Britney Spears: Los Angeles court lifts guardianship
A Los Angeles court decided on Friday to return control of her personal life to singer Britney Spears by ending the guardianship measure that had weighed on her for thirteen years.
After months of proceedings and twists and turns, a Los Angeles court finally decided this Friday, November 12 to return control of her personal life to singer Britney Spears by putting an end to the guardianship measure that had weighed on her for thirteen years and that the star described as “abusive”. “Guardianship over Britney Spears’ person and property ceases as of today. This is the decision of the court,” said judge in charge of the case, Brenda Penny.
“I think I’m going to cry for the rest of the day !!!! It’s the best day of my life … praise the Lord”, reacted the star on his Instagram account, thanking his fans for their support. “What awaits Britney, and this is the first time that we can say that in a decade, depends only on one person: Britney”, for his part rejoiced his lawyer, Mathew Rosengart, to his exit from the courthouse.
Before the court, the lawyer had indicated that a “safety net” was going to be put in place to guarantee the finances and the well-being of Britney Spears. The accountant chosen by the singer to replace her father as financial tutor will continue to supervise the management of her property, estimated at some $ 60 million by the American media.
The 39-year-old artist had already won his case in court at the end of September, by obtaining the suspension of his father Jamie Spears from the role of guardian . But above all, she asked for the right to regain control of her personal life and the cancellation of the guardianship measure put in place in 2008 after psychological disorders manifested by the star.
