Britney Spears toasts freedom with champagne as she thanks #FreeBritney fandom
Britney Spears went out to dinner with her fiance Sam Asghari and toasted to the future on her first "wonderful" weekend out from her conservatorship. Spears expressed her joy on Instagram and Twitter after her conservatorship was terminated by LA County Judge Brenda Penny on Friday, November 12. All this was set in motion after the 39-year-old Grammy winner broke her silence on the conservatorship for the first time in 13 years this summer, testifying for two days and calling the arrangement "abusive" and claiming it was used to "ruin" her life.
The "Toxic" singer Spears came to Instagram on Monday, November 15, to express her gratitude to her fans and to share how she celebrated her newfound "freedom" during the weekend with a bubbly champagne. Britney fans have been with her on her tumultuous journey. They scrutinized every post and tweet of hers, often raising the alarm that all was not right with the 'Toxic' singer. As a result of which the #FreeBritney movement was born. And now that her father Jamie Spears no longer controls her life or her finances, she celebrated her freedom with the #FreedBritney.
Understandably Spears isn't the only one who is overjoyed. After the verdict was announced on Friday, Nov 12, fans outside the downtown Los Angeles courtroom burst streamers and applauded for the singer's newfound freedom and victory in the conservatorship case.
"I've lied to the entire world and told them I'm well and happy. "It's a lie," Spears said at the tense June hearing, in which she demanded that her father be imprisoned. "I figured if I said it enough times, maybe I'd become joyful since I've been in denial," Spears explained. "I've been in a state of shock." I've been traumatized. Fake it until you make it, as they say. But now I'm going to be honest with you. It is my wish and my dream for all of this to come to an end."
Approximately 500 people applauded and threw confetti into the air. Celebrities such as Cher, Paris Hilton, and Lady Gaga thanked Spears on social media. Shortly after the hearing, Spears' fiance, Sam Asghari, expressed his support on Instagram.
She said, "What an amazing weekend … 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 !!!! I’m celebrating my freedom and my B day for the next two months !!!!!!!!!!! I mean after 13 years … I think I’ve waited long ENOUGH !!!! I’m so happy my lawyer Mathew Rosengart came into my life when he did … he has truly turned my life around … I’m forever thankful for that !!!!

Following that she also thanked Hailey Baldwin in her post saying "Psssss please do not laugh at my latest post !!!! I realized I got really excited with my lime green shoulder padded shirt !!! The only person I’ve ever seen wear shoulder pads is @HaileyBieber. She was me for Halloween … I think I won brownie points with my kids !!!! But seriously though … how freaking cool is that ???? Okay so I posted four times in one day in the same shirt …. I liked the way it made me feel and I never knew shoulder pads were extremely flattering !!!!"
Everyone was overjoyed because the #FreeBritney campaign is now a success.
