Britney Spears has thanked fans who have called for years to #FreeBritney for major changes in the conservatorship that has long controlled her life and money. Spears’s expressed her gratitude in identical posts on Twitter and Instagram on Monday — her first public comments on the case since a judge suspended her father as conservator of her estate last week in a move she had long expressed hope for.
“I feel your hearts and you feel mine … that much I know is true,” she added. Spears has not been freed from the conservatorship entirely.
The legal arrangement that has been in place since 2008 remains, minus her father, but it may be terminated at a November 12 hearing. 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 #FreeBritney movement, which was started on social media around 2019 by a small group of fans, has led to noisy demonstrations outside court hearings on the conservatorship and has been featured in the documentary Framing Britney Spears.
