Britney wants conservatorship to end

2012-06-08 20:15
Los Angeles - Britney Spears is ready to "regain control of her life".

The X Factor judge is reportedly ready for her father Jamie Spears' conservatorship over her - meaning he is in charge of her personal and professional affairs - to come to an end.

The singer now feels she is in a much better place in her life than she was when the ruling was initially put in place.

A source said: "Britney very much wants the conservatorship to end, she doesn't understand why it has gone on this long.

"Britney is now a judge on a national hit television show, which will be live when it airs this fall. Britney feels she is ready to regain control of her life now.

"Britney's dad, Jamie, has conservatorship of her personally and professionally, and this has been going on now for almost four-and-half years."

However, theToxic hitmaker's doctors are said to not support her bid to have the conservatorship come to an end.

The source added: "Britney's doctors just don't feel she is ready for the conservatorship to end though, as she has a very complicated mental health diagnosis."

Prove herself

Despite the medical concerns, Britney is confident she can "prove herself" in her judging role on The X Factor  and, with a review hearing scheduled for 21 July, it is possible the situation could change then.

The source added to "Brit is hopeful that once she proves herself on X Factor  this will be the impetus for the conservatorship to end.

"Brit could absolutely be in court at that time (in July).

"The judge wants to make sure that Britney is handling the stress of her new job appropriately.

"The only person that can formally end the conservatorship though is the judge and she has to be convinced by her medical doctors, that it's the best thing to do.

"Britney is grateful to her dad for giving up his personal life to save her but she wants to stand on her own two feet now."

A hearing takes place on Friday to discus a range of items, including the allowance of fees requested by Jamie Spears and Brit's court appointed attorney, Samuel Ingham, and a motion to seal the star's medical records.
