The Beach Boys’ Brian Wilson Placed In Conservatorship



A Los Angeles Superior Court judge has placed Beach Boys legend Brian Wilson under conservatorship.

The judge said he found “clear and convincing evidence that a conservatorship of the person is necessary” and that Wilson “consents and does not object.”

The conservators will manage Wilson’s personal and medical decisions because of what his doctor calls a “major neurocognitive disorder.” Two longtime associates, manager-publicist Jean Sievers and business manager LeeAnn Hard, have been appointed as the 81-year-old singer’s conservators.

A petition to seek oversight for Wilson’s affairs had been filed in January shortly after Wilson’s wife, Melinda Ledbetter Wilson, died.

The judge also agreed to a stipulation requested by Justin Gold, an attorney for eldest daughters Carnie and Wendy Wilson, asking that “all of Brian’s children who wish to be added will be added to the text chain from his nurses providing updates about Brian.”
