In a New York Times article that poses the question of whether Britney Spears is ready to take control of her life from her conservators, authors Serge Kovaleski and Joe Coscarelli answered the question many have wondered: how much money do you get for taking care of Britney Spears?
Since 2008, Britney's personal and financial choices—including those as minute as buying Starbucks, which she does a lot—have been under the charge of her conservators. Alongside her lawyer Andrew Wallet, her dad Jamie is charged with the task of making sure the world doesn't get any more Britney circa 2007.
Her conservators seem like they've been doing a good job: Britney's posting lots of hot Instagrams, plus sweets ones of her sons. In the fall, she signed a $35 million contract for a two-year extension to her Las Vegas show. All this ka-ching for Britney means ka-ching for her conservators.
According to the Times, Jamie Spears snags about $130,000 annually, plus his office rent is comped. His salary gets a bump of 1.5 percent of the revenue from his daughter's Las Vegas residency, which clearly makes a ton of cash. Like Brit-Brit, her dad's bills are also recorded.
In total, Britney's conservatorship has cost her about $8.9 million, which is equivalent to the number of times you've hummed a Britney Spears song in your head.
