Britney Spears just filed papers requesting her fiance as a co-conservator. Currently, her father Jamie Spears holds legal control over her multimillion-dollar fortune.
On Friday, the request to make Jason Trawick her co-conservator was made by Spears’ court-appointed attorney, E! News reports. Later this month, on April 25, that request will be considered by a judge. If fiancé Jason Trawick is named co-conservator, he will have control over her well-being, not her finances.
Spears and Trawick have been dating since 2009 and announced their engagement in December of last year. This legal action won’t speed up their matrimony. In fact, it was not Trawick’s idea at being co-conservator but Britney’s father.
Trawick was Spears’ manager from 2008 until earlier this year, when he stepped down from the position “to focus on their romantic relationship,” Rolling Stone reports. Meanwhile, Trawick plans to open an arts and entertainment division for Famos LLC, which includes partners Mick Jagger and Dave Stewart.
Since February of 2008 Britney has been under court supervision where Spears has met with the judge for updates on her health and finances. Her father stepped in for control in 2008 after months of questionable behavior. Following Spears’ divorce from Kevin Federline in 2006, she spent time in a drug rehabilitation facility, shaved her head and infamously hit an SUV with an umbrella outside Federline’s home.
After disastrous photo shoots, a lack luster performance at the MTV Video Music Awards and losing primary custody of her children, she was hospitalized in January of 2008. Britney’s news making headlines only continued with numerous paparazzi run-ins and continuous admittance into medical centers. With Trawick possibly becoming co-conservator one can only hope her troubled past is long behind her.
