Lady Gaga, Cher and Bebe Rexha are among musicians who have shown their support for Britney Spears after she was freed from a 13-year conservatorship that controlled her life.

On Friday (November 12), a judge ruled that the pop singer’s legal guardianship would come to an end shortly after her father, Jamie Spears, requested “immediate termination” of his daughter’s conservatorship earlier this month. It had been in place since 2008.

Taking to social media on Saturday (November 13), Gaga wrote: “I have loved Britney Spears her whole career. I looked up to her, admired her strength—she empowered so many people and still does.  

“I couldn’t be more happy for you today. You never deserved what happened, Thank God 4 today, you’re a superstar and a super-human being.”

Cher showed her delight at the news on Twitter, writing “WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOA, SHES FREEE,FREE,FREE,” sandwiched between celebratory emojis and followed by a series of doves.

On Instagram Bebe Rexha shared a picture of herself with the pop singer and recalled meeting her for the first time. “Congratulations queen. I remember how nervous I was meeting you my first time. I couldn’t stand still,” she wrote.

“Your body guard let us into your dressing room and the first thing you told me was how amazing of a songwriter I am. It touched my soul. My icon that I watched and was inspired by all my life told me I was an amazing songwriter. That was a milestone moment. I am happy you are free but now we must protect you at all costs.”

Iggy Azalea also showed her support for the singer, writing on Twitter: “I don’t think there’s a person alive on this planet happier than Britney Spears today & the thought of that really makes me smile.”

‘Girls Just Want To Have Fun’ singer Cyndi Lauper chimed in with a “congrats” for Spears.

Dionne Warwick, who has become something of a Twitter celebrity as well as being a legendary pop and soul singer, said: “I will see you all at @DOCNYCfest tonight. However, today is also a day to celebrate the liberation of Britney Spears.”

Missy Elliott also threw her support behind the star, replying directly to her on Twitter: “May Blessings continue to flow for you! And nothing but Happiness Love & Peace of mind from here on out.”

Shortly after news broke of Spears being freed from her conservatorship, fans celebrated outside the courthouse with cheers and confetti.

​​Spears replied to a video of the celebrations writing: “Good God I love my fans so much it’s crazy !!! I think I’m gonna cry the rest of the day !!!! Best day ever … praise the Lord … can I get an Amen.”

In June Britney Spears delivered a statement in court about the harmful impact the conservatorship was having on her. “I deserve to have a life. I’ve worked my whole life,” she said.

“I deserve to have the same rights as anybody does by having a child, a family, any of those things, and more so.”

She also revealed that she had an IUD that she said she was not allowed to remove. “I wanted to take the IUD out so I could start trying to have another baby. But this so-called team won’t let me go to the doctor to take it out because they don’t want me to have children – any more.”

Jamie Spears was suspended from the conservatorship on September 30.
