Britney Spears’ conservatorship has been extended until at least the end of the summer.
According to court documents obtained by ET, judge Brenda Penny issued an order authorizing the temporary conservator, Jodi Montgomery, to stay on Spears' conservatorship until at least August 22, 2020.
Per the docs, the extension comes after the judge decided a hearing on the matter could not take place due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Spears' father, Jamie, stepped down as her conservator in September 2019. Jamie had previously petitioned the court to hand over the reins of the singer's conservatorship, citing ongoing health issues. A judge approved the request and appointed Montgomery, Spear's longtime care manager, as her new conservator.
