It's a Family Affair! Brit's Bro Now in the Mix Too!

2/14/2008 7:37 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

A judge has granted a request to have Britney's older brother, Bryan, be named as the trustee of his sister's trust.
Read the docs
30-year-old Bryan and attorney Ivan Taback have been granted the authority to serve as co-trustees.

According to documents filed today, Britney is the sole trustee of the trust. But, according to the trust, "an individual Trustee shall cease to act as Trustee hereunder if he or she is under a legal disability or if by reason of illness or mental or physical disability, in the written opinion of two doctors then practicing medicine, he or she is unable to manage his or her affairs."

Since Bryan and Ivan Taback were named successor co-trustees, they assume control. Stacy Smith is also named a successor co-trustee, but had previously declined her appointment.

I think this family needs to do whatever it takes to keep this young woman alive and to help her get healthy, for herself and for the sake of those beautiful baby boys. For you haters, what is wrong with you? Your negative comments hurt everyone, including yourselves. Let the medical and legal professionals do their jobs. Britney isn't even fighting this, at least not in public. Please let her heal in peace.

It means Britney is being taken advantage during the point in her life when she can't help herself. Greedy freaks.

I'm guessing that being Brit's trustee is more than a one person job considering what a trainwreck she is. Jamie has a job and can't be there 24/7. Smart move!@

That is actually really good news. Of the entire family, Bryan is the only one she has never had beef with. She never severed ties with him and still talks to him several times a week. He isn't "in the biz" and he takes his family priorities very seriously. They used to live together in NYC. He was the one she went to after the MTV award show snafu. Bryan is a good influence and I am actually relieved to see he is taking a larger role. He wont (can't) be influenced by his parents either: Brit is his favorite family member.

I wish the court would give all Britney's money to her hardworking father. She doesn't deserve one friggin penny. To be honest, the court should just disperse her money to every hardworking American. I would love to see her not have anything.
