This all seems so unfair!
We think everyone can agree that Britney Spears has essentially turned her life around since her 2008 psychiatric meltdown, which resulted in her father Jamie Spears taking conservatorship of her assets, finances, and decisions. However, this apparently means that in the law's eyes, she's mentally incapable of not only testifying in Sam Lufti's lawsuit, but also getting married to beau Jason Trawick if she wanted to!
The pop star recently revealed in an interview that she would happily marry Jason if "the time was right," but according to California attorney David E. Wohl:
"For a legal marriage to take place in California, a person must have the ability to make legally binding decisions. Just signing the marriage license requires this. Because Britney is under a conservatorship for all intents and purposes she cannot get married. The conservatorship would have to be set aside before she can legally tie the knot."
Seriously, this seems like such a technicality!
We personally don't think it would do any good for her to have to go and face Lufti after everything he put her through, but we're sure that if she did want to get married, her family and her team would be more than happy to make the proper arrangements to let her legally do that!
She's come so far, and seems to be doing so well, we would hate for something like this to hinder that in any way!
Keep up the good work, gurl! We're so proud of you!
