Britney Spears has thanked the fans who have conducted a long campaign to end her
conservatorship.

Spears, 39, made the comments on Twitter following a court ruling last week that suspended her father as the controller of her business affairs and set a November date to consider whether to terminate the 13-year-long legal arrangement entirely.

“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,” the pop singer tweeted in a message tagged for the #FreeBritney movement.

“I feel your hearts and you feel mine… that much I know is true,” she added.

Spears, who has not performed since late 2018, was on
vacation in French Polynesia when Los Angeles judge Brenda Penny
last week removed her father Jamie Spears as conservator of her $60 million estate in a major victory for
the “Toxic” singer.

The conservatorship was set up in 2008 after Spears suffered
a mental breakdown and it controls a vast array of her financial
and personal affairs.

The movement

The #FreeBritney movement, which was started on social media
around 2019 by a small group of fans, has held noisy
demonstrations outside court hearings in the case and was
highlighted in the “Framing Britney Spears” documentary in
February.

Spears stepped up her efforts in June to break free of the
conservatorship, telling the judge in her first public comments
that it was humiliating and abusive, and that she wanted her
life back.

The termination of the conservatorship appears to have the support of all sides and Penny has set a Nov. 12 hearing to discuss it.
