me, one hundred thousand percent,” Britney said.

“I’ve lied and told the whole world I’m OK and happy. I’ve been in denial, I’ve been in shock.

“I am traumatised. I can’t sleep, I’m depressed, I cry every day.”

“But now I’m telling you the truth, I’m not happy. I can’t sleep. I’m so angry it’s insane… I cry everyday.

“I shouldn’t be in a conservatorship if I can work and provide money and work for myself and pay other people. It makes no sense.

“I truly believe this conservatorship is abusive.

“It’s my wish and my dream for this to end.”
