Britney Spears has been under conservatorship for four years, and she feels that she is now ready to resume control of her life, but her medical doctors don't think she is ready yet, is exclusively reporting.

As previously reported, Spears was in court last Thursday with her dad Jamie Spears, and fiancé, Jason Trawick to meet with Judge Reva Goetz. The judge wanted to discuss with Britney the possibility of her becoming a part of Simon Cowell's The X Factor.

The pop music queen has told her psychiatrist and her court appointed lawyer, Samuel Ingham, that she's now ready to go it alone, but it looks like that won't be happening anytime soon.

"Britney has said that she feels she is ready to resume control of her life," a source close to the situation tells "She has expressed this sentiment on multiple occasions, but her doctor believes that Britney isn't ready for the conservatorship to be lifted. She has come a very long way in the last 18 months especially but her team wants more time. Yes, Britney does live on her own, with Jason, and her dad hasn't lived under the same roof with her for years, but she just wants to be able to call her own shots. Britney doesn't have a problem with the conservatorship staying in place for her business. Remember, she doesn't have any formal custodial rights as far as her children are concerned. Kevin has agreed to essentially joint custody, but in the eyes of the law, she has no rights, and Kevin can revoke the agreement that is in place at anytime because of the fact that Britney is still under conservatorship."

Meanwhile, contract talks are still ongoing between Spears advisers and producers for The X Factor. Simon Cowell wants Spears to become a judge on his U.S. version of the show.

"Under terms of the contract, Britney will be paid around $15 million a year. She will travel out of state for auditions, as long as it doesn't interfere with her custodial time with her sons. The boys will be allowed to come to the set whenever Britney wants them there. Her sons are her number one priority. Jason has been heavily involved in the contract talks," an insider told

So, when will the conservatorship end? "Not soon enough for Britney. It looks like it won't be ending anytime soon, but Britney feels that she is powerless to fight it," the source says. "She has been on two wildly successful worldwide concert tours, has gotten engaged, and is now in talks to join a major television show, what more does she have to do to prove to people that she is ready to resume control of her life? Britney has been told Jamie's lawyers could petition the judge for the conservatorship to end later this year, and not anytime sooner."
