Britney Spears is an American pop singer, actress, and entertainer who has a net worth of $115 million. Britney Spears became a major figure in mainstream pop music and pop culture with her 1999 hit “Baby One More Time” and the 2000 follow up single “Ooops! I Did It Again.” She is largely credited with reviving the teen pop genre during the late 1990s. To date, Britney Spears has sold over 100 million records worldwide. The Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) lists Spears as the eighth top-selling female artist in the United States.
Early Life And Rise to Success: Britney Spears began her performance career as a child with acting roles on stage productions and in television shows. Spears auditioned for a revival of The Mickey Mouse Club but was rejected for being too young to join the series. Spears subsequently became a client of a New York City talent agency and was eventually cast in The Mickey Mouse Club in December 1992. Her first studio album, 1999’s “Baby One More Time” was a major hit, debuting at number one on the U.S. Billboard 200. The Recording Industry Association of America certified the album two-times platinum after a month. The single “Baby One More Time” sold 500,000 copies on its first day, debuting at number one on the Billboard Hot 100, and becoming the fastest-selling single ever by a female artist. Spears’ subsequent albums produced a number of well-known hits like “Oops!… I Did It Again,” “I’m a Slave 4 U,” “Me Against the Music,” “Piece of Me,” and more. Spears has also dabbled in the world of acting and landed a starring role in the 2002 film Crossroads She also starred in the reality series Britney & Kevin: Chaotic with then-husband Kevin Federline in 2005. Spears has made a number of appearances on TV shows and designed a limited edition clothing line for Candies.
In 2012, Spears was hired as a judge on The X Factor. With a salary of $15 million, she was the highest-paid judge on a singing competition series in television history at the time.
As of 2020, Britney has released nine albums: 1999’s …Baby One More Time, 2000’s Oops!…I Did It Again, 2001’s Britney, 2003’s In the Zone, 2007’s Blackout, 2008’s Circus, 2011’s Femme Fatale, 2013’s Britney Jean, and 2016’s Glory.
The Umbrella Incident and Mental Health Issues: If you recall back in late 2007, Britney was struggling personally and professionally. She was constantly hounded by the paparazzi. She had been famous for more than a decade. She was a young mom. She was barely 26. She was in a fierce custody battle with ex-husband Kevin Federline. She lost custody of her sons after a judge found she was a “habitual, frequent, and continuous user of controlled substances and alcohol.” She basically lost her mind for a while. She was put under a conservatorship run by her father. You’d never know it now, but back then people thought that was the end. The Pop Princess had fallen and she would never get back up. Britney surprised everyone by staging a major comeback and now she’s better than ever.
Las Vegas Residency: In 2013, Britney signed a $30 million contract for a residency show at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas. Under the terms of the deal, she was to perform 100 shows over two years. She renewed the contract for her “Piece of Me” show to run through 2017. Her four-year Las Vegas residency resurrected Britney’s career, bank accounts, and reputation. She performed 250 shows during the run at Planet Hollywood. On December 31, 2017, Spears performed the final show of Britney: Piece of Me. Her final performance in her Las Vegas residency reportedly brought in $1.172 million, which set a new box office record for a single show in Las Vegas, and breaking the record previously held by Jennifer Lopez.
Canceled Residency and Work Hiatus: On October 18, 2018, Spears announced Britney: Domination, her second Las Vegas residency show, which was set to premiere on February 13, 2019, at Park MGM’s Park Theatre. Spears was set to bring home $507,000 per show, which would have made her the highest-paid act on the Las Vegas Strip. However, in early January 2019, she canceled the residency after her father Jamie Spears had colon rupture that almost killed him. Her team also announced that Spears was taking a hiatus from work indefinitely to spend time with her family.

But Wait! I Read That Britney Spears Was Only Worth $59 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. At some point, a portion 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 that year. Also according to documents obtained by TMZ, the conservatorship does not include at $100 million+ worth of other assets that Britney owns/controls.
