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.

Lol, so many haters. Don't hate at the fact that she has "no talent" yet she's making more than you'll ever make in your lousy pathetic lives. And in a Vh1 Special in 2004, Britney was worth $150 million. So I'm pretty sure that after 7 she's worth about $300 million now since just last year by doing NOTHING she earned $64 million. The money that has the conservator ship has access to are just liquid assets and not her entire net worth.

Glad to see that Ms. Spears has regained her footing. Still, I think that she's trapped in a career that she could do without. Sadly, she's got so many people hanging on to her as their source of income. K-Fed, Mom & Pop, all y'all, you oughta be ashamed. Give the girl control of the money that she's worked so hard for and earn your own keep. Best thing for her would be to get away from the pressure of " the biz " and just enjoy Britney time. Brit... just focus on you and the kids and forget about all the glitz and the hangers-on. You're a beautiful girl, that's was harmed by all of the pressures that have been put on you since you were a kid. Always having to be "on" is tough!!! Just be yourself and forget about the image, then you'll really heal. Good luck kid... glad you made it to the other side of the storm!!!

I never could understand what people saw in this girl. How pathetic that she's only worth $27 mil. Even with all of the problems she had I didn't think her fortune would be that paultry. She better diversify & take some lessons from JayZ. The bitch can't sing for **** & when people really get tiref of her lip syncing then she'll be back in the Louisiana trailer in no time.

Either way you look at it, Britney is worth over 120 million dollars. She just bought a 20,000 square foot, nearly 20 million dollar mansion. People will find negative things to say and say she's stupid, but if she was smart enough to make a fortune of over 100 million, she couldn't be that dumb. To those who don't quite get it. Britney is big business, and publications such as TMZ and many others make their bread and butter by writing stories about her. Now THAT is the real truth.

again, the money for that 20 million dollar home she just bought had to come from somewhere. And obviously there is a lot more than 27 million floating around. You people who think that are just fools.

the conservatorship must find,get and protect " ALL ", the money and property the conservatee owns. within 90 days!.

sorry!, but there are no hidden trusts or hidden real estate.
and no "HUNDRED MILLION DOLLAR PLUS NET WORTH".

this also proves she made just over "20 million dollars", from her tour!. not the one hundred million dollars here fans dream about.

if you know, how and where to look, you will find out her net worth when marrying (K-FAT), was ($31.2 million dollars).

Britney enjoy your children and your life but NEVER GET LEGALLY MARRIED AGAIN. You will keep your financial assets and save yourself a lot of personal grief. Look at Oprah, she is a billionaire and she and Stedman are not getting married and you shouldn't either. Good luck to you Britney, I'm routing for you.
