In court on Wednesday, a judge kicked Jamie Spears off the conservatorship that’s been controlling his 39-year-old daughter’s personal life and $60 million estate after 13 years, in news that reportedly caused Britney to ‘burst into tears’.

Taking to Instagram to celebrate, the singer penned: ‘On cloud 9 right now!!!’, alongside pictures and video of her flying a prop plane for the first time before she was greeted with the influx of support from fellow stars.

It’s a huge victory for the singer in her long battle to regain control of her personal and financial affairs. LA Superior Court Judge Brenda Penny appointed accountant John Zabel as a temporary conservator after removing Jamie.

Zabel – a Certified Public Accountant will take over Britney’s financial affairs until the court decides she’s ready to look after herself again and the conservatorship can be completely terminated – which could happen in just a few months.

Dozens of fans and supporters of what has become known as the #FreeBritney movement gathered outside the court, waving banners and changing ‘Free Britney’ and ‘Jamie for jail’.

Britney’s lawyer, Mathew Rosengart, thanked the movement for its support, which he said had been ‘instrumental’.

He noted that while today’s ruling was a ‘substantial step toward [Britney’s] freedom’ there are still further allegations of Britney’s mistreatment that are being investigated by state and federal authorities. 

Rosengart told TMZ that Britney should ‘absolutely’ sue her father if there is evidence that proves that Jamie misappropriated money.

‘Britney burst into tears upon hearing the judge’s decision,’ an anonymous source told Page Six.

‘For the longest time, she had begun to think that she would never see the day that her father’s domineering control over every single aspect of her life would end, but it finally happened.’ 

‘She’s in shock and at a loss for words but literally jumping for joy,’ the source added. ‘She hasn’t felt joy like this in 13 years.’  

While unclear when Spears took her flying lesson, the post is thought to be symbolic of her newfound freedom.

In July, the singer legally got behind the wheel of a car and drove alone for the first time in 15 years after a judge lifted the driving restrictions imposed on her by her father’s conservatorship.    

In the post about her flying lesson, Britney wrote: ‘On cloud 9 right now !!!! First time flying a plane and first time in a prop plane !!! Geez I was scared !!! Pssss bringing the ship home, JL … Stay classy beautiful people !!!! New pics coming soon !!!!’ 

A second video captures the view as the small plane flies over a strip of green land cutting through blue waters which was followed by an unsteady photo of palm trees.     

It was later reported that Britney and her fiancé Sam Asghari went on vacation before her conservatorship hearing.
