Los Angeles -  Britney's Spears' fiancé now has the blessing of a judge to help manage the singer's personal affairs.

Jason Trawick received approval on Wednesday from Superior Court Judge Reva Goetz to become a co-conservator over the Grammy-winning singer.

He joins her father Jamie Spears in that role and will have control over several decision-making aspects of her personal life but not in managing her assets.

Spears requested that Trawick join her court conservatorship a few months after the couple became engaged. They appeared in court together earlier this year, but the entertainer did not attend Wednesday's hearing.

Closed to the public

She has been under a court-ordered conservatorship since February 2008, when her father stepped in to take control after she had been hospitalised twice and had a series of incidents involving erratic behaviour.

Geraldine Wyle, an attorney for Jamie Spears, said after the hearing that her client was thrilled to have Trawick involved. Much of the hearing was closed to the public.

Trawick, who has served as Spears' agent, attended the hearing but did not comment after its conclusion.

At the request of attorneys handling the case, the judge did not consider the merits of whether to sell Spears' former home in the Hollywood Hills for more than $4m. The sale can go forward without court approval.

The judge sealed several records related to the singer's health and settlements of lawsuits.
