Britney Spears

How Cool is a

Lifetime Conservatorship?

8/24/2012 12:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE



082412_spearsOur photog had a chance to fire off one question to Britney Spears as she strolled through The Grove Friday -- so of course we wanted to know if she was "cool" with having a conservator for the rest of her life.

Britney and her fiance-conservator Jason Trawick were leaving Planet Dailies restaurant at the time and Brit's reaction is priceless ... as is the way our photog tried to butter her up before asking the question.

TMZ broke the story Thursday ... the reason the conservatorship has lasted 4 1/2 years -- with no end in sight -- is because she has a medical condition that affects her decision-making process.

What a stupid question. "Are you cool with being too crazy to manage your life?"

She didn't react. I mean, come on. She was nice enough to smile at your camera man- more than most celebs do. Then you hit her with a cruel question. Not cool.

WTF is up with her hair? She needs somebody else to be in charge of that: a hair conservatorship.

I wouldn't marry someone that was unable to legally manage her own personal affairs. The fact that Jason himself has taken on the role of conservator creates an 1800s style marriage where the woman is property of the man.

Does TMZ stand for Thugs, Morons, and Zombies?

It's clear to me and everyone else that you love preying on the weak.

Harvey, you may be a lawyer, but you sure are a poor excuse for a human.

So let me get this straight: Britney is "well" enough to work and pay her father, the attorneys, her husband, her ex husband..But she is not well enough to decide how to spend the money she earns? This is a miserable excuse for a family she has. If I were her I'd just quit working. They can't force her to. Let those vultures go to work for themselves.

That was really cruel. You KNOW she has a medical condition (could be bipolar, could be schizophrenia, etc) and you ask her that question? It's BECAUSE of her condition that she needs a conservator. Would you ask a wounded vet, "Are you cool being in that wheelchair the rest of your life?" or asking a blind person "Are you cool needing a guide dog forever?" or asking a person with severe Down syndrome "Are you cool that you'll need a caregiver for the rest of your life"? etc. TMZ has really become one of the sleaziest business around. You skid marks should be ashamed of yourselves.
