A judge in Los Angeles Thursday announced that the conservatorship involving Britney Spears' vast estate will continue as is - at least for the time being.
After meeting separately in closed chambers with both Spears and with her father Jamie - who controls his daughter's personal and financial matters- Judge Reva Goetz said in open court, "I met with him (Jamie) and her (Britney) spearately. I had a very nice conversation with her. Mr. Ingham (Britney's attorney) was present."
In all, Judge Goetz met with Britney for about a half hour; she did not reveal what they discussed.
Judge Goetz then said another hearing on the matter will be held on October 14.
As RadarOnline.com previously reported, Spears - wearing a black dress with an open back and black ankle boots - arrived to the courthouse around 9:20 a.m. PT. Thursday for the status hearing. She was surrounded by deputies and taken immediately into the judge's chambers; her father had arrived to the courthouse earlier in the morning.
Spears, 28, has been under the conservatorship since January 2008, after having several very public breakdowns.
Spears has made tremendous progress since that very dark time in her life. Having a blockbuster world tour in 2009, and with a rumored album to be released in 2011, Britney 2.0 is better than ever. Britney has been dating her former manager, Jason Tarwick, and the two just recently returned from a Hawaiian vacation. Britney essentially has joint custody of her two sons, with ex-husband, Jayden James and Sean Preston.
