    18 Celebrities React To The End Of Britney Spearsโ€™ Conservatorship

    Lady Gaga's tweet has me sobbing at 10 a.m.

    Freedom for Britney Spears has finally arrived โ€” and it's about damn time!

    Yesterday, the court terminated Britney's conservatorship โ€” which had ceded personal and financial control of the superstar's life to her father and his team for 13 years โ€” effective immediately.

    While the 39-year-old had always been fighting against the conservatorship behind closed doors, it was her court appearance in the summer โ€” where she described the abuse she faced โ€” that bolstered an already simmering #FreeBritney fan movement.

    In celebration of the good news, Britney took to Instagram to show love for her fans. "I think Iโ€™m gonna cry the rest of the day !!!! Best day ever โ€ฆ praise the Lord โ€ฆ can I get an Amen ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผโ˜€๏ธ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ ???? #FreedBritney," she wrote.

    Fans were joined by celebs who were also overjoyed by the news (well, to clarify, I think we can say the celebs are also fans, because, I mean, it's Britney). Paris Hilton commented on the video above with a simple "Yasssss ๐Ÿฅณ๐Ÿฅณ๐Ÿฅณ๐Ÿฅณ๐Ÿ˜."

    On Twitter, Paris posted a photo of the two in a car circa the mid-aughts (very reminiscent of the Holy Trinity photo, but sans Lindsay Lohan) and expanded on her congratulations. "Iโ€™m so happy that this day has finally come," she wrote. "This moment is so long overdue. @BritneySpears is finally free!!!ย [...] Youโ€™re the most resilient, kind and inspiring soul. We all love you so so much! Your best days are yet to come! ๐Ÿ’•#FreedBritney."

    Lady Gaga wrote on Twitter, "I have loved @britneyspears her whole career. I looked up to her, admired her strengthโ€”she empowered so many people and still does. I couldnโ€™t be more happy for you today. You never deserved what happened, Thank God 4 today โค๏ธ youโ€™re a superstar and a super-human being."
