Family business: The New York Times reported that Britney’s father Jamie Spears earns more than $16K per month running her conservatorship, while her mother Lynne, 66, and brother Bryan, 44, are also on the payroll; seen in 2019
Last month, The New York Times revealed that Britney and Jamie Lynn’s father Jamie Spears earns $16,000 a month for being the co-conservator of his daughter’s finances, plus an $2,000 per month for office space rent.
Britney’s mother Lynne, 66, and brother Bryan, 44, also also on the payroll, though it hasn’t been reported how much they make off of the Toxic singer’s estate.
Jamie Lynn is the only member of Britney’s immediate family who doesn’t appear to be profiting from the conservatorship.
The financial benefits to her family have reportedly created tension between the pop star and her family in recent years.
‘Jamie, Lynne, and Spears’s brother, Bryan, have all spent years on Spears’s payroll, and, as friends who spoke with her at the time recalled, she was increasingly resentful of their efforts to influence her,’ The New Yorker reported on Saturday.
Even if she’s not directly profiting off her sister’s conservatorship, Jamie Lynn is still entangled in her financial affairs.

Back in August, it was revealed that Jamie Lynn had been appointed the trustee of Britney’s multi-million dollar trust in 2018.
According to The Blast, Britney created the trust in 2004 ‘to protect her vast fortune and provide for her children’s financial future.’
The Stronger hitmaker will be the sole beneficiary of the trust while alive, but upon her death Jamie will take charge of distributing the funds to her children Sean, 15, and Jayden, 14.
In court documents from August 2020, Jamie Lynn requested all assets from the trust be moved into ‘one or more accounts with Fidelity Brokerage Services with her as the custodian,’ the Los Angeles Times reported.

The controversy over Britney’s conservatorship ratcheted up after she blasted her treatment in a fiery statement to the judge overseeing her case.
Among the most shocking details was her claim that she has an IUD implanted that she hasn’t been allowed to have removed.
After saying she wanted ‘to be able to get married and have a baby,’ she claimed that ‘this so-called team won’t let me go to the doctor to take it out because they don’t want me to have children, any more children.’
Britney reportedly doesn’t trust her doctors enough to allow them to evaluate her to determine if the conservatorship can be ended.
‘She doesn’t have much trust for the doctors that she has worked with so far,’ a source close to the situation told People. ‘She feels like they have failed her.’
