Britney Spears’ fiancé, Jason Trawick, has been granted his wish to become her co-conservator. The talent agent’s request was approved by a Los Angeles judge Wednesday (April 25).
Spears’ former agent-turned-paramour petitioned the Los Angeles Superior Court earlier this month to become the pop star’s co-conservator. He will share the responsibility with Spears’ father, Jamie Spears, who has maintained legal control of his daughter since February 2008.
According to People magazine, Spears’ father is delighted with the court’s decision. “Jamie’s thrilled,” attorney Geraldine Wyle told reporters following the hearing, referring to Spears’ father. “It’s all in the family.”
Wyle also made a point to clarify the fact that the request to add Trawick as co-conservator came at Britney’s request, not her father’s. The 41-year-old will not have control of Spears’ multimillion-dollar estate or career but will share responsibility with Jamie Spears for the singer’s “general well-being,” including decisions regarding food, clothing and medical care.
Jamie Spears took steps to gain legal control over his daughter’s affairs in 2008 following a spate of increasingly erratic behavior that culminated in Britney’s brief stay at UCLA Medical Center. In the years since, Spears has appeared to get her life solidly back on track, releasing two multiplatinum albums, launching two successful world tours and regaining custody of her young sons, Sean Preston and Jayden James.
The current status of Spears’ conservatorship is reportedly more of a “formality” than anything else.
Trawick, Spears’ former agent and co-star in her “Criminal” video, proposed to Spears in December on his 40th birthday with a four-carat diamond ring designed by Neil Lane.
