A judge has suspended Britney Spears’ father, Jamie Spears from the legal arrangement that gave him control of her life after Spears accused him of years of abuse.
Jamie Spears was appointed her guardian in 2008, amid concerns over her mental health. On Wednesday, a judge handed the role to a man appointed by Spears.
Fans around the world have supported her through the #FreeBritney campaign.
Those outside the court in Los Angeles cheered and whooped when they heard the news.
And there was jubilation from some of Spears’ high-profile supporters on social media, including Cher, LaToya Jackson and Dionne Warwick.
