At long last, Britney Spears ends her troubled conservatorship

Written by By Yasmin Schafer, CNN

Spears was placed under the conservatorship in December 2008, soon after her father, Jamie Spears, filed for divorce from her mother, Lynne. Two years later, the court ordered a personal manager to run the pop star’s affairs.

In 2013, a judge allowed her father to install his brother, Jamie, as the conservator. But he stepped down from the role in 2016.

“I am happy to announce that after almost eight years, my conservatorship has officially ended,” Spears tweeted on Friday. “Thank you all for your support and loving words during this difficult time, the Spears family is so thankful and appreciative of all of your love and support!”

“We are very grateful to Britney for choosing us to help guide her through this very difficult time,” said Lynne Spears on her official website. “As her mother, I am very proud of her accomplishments and the positive way she has handled herself over the past several years.”

A representative for Spears was not immediately available for comment.

Spears’s elder brother, Bryan, also tweeted about the end of his family’s legal predicament.

“Today I finally got to tell my sister the wonderful news that she no longer needs a conservatorship,” he wrote. “It’s a great feeling and we’re very thankful for the tremendous work and loyalty by the professionals over the years in getting Britney’s life in order.”

In her years under conservatorship, Spears has released two albums, the 2010 album “Femme Fatale” and 2012’s “Britney Jean.”
