Britney Spears’ father Jamie Spears is calling the shots on her upcoming tour, and getting paid handsomely – yet saving her a bundle at the same time.
Come again? Well, as director of Spears’ Femme Fatale Tour, which kicks off today in Sacramento, Calif., he’ll be doing the work of multiple individuals.
Jamie has asked the judge overseeing Britney’s conservatorship to give him money for directing and managing the logistics of the Spears adventure.
The elder Spears hasn’t specified the amount he wants, but it could be in the hundreds of thousands … actually hella cheap by market standards.
Five people managed the singer’s 2009 Circus Tour, with the amount reaching seven figures. This time, it’s Jamie’s show to run. You get the idea.
Whatever Jamie gets, it will be on top of the $16,000 a month he makes serving as overseer of all things Britney – legal, musical, medical, etc.
Money well spent. Clearly her career is chugging along nicely, and have you seen any Britney Spears pictures lately? The girl is looking great …
