Britney Spears made an appearance at an LA courthouse yesterday and of course rumors swirled that it was about her boys, Sean Patrick and Jayden James. But it turns out the hearing was about couture, not custody issues. Really?
Yep – it’s true. While we didn’t see her on phone bank duty at George Clooney’s telethon last night, she does want to do her part by selling one of the gowns she wore to the MTV music awards in 2008 and donating the proceeds. But due to the terms of her conservatorship arrangement (all her personal and financial decisions are made by her daddy Jamie and a few others), Britney had to get approval from the court first. Britney’s lawyer Sam Ingham asked that all records from the day in court be sealed as apparently other “sensitive and medical issues” were also discussed — so we don’t really know what else went down.
Despite a recent meltdown, some think an end to the conservatorship is near. It’s been over two years (people predicted it would only last for one) and Britney’s been on pretty good behavior since her Circus tour last year. She’s even been granted additional visits with her kids.
