What economic recession? The recording industry's venerable cash cow is such a strong producer, she can get milked like a madwoman and not feel a thing!
The judge in Britney Spears' conservatorship case has ruled that Jamie Spears, her dad, can get thousands more a month for the work he's been doing on her behalf. Jamie was getting $10,000 a month as the conservator of Brit's estate.
Today the judge adjusted that to $16,125 a month, in order to better reflect all the additional work Jamie did - including planning her tour for next year.
The judge also gave the green light for Jamie to get office space - Britney Spears will be on the hook for the full $1,200 a month for that, of course.
Seems steep, but then again, Jamie put the kibosh on Britney hanging out with seedy ingrates like Sam Lutfi and Adnan Ghalib. No fee is too high.
And there's more. Britney's bro, Bryan Spears, will receive $200,000 for services rendered prior to the time the conservatorship was established.
What that means, we have no clue. As for Britney's team of lawyers ... the bills for all of them put together are approaching a cool $1 million.
Then again, Britney Spears was earning $737,868 a month - and that was in 2007, before she even started working on Circus. We think she'll live.
