Britney Spears has won a major victory in her long battle against her conservatorship.

The music icon will be allowed to hire her own legal team, a US judge has ruled.

According to reports from Los Angles where the case is taking place, Ms Spears can now appoint a lawyer of her choosing after Judge Brenda's decision.

During the hearing on July 14, Britney told the court she wants her father Jamie Spears to be "charged with conservatorship abuse".

The latest ruling comes three weeks after Britney gave a half an hour speech to the court – arguing that she should be able to regain control of her personal and professional life.

Audio of the Hold It Against Me singer's plea sent shockwaves around the world due to her explosive claims.

Britney said she wanted to 'sue my family for what they have done to me' when talking about the 13 year long conservatorship.

She added she didn't think she owed anyone anything.

One of the most shocking claims by Britney was that the team around her took measures to stop her conceiving a child.
