Britney Spears reportedly "burst into tears" after a judge suspended the singer's father, Jamie Spears, from her conservatorship today.
According to Page Six, the 39-year-old was overcome with emotion when Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Brenda Penny concluded it was in Britney's "best interest" to immediately suspend Jamie from the conservatorship after 13 long years at the helm.
"Britney burst into tears upon hearing the judge's decision," a source told the outlet. "For the longest time, she had begun to think that she would never see the day that her father's domineering control over every single aspect of her life would end, but it finally happened."

Indeed, since 2008, 69-year-old Jamie had the power to control all aspects of Britney's life, from her career and health to her finances and US$60 million (approx. $84 million) estate.
"She's in shock and at a loss for words but literally jumping for joy. She hasn't felt joy like this in 13 years," the source added.
The landmark victory comes after a long, drawn-out legal battle that escalated on June 23 when the pop star gave a blistering testimony — it marked the first time she publicly addressed her 13-year conservatorship.

In the 24-minute statement she read before the judge, Britney said her conservatorship was "abusive" and asked for it to be terminated without further evaluation.
Today, Judge Penny ruled Jamie will no longer serve as conservator of his Britney's estate, immediately removing him from the conservatorship altogether.
"The current situation is untenable," Judge Penny said. "It reflects a toxic environment which requires the suspension of James Spears."
Hours after the ruling, Britney appeared to share her feelings on Instagram as she posted a video of herself flying a plane.
"On cloud 9 right now 🤩☁️✈️ !!!!" she began her post. "First time flying a plane and first time in a prop plane ✈️ !!! Geez I was scared 😳 🙄 !!! Pssss bringing the ship 🛳 home, JL ...
"Stay classy beautiful people !!!! New pics coming soon 📷😉✨ !!!!"
