Britney Spears has made seemingly great strides in the last several months, staying under the radar, winning back her visitation with her sons and even appearing twice on the CBS sitcom How I Met Your Mother.
However, after another long afternoon in an L.A. courtroom, during which the 26-year old singer’s medical and pyschological condition were reviewed at length, the commissioner ruled that Britney’s health continues to be "somewhat tenuous" and that she is still incapable of making decisions for herself.
Neither Brit nor her father Jamie Spears were present at Thursday’s hearing, although commissioner Goetz approved a request for Jamie to receive more money per week in order to continue caring for Britney.
The singer’s court-appointed attorney Sam Ingham told the court today he believed it was better that Britney not participate in the legal affairs of her person and estate, adding it "in fact could be harmful to her to participate."
After reviewing her medical status, the commissioner agreed, saying, "Her medical condition remains the same. Though there have been changes in her medication, I think in terms of her diagnosis, it’s not complete."
The commissioner will review Brit’s condition again on June 17. In the meantime, a trial is set for July 31 to determine whether to dissolve or extend the conservatorship.
