Since 2008, Britney Spears has been under a conservatorship, which means that she does not have full control over her finances and other important life decisions. In the subsequent years, the level of control that the "Toxic" singer has over her own life has continued to come up again and again, which at one time, even included a lawsuit involving the #FreeBritney movement.

Now, a judge has ruled that Spears' conservatorship will be extended for several months.

According to The Blast, an LA county judge made the decision due to the fact those involved are trying to "figure out what is best for the pop star." 

"The temporary conservatorship of the person of Britney Jean Spears is extended to April 30, 2020. New letters of temporary conservatorship of the person shall be issued to Jodi Pais Montgomery. which shall expire on April 30, 2020, or upon earlier issuance of Letters to a general conservator of the person of Britney Jean Spears," states the order.

This development follows her father, Jamie Spears, stepping down from his role as conservator in 2019. At that time, it was said that he was vacating his position due to "personal health issues." However, it followed an investigation pertaining to her ex-husband Kevin Federline's accusation that Jamie and his teenage grandson, Sean Preston, had allegedly gotten into a physical altercation

Aside from the conversation surrounding her conservatorship, the "Crossroads" actress has also remained in the news over the past several months for a variety of others reasons. Not only has her mother, Lynne Spears, made unexpected accusations regarding what is going on behind the scenes with her daughter, but some have also speculated that Britney could be getting her own art show in the future.
