Britney Spears’ fiance Jason Trawick is officially her newest conservator, meaning he has the legal power to govern the pop star’s financial, legal and medical affairs.
Britney’s dad and conservator Jamie Spears filed the petition earlier this month, asking the court to add Jason as co-conservator. A judge agreed to the request.
Spears also wanted Jason, her former agent, on board as co-conservator.
After the hearing, Jamie was “thrilled,” and the move makes total sense, since the two are set to be married. Spears and Trawick got engaged in December.
The reason for the conservatorship is that after her meltdowns of 2007-2008, a judge determined she lacked the capacity to make these decisions herself.
By setting up the conservatorship, the judge protected B from some of the leeches that surrounded her and put the power in Jamie’s hands, and now Jason’s.
Ridiculous as it all seems now, Spears could file papers to end the conservatorship altogether, but she has not done so. So it can’t be all bad for her.
