EXCLUSIVE: Britney Co-Conservatorship To Continue
It was an expensive day in court Tuesday for Britney Spears. In a Los Angeles courtroom Commissioner Reva Goetz ordered the co-conservatorship of Britney Spears to continue, with her father, Jamie Spears, to continue to receive $16k a month for his duties as conservator of his daughter.
Goetz also ordered the co-conservator of Britney, Andrew Wallet, to be paid $174,569.10 for services rendered from July 2009-November 2009.
In addition Goetz ordered Jamie's attorneys to be paid $183,918 and attorney Joel Boxer to be paid $62,965.06. Another law firm was ordered to be paid $50k. Jamie Spears was also allowed to continue to receive $1200 for office space.
Samuel Ingham, the court appointed attorney for Britney Spears, said in court that, "She Britney accepted the accounting as filed and had no objection to it."
Other housekeeping issues concerned continuing to seal all medical and certain business transactions because of "trade secrets" and the commissioner also increased the bond for the conservatorship from $1 million dollars to $25 million. Bond is similar to insurance in conservatorship cases, so if anything were to happen to Britney's money she would be covered and reimbursed.
The next court hearing is scheduled for January 14th. Fees for Laura Wasser, Brit's legal ace divorce attorney will be dealt with at that time.
