Britney Spears thanked fans on Twitter for their support following a decision by the judge overseeing her conservatorship case that she could choose her own lawyer.

“Coming along, folks ... coming along!!!!! New with real representation today ... I feel GRATITUDE and BLESSED !!!! 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 !!!!!” she tweeted on Wednesday evening.

The judge ruled on Wednesday that she would be able to choose her own lawyer, the latest in a legal saga after the pop star’s stunning testimony in June where she demanded an end to the legal arrangement she called "abusive."


The pop star has indicated that she wants former federal prosecutor Mathew S. Rosengart to represent her. 

“This is not working. We know that. The goal is to end the conservatorship,” Rosengart said during the hearing, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

“We will be filing as quickly as possible to get Mr. Spears removed from the conservatorship,” Rosengart added. “If he loves his daughter it is time to step aside and move on so she can have her life back.”

Samuel Ingham, Spear’s court-appointed lawyer, resigned earlier this month. The wealth management company appointed as co-conservator of Spears's estate, Bessemer Trust, has also resigned.

During a hearing at a Los Angeles courtroom on Wednesday, Spears said that she was scared of her father and said the conservatorship "is allowing my dad to ruin my life,” according to NPR.
