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.

So let me get this straight TMZ, Britney funds increased after she went on the Circus Tour and you are reporting it a year + later? Way to be on top of things.

As Charlie would say, Britney is winning.

And she's deemed mentally incompetent to spend her money or make any decision regarding friends, children, etc. Why doesn't her family let her stop instead of dying a slow death with her music. She is unable to dance or sing. The American Idol contestants have twice the talent she has and everyone (except her old fans) know it.

27m seems like a pathetic amount for Britney to have. She's been a pop superstar for 12 years.

@8 I'm sure that's just her liquid assets. As it said later in the post she probably has investments, real estate and other stuff that isn't liquid and isn't controlled by her conservators.

Britney needs to rock the pink wig again. I miss those days.

WTF? So you're saying Britney only had 2 million dollars to her name? It's been reported that she is worth 100 million. Maybe they only let conservators control a fraction of the money so they don't steal it all.

CriticAL, that's not all she has. Like the post says, the conservators only handle a portion of her money.

So, TMZ these numbers are meaningless, since they're only partial. Britney had to ahve more that 3 mill in 2008? Get real.

lots of concert tours report a lot of money, what they don't report is what is actually left after everyone is paid off.

What is left after all the travel, hotels, food, tour staff, crew, security, dancers etc are paid?

Not much.......

It'd make SO much more sense if you changed your name from TMZ to Celebrity Jizz Junkies - whatever they squirt out you swallow it with GUSTO and a smile. At least be honest about it CJJ.
