Court Expected to Prolong Jamie Spears' Legal Control

by at . Comments

A commissioner will consider extending Jamie Spears' temporary control over his daughter's estate in a hearing Thursday afternoon, amid signs that his approach is keeping Britney Spears both safe and out of trouble.

Britney's somewhat-estranged father has been overseeing her well-being and her enormous fortune since February 1, when L.A. Superior Court Commissioner Reva Goetz named him and attorney Andrew Wallet as co-conservators.

This temporarily gives them the right to control her finances, as well as hire bodyguards who protect Britney Spears and restrict her visitors.

So far, the co-conservators have done what they can to keep the pop star on a tight leash, forcing Britney to keep a (relatively) low profile - no pink wig, 4:30 a.m. Starbucks runs, twice weekly stays at the Four Seasons, etc.

Jamie Spears and Britney Spears have had a strained relationship for many years, but he seems to be genuinely trying to help his daughter get back on track.

Since taking over as co-conservator, Jamie has gotten a restraining order against Sam Lutfi, attempted to sack Britney's lawyers, and kept the star at home, save for some dance sessions and a shopping trip with mom Lynne.

While Britney Spears has been on her best behavior, sources say she's been texting friends from inside her house, complaining of boredom.

"She's getting proper medical care and has professional security. The chaos has been removed from the situation," says one insider, who anticipates that Goetz will prolong the temporary conservatorship at the hearing.

It is possible Spears could appear, but don't count on it. The 26-year-old will be represented by her court-appointed attorney, Samuel Ingham. Jamie Spears and Andrew Wallet will almost certainly be on hand today.

The hearing is set for 1:30 PST / 4:30 EST.
