The guardianship of pop star Britney Spears was finally ended after 13 years, a California court determined at the Nov. 12 hearing. Judge Brenda Penny ruled Friday afternoon that the court finds and determines that guardianship of the person and estate of Britney Jean Spears is no longer necessary.
According to Variety, at the short and flowing hearing, all parties gave their consent to the termination, although Britney was not present at the hearing. The singer’s attorney, Mathew Rosengart, began speaking to the judge by reading his client’s testimony that she delivered in June, stating that her wish is for the guardianship to end without evaluation. “The record is clear,” Rosengart said. “Today’s time has come.”
Rosengart and Jody Montgomery’s attorney, Laurie Ann Wright, said they had filed a sealed termination plan last Monday. While the details were not disclosed in court, Rosengart told the judge that he had established a “safety net” on both the personal and financial aspects of Spears’ affairs. “We have committed ourselves to an orderly transition of power,” explained Rosengart. The conservatorship is fully terminated, but accountant John Zabel, who replaced Spears’ father Jamie after his suspension, will have “limited administrative power” as part of the termination plan.
Britney has been living under a court-ordered guardianship under which her father Jamie Spears placed her in 2008. Around that time, the singer had endured a series of public cheating that was widely covered by the tabloids. But, over the years, circumstances changed. The singer continued to work, touring and doing a residency in Las Vegas, generating hundreds of millions of dollars. And yet he remained under guardianship. As her fans around the world began to wonder about her whereabouts and her best interests, rumors spread online that Spears was being held against her will, and the #FreeBritney movement was born. He became sole conservator in 2019 after attorney Andrew Wallet resigned from joint conservatorship.
After overseeing her guardianship for 13 years, the singer’s father was removed this fall when Judge Penny immediately suspended him on September 29 and appointed John Zabel, an accountant, to temporarily assume control of the estate and work alongside. with Spears guardian of his person. Jodi Montgomery, who manages the pop star’s daily wellness and medical decisions. In June 2021, when the pop star testified publicly for the first time, everything changed. Spears called her guardianship “abusive” and said she believes her father and other guardians should be in jail. This summer, Spears chose to retain Rosengart, and a former federal prosecutor, who made his first court appearance for the singer on July 14.
With Rosengart representing her, the star began to gain an upward momentum in her long and contentious legal battle against her father winning one legal victory after another. Spears told a judge earlier this summer that her conservatives forced her to work against her own will, even though she begged to take a break from touring.
Many moving parts still need to fit together to end the saga of conservatorship. The investigation is actively ongoing. Additional hearings are scheduled for December 8 and January 19.
Seeing the response on social media, Britney tweeted a video and wrote, “OMG I love my fans so much it’s crazy! I think I’m going to cry the rest of the day! Best day of my life. .. praise! “. Lord … can I get an Amen #FreedBritney. “
