Ouch: Britney Spears Socked with $400K in Legal Bills

by at . Comments

A court ordered payment of nearly $400,000 to the numerous lawyers involved in Britney Spears' affairs Thursday - with the pop star footing the bill.

All the attorneys have been working on the case for under three months.

Samuel Ingham, Britney Spears' court-appointed attorney, will continue to receive a fee of $10,000 a week, Commissioner Reva Goetz ruled.

Andrew Wallet, the co-conservator of Spears' finances, will receive an advance of $100,000. Wallet had not been paid since becoming involved.

Britney Spears is feeling blue after the many thousands in legal bills she's just been slapped with by an L.A. judge. Or maybe it's just her top.

The firm which won Jamie Spears control of Britney Spears' legal affairs will be advanced $175,000, and a lawyer for Britney's brother Bryan Spears will get $22,500, while Stacy Phillips, Britney's new divorce lawyer, will get $75,000.

Jamie Spears, the singer's father, and Andrew Wallet will remain in control of her life until at least a July 31 hearing. They recently won a restraining order against bad seed Sam Lutfi until that date, as well.
