Crazy Is Really, Really Expensive

9/8/2008 4:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

New bills in the Britney Spears conservatorship case -- No, she's not really crazy, but she's forced to spend like a crazy woman.

According to court documents, Britney's court-appointed attorney, Samuel Ingham, billed her for 663.4 hours over a seven-month period. Grand total -- $248,625. Who says you can't put a price on a mother's love?

In a separate filing, the attorney for Britney's dad, Geraldine Wyle, wants herself some reimbursements -- including $655.50 for photocopying and $25 for a private room at the courthouse. Every little bit helps.

I work for divorce attorneys and $250,000 sounds like a reasonable amount for that much work. It would've cost twice that at the firm I work for...

The money is a drop in the bucket for Britney. Britney has fans who would buy recordings of her throwing up and call it music to their ears. The average Britney fan is not the brightest bulb in the package but they have lots of money to spend. May be a kind of sick relationship but it seems to work great for all concerned. Little people with no life can look up to a person like Britney and the mess they are in day to day. The day to day drudgery goes away for a moment while they listen to and watch Britney. I am not knocking either side because it is working for all parties!!!

A lot of the expense she brought on herself by NOT showing up for court dates or being hours late for appointments. So dont' blame it allll n her father and the attorney's trying to straighten out HER mess.Part of her rehab should be for her to get an education and to learn to be responsible for herself.

Get a rich and / or famous client, pad the bill. Staff meetings will uneeded interns and jr. associates, and bill full price per hour for each. Client has now easy way of disputing nessecity

I'm not an attorney, but I KNOW for a fact that $375 is extremely reasonable considering the scope of the case.
