Jason Trawick, Britney Spears's fiancé, was approved as a co-conservator for the pop star by a Los Angeles judge yesterday.

Trawick - who was also previously Spears's agent - was granted permission to help the singer's father Jamie Spears manage her personal affairs, The AP reports.

"Jamie's thrilled," his attorney Geraldine Wyle told reporters following the hearing. "It's all in the family."

Wyle also clarified that the request to add Trawick came at Britney's request, not Jamie's.

Trawick will not have any legal control over Britney's multimillion-dollar empire, which is overseen by her father and another attorney.

Dad Jamie Spears has held legal control over his daughter and her finances since February 2008 after the singer suffered a breakdown.

The conservatorship will be lifted only after a judge is convinced, on the advice of the singer's doctors, that she's healthy enough to manage her own affairs.
