Her attorney, Mathew Rosengart, told the crowd: “Britney, as of today, is a free woman, and she’s an independent woman,” he said. “It’s been a dark day for me, for Britney Spears, and I think a lot of us who’ve been following conservatorship titles and how they operate.”
Since she explosive testimony In June, Britney became increasingly vocal about her desire to step out of her managerial role, telling Judge Penny, “All I want is to own my money, to have this thing over, and a boyfriend. I’ll drive me in his damn car.” On Monday, Britney posted on Instagram for the first time since Friday’s ruling, post a photo of a fork driving through a tube of lipstick. “What a great weekend… I feel like I’m on cloud 9!!!” She wrote, adding that she received her “first glass of Champagne” at “the most beautiful restaurant I have ever seen”.
