She suspiciously has less money than other pop stars
Britney Jean Spears (born December 2, 1981) is an American singer, songwriter, dancer, and actress. She is credited with influencing the revival of teen pop during the late 1990s and early 2000s, for which she is referred to as the "Princess of Pop". After appearing in stage productions and television series, Spears signed with Jive Records in 1997 at age 15. Her first two studio albums, certified diamond in the US, ...Baby One More Time (1999) and Oops!... I Did It Again (2000), were global successes and became two of the best-selling albums of all time, along with making her the best-selling teenage artist of all time.
With the #FreeBritney movement, the pop star became the focus of attention again.
Now, a Hulu documentary, “Framing Britney Spears,” has put the battle back in the spotlight. Some weeks ago, her father lost his bid to hold onto his control over her investments as the battle for her estate continues.
Let's take this opportunity to recap Britney Spears’s net worth
At the peak of her career in the early 2000s, Britney was one of the highest-paid entertainers in the world. In 2002 alone she earned $40 million from touring and record sales.
As of this writing, Britney's world tours have grossed $500 million worldwide.
Between 2013 and 2017, Britney earned $350-$500 thousand per night performing at a Las Vegas residency.
While nobody can confirm these specific figures, it’s clear that Britney’s fortune is not growing in the same way other pop stars’ fortunes have been growing. In eight years out of the past two decades, Britney earned over $30 million annually.
Spears also makes money from merchandise. Her website sells everything from clothing to wine glasses, ranging from $14.95 to $64.95.
She also invested in real estate. Britney has owned a number of homes in the Los Angeles area over the years. In 2017 she sold a mansion in Thousand Oaks for $7 million. She purchased this mansion in 2012 for $6.7 million. She owns a second mansion in Thousand Oaks that sits on 20-acres. She purchased this mansion in 2015 for $7.4 million. Back in 2003, she sold a house for $3.85 million to the late actress Brittany Murphy. She formerly owned an estate in Malibu which she sold for $10 million in 2007. She took a $2.5 million loss on a Beverly Hills property that she bought for $6.75 million and sold for $4.2 million. She also owns a large family compound in her native Louisiana.
