Court hearing on Britney Spears' life, finances closed

LOS ANGELES — A hearing on the court conservatorship that controls the money and affairs of Britney Spears has been closed to the public and media.

Judge Brenda Penny, who was scheduled to receive a review Wednesday of the conservatorship that has been in place for 11 years, ruled that because medical, mental health and child issues would be discussed, the courtroom should be sealed.

Spears was not in court initially, but in previous hearings she has entered through back doors after the courtroom was cleared.

Her parents were in attendance. Father Jamie Spears temporarily stepped down earlier this month from his role as conservator over her personal life, though he maintained financial control over her.

On Tuesday, prosecutors declined to file charges against Jamie Spears after a child-abuse investigation. They gave no further details.
