How much did Britney's conservatorship cost her?
One of the biggest issues concerning fans during Britney's career has been the establishment and maintenance of her conservatorship. Although the legal documents binding her to one have since been dissolved, the arrangement certainly cost her a whole bunch of money over the years.
According to documents obtained by ET, the star spent roughly $1.1 million in legal and conservator fees in 2018 alone. These fees paid Sam Ingham, who maintained her conservatorship, and covered other miscellaneous legal work that went into the arrangement.
This sum also accounts for the fees that Britney paid lawyers during that time, as it was stipulated in her conservatorship that she had to cover all of her legal fees out of pocket.
While the total cost of her conservatorship over the years has never been disclosed, it's clear that it extended well into the millions.
Court documents from 2018, per Insider, revealed that Britney's father also charged her nearly $900,000 on his own. According to the publication's account, this sum covered hundreds of hours of PR work over the time span of October 2018 to February 2019.
Beyond legal expenses, Britney had eclectic spending habits.
A bunch of other financial information regarding Britney's life at the time was revealed in that 2018 exposé as well. Per ET, Britney visited Target more than 80 times that year alone and spent a total of $400,000 at places like Home Depot; Walmart; Bed, Bath & Beyond; 7-Eleven; and Amazon.
On travel, Britney spent just around $70,000 in 2018, with $16,000 of that total sum attributed to a four-night vacation at the Montage Beverly Hills Hotel.
All of this information was disclosed as part of a complete financial reveal that Britney was required to provide during her conservator legal case.
