Glen Campbell’s wife, who was previously named conservator of the Alzheimer’s disease-stricken singer, will also serve as his guardian in a lawsuit filed against him by a production house, a court commissioner ruled.

Los Angeles Superior Court Commissioner Robert Harrison named Kim Campbell to the role earlier this month, according to court papers filed this week by the 79-year-old singer’s attorney, Vincent Chieffo.

“Glen Campbell suffers from advanced-stage Alzheimer’s disease and lacks legal capacity to make decisions on his own behalf in this action,” Chieffo’s court papers state. “Kim Campbell has (previously) been appointed conservator of the person and property of Glen Campbell.”

The singer married Kim Campbell in October 1982.

The suit filed late last September by the Record Company alleges its representatives contracted with Campbell in June 2011 to work with producer/director James Keach on a documentary called “Glen Campbell: I’ll Be Me.”

The Record Company alleges it was excluded from taking part in the documentary, although it had an exclusive agreement with Campbell.

In a related action, Chieffo filed additional court papers Thursday stating that the judge who’s overseeing the lawsuit granted an extension of the deadline to complete mediation efforts from this month until Sept. 28 to give both sides have more time to exchange information in the case.
