Britney and her fiancé, Sam Asghari, spent Friday afternoon celebrating her legal win. As Sam put it, “History was made today. Britney is Free!”
“I love my fans so much it’s crazy,” Britney wrote on Instagram, not long after the judge ended her conservatorship. “I think I’m gonna cry the rest of the day !!!! Best day ever.” She included the hashtag #FreedBritney.
“I’m so proud of her,” Britney’s lawyer, Mathew Rosengart, said outside the courthouse. “I thank her. I thank her for her courage and voice and power and I thank her for our relationship, not only is this momentous for Britney… but she helped shine a light on conservatorships and guardianships from coast to coast. California to New York.”
He went on, “That took a tremendous amount of insight, courage and grace.”
Britney has previously criticized her conservatorship as “abusive,” saying it has controlled her life as she worked 70 hours a week. However, Jamie’s lawyer has defended his actions.
In September, his attorney said in a statement, “All of his actions were well within the parameters of the authority conferred upon him by the court. His actions were done with the knowledge and consent of Britney, her court-appointed attorney, and/or the court. Jamie’s record as conservator—and the court’s approval of his actions—speak for themselves.”
E! News has reached out to reps for Britney and Jamie for comment but hasn’t heard back.
