Courts have granted Britney Spears’ parents, Jamie and Lynne Spears, temporary control over her finances, visitor access, medical records, and even her property (for example, they can change the locks of her mansion, or raid her growing collection of pink wigs). She is still undergoing psychiatric evaluation.
The first thing the couple did was to issue a restraining order against Sam Lufti, Britney’s friend. He says: “I object to this. Britney is fully capable of handling her own finances. Her doctors are capable of handling her health care. You’d think in a time like this, the family would be at the hospital taking care of their daughter, rather than fighting for her money. How sad.”
