Yesterday’s ruling was the latest in an ongoing battle to end Britney’s conservatorship, which has allowed Jamie to control her personal decisions and estate for more than 13 years.

The singer’s attorneys appointed John Zabel, a certified public accountant, to replace Jamie as a temporary conservator, until the next hearing on November 12, when the judge is expected to decide whether to terminate the conservatorship for good.

While Britney’s legal team pushes to end the conservatorship in court, #FreeBritney advocates are doing the same through in-person demonstrations and online. Their celebratory social media posts following Jamie’s suspension surfaced alongside others from artists like Cher, Bette Midler, Dionne Warwick, and more.

“Thank God,” Cher tweeted, saying she has prayed for this outcome “[for] years,” and noting that she’s “more than thrilled” for Britney.

Free Britney!!!! I’m so thrilled to see that freedom and hopefully justice is finally coming to this brilliant lady. Oh and the Jenny Eliscu Netflix documentary was so well done and hopefully helped support her at this very important time.

Britney, meanwhile, posted an Instagram video of herself steering an airplane for the first time and captioned it, “On cloud 9 right now,” which some people interpreted as her response to Jamie’s suspension.
