Britney Spears' doctor dies suddenly amidst conservatorship case

- Britney's doctor, Timothy Benson, who has supervised the singer's medical treatment, passed away, TMZ reports.

- cause of death is unknown, but they claim it's due to an aneurysm.

- Earlier this year, the judge requested an overall mental health evaluation on Britney, as well as interviews with anyone connected to the conservatorship. Dr. Benson was a key player in that he could advise the judge whether the conservatorship was medically needed or not.

- One major question the judge needs answered is if Britney’s medical treatment has helped or harmed her. Earlier this year, Britney allegedly told the judge she was being forced to take medication and being held at a mental health facility against her will.
