More about Britney Spears
Earlier in April this year, Britney Spears’ conservatorship ended when a judge in LA ended the legal agreement, which gave control of the star’s life to her father since 2008. Spears later describes it as the “Best Day Ever”. After the conservatorship ended, it gave Spears charge of her estimated $60m estate and also the control to make personal decisions herself for the first time in years.
Spears at the time shared a video of her supporters standing outside the court house, and wrote:
“Good God I love my fans so much it’s crazy !!! I think I’m gonna cry the rest of the day !!!! Best day ever … praise the Lord … can I get an Amen #FreedBritney.”
Spears also got married to Sam Asghari in July earlier this year after a five-year courtship in California.
