*(Via Insider) – Britney Spears was freed from her conservatorship during a court hearing on Friday, where a Los Angeles judge decided to grant her request for the termination of the 13-year conservatorship.
“Effective today, the conservatorship of the person and estate of Britney Spears is terminated,” Judge Brenda Penny said during the hearing, which Insider attended.
Penny’s decision came after Spears and both her parents, Jamie and Lynne, filed petitions in support of the dissolution of the conservatorship. In September, Penny granted her request to choose her own counsel and subsequently approved that lawyer’s petition to have Jamie Spears immediately suspended from the conservatorship. During that hearing, Penny described Britney Spears’ conservatorship as “untenable.”
After Jamie Spears’ suspension in September, John Zabel, a California consultant chosen by Britney Spears’ team, was put in charge of the pop star’s financial estate. A woman named Jodi Montgomery remained the conservator tasked with overseeing her personal affairs.
