Conservatorship began in 2008
There were celebrations outside an L.A. court yesterday, after a judge ruled Britney Spears' father should no longer have control of her finances.
Jamie Spears has been her conservator since 2008 - he has now been suspended from the arrangement.
Judge Brenda Penny ordered the 69-year-old to turn over the relevant documents to a certified public accountant, who has been appointed as temporary conservator of the singer's $60 million estate.
The hearing in LA heard the situation now reflected a "toxic environment".
The entire legal agreement could be scrapped by the end of the year.
The 39 year-old's lawyer called it a "monumental day" for the pop superstar.
Speaking outside the court, lawyer Mathew Rosengart said it will bring to light the wider issue of conservatorships:

Singer & actor Bette Midler has been showing her support on Twitter:
