Britney Spears' father Jamie Spears has agreed to step down from his role as conservator of the pop superstar's estate.

Jamie Spears' decision to step down comes just weeks after the singer's new legal team filed a petition to remove him and replace him with a CPA.

Britney has been living under court-sanctioned conservatorship since 2008 that gave her father Jamie control over her finances and personal affairs.

She has made it clear several times that she no longer wants her father to act as her conservator. The conservatorship has even sparked a fan-driven #FreeBritney movement.

In a July 14 hearing, Judge Brenda Penny approved Britney's request to hire attorney Mathew Rosengart to represent her. Britney also made it clear that she will not perform live as long as her father is in charge of conservatorship.

Jamie's decision to step down is being praised as a "major victory" by Rosengart, who says he intends to investigate Spears' conduct over the past 13 years and plans to depose him under oath.
