Brian Wilson granted new conservatorship following his wife's death

The Beach Boys founder's health care needs will be overseen by his longtime manager LeeAnn Hard and longtime publicist Jean Sievers.

Brian Wilson is back under a conservatorship. The family of the Beach Boys icon filed for a new conservatorship in February 2024, following the death of Wilson's wife, Melinda Ledbetter.

According to court documents obtained by PEOPLE, their case was approved on Thursday. Two conservators have been appointed for Wilson: His longtime business manager LeeAnn Hard and longtime publicist Jean Sievers.

Wilson's family said in their February court filing that the legendary musician is suffering from a “major neurocognitive disorder (such as dementia).” This week, the court confirmed that Wilson “lacks the capacity to make his own healthcare decisions.”

Under the new conservatorship, Hard and Sievers are “granted authority to authorize the administration of medications appropriate for the care and treatment of Major Neurocognitive Disorder.” But when it comes to "material-related healthcare decisions," they must also consult Wilson’s children: Carnie, Wendy, Dakota Rose, Dylan, Delanie Rae, Dash, and Daria.

Wilson's daily needs were previously attended to by Ledbetter, but she did not appoint a health care successor before her death. The new conservatorship is meant to ensure that all of Wilson's care will be addressed going forward.

"This decision was made to ensure that there will be no extreme changes to the household and Brian and the children living at home will be taken care of and remain in the home where they are cared for by Gloria Ramos and the wonderful team at the house who have been in place for many years helping take care of the family," Wilson's family told PEOPLE in a statement in February.

Wilson has had a previous experience with conservatorship. During the '80s, he lived under the strict supervision of psychologist Eugene Landy, in order to deal with Wilson's mental health issues. But as Landy became too controlling, Wilson's family filed a conservatorship lawsuit in 1991 to dissolve the arrangement with Landy. Wilson married Ledbetter in 1995.
