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?

They're all sick in the head! I have helped my mom out so many times now and not just on surviving, but helping her on investments, vehicles, and all other kinds of stuff she feels might make life more fun or easier-and I am by no means rich. If I were a multi-millionaire, she and some of my closest friends would want for nothing reasonable and sometimes even the unreasonable! There's nothing heroic about that, it's just how normal people function in my sphere of the world. And I would also try to do some good for others too, including animals. It's amazing what dropping a little unexpected kindness can do at times and it isn't always money that does the job. Sometimes it's as simple as buying an extra sub sandwich and quickly dropping it off to the guy without a leg (and a veteran sign which looked quite legit) who looks like he could use and appreciate a small break.
Oh but not Ms. Self Centered Spears! Oh no! She spent half her time dumping friends and family from her life and wasting countless millions on selfish ventures, dirt bags, drugs, partying, and whatever bit of nastiness or stupidity fit her fancy! You can damn well bet that if she could rid herself of these people (like her dad) and run hog wild through the streets again like she did and still craves to, she would be doing that exact thing! She'd probably do it literally to death. Someone like her must be riddled with self loathing and loathing for others, as she does the things that show it. I have no pity for fools like her. The breaks she's gotten she squandered and the breaks she is getting now she bitches about! She has caused much more suffering around her than could ever happen by mere accident or misfortune. She wallows in it! So much potential to at least makes some amends, if not some outright good, but what does she do? Nothing. Why would anyone pity her, let alone practically sanctify her? You make your own good fortune in life and if it always ends up badly, it's time to look in the mirror.

Jamie deserves every penny he is paid and then some. He is clearly devoted to her personal and business well being and seems to be doing a fantastic job. I didn't read every post but I didn't see one that would compare to the amount of time he invests in her and her business dealings. This is not your normal situation where a relative helps a relative out - this is a full time job and I'm glad he is there to do it. Can't wait to see her 3/26!!!

I think K-fed got the best deal, $20,000 a month for another sixteen years. Chrissy

Sorry ... he deserves it and earned it. His entire life is on hold -- managing her to sanity is a full time job. There's no way he can earn a living and continue to manage her the way he is. And he's pulled her out of the gutter and given her a career back.

Truthfully I think he deserves more but is doing it for a reasonable sum because he IS her father.

Here's an about if the judges put all of brits money into trust funds for her children and had brit loaded on to a space shuttle and shot off into outer space? That way the boys would always have plenty of money (i'm sure the therapy they will need to try to recover from the damage she has done to them will be quite expensive) and we would never be subjected to brits version of what talent and music is again. Now that sounds like a plan!!!!

Sounds like someone above is having a mid-life crisis and is trying to sound youthful and cool! Epic fail!

Dad and bro getting paid. Mamma writing a book. Your move Jamie Lynn.

It is sad that a parent feels the need to be paid to help their child out in a crisis. 16,000 a month is ridiculous. If he can't work a regular job anymore then some compensation should be made but come on- it's called being there for your child not milking her for all u can.

So what? $1600 is probably a lame night of nose snow and booze for her! What a petty, greedy thing to snivel about such a small amount! Just how much do you think it would cost for her to be put under 24/7 protective custody by anyone else? Because that's what it would come down to, so quit yer bitching!

For sure if I was ever in that father would give up everything to be right by my side and not expect a dime. He would move the earth for me if he could and expect nothing in return. Who cares if he had to give up his catering business for his daughter....HE'S HER FATHER, HE SHOULD. Give me a call and I'll look after you for FREE! Because frankly if you give two sh*ts about someone...that's what you do.

his life is on hold????? When he's golfing with Kfed. She has all the professionals she needs. HE WAS A COOK!!!!!!! He'a living the good life off his daughter's back. There are many nutty people in Hollywood name one other who got all of their rights taken away like Brit.

No wonder this girl is so messed up. EVERYONE, even her family, takes advantage of her. That's probably the worst thing-that the mother, father and brother would do what you would expect strangers to do. They should all be ashamed. But I'm sure they're not.

Hahahaha, he's sucking her dry! That's why she's pumping out crappy songs, to keep her little parasites in the money. What an idiot, letting people take advantage of her like that. She's a grown woman, she should get control of her life and cut them loose.

I'm sorry but if you can't "bank" on your family to make you feel save (phisycally, emotionally, mentally) who can you "bank" on???
No wonder she had a mental breakdown. Live is tough enough... your family is supposed to be the safe haven! Hers doesn't seem to be very aware of that... sad. :(
