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.

some people here are just plain stupid. you all give britbrit a hard time for being "talentless" or "worthless" yet some of you cant even read a simple post. as written above, 27 million is just a fraction of her estate. she probably have atleast 100million+ total. please read the whole friggin post before commenting.

Who cares how much she has? She can't even spend her money. She can't even see anyone she wants to. She has no control of her life or her money. After a significant amount ... other people come in and handle it for you and make money off of your money, etc. She is so mentally ill that a judge will not even let her off of a conservatorship. Can her money buy her sanity????

TMZ: (The Morning Zoo) I really don't understand why you'd publicly display this. Why is this any of our Business at all???? Britney is a singer/entertainer. Her earnings just aren't for the world to see. I think that's really strange that you'd go so out of your way to report this publicly.

Why did you print this story? It's none of our business how much money she does or doesn't have.

I would like to see one candid picture of Britney where she didn't have her mouth gaping open like a porn star.

It was cute, when she was 16 or 17, but hey Britney, it isn't cute anymore!
