Who Has Britney's Best Interests in Mind?

Who Has Britney's Best Interests in Mind?

Britney's parents Jamie and Lynne are supposedly headed to court today to voice their concerns about Sam Lutfi and Adnan Ghalib's level of control over their daughter. If they can convince the court to create a conservatorship, they'll be able to control Britney's financial and medical decisions. On the other hand, Sam talked to Ryan Seacrest about how he feels that Britney's parents are just trying to get their hands on her money. So tell us — who do you think has Britney's best interests in mind?

no matter what mistakes her parents might have made in the past, i think family is almost always more reliable than anyone/anything else! i am so glad that creepy lufti is out of brit's life for now! hopefully for good!

Her father is pretty much the only sane and non-greed person left in teh family. That's why the judge put him in charge of Brit's money.

Her family is the only one who wouldn't have a hidden agenda. They have nothing to gain now like they did when they were making money off her.

Jamie - lynn spears aka her sister she's always been looking out for brit ... unlike her mum who started rejecting her in her time of need.

I wouldn't even trust her parents. They haven't exactly done a great job of looking after their daughter in the past, have they? And Britney's sister needs to get away from them too.

I think her parents have her best interest at heart. Despite the fact they pimped her at a young age we all know that Britney really enjoyed being in the spotlight. If Britney Spears wants whats best for her she's going to need a serious wake-up call because sometimes people just don't listen even if they get the best help out there..

Her parents are a bit to blame too. Crazy is as crazy does.

I believe that her parents are very worried about her and her children and they do have her best interests at heart. I hope things will start getting better for Britney. This has been a long downward spiral.

Dad and the lawyer get to cut all the leeches out of her life now. Out of the houses, cars, finances, etc. Of course this will only be helpful as long as Britney can stay locked up and/or agree with them. If she checks herself out and goes home to hang out with Sam then it's all moot.

The lawyer actually has control over her finances...and I'm sure he cut all moneylines for Lufti, Simms, possibly Adnan, and any other vulture out there, that's been living off this carcass of a human being!!!

vanprooyen, why would cutting Britney Spears credit cards off make Jamie Spears look bad? He isn't cutting them off to stop Britney Spears from spending...he's cutting Sam Lufti and Alli Simms access off. You can't possibly think that Britney Spears didn't give these two leeches credit cards and the sort...if this is truly about protecting Britney, then cutting off her credit cards would one of the priorities!!!

I honestly feel none of them have her best interest in mind. Seriously, they're all waiting for her to do something that will end her in jail, or a psyche hospital and they'll get her money.

She needs to be medicated, the sooner the better. She's a mess. I'm surprised she hasnt killed herself yet, I would have lol. No offense.

Ginger, I really don't think her Dad is going to have the power to cut off her credit cards. She is 26 years old and she made the money herself. And I really don't think Pop is trying to make her parents look bad. Clearly, from the posts they've written, they don't like Sam or Adnan.

I bet you can set a stop watch on how fast Britney's dad gets up there to change the locks and kick Sam out, and cut off all her credit cards.

i think adnan and brit should go on oprah and talk about the new state of paparazzi/celeb relations. and maybe at the end tom cruise & xenu can bounce across a couple of couches and use their scientology crap to save brit brit. i'd watch.

I call FOUL on popsugar for not reporting all the facts in this article, which makes her parents look bad. They were asking for conservatorship with a third party making independent decisions so people wouldn't assume her parents were trying to control her money. They judge just gave it to her dad and an attorney, over some of her stuff. Possibly not everything.

It's a pretty sad state of affairs when there is no one in your life you can trust. This poor girl is very sick and one can only hope that mom and dad want to help their daughter. As a mom I know that your kids are always your babies, no matter how old. But then again I'll never understand why anyone would want to make their child a 'superstar' to begin with, it just seems really selfish to me.

did anyone else see the crap Sam was spewing to US Weekly? :O Seriously, the best part of the article I read on msnbc was that Jamie is allowed to change all the locks at her mansions and kick out anyone living there. :rotfl: Bye Sam!
