It's taken 13 years, dozens of court appearances, four documentary films, a tsunami of misery and plenty of family drama but she’s finally shed the shackles that made her a prisoner in her own life.
Britney Spears, one of music’s hardest-working stars, can finally look forward to a normal life after being freed from the conservatorship that gave her father, Jamie, control over every aspect of her life. A judge recently pronounced her liberated from the handcuffs she has long sought to unlock and the 39-year-old couldn’t be more delighted.
"Good God, I love my fans,” she tweeted, praising the Free Britney movement that had been instrumental in keeping her plight in the public eye. “I think I’m gonna cry the rest of the day! Best day ever, praise the Lord. Can I get an Amen?"
