But Wait! I Read That Britney Spears Was Only Worth $41 Million!?
In September 2014, an article on Yahoo.com's homepage created a lot of confusion by stating that according to court documents "Spears has a net worth of slightly more than $41 million, almost $7 million in cash and the rest in real estate." Unfortunately, what this article failed to mention is that $41 million is just the value of the assets under conservatorship with her father. Roughly five and a half years ago, a chunk of Britney's current and future finances were placed in a trust that is controlled by her father. This happened back when Britney was in the midst of a major public head-shaving meltdown in order to preserve at least a some of her wealth going forward. What the Yahoo article leaves out (or does not know) is that $41 million is just the value of that conservatorship that was created in 2007. According to TMZ, in August 2013 the conservatorship was worth $36.1 million. So it has increased $5 million in the last year. Also according to documents obtained by TMZ, the conservatorship does not include at $100 million+ worth of other assets that Britney owns/controls. Hence our $185 million net worth estimate above.
