(Newser) – Britney Spears' dad is ready to give up some of his control over his daughter's life, but his move might just make the situation more awkward: Jamie Spears wants a court to add Jason Trawick as Britney's co-conservator. That's a bit weird considering Trawick is Brit's fiancé, notes a lawyer not involved in the case. "This is a very unusual situation, because generally you don't see conservatees get married," he tells People. "This could be a sign that the couple's wedding is around the corner."

As co-conservator, Trawick would share control only over Spears' well-being, not over her money, a source says. That means he'd be allowed to make decisions about her food and clothing, among other things. But another source insisted to People in the past that the conservatorship is a formality—which we assume means Britney is still allowed to dress and feed herself. Over on Vulture, the whole thing depresses Zach Dionne: "If 30-year-old Spears's huge album and subsequent major touring, glowing media parties assuming a successful turnaround, and $10 million offer to judge The X Factor aren't good enough grounds to prove her ability to manage her personal affairs, it's hard imagining what will be," he writes. "Hard and sad."
