At Britney’s hearing last week, members of the #FreeBritney movement gathered outside the Stanley Mosk Courthouse in downtown L.A., where they marched and chanted slogans of support, including “free by 40.” Britney hits that milestone on December 2nd.
The #FreeBritney movement launched in 2019 with the aim of freeing the singer from her conservatorship, as well as raising awareness of conservatorship abuse and reforming the probate court system that enables it. Jamie has dismissed the movement as a “conspiracy theory.”
Jamie was suspended from his conservatorship position — a role he’d held since February 2008 — last Wednesday, when Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Brenda Penny granted a petition by Britney’s new lawyer, Mathew Rosengart. John Zabel, a California accountant, was named the temporary conservator of Britney’s finances.
After countless hearings and a heap of issues regarding Britney’s conservatorship that has lasted for 13 years, the pop star is finally free. She is very grateful to her fans for the movement as it created pressure for Jamie as well as indicated courts to solve the case as soon as possible.
Surprisingly, Britney, who always uses Instagram to update her fans, is this time using Twitter. Addressing her supporters, she Tweeted,
#FreeBritney movement… I have no words… because of you guys and your constant resilience in freeing me from my conservatorship… my life is now in that direction !!!!!”

She openly expressed how much the support from fans meant to her. Spears wrote alongside a video of her posing in a white crop top and matching shorts,
“I cried last night for two hours cause my fans are the best and I know it.”
“I feel your hearts, and you feel mine… that much I know is true,”

Britney Spear’s conservatorship case’s court hearing was scheduled for 29th September under Judge Brenda Penny. Another hearing has been set for November 12th to ascertain whether the conservatorship will be terminated completely and will Jamie totally step off the position.
Judge Penny said in her decision,
“I believe that the suspension is in the best interests of the conservatee. The current situation is untenable.”
Mathew Rosengart, Britney’s attorney, spoke that it was clearly time to remove Jamie Spears from his daughter’s conservatorship. Rosengart argued that,
“It’s about what Britney wants. She wants him out of her life today. Britney Spears deserves to wake up tomorrow without her father as her conservator.”
Jamie Spears’ attorney, Vivian Thoreen, argued that the conservatorship should be terminated outright, as opposed to suspending Spears’ father. She very boldly stated in the court,
“There is not a shred of evidence for suspension. Mr. Spears has faithfully and loyally served. His record is impeccable.”
