Britney Spears’ Status Hearing in her conservatorship case was closed to the public, as the troubled singer discussed her medical issues and children. But RadarOnline.com can exclusively reveal the singer has been ordered to undergo a 730 evaluation.
Court papers obtained by RadarOnline.com read, “The parties stipulate and the Court orders a 730 expert evaluation subject to agreement of any and all parameters and agreement of the expert by Court-Appointed Counsel and Jamie Spears.”
A court-appointed expert will assess Britney, 37, to provide an opinion and recommendation to the court, a source told Radar.
The next Status Hearing will be Wednesday, September 18. Britney does not have to attend the hearing.
Britney entered the Los Angeles courthouse on Friday, May 10 alongside her mother Lynne. Her father Jamie was also present in court.
“Britney’s hair was down, she was wearing a turtleneck,” an eyewitness told Radar. “She was wearing a lot of makeup.”
She remained in the judge’s chambers while press and fans were in the courtroom.
“Britney’s court-appointed attorney Sam Ingham asked the court to be closed because Britney plans to talk about her medical issues and her kids,” an insider told Radar. “The judge granted the motion and the public was asked to leave the courtroom.”
The hearing lasted about an hour before Britney left through a private entrance.
As Radar reported, Lynne requested to be informed of all updates in her daughter’s conservatorship case. She filed a Declaration of Urgency on Tuesday, May 7, requesting the court permit an order to have one of her attorneys, Gladstone N. Jones III, appear at the Status Hearing set for May 10. The request was granted.
Britney’s, Jamie, who has been dealing with medical issues, has been in control of her conservatorship ever since she suffered a public mental breakdown in 2007.
The mother-of-two checked into a mental wellness center in April amid her father’s health troubles.
Concerned fans of the #FreeBritney movement, which is to raise awareness and save the star, are rallying outside of the courthouse today. Britney’s mother shockingly “liked” several of the Instagram posts.
