You know Britney Spears’ nice fiancé Jason Trawick? The one who has a job outside of being Britney Spears‘ man and bought her a diamond-y engagement ring and generally seems like a pretty good dude for her to marry? He just filed for legal control of her for her own good. Do we like this?
Okay, so that’s not the whole story. Her father Jamie Spears currently has conservator-ship of Britney’s sizable “affairs,” which he gained during her bald umbrella freakout period back in 2008 and still has for some reason even though she is totally fine now. So as their wedding day drew nigh, Trawick did the only reasonable thing and
told her dad she’s an adult woman who can take care of herself petitioned the court to transfer some of that legal control to him. Just like they did in the olden days!
A “source” tells People that Trawick (who used to manage her) is not filing for control of her finances, but her “general well being,” which includes decisions regarding food, clothing, and medical care. If you think about it, that’s actually worse than him controlling her money, because while most normal people know fuck all about managing a giant fortune, when it comes to feeding and clothing ourselves, we’ve hopefully got it covered.
“This is probably a compromise between Britney, her father and Trawick to get the marriage off on the right foot,” comments People‘s attorney friend Jeffrey S. Cohen. “Obviously, her future husband needs to have a say in her well being.” Obviously.
This all makes me think one of two things is going on: either Britney Spears is secretly retarded à la Charlize Theron‘s character arc on Arrested Development, or the men in her life are plotting to eventually have her wrongfully institutionalized One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest style and take all of her monies. Either way, I’m disturbed.
