Britney Spears has thanked her fans for launching a vocal and high-profile campaign to free the pop star from legal protection.
The singer took to Twitter to praise the “Free Britney” movement after a court hearing in Los Angeles last week in which a judge suspended her father’s control of her business affairs.
“I have no words for you guys and your continued resilience in freeing me from my stereotypes. My life is on that side now!!!! I cried for two hours last night because my fans are the best and I know it,” she wrote on Twitter.
And she continued: “I feel your hearts and you feel mine… as much as I know is true.”
Judges will rule in November if the 13-year conservatism will be perpetuated after the singer’s treatment for mental health issues.
Judge Brenda Penney suspends Mr Spears as custodian of her daughter’s $60m estate
“The current situation is not fair,” Judge Penney told the court after the plea, but did not end the conservatism.
The court then named a California accountant, John Zabel, as temporary custodian of her finances.
At the same hearing, Vivian Lee Thorin, a lawyer for Mr Spears, argued that the stereotype should be ended immediately, while Spears’ lawyer wanted more time to investigate her behavior while in office.
During a June court hearing, Ms Spears broke her silence on the stereotype and declared that it had left her “traumatised” as she called for the investigation and jailing of those who oversaw it.
At that hearing she claimed she was drugged and forced to work against her will during conservatory, prevented from removing birth control devices and forced into a mental health facility.
The #FreeBritney movement, which was started on social media around 2019 by a small group of fans, sparked outrage outside court hearings in the case and was highlighted in the “Framing Britney Spears” documentary in February.
