The Word: Britney Spears gives up rights to dad and fiance
In a sad state of affairs — for Britney Spears, at least — a Los Angeles court has approved a request to add fiance Jason Trawick as a co-conservator in charge of her finances and decisions, according to TMZ. Trawick, along with Spears’ father, will be responsible for all decisions pertaining to her personal life.
Spears has been under the conservatorship since 2008. It was originally reported that her father had requested Trawick be added, but it turns out it was the singer herself. A lawyer for her father says her client is “thrilled” with it, saying, “It’s all in the family.”
Look, it’s apparent that Spears is still kind of a sick puppy and needs the guidance to make sure she doesn’t have another spectacular flameout during which she shaves her head and starts smashing cars with an umbrella and/or loses all of her money. But still: Doesn’t the idea of a successful 30-year-old woman giving up her rights to two men sound downright medieval?
