Britney Spears' father Jamie has been suspended from his role as her conservator.
A judge in Los Angeles said Jamie Spears remaining in charge of his daughter’s money was no longer tenable.
The 69 year-old was ordered to turn over the relevant documents to John Zabel, a certified public accountant, who has been appointed temporary conservator of the singer’s $60 million estate.
The court also heard that the conrservatorship could be terminated by the end of the year.
Jamie has been the singer's conservator since 2008, after she suffered a series of mental health breakdowns.
The pair have been locked in an extensive legal battle, with Circus singer pleading to have him removed.
Spears was not in court while her father participated virtually and was represented by his lawyer, Vivian Thoreen.
Reacting to the news on social media, Spears said she was "on cloud 9 right now".
