Britney’s wedding to her partner Sam Ashgari took place after she finished her conservatorship.
Conservatorship of 13 places Britney under the strict control of her father Jamie Spears and co-conservators since 2008.
It was originally put in place to protect Britney’s happiness after a very public breakup, but the deal means her father has complete control over everything she does from spending money to having more children and getting married.
Britney claims that her father’s extreme control over her even goes as far as deciding what color she paints the kitchen cabinets.
Following strict rules from the regulator, Britney revealed she was not allowed to get married again, which has delighted friends and fans alike as she is now married to Sam.
It is understood that Britney’s parents Lynne Spears, 67, and Jamie Spears, 69, were not coming at the wedding, as well as sister Jamie Lynn Spears, 31, was said to be absent from the event.
