Britney Spears' father, lawyer to retain control of her affairs, report says
Britney Spears' father and a lawyer, her conservators since 2008, when she was hospitalized for psychiatric observation following months of turmoil, will continue to control her personal and business affairs, according to a Los Angeles judge, the Los Angeles Times said.
The 28-year-old pop singer has in recent months managed to rebuild an image many thought was forever tarnished by rehab stints for substance abuse, excessive partying and a now-infamous head-shaving incident from 2007.Spears, who has sold more than 100 million records, launched a successful "Circus" tour and recently guest-starred on Glee, earning the FOX musical sitcom its highest ratings yet.
Her father Jamie Spears and attorney Andrew Wallet took control of her legal and financial issues following the 2007 events.
Conservatorships are granted if people are deemed unable to take care of themselves or their affairs. Under the original conservatorship plan, Britney Spears' father decides who can visit his daughter, hires and retains caretakers and security guards and has access to all of her medical records.
