Now that she’s free, Britney Spears plans to celebrate ‘for the next two months!’
Britney Spears is still toasting her newfound freedom.
The singer has been posting often on Instagram since a judge on Friday ended the conservatorship that had controlled her person and her estate for nearly 14 years. And on Monday she shared her joy, her party plans and more.
‘What an amazing weekend … I felt like I was on cloud 9 the whole time !!!,” Spears wrote in a caption on one of the 10 new posts that have gone up since Friday’s events in court. “I actually got my first glass of champagne at the most beautiful restaurant I’ve ever seen last night !!!! I’m celebrating my freedom and my B day for the next two months !!!!!!!!!!! I mean after 13 years … I think I’ve waited long ENOUGH !!!!”
She sprinkled emojis throughout.
After nearly 14 years, Britney Spears’ conservatorship is over, an L.A. judge rules, and the pop star and her devout fans are celebrating the big news.
Spears also expressed her gratitude for the many people who helped end her controversial conservatorship.
“I’m so happy my lawyer Mathew Rosengart came into my life when he did … he has truly turned my life around … I’m forever thankful for that !!!!,” she wrote. “What a sight seeing so many people celebrating my victory …. I love my fans so much … so thank you !!!!”
Spears’ fans who backed the #FreeBritney movement sang and danced in the street Friday outside Stanley Mosk Courthouse in downtown L.A., where in a hearing that lasted only about a half hour Judge Brenda J. Penny ended the legal arrangement controlled for so many years by the singer’s father.
What can Britney Spears do now? Buy a house. Get married. Sue those who controlled her life
By the time the conservatorship ended, Jamie Spears had been suspended from the helm of his daughter’s estate for more than a month; he was voluntarily replaced as conservator of her person in 2019 while suffering life-threatening health problems.
On a lighter note, the singer also went a little way to explain why she had posted four — count ‘em, four — nearly identical photos of herself in a bright green, midriff-baring blouse and white short-shorts.
Part of the explanation revolved around Hailey Bieber, who spent the Halloween weekend dressing up in three of Spears’ most famous looks. Spears said Bieber was the “only person” she had ever seen wearing shoulder pads, which proves the “Oops! ... I Did It Again” singer really was only a young child in the 1980s.
Many Britney Spears supporters hope the justice system will dig deeper on the larger apparatus they say enabled her father in controlling her estate for 13 years.
“Okay so I posted four times in one day in the same shirt …. I liked the way it made me feel and I never knew shoulder pads were extremely flattering !!!!,” Spears wrote.
She also noted that, thanks to Bieber’s Halloween homage, “I think I won brownie points with my kids !!!!”
The court will reconvene next month to tie up financial loose ends in the conservatorship case.
