Britney Spears' father Jamie Spears immediately ousted from her conservatorship

For the first time since 2008, Britney Spears will be without her father’s oversight, after a Los Angeles court suspended the conservatorship with immediate effect.

Britney Spears' father, Jamie Spears, has been ousted from her conservatorship, following a bitter legal battle that has played out since the pop star was placed under the court-ordered arrangement in 2008.

A court in Los Angeles ruled that Spears’ father will no longer serve as the conservator of his daughter’s estate, immediately removing him from the control of her finances.

The next hearing in the case will be in November, to determine whether the conservatorship will be ended entirely.

Britney's attorney argued in court that her father is “a cruel, toxic, abusive man,” and said that it was long past time to remove him, adding Britney Spears deserves to wake up tomorrow without her father as her conservator.

The court has appointed John Zabel, an accountant, to assume temporarily control the estate until the next steps are determined.

The removal of Jamie Spears is the most significant development in the singer's ongoing conservatorship saga, which over the past few months has played out in the public eye.

As the case began to play out in the public eye over the past few months, interest skyrocketed to an all-time high, dominating headlines around the world with a rallying cry to #FreeBritney.

On June 23, the pop star gave a scathing testimony to the court, the first time in 13 years that she publicly addressed her 13-year conservatorship, where she told the judge her conservatorship was “abusive” and asked for it to be terminated without further evaluation.

After more than a decade of maintaining that she needs to be held under a conservatorship, Spears’ father abruptly agreed to step down from the conservatorship
