Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Brenda Penny ruled Friday (Nov. 12) to end the conservatorship that has controlled Spears’ personal and professional life for the last decade-plus. Commenting on a celebratory video from outside the courtroom posted on Spears’ Twitter account, Missy Elliott wrote, “May Blessings continue to flow for you! And nothing but Happiness Love & Peace of mind from here on out.”
Cyndi Lauper offered “congrats,” Cher declared “She’s Free,” and Dionne Warwick said it’s “a day to celebrate the liberation of Britney Spears.”
Spears herself celebrated the ruling on her social media, calling it the “best day ever” and saying she’s “gonna cry the rest of the day!!!!”
