Judge Approves Britney Spears' Fiance Jason Trawick As Co-Conservator
Britney Spears' fiance Jason Trawick was given partial control over the singer's affairs by a Los Angeles judge on Wednesday.
The pop star's former manager joins her father Jamie as co-conservator, a move that brings Britney closer to getting back control of her own life.
Jason petitioned the court for his new duties earlier this month at the request of both Britney and her father; and according to People.com Jamie's attorney, Geraldine Wyle, told reporters after the hearing that he is very happy with the decision.
"Jamie's thrilled," she said. "It's all in the family."
Jamie was given control over all of the "Toxic" singer's dealings in 2008 after the pop princess suffered a public breakdown that ultimately led to her hospitalization.
The co-conservatorship that Jason assumes will not cover Britney's finances - just her daily well-being. Britney's father and attorney Andrew Wallet control the singer's estate.
Britney and Jason were engaged in December 2011. The couple are both expected to join Simon Cowell's The X Factor for its upcoming season - Britney is reportedly set to sign a $15 million contract to serve as a talent judge and perform on the show and Jason has already signed on as one of the show's producers.
