It looks like Britney Spears‘ conservatorship is here to stay. According to TMZ, lawyers for the singer’s conservatorship case have asked the court commissioner to make her conservatorship permanent. The judge agreed to grant the request.
Brit’s conservatorship was scheduled to end on Dec. 31. TMZ reports that under a permanent conservatorship, it will be easier for the singer to regain custody of her kids. In other words, the family law commissioner will give Britney more time with her sons if there’s a safety net in place.
The commissioner reportedly didn’t want to keep extending temporary power. It makes more sense to grant a permanent conservatorship and then just lift it– if and when Britney is deemed sound enough to handle her own affairs.
The conservators will now be responsible for handling Britney’s business affairs and career opportunities. Under the present state, a medical team will oversee Britney’s career to make sure that what she does will not compromise her mental health.
"The conservatorship is necessary and appropriate for the complexity of financial and business entities and her being susceptible to undue influence," the commissioner said.
