We’ve had a couple weeks to digest the fact that Britney Spears‘ fiance Jason Trawick has been tapped as her co-conservator alongside her dad, Jamie. And even now that it’s all official on paper, we still don’t feel totally at ease with the whole thing. But star therapist Dr. Jenn Berman of VH1‘s Couples Therapy has been trying hard to convince us that it’s actually a good thing. “Other people looking out for her seems to have really worked well for her, Jenn recently told us. “It helped her in her healing and well-being. It seems like it’s what she needs.”
The singer has been under conservator-ship since her very public (and very scary) meltdown in early 2008, and for all we know it may have saved her life. Yet still, the whole thing sort of creeps us out. We just don’t like the idea of a grown woman’s husband being granted legal control over her food, heath-care and style choices. Plus, Britney and Jason aren’t even married yet! Not to mention the fact that he’s her agent. What kind of legal firestorm would occur if they split up? “This is a very unusual situation, because generally you don’t see conservatees get married,” LA probate attorney Jeffrey Cohen told People magazine.
On the upside, Judge Reva Goetz admitted at Britney’s conservatorship hearing that he was “impressed” with her progress. So perhaps in the near future Brit can successfully petition to have Jason demoted to just plain old “husband/agent.” But until that day comes, Britney and Jason will top our list of the most unsettling couples in show biz.
