The termination of Britney Spears’ conservatorship Friday has set the internet on fire with joy.
In a hearing lasting no more than 40 minutes, Spears’ nearly 14-year conservatorship was determined by a California judge to be “no longer required” and formally brought to an end.
Spears posted video of a fan rally outside the courthouse on her Instagram shortly after the ruling was made. “Free Britney” flags and signs shot up from the crowd, while bursts of hot pink confetti were set off.
“I love my fans so much, it’s crazy!!!” Spears wrote. “I think I’m gonna cry the rest of the day!!!! Best day ever…”
Sam Asghari, Spears’ fiancé, also took to Instagram to express his joy.
“History was made today,” Asghari wrote. “Britney is Free!”
