Britney Spears made headlines when she recently appeared in court and revealed to a judge how much her guardianship has cost her – both emotionally and financially.
As of this year, Britney Spears’ net worth is extremely small compared to her earnings throughout her career.
She’s sold more concert tickets and albums than Jessica Simpson and Jennifer Lopez, but her net worth is far less. It is not considered wasteful. So why does Spears have a small net worth compared to the millions in earnings of years past?

Britney Spears is still in an ongoing court case. However, her lawyer was able to achieve a first victory against the father, so the guardianship is over. Also this week, the judge ruled that the globally successful pop singer will have 100 percent control of her fortune. Depositing a cash reserve is no longer provided. According to a report, lawyers for Britney Spears and her father broke out in a loud argument in court.
One last point has not yet been clarified: it is still unclear to what extent Britney Spears will have to bear the legal costs for her father or not. In the course of the last few months, the court process has caused the lawyers to pay a sum in the millions. The presiding judge will make a judgment on this in the future.

How did Britney Spears make her millions? 4 sources of income in detail
Spears’ wealth is, of course, tied to her music. While she doesn’t derive a large portion of her income from her pop songs, none of her other successful businesses would have flourished without her mega hits and major albums, which have helped build her as a real brand over the past two decades.
The artist is a Grammy winner who has sold over 100 million records worldwide. According to her label, she has sold 70 million records in the United States alone. The singer has released nine full-length albums, as well as numerous popular compilations and at least 25 top 40 songs, including several No. 1 singles, like:
- Baby One More Time
- Hold It Against Me
2. Live concerts
Though she’s not currently on stage anymore, she’s made a fortune performing to huge audiences on tour.
When she headed to Las Vegas for her first concert series , Britney: Piece of Me , the first bigger buzz started pouring in. The engagement lasted four years (2013 to 2017), and the singer performed nearly 250 times during that time, spacing out the performances so she could rest and live her life.
She made an insane $400,000 a night, and the entire production has grossed well over $100 million in ticket sales.
3. Britney Spears Perfume
“Britney Spears” is not only a person and a singer, but also a brand. CD sales, T-shirts and the like bring in money, but the real money maker today is their perfume line.
For more than 15 years, Spears has sponsored a perfume line that is one of the most popular fragrances in US history. The brand now includes more than 30 different items and has grossed over $1.5 billion, with the artist earning a large chunk of that money.
4. Actress and X Factor judge
Spears never strayed far from film and television, focusing on the music she was so well known for. In the past, she had starred in series such as Glee , How I Met Your Mother , and Jane The Virgin .
She was also in front of the camera in commercials for companies such as Pepsi and McDonald’s and was able to earn millions.
In the US, she raked in a hefty sum about ten years ago when she agreed to be a judge on The X Factor. The singer was reportedly paid $15 million for just one season on the casting show.
Britney Spears: Guardianship is ruining her fortune
The problem with Britney Spears’ fortune isn’t her expenses, but rather her father’s guardianship, which was set up in 2008 after she suffered several public nervous breakdowns.
Over the course of the guardianship, Spears has paid millions of dollars in legal fees. Most of her wealth is invested in brokerage accounts, real estate, and cash. In recent years, Spears has turned down a number of lucrative marketing and concert engagements.
In 2020, her attorney stated that she will not return to work until her father is no longer under guardianship.
