Britney Spears' Dad In Charge 'Til 2009

A judge on Thursday extended the conservatorship over Britney Spears (photosBritney Spears photos)' business and legal matters for another five months, leaving control of her affairs in the hands of her father and a lawyer.

That means James Spears' control has been extended through the end of the year. The arrangement could end sooner, with another hearing in October, but for now, it looks like Spears will at least start 2009 being able to make her own decisions.

Her father has controlled all Spears' matters since February, after her months of erratic behavior and it seems to be working. The singer has avoided being in the news for all the wrong reasons over the last few months, and just last week settled a dispute with ex-husband Kevin Federline which will give her more time with her young sons.

Her father also dropped a restraining order against her self-styled former manager, Sam Lutfi. Although the family says that doesn't mean Britney wants to see him anytime soon: "Britney has made clear to everyone that she does not want to be further harassed or contacted in any way by Osama 'Sam' Lutfi, now or at anytime in the future," said her attorney.

Lutfi was a fixture during Spears' downward spiral and there were multiple reports that he drugged, bullied and controlled Britney during their time together.
