Britney Spears

Britney Spears is getting rid of a few things. Her conservatorship isn't one of them.

Despite speculation that the 28-year-old pop star was heading to court Friday to get the ball rolling on ending her father's control over her financial and medical affairs, E! News has learned that such was not the case.

Instead, money—both to give and receive—was the order of the day.

At the request of Geraldine Wyle, attorney for the conservatorship, L.A. Superior Court Commissioner Reva Goetz agreed to seal today's proceedings because of the "medical and personal information" being discussed.

Following afternoon recess, Goetz signed off on the conservators' request regarding "the disposal of certain property" and their desire to auction off a dress Britney wore to the 2008 MTV Video Music Awards to benefit Haiti earthquake relief.

No one divulged what said property was, only that it included "items no longer useful to Spears."

"She's perfectly satisfied with the disposal of property," the singer's attorney, Samuel Ingham, said after court today. And "she was very enthusiastic" about the Haiti donation, he added.

Britney wasn't around for the hearing postmortem, however.

The currently brunette "Circus" songstress, who showed up alongside dad Jamie wearing a black skirt and gray jacket, had to leave early because of a prior commitment with her kids.

She is "appreciative of the extra time and energy the court has given" to these proceedings, Ingham said.
