Britney Spears is "unlikely" to regain control of her affairs
The 28-year-old singer - whose father Jamie Spears and lawyer Andrew Wallet were made co-conservators of her personal and professional affairs after her public breakdown in 2008 - is due to have a conservatorship status hearing on.
A source told RadarOnline.com: "Britney won`t be in court for the hearing. It seems highly unlikely that the conservatorship will end by the end of summer.
"Britney`s just not ready, yet. She has her good days and bad days. Britney has complex issues on a personal and professional level, and that is the reason the conservatorship is still in place."
The `Womanizer` star will only be permitted to regaincontrol of her vast fortune if Los Angeles Superior Court Commissioner Reva Goetz has enough evidence to justify ending the conservatorship.
It had previously been claimed Britney feels "completely out of it" because her father is so controlling.
A source said: "She is so out of it she just doesn`t care anymore. She just does what she`s told and is totally in her world.
"She`ll even call people at all hours of night for a general conversation and acts like it`s the middle of the day or something."
