Control over the artist’s finances will be temporarily transferred to a professional auditor.

A court in Los Angeles (California) has officially removed her own father from the custody of the American singer Britney Spears. This was reported by CNN with reference to the court order.

The decision on the suspension and subsequent termination of guardianship was made on September 29. Earlier, the singer’s father Jamie Spears himself agreed to this. At a hearing on Friday, Judge Brenda Penny officially terminated the 13-year guardianship of Britney Spears. Control over her finances will be temporarily transferred to a professional auditor, which the artist herself and her lawyer Mathew Rosengart insisted on.

Britney herself was absent from the court session. Her lawyer, commenting on the verdict, said that it was a “grand day” for the singer. “For the first time in more than ten years, we can say that only one person – Britney herself – has the right to decide what to do next,” Rosengart stressed. He explained that the court’s decision comes into force immediately.
