·4-min read

Dontella Versace declared it “Britneypendence Day” as she led stars congratulating Britney Spears on the termination of her conservatorship.

The Baby One More Time singer regained control of her life and career after a judge dissolved the controversial legal arrangement after 13 years during a court hearing in Los Angeles on Friday.

Britney had been fighting to end the conservatorship that she was placed under in 2008 after a public struggle with her mental health.

After news from the court hearing broke, many stars on social media rushed to congratulate Britney on finally being free.

Fashion designer Donatella wrote on Instagram: “Freedom is a human right. My heart is smiling for you, Britney. Congratulations on your regained and deserved emancipation.

“I love you, your fierce fans love you and the world NEEDS your brilliance. Happy Britneypendence day!”

Cher tweeted: “Whoooooooa. She’s free, free, free, freeeeeeee!!! Free as a [bird].”

Britney’s friend Paris Hilton also shared a photo of them together on Twitter, writing: “I’m so happy that this day has finally come. This moment is so long overdue. @BritneySpears is finally free!!!

“You’re the most resilient, kind and inspiring soul. We all love you so so much! Your best days are yet to come! #FreedBritney.”

Former X Factor contestants Jedward, who famously covered Britney’s hit Oops I Did It Again on the ITV talent show in 2009, had even jetted to Los Angeles to be outside the courthouse where the hearing was taking place.

The twins – otherwise known as John and Edward Grimes – shared a video of them joining in the jubilant celebrations in the street after the ruling was announced.

A host of other famous names from across the showbiz world also shared their congratulations on social media:

Britney herself also took to social media, thanking her fans and hailing the end of the conservatorship as the “best day ever”.

She posted on Instagram: “Good God I love my fans so much it’s crazy !!! I think I’m gonna cry the rest of the day !!!! Best day ever … praise the Lord … can I get an Amen ????”

She then added the hashtag #FreedBritney.

She also posted a photo posing in a yellow dress – that has since been deleted – adding: “I can’t freaking believe it !!!! Again … best day ever!!!!”

Her fiancé Sam Asghari also posted a “freedom” logo, writing: “History was made today. Britney is Free!”
