Britney Spears Says She’s ‘On Cloud 9’ in First Post After Father’s Suspension as Conservator

Britney Spears is up, up and away after her father, Jamie Spears, was suspended as conservator of her estate in L.A. court on Wednesday (Sept. 29), posting a video of herself flying a plane for the very first time and writing that she’s “on cloud 9.”

“On cloud 9 right now!!!! First time flying a plane and first time in a prop plane!!!” Spears captioned two flying videos and one blurry photo of palm trees. “Geez I was scared!!!”

The second part of the caption has fans scratching their heads, with Spears cryptically writing along with a ship emoji, “Pssss bringing the ship home, JL … Stay classy beautiful people !!!! New pics coming soon!!!!” While fans are pretty certain JL is in reference to Jamie Lynn Spears, they’re not sure what Britney is trying to tell her little sister. In Jamie Lynn’s most recent Instagram post, she used a similar phrase in her caption, writing of her daughter’s softball championship, “Fun weekend with this amazing group of girls- took home the [ship]. Thanks for having us.”


On Wednesday, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Brenda Penny agreed with a petition from Britney Spears and her attorney that Jamie Spears needed to give up his role as conservator. The decision comes months after the pop star pleaded for her father’s removal in dramatic court hearings.

Minutes after the judge’s decision, Spears’ fiancé, Sam Asghari, celebrated the news on Instagram. “Free Britney! Congratulations!!!!!!!!!” Asghari wrote on his Instagram Story, later adding alongside a photo of a lioness, “She did this. Her fan base is called the army for a reason.”
