Britney Spears wants her father removed from her legal guardianship.

Britney Spears stepped forward on her way to free herself from what she calls a “bondage” situation.

The Superior Court of Los Angeles allowed the American singer to choose her own lawyer, a substantial change in the legal guardianship that has controlled her life for more than 13 years and which the singer wants to end.

The resolution came on Wednesday, the day the pop star addressed a court for the second time in less than a month.

From now on, Spears will be represented by Mathew Rosengart, a lawyer who has handled cases of celebrities such as Sean Penn or Steven Spielberg and whose first objective will be to remove Jamie Spears, father of the artist, from guardianship.
