Britney Spears conservatorship: What is a conservatorship? Pop legend’s situation in brief


Britney Spears has spent the last several years of her life contained in a conservatorship. Until recently, the general public has had very little insight into the naughties pop legend’s life. But as she speaks out, people have questions about what her situation means and how it came about.

What is a conservatorship?

California’s Superior Court can approve “probate conservatorships” for adults who “cannot care for him/herself or his/her finances”.

Anyone who wants to initiate a conservatorship needs to apply first and go before the court.


The court then appoints a responsible guardian to take care of the adult, known as a conservatee.

Conservators in charge of both the estate and the person can make a range of personal decisions for the conservatee, including medication regimens.


Probate conservatorships differ from another type of agreement named a mental health (LPS) conservatorship.

These typically apply when people have become “seriously mentally ill” and require “powerful” drugs or facility placement.

While Britney Spears is under a Probate Conservatorship, her father initially received approval on mental health grounds.


Ms Spears was put on an involuntary psychiatric hold in 2008 before her father, James Spears, petitioned a court in Los Angeles to establish a conservatorship with himself and attorney Andrew Wallet in charge.

They received a temporary dispensation at first over the pop star’s “person” and the $60 million (£43 million) in her name.

The decision has since become permanent and means Mr Spears signs off on “every major decision” in her life.


Mr Spears gained sole control in 2019, and proceedings have since started to decide on the conservatorship’s future.
