Report: Medical Issue Behind Britney Spears Conservatorship

Surprising news in the world of Britney Spears

It is being reported today that a medical issue is behind the conservatorship placed on the “Crazy” singer over four years ago… The condition is reportedly severe enough that it prevents her from making sound decisions.

TMZ, who obtained documents of the case filed on Tuesday, reports the breaking news…

Sources tell the site that the singer suffers from a disorder that affects her personality and state of mind. Though Spears appears to be doing “extremely well” under the added new pressures of her responsibilities on “The X Factor,” the conservatorship is necessary as a safety precaution in case her brain backfires.

According to TMZ, the text of documents filed on Tuesday was an urgent request to conceal certain records from the case. The papers site the records as "highly sensitive" and "irreparable harm and immediate danger,” adding that they could prove harmful to Brit’s image if revealed.

Reportedly, the records document the specifics of the Britney’s condition and her treatment for it.

There are two parts to the conservatorship… A personal part and a business part.

The personal conservatorship gives her sister Jamie and fiancé Jason Trawick the ability to make life decisions for her. The business conservatorship takes the controls of her career away from the singer. reports that “The X Factor” judge feels prepared to have the conservatorship lifted, citing that she is “the only person under a conservatorship that has managed to land a $15 million work contract.”

Both sources report that the appointed guardianship program will likely remain in effect.
