A judge has ordered that Britney Spears remain under a personal conservatorship for at least a few more months, despite speculation she may be moving to loosen the restrictions currently in place.
According to new legal documents, obtained by The Blast, earlier this month an LA County judge ordered the conservatorship extended several more months while they figure out what is best for the pop star.
As we reported, Britney and her parents have been back in court working out the specifics in her conservatorship, including driving, and the issues with her father Jaime.
“The temporary conservatorship of the person of Britney Jean Spears is extended to April 30, 2020. New letters of temporary conservatorship of the person shall be issued to Jodi Pais Montgomery. which shall expire on April 30, 2020, or upon earlier issuance of Letters to a general conservator of the person of Britney Jean Spears,” the order reads.
Jodi Montogmery was given temporary control over Britney Spears after her father Jaime allegedly got into a physical altercation with one of her sons.
At the end of last year, Jaime Spears stepped down as a conservator of his daughter’s affairs, citing “personal health issues.” But, we broke the story, Jaime was investigated by the Ventura County Sheriff’s Department for allegedly “violently shaking” one of his grandsons.
Jaime was not charged with a crime after the Ventura County District Attorney’s Office said there was insufficient evidence.
It is unclear if Britney is trying to fully get out of the conservatorship, as we reported, her court-appointed attorney told the court she is fine with being under the conservatorship for now. It seems she wants some of the restrictions changed.
Britney has been under the conservatorship since 2008 and did very well until last year when she was admitted to a mental health facility. At the time, it was reported, a medication change caused the pop star to become ill and forced her to cancel her Las Vegas residency.
Members of the #FreeBritney movement have taken to social media to point out their belief the pop star is being unfairly controlled by the conservatorship. The group has even showed up to the courthouse on multiple occasions to protest the hearings.
A hearing is set for the end of the temporary order…stay tuned.
