The judge has officially ruled to terminate Britney Spears' oppressive conservatorship.

The highly-anticipated ruling comes 13 years after the Princess of Pop was first placed in the conservatorship following the "Circus" singer's struggles with her mental health amid her public break down.

While there had been growing concern regarding Britney's wellbeing for years, the case took a turn when the pop star broke her silence in June during her bombshell court testimony.

Appearing before the judge, the mother-of-two claimed her father's control was “abusive” — as he was the conservator of her estate before he was removed — and stated she was put on lithium and had an IUD that was not allowed to have removed, which prevented her from starting a family with her now-fiancé Sam Asghari.

Only days after her testimony that left the world speechless, Bessemer Trust —the wealth management firm set to be the co-conservator of Britney's estate alongside Jamie — manager Larry Rudolph, who oversaw Britney's career for more than 25 years, and her court-appointment attorney Samuel D. Ingham III all resigned.

In July, Britney saw another win when she was granted permission to choose her own lawyer, hiring legal powerhouse Mathew Rosengart — who promised to "move aggressively" to remove her estranged father from the conservatorship.

Despite Jamie's attempt at firing back at Rosengart after he filed an official request for the 69-year-old's removal, Britney's troubled dad agreed to step away from his responsibilities as conservator in August.

But Jamie made a major move in September when he filed a petition with the Los Angeles County Superior Court to end his daughter's conservatorship himself. Britney's lawyer later filed documents, doubling down on Jamie's insistence that the legal bind no longer serves a legitimate purpose for the 33-year-old and should immediately end.

On September 29, the judge granted Britney's request to remove Jamie as the conservator of her estate, with certified public accountant John Zabel to be appointed in his place.

Ever since the Grammy winner broke her silence over the summer, she hasn't been shy about going after her family for their alleged roles in the conservatorship.

From going before a judge to request to bring formal charges against her dad over his questionable actions as conservator, to recently claiming her mom Lynne Spears spearheaded the whole conservatorship, it's clear the blonde babe is ready to hold those closest to her accountable for the pain she endured for all those years.
