For over a decade, a movement has been growing in response to what many believed was simply a conspiracy regarding one of the world’s most famous pop stars. To imagine that Britney Spears, one of the most well-known names on the planet, could be trapped in plain sight for so long seemed impossible, though others continued to petition for her autonomy over her hard-earned finances and her life at large with the hashtag #FreeBritney. Now, that alleged “conspiracy” is turning out to have chilling truth to it.
There are shocking new updates almost every day as her court case accelerates. Spears's new lawyer, Mathew Rosengart, had signed a new petition to remove her father, Jamie Spears, as her conservator, and now, after 13 years, it seems her father is listening to her pleas. He has filed a petition to the court to end the conservatorship, stating that his daughter should have the right to manage her own life if she feels she is capable.
Just a few weeks later, Spears has announced her engagement to long-term boyfriend Sam Asghari. The couple shared the news on Instagram on Sunday, September 12, with photos of her new ring. Spears is reportedly ecstatic. The couple have been open about their desire to take the next steps in their relationship, namely getting married and having kids. It seems that they are finally able to start planning for the future now that the end of the conservatorship is in sight.
