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.

If the family is so money grabbing, what have they spent her money on recently? Any person put in the position of conservator is going to be looked at like they want her money, it is a no win situation. If one of your own family members displayed the behavior Britney has, would you not be concerned and possibly want to step in and preserve what they have for when they get well?

too bad    

I just found this article on-line and I cut and pasted the best part."...According to E!Spears is "just fooling her parents" at the moment, the insider told E! She "is telling her friends she wants the conservatorship to end. She keeps talking about it. She is behaving herself because she wants to get her [life] back together and get rid of her dad..." I believe every word-so like her to think after one week she is cured. She must resent her father because for the first time in her life she is being told "no" , a word Lynne Spears has never spoken-and what a disservice to spoil your children!!!

What does it mean? It means that Britney is going to be filling for bankruptcy in a short while after her family is done taking all her money. I hate being a cynic here, but family and money are always, always a bad mix. Albert Einstein said that insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. He was right. Her family is going to rob her blind.

This may have been at Brittney request for all we know; every trust has trustees, not the same thing as a conservator .Supposedly she has a great relationship with her brother, I think he has a finance degree and works on Wall Street; this may be setting things up for Daddy Spears to get out in a month.

I think that Britney is really a mess , more than we possibly know,and the more they reinforce family into this situation the better. There were stories out this morning before Court how Sam Lutfi was trying to influence the Governor to step in and remove Jamie from being a conservator by saying Britney told him and others she did not want her dad in her life running her affairs etc... I think it's a circling the wagon kind of thing being put into place to protect Britney.We don't see the full picture, so I personally think it's a precautionary move to keep Britney safe.

Seriously    

I actually think they are doing this to ensure child support for the kids, cause if she goes broke, the amount the court orders her to pay will go down too, and since she is really the only form of income for those kids, I know, I know, fedex is doing the pay-for-party-circuit, but look at the dude. It will last long. He needs his baby momma to NOT go broke. I think that is what this is all about, keeping the money flowing for the kids sake - you know, keeping them in the lifestyle to which they have become accustomed.
