Britney Spears’s conservatorship could be in place for the rest of her life, according to her former estate manager Andrew Wallet. 

The attorney, 67, told the Daily Mail that Britney’s conservatorship was in place for a ‘good reason’ amid the ongoing court battle to have him reinstated as co-conservator of her estate along with her father, Jamie Spears, 68.

He said: ‘Britney is in a conservatorship for good reason but a lot of the Free Britney people have no experience with the law.

‘These legal proceedings are complex and people jump to conclusions. Their perception is so wrong but you can’t go and tell them why because a lot of it is confidential.

‘You have a lot of people who don’t have a clue but meanwhile we can’t talk about it. It’s frustrating but it is what it is.’

Andrew added that he believes the conservatorship to still be ‘in her best interests’, claiming that nobody would be talking about the case if she wasn’t a celebrity. 

Britney’s estate is estimated to be worth $59million (£45.5million), and she recently asked for a wealth management firm to replace her father from his current role as sole conservator. 

Andrew had helped manage her estate from when the conservatorship began in 2008 until he resigned in March last year. 

Andrew added: ‘It is not in Britney’s best interests to be outside the conservatorship but there’s a lot of politics involved.

‘Britney to this day does not have the capacity to sign documents and make decisions for herself.

‘Protecting her assets is very important and for that the conservatorship has to stay in place because she is susceptible to undue influences.’ 

He added: ‘I have had people in conservatorship who have got themselves right and it has been terminated but you don’t see that because they’re not people in the public eye.

‘Other people can be in a conservatorship their whole lives. I’m not saying that’s going to be Britney but it could happen to her.’
