Jamie Spears will remain in control of his troubled daughter Britney Spears’ finances and other aspects of the struggling star’s life until July 31.
Los Angeles Superior Court Commissioner Reva Goetz extended the temporary legal conservatorship that had been ordered on February 4, during Spears’ epic meltdown, trip to the hospital and stint in a psychiatric facility.
The order is effectively a seal of approval for her dad, Jamie Spears, who has been lauded by all parties involved for helping settle Britney the heck down.
Sources say the judge and conservators are open to ending the conservatorship earlier than July 31, if Britney Spears’ mental state sufficiently improves further.
Jamie Spears has been overseeing his 26-year-old daughter’s well-being and her estimated $100 million fortune since February 1, when Goetz named him and his attorney, Andrew Wallet, temporary co-conservators.
This gives them the right to employ bodyguards and restrict her visitors, which they have certainly done, getting a restraining order on Sam Lutfi.
A source close to Britney Spears says she’s okay with her dad in control.
On February 23, she was allowed to spend time with her sons Sean Preston, 2, and Jayden James, 17 months, for the first time since her January 3 meltdown and standoff with the police. She’s had regular visits since.
Rather than clubbing with no underwear, Britney has been laying low, save for some trips to the dance studio and out for dinner – usually with her father present.
Britney and Adnan Ghalib appear to be still together, although when they’ve hung out, it’s been behind the guarded gates of her Summit Circle compound.
