LOS ANGELES (AP) - The arrangement that puts Britney Spears'
father in control of her personal and financial affairs has been
made permanent by a court commissioner.
Los Angeles Superior Court Commissioner Reva Goetz granted Jamie
Spears a permanent conservatorship over his daughter on Tuesday
afternoon. A court-appointed attorney for Spears says the singer
does not object to the arrangement.
The move came after a lengthy closed-chambers meeting, and
follows a recent medical evaluation of the 26-year-old singer.
Jamie Spears has had control over his daughter's affairs since
February after she had several high-profile incidents of erratic
behavior and a pair of hospitalizations.
