Britney Spears is free again.
The 39-year-old American pop star has been under legal guardianship for 13 years following mental health issues that became a full-blown issue in 2008.
Spears, through her lawyers, has been trying to end her conservatorship for more than a year to regain her independence and have control over her medical care.
“The court finds the conservatorship of Britney Jean Spears is no longer required,” said Judge Brenda Penny during a court hearing on 12 November.
The hearing took 31 minutes and Spears did not appear by phone or video, according to media.
