Before Daddy Spears put almost every part of Brit Brit Spears’ life on a leash, shit was not looking good. Brit went completely off the rails, she was in danger of losing custody of the Cheetolings and it was looking like she was going to waste her entire fortune on swap meet wigs and gas station hot dogs. (Side question: Whatever happened to Assistant Carla? I desperately need an Oprah: Where Are They Now? episode devoted to Assistant Carla.) After Brit Brit was put in the hospital on a 5150 in 2007, Daddy Spears went to court to put her entire life under a conservatorship. The conservatorship was granted in January 2008 and it’s been in place ever since. That’s not going to change anytime soon either.
Since the keys of Brit’s life were handed over to Daddy Spears and her other conservators, she has gone back on the rails and the Britney Spears brand has made millions upon millions of dollars. The conservatorship made $14 million in profits last year alone. That doesn’t include all the money that Brit made outside of the conservatorship. Because the conservatorship is good for business and her mental health, Daddy Spears and the other conservators are not looking to end it anytime soon. TMZ says that the conservators are afraid that if they give Brit Brit the keys to her life back, she’ll pull out the pink wig of doom from storage and hook up with a soul-sucking leach like Sam Lutfi .
TMZ says that Daddy Spears has worked with her doctors and lawyers to keep every piece of her life stabilized. Even though Brit doesn’t have control of many things in her life, a source says that she has “substantial day-to-day freedom” to make decisions on her own.
Daddy Spears pays himself $16,000 a month plus expenses to be the CEO of his daughter, and if the conservatorship ended, he’d have to go back to being Adrienne Maloof’s personal chef. So there’s that. Also, part of me thinks that Brit Brit would be happier living on a farm in Louisiana and spending her days making her Cheeetolings gourmet meals like spegettios and baby pizzas. But I guess if it’s working, why fuck with it? And some of us could use a conservator every now and again. If I had one, they probably would’ve stopped me from making a terrible decision by spending actual money on renting Get Hard the other night.
