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.

Are you kidding me? Jamie and Lynn? Where have they been for the last year? The judge just needs to ask Lynn: Did you recently sell your daughter out for 1 million dollars to a magazine? Case dismissed. Neither should Sam be responsible for her finances. Even though I disagree with most of you about him and whether he is a skank or not, I do not think he should be responsible for her finances. Britney's financial affairs need to be handed over to her attorney until she is well again.

#51 commented: I don't particularly like Britney but I think someone should step in and have her best interests at heart. No one deserves to have their life plastered everywhere. When you lose pieces of yourself a little at a time, you don't have enough to keep yourself alive. I think that is what has happened to her. Too many people/things have taken little bits and pieces of her and left her with just a pile of money and a broken heart.
DITTO, DITTO, DITTO. #51 would probably do a better job than either Jamie and Lynne Spears or Sam Lufti.

I've got a suggestion... there's so much focus on the recent tragedies in Britney Spears' life, let's take some time and focus on one of her many triumphs. Super Bowl XXXV was a great half-time show, with Britney and the boys rockin' the house!!!! Show a little support tomorrow and include this video during your half-time festivities.

Go to: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=djsrYPvNmww to view the better times. Get yourself well Britney!!!!

You moron ABC, I am no one other than Sharon d, and maybe YOU need to stuff it!! If you support a rapist and sexual predator like Adne for taking advantage of a woman not in charge of her mental state, than maybe YOU should be arrested too!

I think what is happening to Britney is the best thing possible. There's something creepy about an outsider like Lufti or Ghalib just appearing out of nowhere, and then both of them talking to the press. I find it hard to believe that they are not in it for some selfish reason. If Britney didn't have money, wasn't famous, these guys wouldn't hang around. She'd be another 'Hollyweird Casualty" ...but she always has the best she can do and that is her parents.

Stage parents yes. Most stage parents push their children into the limelight I believe because stage parents are living vicariously through their children , but when it does work out for the kid, well then whether it was good or not is a moot debate since it's already over with. Obviously it could be something was missing from Britney's life, perhaps a normal childhood.

Get rid of the users, keep the parents around, they've (despite all their imperfections) were able to get her fame and fortune. Now she needs real help. She needs to stay in that hospital for as long as it takes to figure out her psychosis. Part may be drug induced, part may be bipolar and she is self medicating with the drugs. Either way, these people popping out of no where don't seem to be serving any purpose to get her better.

Laci The court has the power to create a conservatorship, which would allow both Jamie and Lynne to make medical decisions it would be up to the court of course as parents they want the best fro her. I think you took what I said way wrong. I hope she gets the best care possible and everything works out for her she's young and has her whole life ahead of her and her boys need a mom at least visition.

Why is it since Brit has been in the psych ward all tmz photos are blurry, grainy snaps from old videos instead of the clear photos on previous headlines?

Good for her parents.It's about time! Sam and Adnan might actually have to go and find a job.Both of them are very
controlling people. With a lot of medical help,Britney might someday,come out of all this,for the better.

All of these people are just a bunch of blood hounds. Looking for money and fame. I never thought Kevin should of ever got custody of the kids because when Britney was pregnant he was out with all kinds of strippers in Las Vegas living it up. The courts needed to step in to keep the kids with Spears. Don't think for one second that Federline didn't know about Britney's bi-polar condition and that this was a very good chance to cash in on her mental illness and take control of the children. He seen $$$$ right away. Remember this is the same guy who left Shar Jackson when she was like 6 months pregnant to be with Britney, he didn't care about his past kids and does he pay child support for them?? I bet not. He was and is a guy looking for a meal ticket and found it..BLOOD SUCKING LEACH...GO BRITNEY , GET WELL and BUST OPEN A CAN OF WOOP ASS on these losers...
