Britney Spears has finally become free after a Los Angeles court ended the pop superstar's 13-year conservatorship.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Brenda Penny ruled Friday, November 12, that the conservatorship would come to an end immediately.

"The court finds and determines that the conservatorship of the person and the estate is no longer required," Penny said in court.
"Therefore, effective today, the conservatorship of the person and estate of Britney Jean Spears… is hereby terminated."

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

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

"Good God I love my fans so much it's crazy," Spears wrote in an Instagram post after the hearing. "I think I'm gonna cry the rest of the day."
