Britney Spears’ conservatorship has been a long-running saga, with the singer’s financial estate footing the bill for the costs associated with it. For the past 13 years, six main people have been paid for their services, including her parents and their lawyers.
In order to gain a better understanding of the payments made, Insider recently reviewed legal filings. These documents show that since the conservatorship began in 2008, the estate has paid out a total of $2.8 million to the six people.
The largest recipient of payments is Britney’s father, Jamie Spears, who has received $1.7 million since 2008. This includes $250,000 in 2020 alone. His lawyer, Andrew Wallet, has also been paid $1.2 million over the same period.
Britney’s mother, Lynne Spears, has received $450,000 since 2008, while her lawyer, Samuel Ingham, has been paid $200,000. In addition, Britney’s court-appointed lawyer, Vivian Thoreen, has been paid $100,000 since 2008.
Finally, the estate has paid $50,000 to a lawyer named Adam Streisand, who was hired to represent Britney in a dispute over the conservatorship in 2019.
It is clear that the costs associated with Britney’s conservatorship have been significant. However, it is important to note that the payments made to the six people mentioned above are only a fraction of the total costs. Other expenses, such as court fees and accounting costs, have also been paid out of the estate.
Ultimately, it is Britney’s financial estate that is paying for her lawyer and other costs associated with the conservatorship. While the payments made to the six people mentioned above are significant, they are only a small part of the overall costs.
