Conservatorship Hearing Thursday




A hearing concerning the temporary conservatorship of Britney Spears will be held in Los Angeles Superior Court on Thursday, which could affect whether the pop star will remain legally under the care of her father and a lawyer.

A judge ruled Britney was to be placed under a temporary conservatorship, overseen by her father Jamie Spears and attorney Andrew Wallet, back in February. The ruling allowed Jamie Spears and Wallet to make decisions, including those on financial matters, on the singer's behalf.

Additionally, a temporary restraining order was filed by the conservatorship against Britney's friend, Sam Lutfi. The order was eventually served and extended.

Lawyers for the conservatorship will meet in court on Thursday during a morning session. It was unclear if Britney (who was recently spotted in Cabo San Lucas) would attend the hearing.

On Tuesday, a source told X-17 Online that the temporary conservatorship may come to a close, but the move seems unlikely as Britney's recent custody deal with Kevin Federline is said to weigh heavily on the conservatorship and her father's role in her life.

An afternoon session will address the temporary restraining order against Lutfi and whether to make it permanent.

According to E! News, Britney's former constant companion, who has been unable to visit the pop star since February 1, will fight making the order permanent.

"Sam won't sign a permanent stay-away," a source close to Lutfi said.
