I'm glad the family stepped in on this one. She was going down down down, That dude would have drained her dry. The familly is doing what is best for her, I truly believe that.

Just glad at this time she can lean on someone who Will protect her. Weather in her illness she can see this And with grandma seeing the children at least Britney can still have a life line to them. Cause you know Lynne is makking sure those boys know that they have a mom.

she is playing her parent's right now, when they are gone, she will go back to doing what she was doing before. she will never change. soon she will be yanked back to the psych ward, then play the game to get released early. this "person" knows exactly what she is doing.

all those who think britney will just wake up one day and be well again, have to accept that it may never happen.. but she needs to be protected from herself and others down the line...this type of sickness shouldnt allow her to take control of the wheels of a car, but because of her celebrity status in a town that is made of fools gold, what do you expect... big stars high on cocaine take the wheels of cars and no one is the wiser, they pay up with anything happens. these people are protected by an entire industry built to protect them.. the rule book doesnt apply to star power thats why brit brit has been getting away with it for sooo long... any other joe would have been locked up ages ago... ma and pa have to make up for lost time now,,they have to do what they gotta do and cut of the honey money...forget about brit getting her kids, she isnt interested in that..the first thing she did when released from hospital was try to get the wheels in motion to remove her father from conservator.. thank god the courts had put counter measures in place..the moment that that striesand lawyer found out that she couldnt hire him HE WAS GONE IN 60SECONDS...!!one down,,, trope and trollop to go.... recognise game when you see it lufti.. you been punk'ed.

How long is her dad in control? Feb. 14th? Do you think Britney is going to be mature and all grown up then? Do you think she will be mentally well? Or do you Brittney lovers think that (with her rebellious, spoiled nature) she's going to let daddy control every move for a long, long time? Wow, at 26 that is really embarrassing. Her career is completely done.

As a mother it is painful to see a child deteriorate to this extent.. i dont understand why lynn spears spent so much time in denial about her child's condition.. she is responsible for a lot of what is going on right now...as a mother, you do everything to protect your child from harm.. why did she just let britney go like that?. at least her father is less money grubbing than the mother..but everyone has profited off this young woman.. she is nothing but a money making machine for everybody concerned..from kfedleazy, to ali the entourage wannabe..for someone who not in her right mind its sooo easy to manipulate an empty mind with no will of its own...kfed is hanging on to the kids cos they are his pay check and he knows it.. its the best investment he has made in his life and he knows that too. pay him up and close this chapter, brits papa now has to be a man and act like the father he should have been in the first place.. forget her wishes and do the right thing for her to keep her alive .

Trope & Trope did BS no favors. But, she was too screwed up to know it and she didn't have anyone around to clue her in. Remember, they wanted to dump her and when she went hostage-taking - they tried to remove themselves as her attorney of record?

Believe me, they've been waiting for the right moment to get rid of this chick. No amount of money in the world is worth what she has done to their legal reputation.

IF LW comes back, she'll only be there as long as BS parents have the reins. I work in the legal field and NO reputable attorney will rep a client that blatantly disregards their advice and hurts their case.

Why are they waiting until March 10, why don't they leave now? They are as unethical and dishonest as HKS and they have no respect for women.

I have noticed she hasn't been driving aimlessly. that is a good sign. Her father definitely wouldn't encourage it

1st: TMZ: use a deinterlacer in photoshop for video screenshots, the stuff you guys post from video looks horrible! or do you want to look like amateurs?

2nd: everythnig about getting rid of the leech lutfi sounds good to me.... let's hope that that guy hasn't brain washed that girl to the extent that after the conservatorship ends she will go bakc to selfdestruct mode...
