Lawyers of Britney Spears move to seal docs in conservatorship case
The serious medical issue of “Baby One More Time” singer Britney Spears that hinders her from making consistently sound decisions is said to be the reason her conservatorship case has lasted for four and a half years with no end in sight.
According to reports, the lawyers of pop star Britney Spears filed legal documents on Tuesday, urgently asking a judge to seal certain records in her conservatorship case. In the papers, lawyers for conservators Jamie Spears and Jason Trawick called the documents “highly sensitive,” adding “irreparable harm and immediate danger” would befall Britney if the documents are to be kept unsealed.
Back in 2008, the pop singer’s father, Jamie, was placed in charge of Britney’s legal and business affairs following her much-publicized breakdown and hospitalization. Britney Spears’ fiance Jason Trawick was made a co-conservator in April.
The move was reportedly part of the process to gradually transfer control of the estate back to the singer.
Several sources with firsthand knowledge of the conservatorship case told media outlet TMZ that the records are medical documents which outline the condition and treatment of Spears.
Reports said that the singer has a disorder affecting her personality which can have an effect on her state of mind. While she is doing “extremely well,” Britney Spears still needs the safety net of a conservatorship.
The conservators of the pop star allegedly have no plans of ending the conservatorship any time soon, and that the judge is completely down with it.
There are two components to the conservatorship case of Britney Spears — business and personal. The personal conservatorship allows Jamie Spears and Jason Trawick to make life decisions for Britney. On the other hand, the business conservatorship involves the management of the singer’s career and fortune. TMZ reports that the business side will most likely go on indefinitely because of its incredible success so far.
