Britney Spears finally got her wish yesterday – a judge removed her father Jamie Spears as her conservator.
After 13 years controlling his daughter, Jamie has officially been suspended as her conservator, with CPA John Zabel named as temporary conservator until December 31st. In addition to losing his gig, Jamie must now turn over all books and records pertaining to the arrangement.
During yesterday’s hearing, Jamie’s lawyer argued to end the conservatorship immediately, while Britney’s lawyers wanted it to wind down between 30 to 45 days from now.
The next hearing on the issue is set for November 12th, which could see the end of the conservatorship completely.
- As for how Britney reacted to the news, a source tells the New York Post she “burst into tears.” “For the longest time, she had begun to think that she would never see the day that her father’s domineering control over every single aspect of her life would end, but it finally happened,” says the insider. “She’s in shock and at a loss for words but literally jumping for joy. She hasn’t felt joy like this in 13 years.”
- Britney later took to Instagram to share video of her flying a plane, but the first line of the caption likely alludes to what went down yesterday. She writes, “On cloud 9 right now 🤩☁️✈️ !!!!,” before adding, “First time flying a plane and first time in a prop plane ✈️ !!! Geez I was scared 😳 🙄 !!! Pssss bringing the ship 🛳 home, JL … Stay classy beautiful people !!!! New pics coming soon 📷😉✨ !!!@
