Editor’s Note on December 3, 2021: This story about the end of Britney’s conservatorship was originally published on November 13, 2021. You can read our original story below.
Wow, they did it. #FreeBritney freed Britney. After 14 years under a conservatorship that controlled her health, finances, career and personal life, Britney Spears is free.
Britney means so much to so many people. She’s a gay icon. A generation-defining pop star. A folk hero.
But for too many years, she’s also been a prisoner. During the peak of the aught’s truly and diabolically insane celebrity culture, she couldn’t step outside her house without being relentlessly harassed by paparazzi. Tabloids analyzed her every decision, outfit and facial expression. And after suffering from mental health problems, she was placed under an extremely restrictive legal conservatorship that gave near-total control of her life to her father Jamie Spears.
It’s been a long road, but as of Friday, November 12, Britney Spears is finally free.
“The court finds and determines that the conservatorship of the person and the Estate of Britney Jean Spears is no longer required,” Judge Brenda Penny said in a brief and drama-free hearing in a Los Angeles courtroom.
Variety reports that Britney Spears wasn’t present in the hearing, but her loyal followers turned out to the courthouse to show their support.
Along the way, Britney’s had a symbiotic relationship with the #FreeBritney movement.
#FreeBritney started as a conspiracy theory, but it’s also led to a national reckoning on the many ways the media, the legal system and the public worked together to make one woman’s life a living hell. The toxic celebrity culture that surrounded Britney Spears for so many years still exists, but young people have also changed the way we think about celebrities, mental health and women in the public eye.
Recently, Spears herself validated the #FreeBritney movement, and she credited her supporters for giving her the courage to speak out and advocate for an end to her imprisonment.
In an October 4 Instagram post, the singer wrote, “#FreeBritney movement … I have no words … because of you guys and your constant resilience in freeing me from my conservatorship … my life is now in that direction !!!!! I cried last night for two hours cause my fans are the best and I know it … I feel your hearts and you feel mine … that much I know is true 💞 !!!!!”
And on Friday, after the judge finally set her free, she addressed her #FreeBritney legions directly.
Seriously, what a long, strange trip it’s been.
Now, we’re here to proudly say: All hail the queen.
The #Free Britney movement may have achieved its goal, but the movement lives on. Actress Jameela Jamil summed up the attitude of Spears’s fans on Twitter Friday, saying that now that Britney is free, it’s time to “protect Britney”.
“OH MY GOD!!! oh my god. You guys freed Britney!!!!,” she wrote. “But NOW we have to protect her from the paparazzi and tabloid media who are determined to drive her back into this same mess, by harassing and stalking her. We have to now PROTECT BRITNEY.”
Seriously, she must be protected at all costs.
Editor’s Note on November 12: We originally published this article on June 23 when Spears originally addressed the court to demand an end to her conservatorship. Our original story and photos from that hearing can be found below.
Britney Spears is scheduled to speak in court today regarding her conservatorship. That means it’s time for us, the fans, to support her now more than ever.
For those of you that don’t know, Britney hasn’t been in charge of both her personal life and finances for the past 13 years. Everything has been running and dictated by her father, Jamie Spears, since the singer suffered mental health-related issues in 2008. The conservatorship covers pretty much all aspects of Britney’s life including her financial, medical and even personal decisions. It’s an extremely unique situation, as conservators usually oversee the affairs of seniors or people with severe mental disabilities.
In recent years, an organic Free Britney movement has developed among the singer’s most hardcore fans, who believe the pop star has been unfairly placed under the control of her father. The #FreeBritney movement has analyzed her Instagram posts and other public statements for signs that she’s being held against her will, and the movement got many new supporters after a New York Times documentary about the conservatorship went viral in early 2021.
Today, Britney will speak to the court directly for the first time ever about her opinions on the conservatorship and what she wants to do in the future. We’re not entirely sure whether or not Britney wants the conservatorship to end completely since she’s never opened up about the topic publicly. However, The New York Times recently obtained confidential court records that indicate Britney has opposed the situation for years.
As Brit finally addresses the issue in court, we have no choice but to support the #FreeBritney movement that has been consistently seeing the light of day on social media platforms like Twitter, Instagram and TikTok. Britney Spears isn’t just a singer. She’s a symbol of 90s culture, a gay icon and something of a tragic figure in pop culture.
Today is a HUGE day for our girl, she finally speaks to the court about her conservatorship.
