Britney Spears Legal Team Cites "Medical Issue" as Basis for Conservatorship

by at . Comments

Something is wrong with Britney Spears.

Observers have been saying this about the singer for years, dating way back to 2007 when she shaved her head and attacked the paparazzi with an umbrella - but now actual legal representatives for the superstar are making it official.

Britney's lawyers filed documents in court today relating to her four-and-a-half year conservatorship, requesting that certain records remain sealed because they are "highly sensitive" and would cause "irreparable harm and immediate danger" if released.

Sources tell TMZ the documents in question are of medical nature and they concern Spears' condition and treatment.

Yes, Britney is doing "extremely well" these days, the insiders confirm, but her unidentified disorder can affect her personality and state of mind.

As a result, there are no plans to end the conservatorship, which consists of Jamie Spears and Jason Trawick sharing responsibility for Britney's personal life, while a more general business conservatorship handles the star's fortune and career opportunities.
