LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Pop star Britney Spears’ personal and business affairs will remain under the control of her father and an attorney who have been her conservators since early 2008 when her life was spinning out of control, a judge ruled on Thursday.
Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Reva Goetz met with Spears in court chambers and soon after made the ruling that left Jamie Spears and attorney Andrew Wallet in charge of the “Circus” singer’s affairs.
The pair took control of the 28-year-old singer’s legal and other issues following several events in 2007 that indicated her life was spiraling downward. She spent some time in drug and alcohol rehab and early in 2008 was hospitalized for psychiatric observation.
But the singer who has sold more than 100 million records worldwide made a comeback with her 2008 album “Circus” which was followed by a successful tour. This week she was the subject of an episode of hit TV musical “Glee,” but Spears has adopted a low profile in public.
