Yesterday's court hearing passed without incident and Britney Spears is still officially under the control of her father, Jamie Spears.
The court extended the conservatorship through December 31. There's a status hearing October 28, when his status will be revisited.
The judge is leaving the option open to end the conservatorship early.
Jamie Spears, 56, was named temporary conservator of her affairs February 1 following Britney Spears' two forced hospitalizations in January.
"The extension of the conservatorship was at the request and suggestion of Britney's doctors," says a family source. "They've indicated that she has made great improvement, but it's a work in progress. Jamie Spears doesn't want the conservatorship to last a day longer than the doctors recommend."
Also Thursday, Spears' court-appointed attorney, Samuel D. Ingham III, did not seek to extend the restraining order against the singer's one-time pal Sam Lutfi, because the superstar has cut all ties with Lutfi anyway.
