“What an amazing weekend,” the pop star, who was spotted out and about in Hollywood over the weekend with her fiancé Sam Asghari, wrote on Instagram Monday.
“I felt like I was on cloud 9 the whole time! I actually got my first glass of champagne at the most beautiful restaurant I’ve ever seen last night!”
The “Toxic” singer said she would be celebrating her freedom and her birthday for the next two months. “I mean after 13 years … I think I’ve waited long enough!” she wrote. Spears will turn 40 on Dec. 2.
She offered special thanks to entertainment attorney Matthew Rosengart, who represented her after she was permitted to hire her own attorney for the first time. “He has truly turned my life around,” she wrote, adding that it had been an incredible sight seeing so many people celebrating her victory. “I love my fans so much,” she wrote.
After Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Brenda Penny dissolved the conservatorship on Friday, a large crowd of fans outside the courthouse in downtown Los Angeles were seen throwing confetti, waving “Free Britney” flags and cheering the decision.
Until this year, Spears had rarely spoken publicly about the arrangement she was locked in. Her father, James “Jamie” Spears, acted as the conservator for most of the conservatorship’s duration, allowing him to control almost every aspect of her personal and financial life. This included making decisions on how she spent her money, where she could travel, and reportedly even what she could eat or drink and what medications she could take.
