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.

Hurray! Good luck to the Spears! Once you win-do an audit on her money and then a criminal investigation on Lefty and dork! They both should be put in jail. I am glad to see this happened "before" something serious vs. the life of Anna Nicole. Look what Howard Stern did to the son, anna nicole and the baby.....go for it "Team Spears"
Get rid of the slime-exterminate the house.....and regroup

Of course, Britney is going to hate and curse her parents for the rest of their lives for doing this to her.
She will probably cut them out of any money for the rest of their lives. I suspect they know this.
Good for them for doing what they must do for her best interest and putting themselves last.
This tells me that they do not care about kissing her butt for their own monetary gain, unlike like Sam and Adnan.

My prayers are with the Spears family. This has to be very heart breaking to see your child/sister/mother/ex-wife in a s situation like this. I pray that everyone can come to terms and agree on something. At the end we will see who's in it for the interest of Britt or for the almight $$$$$$.

I'm begining to beleive it more and more that Sam Lufti is a lot llike Howard K. Stern.........$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$
God Bless you Britt and I will continue to keep you in my prayers. I pray each and everyday for you to get the help that you need. Don't worry about what people think or say about you focus on getting better and getting those boys back. They miss their mother. If Kevin was concerned he would ask the court if they could see their mommy even if Kevin has to be the one to supervise.

Continue to Pray the 23 Psalm ( do this on a daily basis)

I hope Britney's parents can quickly get the court to have them be conseratorship. That no good Sam is still around, this is one person that Britney doesn't need in her life, specially for her to recover. But if Britney is Bipolar, it's for life. She will have to take her medication everyday. Her parents should try and get a restrain order on Sam.

I think this is a good idea, but only the dad should control the conservatorship … not both of them!

I say this not to spite Lynn, but so that when dad wants things done one way and mom wants it done another way … they won’t have to go to court to have it decided.

Lynn has the concerns of her other daughter to handle now and that daughter is still a minor.

these two parents are unfit themselves...mother is a gold-digger and daddy is a drunk....the only thing the both of them have in common is britney (#2) but her money #1.
the only one brit can rely on is herself, she best get better soon and take over her own affairs...am afraid that her condition will always warrant somebody else looking after her

Once Brit gets wind of this, she'll get Sam to help her escape from the hospital and head for the border again.

Britney's parents will never win any awards for their parenting skills, but Sam Lufti has absolutely no right to be Britney's guardian in these matters. Even if he truly did have her best interests at heart, which is highly unlikely, Britney's parents have known her for her entire life, and they should be making decisions for their daughter.

I think it's important to remember that, if Britney is bipolar, her parents aren't solely responsible for all her troubles. Mental disorders are just like any other health condition: it's no more your fault for being bipolar than if you were to catch a cold. It's easy for us to judge Britney and her parenting skills, but we have to keep in mind that 1) she's suffering from mental problems that she has no control over, and 2) her intense childhood and adulthood in the public eye have probably negatively affected her to some degree.
