LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess) – A hearing Wednesday (Sept. 18) on the future of the court conservatorship that for 11 years has controlled the money and affairs of Britney Spears ended with no decisions made, reports The Associated Press. 

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Brenda J. Penny issued no rulings during or after the proceedings, and Spears was reportedly not listed among those in attendance.

Spears’ father, Jamie Spears, and mother, Lynne Spears, were both reportedly in court, as were a half-dozen attorneys with various roles in the conservatorship.

Jamie Spears temporarily stepped down from his role as conservator over his daughter’s personal affairs earlier this month, citing poor health, but has maintained financial control over her. Jodi Montgomery, who has long helped manage Britney Spears’ personal affairs, is now reportedly playing the role her father relinquished and was also in court Wednesday, according to the AP.

The hearing was reportedly cleared of the public and media so as to protect details about Spears’ medical, mental and financial issues, along with details about her two young sons, reports the AP. It followed a separate closed conservatorship hearing which took place back in May during which Spears addressed the court privately to raise issue with the arrangement that had been in place for years.

Following that hearing, Judge Penny reportedly asked for an analyst to review Spears’ situation. Results were expected to be delivered in court yesterday, however, the status hearing has been deferred to January, according to the AP

The court put Britney under conservatorship in 2008 during which time she was experiencing serious personal and psychiatric struggles, many of which played out publically.
