Britney Spears needs extraordinary circumstances to go into conservatorship

Britney Spears will not simply be put back into a conservatorship automatically if her mental health or marriage falter.

TV judge and law graduate and Cristina Perez says that it would need “extraordinary” circumstances for a Los Angeles court to return control of the star’s life to her parents, husband or friend.

Perez addressed concerns from some fans that Britney could lose control of her life for a second time because of mental health worries and reported marriage problems with husband Sam Asghari.

She insisted that authorities and an LA judge would need “actual evidence” of her being unable to care for herself or being a danger to herself of others to remove her hard fought independence.

In recent months there have been many concerns about the Toxic artist’s behaviour and lifestyle.

But Perez, who presided over cases on shows La Corte del Pueblo and La Corte de Familia, admits claims will not alter Britney remaining in charge of her own life.

Perez, speaking at LA Center for Law and Justice’s Celebrating Survivors Gala, said: “If it’s something that the parents are going to try to do.

“I think it’ll be very hard to put her back in that situation because she’s been let out of it; unless some extraordinary circumstance happens where she becomes incapacitated in some way, not physically, but there’s enough proof that she’s not making the right decisions for herself.

“Well then yes, then we have to protect her. And the law would protect that.

“But until we see evidence of that, I think it’s really hard to gauge where it’s going to go. We need signs that something is wrong.“

In February it was reported that Britney was “struggling with her mental health and substance abuse”.

Perez says that proof would be needed to show the singer could harm herself or others.

She added: “I think people around her are going to have to ask, is she crying out for help?

“Is she putting herself or family in danger? Those are the things. Is she not making the right decisions?

“There’s so much that you have to really look into it because we’re taking control away from her. So you don’t want that to happen to you.

“So it has to be really strong, persuasive evidence, not just sayings, but people supporting it.

“You’re not going to take somebody’s ability to make decisions for themselves unless there’s actual evidence that they can’t do that anyway.”

Perez believes that “objective” Superior Court judge Brenda Penny made the right decision ending the conservatorship 18 months ago.

But to change that status back is tough for parents Jamie and Lynne to achieve.
