The people responsible for controlling Britney Spears' life are now in the crosshairs of court investigators as the judge in her conservatorship case has ordered a thorough investigation of all the players who take part in planning her personal life, financial affairs and medical treatment.
According to documents obtained by The Blast, the judge in Britney's conservatorship has ordered a probate court investigator to take a hard look at the singer's case, and wants a court investigator's report filed before Britney's next hearing in September.
The move was quietly made days after Britney was ordered to undergo an expert evaluation to determine whether the restraints in her conservatorship should be loosened or modified.
The job of a probate court investigator is to conduct extensive interviews with all the people involved in a conservatorship case, including guardians, conservators, doctors and even law enforcement officials who have had contact with the subject of the conservatorship.
The investigator will also be reviewing medical and financial records, including custody agreements and even contractual obligations ... such as her Las Vegas residency.
It has long been debated whether Britney's team, including her father Jamie Spears, were pushing Britney beyond her limits while signing her up for another round of performances in Sin City. Her manager has maintained that Britney was the one who wanted to keep working, but questions have been raised about her team's handling of Britney's fragile mental state while negotiating lucrative business deals.
After the court investigator has prepared their report, the judge will take into consideration the findings when deciding what the court feels is the best move for Britney going forward.
Britney's mother, Lynne, has been staying with the singer ever since she made a move to join the conservatorship and take a greater role in caring for her daughter, but Britney's father and other members of her advisors have not been seen with the star. Even more telling about the current situation was Britney arriving to court last week holding her mother's hand for support.
Our sources within Britney's team believe the judge in the conservatorship will see they have done everything in their power to help Britney. We're told the main players in the conservatorship regularly report all the financial and medical updates to the court, and believe the track record of 11 years managing spears' conservatorship will speak for itself.
The investigation will also be interesting to the #FreeBritney movement, who will either be validated, or proven wrong when the findings are returned to the court.
