Jeff Kravitz/FilmMagic/Getty Images (NEW YORK) — Britney Spears’ father has asked a court to add his daughter’s fiancé as a co-conservator over her, according to PEOPLE.

Jason Trawick, Spears’ former agent and fiancé, will only have shared legal control over Spears’ general well-being, not her finances, PEOPLE reported.

“This is a very unusual situation, because generally you don’t see conservatees get married,” Jeffrey S. Cohen, an L.A. probate attorney not involved with the case, told the magazine. “This could be a sign that the couple’s wedding is around the corner.”

“This is probably a compromise between Britney, her father and Trawick to get the marriage off on the right foot. Obviously, her future husband needs to have a say in her well being,” Cohen added.

Jamie Spears has held legal control of his pop star daughter and her fortune since she suffered a psychological breakdown in 2008 and was hospitalized in Los Angeles.

The conservatorship will be lifted when a judge believes Spears is healthy enough to fend for herself.
