Britney Spears

The High Cost of Sanity

3/24/2009 8:47 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


SanityBritney Spears'
comeback -- priceless. Hiring lawyers to help make it happen -- $2.7 million.

Britney's conservators have hired a total of 17 lawyers and law firms to handle her affairs over the last 14 months. According to legal papers filed in L.A. County Superior Court yesterday, the fees just keep on piling up.

The attorneys representing Jamie Spears have racked up more than $1 mil in fees.

Britney has made the legal profession recession-proof -- clearly.

Well keep paying, because she is far from sane.

That's really sad! She has no life, she isn't sane, & yet they make her perform & use her like a bank! Some life huh?!

This is what happens to fools and their money!
She serves as a nice caveat about greed, sloth, recklessness, and getting what you ask for without caring about the price.
Now her life sucks and it's all on her!
May her life serve as a warning for others!

No need to wonder...    

That girl couldn't save her sanity if she wanted to, god forbid she step away from the stage and not have the cash to supporting her family's crooked empire.

She has no talent and is a druggie. Final bids? Do I hear $2 million for lawyer fees? No? Item unsold and will be taken off the market.

I just think it's sad how she works her ass off and yet her money goes to everyone else. Everyone is using her for her money including her parents. She's an adult. She shouldn't have a conservatorship. If she wants to blow her money, let her. If she wants to piss it all off on pink wigs, let her. It's time daddy and the attorneys go away. The amount her father is being paid is ridiculous. He's using her just like her lazy fat-ass ex is!

It's sad that she has no control over her money. They should NEVER have appointed her dad conservator! That's like the blind leading the blind! He may be responsible for her getting help and visitation with her sons but she will end up broke in the end!!
They should have appointed a neutral person with no ties to her. Someone with nothing to gain from helping her. He is just as bad as Kevin! Being paid to be a parent to his child! How despicable! He should be reprimanded not commended!!!

The comeback Pop Tart will be a Cash Cow to her attorneys until such time as she is deemed mentally fit to be released from the conservatorship. That's unlikely to happen, so her estate will continue to foot the bills. Hopefully, her financial advisors have made wise investments and the money will continue to be funneled to the proper channels. I wonder how much, if anything, Britney will see of her Circus Tour profits?
