Britney Spears Celebrates ‘Freedom’ With First-ever Night Out
Singer Britney Spears took to Instagram to celebrate her first-ever night out after an L.A. judge terminated her 13-year conservatorship last week.
The singer, in her update, shared on Monday reflected on experiencing her first “amazing weekend” free from the conservatorship.
“What an amazing weekend … I felt like I was on cloud 9 the whole time!!! I actually got my first glass of champagne at the most beautiful restaurant I’ve ever seen last night !!!!” she wrote on Instagram.
She also noted that she’d be able to celebrate more at her upcoming birthday. Britney Spears will turn 40 on Dec. 2.
In her post, she also expressed thanks to attorney Mathew Rosengart, whom she hired in July after getting court approval to hire her own attorney, for helping change her life.
“I’m celebrating my freedom and my B day for the next two months !!!!!!!!!!! I mean after 13 years … I think I’ve waited long ENOUGH !!!! I’m so happy my lawyer Mathew Rosengart came into my life when he did … he has truly turned my life around … I’m forever thankful for that !!!!”
She also appreciated fans who celebrated outside of the L.A. courthouse following the ruling. “What a sight seeing so many people celebrating my victory …. I love my fans so much … so thank you!!!!”
An L. A judge had terminated Spears’ conservatorship on Nov. 12, which the singer described as the “best day ever.”
The judge ruled, “effective today, the conservatorship of Ms. Britney Jean Spears is no longer required.”
Spears broke her silence in an emotional testimony during a Jun. 23 hearing detailing the hardships she has endured throughout the decades-long conservatorship.
She noted that it was her “wish” and “dream” for the conservatorship to end, expressing hope for justice and that her father be charged with “conservatorship abuse.”
Spears was first placed under conservatorship in 2008 with her father, Jamie Spears, overseeing.
In September, Jamie Spears was also suspended as conservator of the pop star’s estate, with Rosengart having since launched a full-scale investigation into the alleged conservatorship abuse.
The next hearing is set for Jan. 19 to address pending accounting and other lingering issues.
