Papa Spears is handing over the keys to Brit-Brit: Britney Spears’ fiancÃ© Jason Trawick has been approved as the singer’s co-conservator.
The “Toxic” hitmaker and her finances have been under the legal control of dad Jamie since she suffered a breakdown in 2008, but now Jason will be able to have a say about the star’s well-being, including where she lives and her medical care. Spears’ father, Jamie, and her lawyer, Andrew Wallet, will continue to control the singer’s financial and business affairs.
Los Angeles probate attorney Jeffrey S. Cohen tells People magazine:
“This is a very unusual situation, because generally you don’t see conservatees get married. This could be a sign that the couple’s wedding is around the corner. This is probably a compromise between Britney, her father and Trawick to get the marriage off on the right foot. Obviously, her future husband needs to have a say in her well-being.”
