Britney Spears' Dad

Scores 7-Figure Deal

in Femme Fatale Tour

Britney Spears' daddy will get more than a million bucks -- possibly a lot more -- for his work as the manager of Britney's Femme Fatale Tour.

TMZ has obtained legal docs in Britney's conservatorship case, which show Britney's overall manager, Larry Rudolph, wants to give up 2% of his cut to Jamie, because daddy Spears has done such a great job -- Larry's cut is 10% of the gross.

We've learned Jamie has not gotten an extra penny for his work as Tour Manager -- a position he's held since February. 

According to the docs, Jamie negotiated a sweet deal for Britney with Live Nation, the tour promoter.  He's also coordinated Britney's personal schedule, and supervised her arrivals and departures.  He's handled finances, managed Britney's security to protect her from the paparazzi and made 200 - 400 calls and other communications a day on Brit's behalf.

Even though Larry Rudolph is voluntarily giving 2% of his cut to Jamie, it still has to be approved by the court, but that's just a formality.

It's unlikely she'd be together enough to tour if her dad wasn't around to keep an eye on her, poor thing.

It the point of this article to suggest that he doesn't deserve it, or that he does? I think anyone can see that he has worked very hard for every penny for his daughter, rarely getting paid even a fraction of what he actually would be getting if he was an employee and not her father. He's a good parent, and Michael and Dina Lohan would be well served to pay attention to what actually parenting looks like. Jamie saved his daughter's life, period.

So now we know why shes on tour, to make money for all the leeches around her because its funny how she cant testify in court and control life but she can still go on tour to make millions. Poor woman I feel really sorry for her because you can from her eyes that she is not happy at all and doesnt want to do this anymore from the way she performs now. The people around her have always been way too controlling around her since she first started out and thats why she probably had a nervous breakdown in the first place. I understand that she needed some support and people to look after her and her money before but shes obviously in a much better place now and I believe she can look after herself and they know that but they are keeping her under control because she will probably quit the music industry as soon as she has control over her life and that means no more money for them. They are all taking advantage of her.

Lets bot forget, she got a "bipolar" diagnosis during her 5150. The condition is chronic, she may be better, but she will never, ever get over it - she probably will need Dad for the foreseeable future.
Having said that, of course, who better to protect and look after her? He is doing a fine job by all accounts, and deserves every penny, and spread out over the YEARS he has had to shoulder this, doesn't seem like so much, does it?

Jamie saved Britney's life. If it wasn't for him, she'd be dead like Amy Winehouse. Who is better to take care of her than her own parent? He didn't step in for the money, he stepped in bc he got fed up of paparazzi, managers and other taking advantage of Britney. He didn't want to see his daughter on a stretcher again....

Good job Jamie!

if that is 2% of Larry's 10% then the tour is making HUGE money
so Jamie Spears has earned every cent by helping to save his daughter's life and career and making sure she's continuing to live her best life and is in a healthy relationship with a decent man who doesn't need her money
.
KUDOS TO JAMIE

TOO BAD AMY WINEHOUSE'S PARENTS DIDN'T TAKE A PAGE OUT OF HIS BOOK!

Britney is lucky to have a dad like that who she can trust and rely on. I think she knows it and will never forget how he saved her bacon.

If the dad is handling all finances, Security, communications and all tour logistics, what does the "overall manager" do to justify 4 times the compensation?

I agree that he deserves the money, because he really saved Britney, but why did Jamie and Lynn pimp their kids out to Hollywood at such a young age? I think any responsible parent wouldn't want their child anywhere near Hollywood until they are at least 25. Too many temptations and really shady, nasty things occur, especially within "young Hollywood".

She is very blessed to have parents who care about her and most importantly who are responsible.

It's gratifying to see a parent ACTUALLY PARENT in this day and age. It is a never-ending job, and it's inspirational to see what being a good parent really entails. And yes, I can think of a few other celebrities out there who seem to be lacking this type of parental devotion.
