Britney Spears' Dad

Bargain Basement Tour Director

6/16/2011 4:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Jamie Spears is going to court to get some serious money for directing Britney Spears' Femme Fatale Tour that kicks off today in Sacramento, CA... but turns out he'll be the best bargain in town.


TMZ has obtained legal docs that Jamie has filed with the judge in Britney's conservatorship case ... asking the judge to give him money for directing the tour and managing the logistics of the tour.

Jamie has not specified the amount of money he wants, and sources tell us it hasn't been calculated yet.  Sources tell us the amount will be in the hundreds of thousands of dollars, but it's crazy cheap for what Jamie is doing.

To give you some perspective, 5 people managed the 2009 Circus Tour.  Although the amount they made is blacked out in the legal documents, we were able to discern the amount is in the 7 figures.

With Jamie on board for the Britney Spears/Nicki Minaj Femme Fatale Tour, 3 of the 5 positions will be eliminated.  Thus, if Jamie gets a 6 figure salary for the upcoming 8-month world tour, everybody wins.

Whatever Jamie gets for the tour ... it will be in addition to the $16,000 a month he's pulling in for serving as Britney's conservator.

I agree that her dad saved her. I just can't imagine how it feels to pay your dad $16K a month to control your every move. She can't even have a cell phone. But she has herself to blame for that.

When Brit was young her dad liked to drink so it was Brit who supported the family. Dad turned his life around and now he's living off of her. Did he help her yes but I question when every member of her family "works" for her. She has enough money a mentally ill person should not be on a dog and pony show to make more money for her family.
By the way the only "real" song that Brit made (not committee made) was "you want of piece of me."

She'd be DEAD if her father hadn't taken over for her. Joe Jackson he is NOT.

Her father deserves every cent he is making. He's done a damn fine job of keeping her life on track so she can not only enjoy her music career but also her children. They would've surely been taken away from her forever had her father not stepped in. She would probably have died as well. She understands that her father is her lifeline, you can bet that's why she doesn't fight the conservatorship!

It is painfully obvious that she is going to be under the conservatorship the rest of her life. She is probably taking a large amount of medication.

I don't understand why some of you are praising him. He shouldn't get any money, AT ALL. What kind of parent demands money for raising their child? Don't get me wrong, Jamie did straighten her out, maybe even prevented her death...But does that require payment? Celebrity or not, Britney is Jamies child, not his bank.

Wow - why are there so much haters for Jamie Spears??? Yes, he is the dad. She is making a lot of money so better to employ a dad who has the better interest in her doing well than other strangers. I have yet to see her dad trying to take the lime light. Wow Brandon, if you were making millions, you would take advantage of your dad with free labor??? You would not want to pay your dad for services rendered because he is your dad??? But you would pay someone else who may or may not be doing a good job that he is doing. Get real and don't be so cheap.

Sloane - you nailed it. Look at some of these other parents... Dina Lohan, Miley's mom, Kim K's mom.

Jamie is a role model for all parents. He is not extorting her for millions of dollars, he's taking a very small payment for his time and expenses. He does after all have expenses and he had to quit his earlier job to take care of her. She's worth tens of millions, and he's making her worth more. He is asking for crumbs. I seriously can't believe some of these people criticizing - that if they had wealthy kids that they had to drop everything to take care of, while still having their own living expenses, that they would not look to get compensated for those costs.

Seriously - this guy is a hero. In a country where many parents either ignore their children or make excuses for them, or take advantage of them... He saved his daughter personally and professionally, and gave up a LOT of his life to do so.

Quit funny. I gotta laugh. He'll be bargaining for the best he can.

He'll make out just fine. I'm sure he's getting a big chunk of her estate in her will, and chances are high that he'll outlive her.
