Britney Spears 13 Years Conservatorship Brought To An End By An American Judge

Published

on

A Los Angeles judge has ruled that Britney Spears conservatorship should end after 13 years.

The pop singer has been under a compulsory conservatorship after losing her mind since 2008 following her mental health breakdown.

During a court hearing in Los Angeles Superior on Friday, Judge Brenda Penny made the historic ruling which delighted fans who have actively been campaigning for the singer’s freedom through the #FreeBritney

For the past 13 years, the singer’s father Jamie had managed Britney’s wellbeing and financial affairs along with a bank, but demands to change that peaked after the mother-of-two recently told a court that the conservatorship is ‘abusive’. 

Earlier this month, the pop star’s father, Jamie Spears, filed documents, requesting that a judge end Britney’s conservatorship immediately. In August, Jamie first announced he would be stepping aside from his role in the conservatorship, but the move was not immediate.

Jamie’s decision to step away from managing the conservatorship came after public interest in Spears’ situation piqued following the release of the New York Times Presents documentary, “Framing Britney Spears” on FX and Hulu in February 2021, and amid pressure from those involved in the “Free Britney” movement.

The ACLU also became involved in Britney’s case in July 2021, filing an amicus brief supporting the pop star’s wish to choose her own conservatorship attorney. She was later granted permission, and brought in Mathew Rosengart.

Rosengart petitioned the court in July to remove Jamie, and have a CPA appointed to handle the estate portion of Britney’s conservatorship. Jamie has been Britney’s estate conservator since 2008. He was, however, suspended as conservator in Sept. 2021, following a petition from the pop singer.

Britney personal conservator has been Jodi Montgomery, who was appointed by the court in 2019. Before that, Jamie Spears held that role, too.

The “Piece of Me” singer was placed under a conservatorship following a very public breakdown that saw her being placed twice on 5150 involuntary psychiatric holds in Los Angeles in Jan. 2008.
