Britney Spears couldn't help but cartwheel with joy after getting a new lawyer to fight to end her conservatorship.

The 'Toxic' singer, 39, was delighted after a judge gave her the right to chose her own lawyer to end the conservatorship that her father has controlled since 2008, per BBC.

Britney's new lawyer, former federal prosecutor Mathew Rosengart, wants her father Jamie Spears removed from controlling her $60 million estate as he has done for the past 13 years.

Addressing the court by phone for a second time, Britney said on Wednesday, July 14: "I'm here to get rid of my dad and charge him with conservatorship abuse. This conservatorship has allowed [him] to ruin my life."

Now, to celebrate being given the opportunity to control her own legal affairs for the first time since 2008 and replace Samuel Ingham, the court-appointed lawyer, she took to Instagram to share her joy.

"Thank you to my fans who are supporting me … You have no idea what it means to me be supported by such awesome fans !!!! God bless you all !!!!!

"Pssss this is me celebrating by horseback riding and doing cartwheels today !!!! [sic]"

Britney previously told the courtroom how her conservatorship resulted in extreme abuse and that she was put on the drug lithium "out of nowhere", per Independent.

She told a Los Angeles courtroom on June 23: "Lithium is very very strong, it's a completely different medication to what I was used to. You can go mentally impaired if you take too much or stay on it longer than five months.

"I felt drunk, I really couldn't even [look after myself], I couldn't even have a conversation with my mom and dad really about anything."

"I am traumatized," she said, speaking to the court remotely. "I just want my life back."

As well as claiming to be put on necessary medication, Britney said that she was forced to stay on intravenous contraception so that she couldn't have another child.

"I want to be able to get married and have a baby," Spears said, per Independent. "I have an IUD inside of myself so that I don't get pregnant, but [my team doesn't] want me to have any more children."

She said that the abuse she has suffered has had a profound impact on her mental health.

"I am not happy, I can't sleep," Britney revealed. "I'm so angry, it's insane. And I'm depressed. The last time I spoke to you [the judge]… made me feel like I was dead. I am telling you again because I am not lying… so maybe you can understand the depth and the degree and the damages… I deserve changes."

Britney reiterated her claims that she was forced to take medication against her will during yesterday's court appearance, saying: "I think they were trying to kill me."
