This surprises me.
In 2002, Britney Spears was named by Forbes magazine the “world’s most powerful celebrity” and was worth about $40 million dollars and was producing No 1. albums. Fast forward to 2021 and Spears’ net worth is around $60 million, which is much less than other celebrities that she grew up with in the industry.
For example, Jessica Simpson is well worth over $100 million and was coming up around the same time as Spears.
The speculation as to why Britney’s fortune is much lower has to do with her conservatorship being held by her father. According to documents and Spears’ attorney, her father has continuously mismanaged her finances and invested in various stocks.
Honestly, she should be worth a whole lot more by now.
