Brian Wilson Placed Under Conservatorship

Suffering from a “major neurodegenerative disorder” which has left him incapable of handling his personal and medical decisions, a Los Angeles court has signed off on Brian Wilson‘s conservatorship.

This week an LA judge agreed with submissions made by Wilson’s family three months ago who requested that the Beach Boys co-founder be placed under a conservatorship due to his cognitive decline and dementia, which they believed had worsened since the January passing of his 77-year old wife Melinda.

Now 81, the original submission declared that the superstar singer/songwriter has a “major neuro-cognitive disorder” and “is unable to properly provide for his own personal needs for physical health, food, clothing, or shelter”.

Carnie and Wendy Wilson, two of Brian’s seven children requested that all his offspring be added to a group text chain about their father, and that all concerned be consulted on medical decisions. The judge granted these requests.

A court-appointed lawyer for Wilson testified the singer was unable to name any of his children other than the two who live with him, and was “mostly difficult to understand and gave very short responses to questions and comments.”

According to the judge “I find from clear and convincing evidence that a conservatorship of the person is necessary.”
