After much disappointment when the court judge rejected Britney Spears' plea to remove her father from the conservatorship, there's finally some good news for our Princess of Pop. But let's rewind a bit to everything that's happened since the last big development in the conservatorship case.
On Tuesday, July 13, Brit took to the Gram to blast her conservatorship once more in a since-deleted post. "Like I said ... my maids may have been able to get their nails done during COVID after salons opened," the star wrote. "but f--k ... at least my maid outfit was the hottest." Spears previously talked about her beauty routine being controlled when she spoke out at the Los Angeles Superior Court at the end of June.
The picture was then deleted and reposted with a new, much more tame caption of just three high-heel emojis. Brit then spent the next day in court testifying against the conservatorship again. "I'm here to get rid of my dad and charge him with conservatorship abuse," Spears said, after explaining that she's "extremely scared" of her father. "I want him investigated... This conservatorship has allowed my dad to ruin my life," the Grammy-winner added.
Britney went on to explain how each aspect of her life is controlled by the conservatorship, including eating habits, and that she has been forced to work 70 hours a week. "That's more than a regular job," the 39-year-old said. "Their goal was to make me feel crazy, and I'm not, and that's not okay." Spears then told a story about when her father, Jamie, took the singer's driver's license away for a speeding warning - not a ticket.
"I want to get my dad removed," the Princess of Pop once again expressed. "My dad is ruining my life." Aside from an end to the conservatorship, Britney requested a new attorney after her last lawyer showed lackluster representation. The performer's mom previously came out in support of her daughter's plea, calling Spears "courageous" in a new court petition.
And it seems that some of the court hearings and petitions are finally paying off, as the judge approved Britney's request to hire new representation in the conservatorship case. The Toxic singer took to the Gram with a celebratory post, which included the "FreeBritney" hashtag at the end. Spears also thanked her "awesome fans" in a tweet with the same footage.
We're so happy for the pop icon. Let the victories keep on coming! #FreeBritney
