LOS ANGELES — Britney Spears’ fiance has received a judge’s approval to join her father as a co-conservator and help manage the singer’s personal affairs.
A judge in Los Angeles approved a request Wednesday by Spears and her court-appointed attorney to add Jason Trawick to the case.
He joins Spears’ father Jamie Spears in controlling several decision-making aspects of the singer’s personal life but will not have a role in managing her assets.
Trawick has served as Spears’ agent, They became engaged last year.
The 30-year-old singer remains under a court-ordered conservatorship that has been in place more than four years after a series of high-profile incidents of erratic behavior and her messy divorce.
Spears did not attend Wednesday’s hearing, much of which was closed to the public.
