Reese Witherspoon attends father's conservatorship hearing

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA (DEC 01, 2010) (HOLLYWOODTV) - A very pregnant Reese Witherspoon appeared in a Tennessee court to support her parents in an emergency hearing set up to determine if her father needs to be placed in a conservatorship. Last week, Reese's mother, Betty Witherspoon, submitted a lawsuit claiming that husband John D. Witherspoon had married another woman, even though the couple is actually married. In the legal files, Betty claims that she and her husband have lived apart for more than ten years , that John suffers from dementia, and that he has problems with alcohol, hoarding and overspending. On the request of the family, the court proceedings have been closed and the court record sealed, and Betty seeks to get her husband's new marriage annulled.
