Netflix has updated the text at the end of its Britney vs Spears documentary after the controversial guardianship she was under was terminated.

The streaming service released the documentary on 28 September, a day before the 41-year-old headed back to court for the last stretch to end her conservatorship, which began in 2008.

In the documentary directed by Director Erin Lee Carr (How To Fix a Drug Scandal, Dirty Money), she and journalist Jenny Eliscu delve into the tangled weave of the conservatorship. It features years-long investigative work, exclusive interviews and never-before-seen documents.

On Tuesday, Netflix tweeted that it updated the text reflecting that Britney is now finally free.
