Britney Spears 'Happy' She's Allowed To Drive Again | 22 Words

Britney Spears is finally allowed to drive again after years of being of stopped due to her conservatorship.

The thirty-nine-year-old singer has been unable to drive a vehicle since her conservatorship began back in 2007. However, since her ongoing case to end her conservatorship, Britney has been allowed back behind the wheel.

The pop star was granted permission to drive once again after her new lawyer, Mathew Rosengart, worked on having her no-driving ban lifted from her conservatorship.

Mathew Rosengart, a Hollywood lawyer and former federal prosecutor, was appointed Britney's new lawyer to represent her in her conservatorship after a judge approved Britney's request to hire her own lawyer following the resignation of her former court-appointed attorney Sam Ingham III.

Britney is said to be "very happy" about the opportunity to drive once again.

A source close to Britney spoke with People and explained: "Britney is very happy the conservatorship is now allowing her to drive."

They also revealed that she is "ecstatic and beyond grateful" for the support she is currently receiving.

"She is ecstatic and beyond grateful for all the help she is receiving right now," they said. "She likes the court developments so far. She is very hopeful that her new lawyer will be able to end the conservatorship."

It comes after Britney told Los Angeles judge, Brenda Penny, that she wants her father, Jamie Spears, charged with conservatorship abuse earlier this month.

During the hearing, which took place on July 14th, Britney claimed the conservatorship is "literally allowing my dad to ruin my life," Entertainment Weekly reports.

Calling her conservatorship "f***ing cruelty," she alleged that limitations like not being able to drink coffee were implemented in her life.

"I want to press charges against my father for conservatorship abuse," she said. Adding that she wants "an investigation into my dad."

Earlier this week, Rosengart said they are working "aggressively and expeditiously" to remove Jamie from the conservatorship.

A source also told People that Rosengart will ask the court to forgo a mental health evaluation of Britney, a step that is typically required to terminate a conservatorship.

The source also added: "She's really happy and excited that she has new representation. She feels like she's finally heading towards ending this."
