Britney Spears' Conservatorship Judge Orders an Investigator's Report for Singer's Next Hearing

The singer's next hearing is scheduled for Sept. 18.

Britney Spears' conservatorship case is now under investigation.

According to court documents obtained by ET, the judge for the singer's conservatorship case has ordered that there be a Court Investigator's Report at the next hearing on Sept. 18.

Typically, a court investigator researches, examines and interviews all parties in the case and then presents a report to the judge in order to help the courts make the best possible decision. Britney's father, Jamie Spears, has been her conservator since 2008, and became her sole conservator this year after his former co-conservator, attorney Andrew Wallet, resigned in March. 

Britney made her latest court appearance for the case earlier this month with her mother, Lynne Spears. Her attorney asked the court that the status hearing on her conservatorship be closed to the public because of the private nature of the information that will be discussed. The request was granted.

Lynne, who has not previously played any role in her eldest daughter's conservatorship, also requested special notice of all matters relating to Britney's conservatorship. 

All of this comes after ET learned in April that Britney completed treatment at a health facility, a little over three weeks after she checked herself in. A source previously told ET that the singer checked herself into the facility after being under tremendous stress over her father suffering a health crisis.

Additionally, Britney was also granted a restraining order against her ex-manager, Sam Lutfi, earlier this month. In documents obtained by ET, she alleges that Lutfi has been harassing her and her mother since she completed treatment. The singer claims that Lutfi has been texting harassing messages to her and her family, while posting disparaging and disruptive comments on social media.

Britney's attorneys allege that Lutfi has attempted to impact the singer's conservatorship by taking to social media to make calls for "vigilante action," as well as "offering bribes and threatening the release of private information."

Lutfi has since filed an opposition. According to the documents obtained by ET, he claimed he had not directly contacted Britney since at least 2009 and the only evidence the conservatorship has is a "brief and non-confrontational text message with Lynne Spears" and tweet replies. He also claimed that his actions "could not have caused a reasonable person to suffer the requisite substantial emotional distress" needed for a restraining order.
