And Britney herself celebrated the news by taking a flying lesson, which she was clearly ecstatic about.
Watch the video below.
The Toxic singer captioned the Instagram post: “On cloud nine right now! First time flying a plane and first time in a prop plane!
“Geez I was scared. Pssss bringing the ship home, JL!”
Britney signed off the message: “Stay classy beautiful people!!!! New pics coming soon.”
The post came after Los Angeles judge Brenda Penny said in a court hearing: “The current situation is not tenable. It reflects a toxic environment which requires the suspension of Jamie Spears effective today.”
Britney’s father, Jamie, has been at the head of the conservatorship for 13 years.
The controversial legal document had put Jamie in charge of Britney’s estate, financial affairs and person life, and was implemented after the star suffered a very public breakdown in 2008.
The court hearing saw Judge Penny formally end the conservatorship Britney was in with Jamie, but left in place a separate conservatorship with an accountant chosen by Britney's legal team – John Zabel.
Mr Zabel will now oversee Britney’s £46 million fortune.
Britney’s conservatorship has been placed under close scrutiny, after the explosive New York Times documentary, Framing Britney Spears, detailed the terms of the legal agreement.
The #FreeBritney movement grew exponentially after the documentary aired, with the world watching the continued court proceedings which saw Britney fight for freedom.
Back in June, Britney herself testified in court, speaking in harrowing detail about what she claims she was subjected to.
As well as allegedly being kept in mental health facilities against her will, Britney says she was also forced to use birth control to prevent her from having a baby.
"I just want my life back," she said. "I truly believe this conservatorship is abusive."
Jamie Spears has repeatedly denied all allegations of abuse.
Lawyers for Britney have now also requested a new hearing to be held in the next month or so to rule on whether the conservatorship should be scrapped altogether.
