Advocates of Britney Spears have anxiously anticipated today - this exact Tuesday afternoon - for over 12 years. April 21st was hoped to be the day the pop star was finally "set free."
If you're just joining the story: In early 2008, Spears was placed under her father's care via an emergency conservatorship order. Mr. Jamie Spears then immediately became his adult daughter's legal guardian - a "deal" which included full control over her medical decisions, career moves, and massive estate (to name a few).
On Monday, an extra-perky Spears was seen twirling around her Calabasas home in a pink sports bra while listening to George Michael's 'Freedom' - and the Britney Army was fully convinced that this Instagram update was a symbol of Spears' own excitement for her court appointment this afternoon.
