Britney Spears Engaged: Star to Regain Access to Finances as Wedding Gift

  on

Britney Spears is allegedly set to marry fiancé Jason Trawick, 40, on Valentine's Day and reports claim she is getting quite the birthday gift from her father: her fortune. The pop star's father, Jamie Spears, is looking to end his conservatorship over the 30 year old's finances as a wedding gift to the star, Sunday Express reports.

Jamie wants to go to court in early February so Britney will be a free woman in every sense when she marries, a source close to the family told Sunday Express.

Jamie Spears first gained control of his daughter's finances through a court order following the pop star's meltdown in 2008. Spears split with her husband of the time, Kevin Federline, and lost control of her two children, Sean Preston, 6, and Jayden James, 5. The public meltdown did not stop there. In fact, Spears was seen attacking paparazzi photographers with an umbrella and shaved her head in an act of rebellion.

Since her public meltdown, Page Six reports that Spears' financial and personal decisions have been monitored by her father and major decisions have been brought before a judge for nearly four years. The Daily Star reports he created a plan to set his daughter back on track in 2008, including hiring a lifestyle coach, a chef, a personal trainer and an alcohol counselor.

After putting two failed marriages behind her, Spears has returned to a more normal lifestyle. She has regained custody of her sons and is currently engaged to her former agent, Trawick.

The conservatorship will end when Britney is ready, a source told RadarOnline in 2011. She is making progress, this is the second tour that she has done in the past three years. These tours wouldn't have happened if Jamie hadn't stepped in and taken control of his daughter's life.

Sources believe that Spears' engagement to long-time friend, Trawick, have changed her. The couple became engaged on Dec. 16 and Spears quickly tweeted a picture of her engagement ring to her fans with the comment, I can't stop looking at it.

According to reports, the couple is set to marry on the Hawaiian island, Maui, on Feb. 14 of this year. However, reps for Spears have denied the wedding date and location.

My father saved my life, Spears told the Daily Star in 2008. I probably wouldn't be here if it wasn't for him ... [He] basically gave up his job and his life to look after me at a time when I wasn't even sure I wanted to go on living.
