Brit's Parents Make Their Move in Court

2/1/2008 4:49 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned Britney Spears' parents are going to court -- the courtroom that establishes conservatorship for people whose personal health and welfare are gravely at risk.

Jamie and Lynne Spears arrived this morning at the County courthouse in downtown L.A. Sources say both parents are extremely concerned about the welfare of their daughter, and upset because Sam Lutfi is trying to call the shots on all matters Britney.

The court has the power to create a conservatorship, which would allow both Jamie and Lynne to make medical decisions on behalf of Britney. The conservatorship would also allow them to control Britney's financial affairs. Both parents have made it clear: they believe Lutfi's influence has placed their daughter and her assets at risk.

We're in court, so stay tuned. The hearing is now scheduled for 1:30 PM PT.

Good for them. After hearing Sam rattle off to anyone who would listen what horrible people they were, this needed to be done.

Way to go Britney - we love and are praying that you come through for Sean Preston and Jaden James. Being a mom I dont even want to imagine what it feels to lose your children. This is the only way to get them back because when you are healthy you are happy and your children are healthy and happy

Thank Gohhhd!    

It is about time - Lutfi is full of CRAP and is a total CREEP! I hope the judge can see that --- the restraining orders others have taken out against him will hopefully be helpful.

KEEP SAM AWAY FROM HER

It's too bad that Lynne Spears failed to take her daughter's welfare into consideration before she started pimping her out. I absolutely cannot stand this woman, but I despise Sam Lutfi even more. By no means am I a Spears fan, but it is painfully obvious that this woman is in dire need of medical help.

And I hope it is granted so she can be made to stay where she is because she needs medical intervention, the kind Osama Bin Lutfi cannot provide.

To Rachelle: Yes, go read, it says they want to both be able to make decisions on their daughters medical care. It says absolutely nothing about someone outside of the family. It says THEM. Which is Bad, worse, and worst. Lufti and the Spears' duo are like the same entity.

I have concluded that bland bubblegum pop music is dangerous to your health. If your kids listen to Hannah Montana or the Jonas Brothers, you have been warned. They will end up like Britney when they hit 20.

Bubblegum pop music destroys your soul.

Maybe the doc should get the powers of an attorney. Sam, Jamie, Lynne - they are all just as nuts as Brit. She needs someone SANE calling the shots.
