(ReliableNews.org) – LA Superior Court Judge Brenda Penny removed Britney Spears’ father, James Spears, from control over the entertainer’s huge estate. Although that action did not totally end the conservatorship, the case is undergoing significant changes since being implemented. The iconic singer took to her Twitter account a few days later to thank her supporters.
Britney thanked the #FreeBritney movement in her post, writing that she lacked the words to express her feelings adequately. She noted her life is now moving in the right direction because she’s free from Jamie Spears’ influence as a conservator. Britney ended her tweet, saying she cried for two hours the night before because her “fans are the best, and I know it…”

Netflix debuted a Britney Spears documentary on Sept. 28. Britney vs. Spears centers around the pop star’s battle with her father over the conservatorship she’s been under for the past 13 years, with her father stepping down exactly a day after its debut.
As happy as she may appear to be, Britney’s legal battles aren’t over yet. Judge Penny scheduled a November 12 hearing to discuss ending her conservatorship altogether.
Jamie’s lawyer suggested the court do away with the conservatorship during the September 28 hearing, but Britney’s lawyers argued against the suggestion. Instead, presumably, they want to get to the bottom of Jamie’s reportedly questionable financial practices while acting as conservator of his daughter’s $60 million estate.
He is required to turn over all financial records to Britney’s new conservator in a timely fashion, providing an opportunity to audit or otherwise review them. Had the conservatorship ended, Britney’s lawyers may never have gotten their hands on those documents.
