What could this mean for Britney? We already know she can't take care of her kids, and now it looks like she is losing control of herself and her own property?

And wasn't she just singing about being "Overprotected" not too many years ago??

Spears placed under conservatorship

By SOLVEJ SCHOU - Associated Press Writer

LOS ANGELES — Britney Spears and her estate were placed under court-ordered temporary conservatorship Friday, a day after the pop star was taken to a psychiatric hospital.

It was not immediately clear who would act as conservator. The singer's parents, mother Lynne Spears and father James Spears, were in Superior Court for the hearing.

A court creates conservatorships when a person cannot care for themselves or handle his or her own affairs.

For the record:

A conservatorship can be set up after a judge decides that a person (called the "conservatee") can't take care of themselves or their finances. Then the judge chooses another person or organization (called the "conservator") to be in charge of the conservatee's care or finances, or both.

i saw on E! that yes her parents got joint conservatorship, fired her manager (that shady lufti guy) and were permitted to change the locks on the house and kick anyone in there out of it. 

hopefully this will be the beginning of things getting better and back on track for her.  i really pity that poor girl.

Feb. 4, 2008 at 10:46 AM maybe she was expected to grow up too fast/soon? she obviously missed out on being a child and experiencing what normal kids experience. She has been acting like a irresponsible child lately and add in the drugs or whatever she is on, explains this classic case of the crazies.  Oh and let's not forget her bad hair.  LOL!
