Early Life And Rise to Success

Britney Spears began her acting career as a child, appearing in stage productions and television series. Spears tried out for a relaunch of The Mickey Mouse Club but was turned down because she was too young. Spears later signed with a New York City talent agency and was cast in The Mickey Mouse Club in December 1992. Her first studio album, “Baby One More Time,” debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 in 1999. After a month, the Recording Industry Association of America certified the record double platinum. The track “Baby One More Time” sold 500,000 copies on its first day, landing at number one on the Billboard Hot 100 and became the fastest-selling single of all time.

Spears’ subsequent albums included singles such as “Oops!… I Did It Again,” “I’m a Slave 4 U,” “Me Against the Music,” “Piece of Me,” and others. Spears has also dabbled in acting, landing a prominent role in the 2002 film Crossroads. In 2005, she co-starred in the reality series Britney & Kevin: Chaotic with her then-husband Kevin Federline. Spears has appeared on several TV shows and produced a limited edition apparel collection for Candies.

Spears was hired as a judge on The X Factor in 2012. She was the highest-paid judge on a singing competition series in television history at the time, earning $15 million.

The Umbrella Incident and Mental Health Issues

Britney was going through a personal and professional crisis in late 2007. The paparazzi followed her everywhere. She’d been famous for over a decade. Spears was a new mother. She was only 26 years old. She was embroiled in a custody fight with her ex-husband, Kevin Federline. Spears was deemed to be a “habitual, frequent, and continuous user of controlled narcotics and alcohol” by a judge, and therefore lost custody of her sons. Britney practically went insane for a bit. Her father placed her under conservatorship. You’d never guess it now, but back then, that was the end. The Pop Princess had fallen and would never rise again. Britney shocked everyone by making a major comeback.

Las Vegas Residency

Britney Spears signed a $30 million contract for a residency show at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas in 2013. The contract called for her to perform 100 shows over the course of two years. She extended the contract for her “Piece of Me” program till 2017. Britney’s four-year residency in Las Vegas restored her career, bank balances, and reputation. During her time at Planet Hollywood, she did 250 shows. Spears performed her farewell Britney: Piece of Me event on December 31, 2017. Her final performance in her Las Vegas residency reportedly grossed $1.172 million, setting a new box office record for a single show in Las Vegas and breaking Jennifer Lopez’s previous record.

Canceled Residency and Work Hiatus

Spears announced Britney: Domination, her second Las Vegas residency show, on October 18, 2018, with the performance planned to debut on February 13, 2019, at Park MGM’s Park Theatre. Spears was expected to earn $507,000 each show, making her the highest-paid artist on the Las Vegas Strip. However, she canceled the residency in early January 2019 after her father, Jamie Spears, suffered a colon rupture that nearly killed him. Her management also stated that Spears will be taking an indefinite leave of absence from work to spend time with her family.

Conservatorship

Britney was placed under a court-ordered legal conservatorship following a public meltdown in 2008. Britney’s finances were now in the hands of her father, James. James has power over every dime in Britney’s empire, from legal expenses to Kevin Federline’s child payments, thanks to the conservatorship.

According to court documents revealed in mid-2014, “Spears has a Net Worth of little more than $41 million, with $7 million in cash and the remainder in real estate.”

According to TMZ, the conservatorship was worth $36.1 million in August 2013. So it climbed by $5 million that year. According to documents acquired by TMZ, the conservatorship does not encompass a valuable collection of other assets owned/controlled by Britney.

Britney’s assets under conservatorship were estimated to be worth roughly $60 million in 2020.

Personal Life

Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake were in a relationship from 1998 through 2002. Who can forget the pop superstar pair and their matching denim ensembles on the American Music Awards red carpet in 2001?

Britney had a brief romance with Fred Durst of Limp Bizkit in 2002. After visiting a movie premiere with Colin Farrell in 2003, Spears became romantically involved with him.

After a night of partying in Las Vegas with her childhood friend Jason Alexander, they decided to marry on the spur of the moment in January 2004. Their marriage was then canceled 55 hours later.

Britney married her backup dancer Kevin Federline on October 6, 2004, shocking the world once more. They had two kids together, Sean (born in 2005) and Jayden (born in 2006), but divorced in 2007. She only paid Federline $1 million when they split, but she has promised to pay him $20,000 every month in child support until their children reach the age of 18.

She began dating photographer Adnan Ghalib in 2007. They split up in 2008.

Britney finally found stability in her relationship with her now-former manager, Jason Trawick, in 2009. They eventually got engaged in December 2011, but broke up in January 2013.

Spears began seeing David Lucado after Britney and Trawick called off their engagement. In a TMZ video, Spears discovered him cheating on her, prompting Spears to leave their relationship.

Between 2014 and 2015, Spears dated film producer Charlie Ebersol for eight months.

On the set of her “Slumber Party” music video in 2016, Britney met model and considerably younger man Sam Asghari. They’ve been inseparable since. Sam was born in the Iranian capital of Tehran in 1994. He is 13 years Britney’s junior, but he appears to be the perfect match for her.
