EntertainmentBritney Spears’ Conservatorship Judge Orders Investigation Into Case, Advisors Will Be Under Microscope
Britney Spears' Conservatorship Gets New Status Hearing
Britney Spears' conservatorship will get a status hearing next month. According to court documents obtained by ET on Wednesday, a judge set the hearing for May 10. Spears will not need to be present. It is not noted why a new status hearing was set by the judge. Britney's father, Jamie Spears, has been her conservator since 2008, and he became her sole conservator this year after his former co-conservator, attorney Andrew Wallet, resigned in March.
The people responsible for controlling Britney Spears‘ life are now in the crosshairs of court investigators as the judge in her conservatorship case has ordered a thorough investigation of all the players who take part in planning her personal life, financial affairs and medical treatment.
According to documents obtained by The Blast, the judge in Britney’s conservatorship has ordered a probate court investigator to take a hard look at the singer’s case, and wants a court investigator’s report filed before Britney’s next hearing in September.
The move was quietly made days after Britney was ordered to undergo an expert evaluation to determine whether the restraints in her conservatorship should be loosened or modified.
Britney Spears 'Doing Really Well' a Week After Leaving Treatment, Source Says
The pop star was released from a mental health facility last Friday.
The job of a probate court investigator is to conduct extensive interviews with all the people involved in a conservatorship case, including guardians, conservators, doctors and even law enforcement officials who have had contact with the subject of the conservatorship.
The investigator will also be reviewing medical and financial records, including custody agreements and even contractual obligations … such as her Las Vegas residency.
It has long been debated whether Britney’s team, including her father Jamie Spears, were pushing Britney beyond her limits while signing her up for another round of performances in Sin City. Her manager has maintained that Britney was the one who wanted to keep working, but questions have been raised about her team’s handling of Britney’s fragile mental state while negotiating lucrative business deals.
Miley Cyrus Calls to ‘Free Britney!’ Spears at Memphis Concert
The “Free Britney!” cause can now claim a celebrity adherent. Miley Cyrus yelled out the slogan in Memphis while performing her decade-old hit “Party in the U.S.A.,” during the section that originally had Cyrus repeating the refrain, “And a Britney song was on…” It wasn’t immediately clear whether Cyrus was taking up the hashtag in earnest or with tongue in cheek, but it was certainly taken as a show of support by those perpetuating the conspiracy-theory-minded meme, which is based in the idea that Spears is being manipulated in her recent mental health treatment and longtime conservatorship.
After the court investigator has prepared their report, the judge will take into consideration the findings when deciding what the court feels is the best move for Britney going forward.
Britney’s mother, Lynne, has been staying with the singer ever since she made a move to join the conservatorship and take a greater role in caring for her daughter, but Britney’s father and other members of her advisors have not been seen with the star. Even more telling about the current situation was Britney arriving to court last week holding her mother’s hand for support.
Our sources within Britney’s team believe the judge in the conservatorship will see they have done everything in their power to help Britney. We’re told the main players in the conservatorship regularly report all the financial and medical updates to the court, and believe the track record of 11 years managing spears’ conservatorship will speak for itself.

Britney Spears May Never Perform Again, Manager Says.
In a new interview with TMZ, longtime Britney Spears manager Larry Rudolph says the singer may never perform again. The singer is scheduled to undergo psychological evaluation after postponing her Las Vegas residency in the wake of her father’s recent treatment for a ruptured colon. Larry Rudolph told the site, “As the person who guides her career — based on the information I and all of the professionals who work with her are being told on a need-to-know basis — from what I have gathered it’s clear to me she should not be going back to do this Vegas residency, not in the near future and possibly never again.
