Britney Spears has spent the final three days blissfully glad following the termination of her 13-year authorized conservatorship.

“What an amazing weekend … I felt like I was on cloud 9 the whole time !!!” Spears wrote Monday on Instagram. “I actually got my first glass of champagne at the most beautiful restaurant I’ve ever seen last night !!!! I’m celebrating my freedom and my B day for the next two months !!!!!!!!!!! I mean after 13 years … I think I’ve waited long ENOUGH !!!! I’m so happy my lawyer Mathew Rosengart came into my life when he did … he has truly turned my life around … I’m forever thankful for that !!!! What a sight seeing so many people celebrating my victory …. I love my fans so much … so thank you !!!!⁣”

Spears has quite a lot of well-known followers cheering her on, too, together with Lady Gaga, Dionne Warwick, Jameela Jamil and Andy Cohen.

So what’s subsequent for the celebrity now that she’s free? As her lawyer mentioned instantly after Judge Brenda Penny made her ruling in a Los Angeles courthouse, “What’s next for Britney, and this is the first time this could be said for about a decade, is up to one person: Britney.”

Here are some things we all know are on the horizon:

Planning her wedding ceremony

When Spears gave a stunning testimony in courtroom in June, she flat-out mentioned that she want to “get married and have a child.” And she’s shifting forward on that entrance.

She and Sam Asghari, the non-public coach and actor she has dated for 4 years, introduced their engagement in September, lower than every week after her father, Jamie Spears, filed a petition to finish her conservatorship. “She would love a beach ceremony at a tropical destination,” a supply informed People on the time. “It will be a small wedding.”

Then, simply final week, Spears mentioned that designer Donatella Versace — a longtime pal — is already making the bridal costume.

On the household entrance, Spears had mentioned in courtroom that she had been compelled to make use of contraception, however that clearly will not be the case any longer.

Making her personal medical choices

Speaking of, Spears may also now not need to take something she would not need to take, and that features the antidepressant lithium. The singer mentioned in a June listening to that it made her really feel “drunk” and unable to have a dialog. But no extra.

Harry Nelson, the founder and managing companion of Los Angeles-based regulation agency Nelson Hardiman, tells Yahoo Entertainment that, with no conservatorship over her particular person, Spears is free to make all her personal well being selections.

Driving every time and wherever she desires

Spears was reportedly thrilled to be driving once more, as soon as her conservatorship allowed her to take action, over the summer season, for the primary time in years. (MTV’s 2008 For the Record documentary on Spears, filmed in the beginning of the conservatorship, contained a scene that confirmed her explaining that the final time she had felt free was when she had gotten to drive her automobile lots.) So, in fact, she spent her first free weekend cruising round by herself, too. According to TMZ, at one level, Spears drove her Mercedes to Catch restaurant in West Hollywood, the place she had a date with Asghari.

That goes for procuring, too

Remember in July when Spears wrote about having splurged for brand new sneakers? Spears controls her personal funds now, so she will stay up for as many new kicks as she’d like. Spears’s appreciable belongings at the moment are being transferred from the conservatorship right into a belief that she controls. 

Nelson explains: “A trust is a highly flexible legal structure set up by a person to protect property assets. In setting up a trust, Britney can decide who the trustees of the trust, who will manage the trust, are, and who the beneficiaries will be. She can name herself as a trustee and a beneficiary, designate other trustees or beneficiaries, and change trustees and beneficiaries over time. She can set up the rules by which the trust is managed. Absent some dispute between trustees or beneficiaries, the trust is easy to manage. This is in sharp contrast to conservatorship, which is governed by the court and cannot be set up, amended, or removed without court approval. Conservatorships are only necessary when the person who is the subject won’t cooperate and is putting themselves at risk. The trust structure will allow Britney to protect herself, her children, and other loved ones, with the flexibility to make the structure work for her needs.”

Recording and performing — if and when she feels prefer it

While the “Stronger” singer’s longtime supervisor, Larry Rudolph, stop in July, citing his shopper’s plan to retire, the reality is not so easy. A supply informed Page Six that it had “never been her intention to step away from her career altogether.” Adding that folks round her have been “putting words in her mouth.”

The supply added, “The only thing she’s said is that she would not work again under her father’s control, but now that he’s out as her conservator, she’s willing and even excited to get back to it one day.”

However, the music is “not her top priority.”
