Britney Spears has celebrated the end of her father Jamie's conservatorship over her by posing naked on social media.

Many of the 'Toxic' singer's personal and professional affairs have been overseen by her dad since 2008.

However, in a stinging court testimonial in June, Spears claimed she had been drugged, stopped from having children and forced to perform against her will while under the conservatorship.

"No photo edits"

As news of Jamie Spears' suspension emerged, Britney took to Instagram to post the nude photographs - the message of which we're interpreting as 'I can do what I want now."

Britney's friend Paris Hilton commented underneath: "Love seeing you so happy and free! You deserve it! Love you."

In another video of herself taking a flying lesson posted yesterday, Britney said she was "on cloud nine."

Via a statement issued to CNN via his lawyer, Jamie Spears said yesterday: "Mr. Spears loves his daughter Britney unconditionally. For thirteen years, he has tried to do what is in her best interests, whether as a conservator or her father.

"For anyone who has tried to help a family member dealing with mental health issues, they can appreciate the tremendous amount of daily worry and work this required. For Mr. Spears, this also meant biting his tongue and not responding to all the false, speculative, and unsubstantiated attacks on him by certain members of the public, media, or more recently, Britney's own attorney."

"These facts make the outcome of yesterday's hearing all the more disappointing, and frankly, a loss for Britney. Respectfully, the court was wrong to suspend Mr. Spears, put a stranger in his place to manage Britney's estate, and extend the very conservatorship that Britney begged the court to terminate earlier this summer."
