The engagement comes shortly after the news that Britney's father Jamie Spears has filed a petition to end the conservatorship that she has been under since 2008.

The singer spoke publicly in court about how she considers the arrangement to be "abuse", and stated that she has an IUD stopping her from getting pregnant that she isn't allowed to remove.

Since then, Britney and her new lawyer, Mathew Rosengart, have tried to bring an immediate end to the conservatorship. This petition from her father could mean that her goal could well be achieved, although it's not officially ending just yet.

Jamie's primary attorney Vivian Thoreen said in a statement: "As Mr Spears has said, again and again, all he wants is what is best for his daughter. If Ms Spears wants to terminate the conservatorship and believes that she can handle her own life, Mr Spears believes that she should get that chance."
