Britney's Dad In Complete Control
Britney Spears may have officially returned to earth, but that doesn't mean the 26-year-old is taking charge of her personal or financial affairs anytime soon.
No, that weighty decision was left up to a Los Angeles Superior Court Commissioner who on Tuesday afternoon granted Jamie Spears, Britney's attentive daddy, permanent conservatorship over his eldest daughter's assets.
After a drawn out closed-doors meeting, complete with a thorough medical evaluation of Miss Spears, Commissioner Reva Goetz stated that the permanent conservatorship is "necessary and appropriate."

Even Britney's court-appointed lawyer Samuel Ingham said the pop singer wished that he "not object" to the conservatorship deal.
However, experts agree that in this case, "permanent" doesn't necessarily mean "forever."
"Don't read too much into the word 'permanent,'" explained Terry K. Wasserman, a mental health lawyer not involved with this case. "In many cases, it's just a formality to avoid having to renew a temporary status over and over again."
