Britney Spears adds fiance Jason Trawick to conservatorship
30-year-old singer's medical care, trade secrets and personal decisions shared with dad
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Britney Spears has requested that her fiance join her father in decision-making duties involving the pop superstar's conservatorship, court filings show.
The request was made by Spears' court-appointed attorney on Friday and will be considered by a judge later this month.
If approved, Jason Trawick would join Jamie Spears in having control over the singer's major personal decisions, including medical care.
Trawick has served as an agent for Spears, 30, and appeared in court with his future wife last month.
Superior Court Judge Reva Goetz closed the proceedings after attorneys handling the conservatorship said they intended to discuss the singer's medical care and trade secrets.
Jamie Spears also attended the hour-long hearing and hugged his daughter in the courtroom after it concluded.
The filing by Spears' court-appointed attorney, Samuel Ingham III, offers few details. According to the petition, Spears will attend the April 25 hearing during which the request to appoint Trawick as co-conservator will be considered.
Spears has been under court supervision since February 2008 after Jamie Spears stepped in after months of erratic behavior by his daughter.
He and an attorney have had control over the singer's personal and financial affairs since then, and Goetz held several hearings a year to get updates on Spears' health, finances and other issues. Spears rarely attends the hearings but has met several times with the judge.
The Grammy-winning singer and Trawick have been dating since 2009 and announced in December that they are engaged. No wedding date has been announced.
Goetz will also consider whether to allow the sale of Spears' former home in the Hollywood Hills for $4.25 million. The home was a frequent target of the paparazzi and was the residence where Spears was removed under police escort for a psychiatric hold.
