Britney Spears

The Financial Explosion

2/25/2011 5:15 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Britney Spears has just learned .... it pays to have a conservatorship, and pays VERY well.

Britney Spears Conservatorship

TMZ has obtained legal documents in the conservatorship case, showing that in December 2008, the assets controlled by Britney's conservators totaled $2,826,362.68. 

Now get this ...TMZ has learned ... exactly one year later -- in December, 2009 -- the assets controlled by the conservators swelled to $27,500,000 ... almost a 10 fold increase in 1 year.

Most of the gains came from Britney's wildly successful Circus Tour.

As for the assets at the close of 2008, there's an interesting breakdown.   Britney's "furniture and equipment" was valued at $1,551,026.  Her jewelry, furs and antiques totaled $264,988.

Now the figures are deceiving.  The conservators only control a portion of Britney's total estate.  She has a lot of money and property in various trusts and other business entitites, which the conservators do not control.

Obviously, she has problems handling money. It was for the best that a responsible person took over Britney's finances. She was probably heading for the poor house. How many stars/sports stars do we read about declaring bankruptcy because they were spending money left and right. Too many stars today have millions thrown at them and don't know that taxes have to be paid, handlers/managers/PR people, etc... have to be paid.

Isn't she old enough to take care of herself by now?
Give me a break!!
She is off the drugs and control of those freaks she used to hang out with. Why does she have to continue this crap?
Her daddy and others just want to big bucks to babysit.
ENOUGH ALREADY!!! Let her be a grown up and if she blows it, it's on her...

Who cares what Brittany makes. If I could sing and dance I would be rich too if that's what I wanted. I hate to think what I would make is anyones business.

Although Britney doesn't have the same shine as she did before her meltdown, she is at a better state. Remember that man who was at her home during her darkest hours? Britney is very fortunate that her father was able to get a hold of things before she completely lost custody of her kids.

I'm happy for her. Too bad Charlie and Lindsay won't get the same kind of help---that Charlie is imploding.

I'm happy for her. I'm glad she reconnected with her father who stepped up to the plate in all of this.

If a twit like Britney can ac***ulate that much money, one can only wonder what a true talent like Garth Brooks has managed to squirrel away. Mind-boggling!

I'm happy for Britney. It pays to be bipolar with the right support.
