A judge ended Britney Spears’s conservatorship, which controlled the pop star’s life and finances for almost 14 years, in a ruling on Friday.

“As of today, the conservatorship of the person and estate of Britney Jean Spears is hereby terminated,” Judge Brenda Penny of the Los Angeles Superior Court said in her ruling.

Spears’s father, James Spears, established the conservatorship in 2008, in the wake of a series of mental-health issues for the performer. Spears was 26 at the time.

However, petitions by fans to “free Britney” and a New York Times documentary on the subject in February sparked renewed interest in the conservatorship. Spears then spoke at a hearing on the conservatorship in June, telling a judge that she was “traumatized” by the control that her father and the conservatorship exercised over her life.

“The control he had over someone as powerful as me — he loved the control to hurt his own daughter 100,000 percent. He loved it,” Spears said.
