You Can Bank on Britney

12/22/2008 9:25 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The bank of Britney Spears has just opened its vault -- again.

The judge in the conservatorship case has just ruled Jamie, Brit's dad, can get thousands of extra $$$ for the work he's been doing for his daughter. Jamie was getting $10,000 a month for his fee as the conservator of Brit's estate.

Today the judge adjusted that amount for the entire year to $16,125 a month, to reflect all the additional work Jamie did -- which includes planning her tour for next year.

The judge also gave the green light for Jamie to get office space -- Brit will pay $1,200 a month for that.

And there's more. Brit's bro, Bryan Spears, will receive $200,000 for services he rendered prior to the time the conservatorship was established.

And the lawyers ... the bills for all of them are approaching a cool $1 million.

Who says times are tough?

She probaly takes care of him financially anyway. He shouldn't get paid anything for being a dad, thats what hes supposed to do.

That's sad. Most parents and other family members help their children through hard times out of unconditional love for them. That's too bad,with friends like this...

A VERY SMALL PRICE TO PAY FOR SAVING HER LIFE. MUCH LESS THAN THE VULTURES IN HER LIFE WERE SUCKING FROM HER BEFORE DAD CAME ONBOARD.

for now    

Britney is a good person who needs our prayers.
I hope she realizes that there were many people who
helped save her life,most of all ,her dad.
She is very lucky to be alive.

Whatever    

I would do a better job. And I would do it from less than half of what she is paying her father.

No wonder why they're cracking the whip so hard! They've got to get all they can before she blows the final gasket and becomes a ward of the state!

I bet Britney's relatives have it twisted around so Britney believes that her family members are paying Her money
for the honor and privilege of representing her.

He is giving her full time care if he wasn't there she would be in a straight jacket. I love her to death but we all know she can not control her own life. She needs someone who has her best interest at heart and who better than the person who helped bring her into the world. You know he loves her. That is all that matters. I think that 16000.00 is a bit redic though and office space can't he just get office space from a extra room from her house. What do I know I'm just a poor schmuk

Astonishing that anyone would fault Jamie Spears.

He's an unsung hero in the rehabilitation of Britney's life. Absent him, she would no doubt be ruined or, worse, dead by now.

Britney has demonstrated she has no capacity for self-management. Thankfully her management is no longer coming from Sam Lutfi or that Adnan loser (whatever his name is ... I'm too lazy to look it up).

Frankly, I think Jamie Spears should be recognized as a man of great honor and integrity. He stepped into the mess *she* had created; he did so with no self-generated fanfare; he has not sought fame or celebrity from this engagement; he has operated entirely within the guidance of the court ... in short, he has been a selfless gentleman during this process.

Now compare that to Lindsey Lohan's parents, or Britney's mother for that matter.

He should take care of her because she is his daughter and he loves her...no other reason. It is sad how they line up with their hands out. Britney already does take financial care of them. I live near where she grew up and I have seen the house she built for her parents about 5 years ago. It is amazing. They drive nice vehicles, travel, etc... he is her parent, not her employee.
