Sources tell TMZ the Britney Spears conservatorship was extended not because Brit is on a downhill spiral, but because the court commissioner wants to ensure stability, given all the craziness.
As we first reported, Jamie Spears will be in control of Brit and her personal affairs through July 31. The commissioner extended the conservatorship yesterday in a closed hearing. We've learned Brit's mental state was not a factor in extending it. The real concern is that another wacky motion might be filed to derail the conservatorship and the commissioner didn't want some outside lawyer swooping in if the conservatorship were to expire.
Sources also tell us Jamie Spears wants to end the conservatorship before July 31 if his daughter's mental state improves. The commish was impressed that things have already stabilized.
Commish Doesn't Think Brit Nuttier than Ever
