Britney Spears took to Instagram shortly after Judge Brenda Penny ruled her father, Jamie Spears, is to be suspended from her conservatorship after 13 years in the controversial role.

The ruling was a big victory for the singer, who testified earlier this year to the abusive nature of her conservatorship, which began following her public meltdown in the early 2000s.

"On cloud 9 right now," the singer shared with a video of herself in the cockpit of an aeroplane. "First time flying a plane and first time in a prop plane."

"Geez I was scared," she added, with her signature emojis.

"Pssss bringing the ship home, JL," she said. "Stay classy beautiful people !!!! New pics coming soon."


At the same time the singer's fiancé, Sam Asghari – the two got engaged earlier this month – took to Instagram celebrating Britney's victory.

"The power of the lioness!!!!!" he wrote with the fan-started movement's hashtag: "#freebritney."
