Britney Spears took to social media Monday to thank fans and supporters of the #FreeBritney movement days after a judge removed her father, Jamie Spears, as the conservator of her estate.

Catch up quick: Spears has lived under a conservatorship headed by her father since 2008, enabling him to exercise control over her finances, health and whereabouts.

  • The singer first raised concerns about her father as early as 2014, and called the conservatorship "abusive." She had previously said she was "extremely scared" of her father.

What she's saying: "#FreeBritney movement … I have no words … because of you guys and your constant resilience in freeing me from my conservatorship … my life is now in that direction !!!!!" Spears wrote.

  • "I cried last night for two hours cause my fans are the best and I know it …" she added.
