Britney Spears, 39, is bound to be celebrating right now as news made the rounds that her father Jamie Spears, 69 - who is alleged to have put the international pop star through "torture" for the last 13 years - is set to be FINALLY stepping down from controlling the controversial conservatorship.

According to reports and the Aug. 12 court filing he submitted, 69-year-old Jamie Spears agreed to remove himself as conservator of her estate, a position he has held since her conservatorship began in 2008, "when the time is right" to avoid a "battle" with Britney.

"It is highly debatable whether a change in conservator at this time would be in Ms. Spears' best interests," his response reads. "Nevertheless, even as Mr. Spears is the unremitting target of unjustified attacks, he does not believe that a public battle with his daughter over his continuing service as her conservator would be in her best interests."

The continues, "So even though he must contest this unjustified Petition for his removal, Mr. Spears intends to work with the Court and his daughter's new attorney to prepare for an orderly transition to a new conservator."

With the help of her new lawyer, the 39-year-old pop star could be finally free of Jamie's legal control over her career!

However, the matter is expected to be further discussed and potentially finalised at her Sept. 29 court hearing.
