This isn’t the first time Spears has expressed her gratitude for the campaign in recent months, amid the 13-year battle to end the stereotypes that governed her life and finances and which she called a described as “outrageous” at the historic June hearing.
In September, the singer gave a shout-out to her supporters on Instagram before temporarily deactivating her account. “Team #FreeBritney you guys kick ass! Love you so much and God bless!” he wrote.
Spears’ legal battle saw a major development last week, when her father, Jamie Spears, was suspended as her mentor, a role she has played since her guardianship began in 2008. A separate temporary guardianship has been established and will be headed by John Zabel, an accountant who was selected by Brittany’s legal team.
Last month, Jamie — who has previously been adamant that there is “no basis” for removing her from the role — filed a petition calling for Britney’s guardianship to end entirely. During last week’s hearing, Jamie’s attorney, Vivian Lee Thorin, also argued that instead of suspending her client, the stereotype should be terminated on the spot.
This was opposed by Brittany’s attorney, Matthew Rosengart, who argued for a new hearing to be held within 30 to 45 days to investigate Jamie’s conduct. However, this hearing will likely also determine whether to dismantle the singer’s stereotypes altogether.
Spears appeared on social media the next day to respond to the news, writing that she was “on cloud nine” following the results of the hearing.
