What Is Britney Spears’ Net Worth In 2022?

What Is Britney Spears’ Net Worth In 2022?

As one of the most famous pop icons of all time, Britney Spears is a star that hardly needs introducing.

As one of the most famous pop icons of all time, Britney Spears is a star that hardly needs introducing. The musician has sold over 100 million records worldwide since she first released music back in the 90s.

Some of her most famous hits include ‘Toxic’, ‘Oops!... I Did It Again’, and ‘…Baby One More Time’. 

However, the superstar hasn’t only found success as a singer, as she’s also known for her acting career and her best-selling perfume brand. 

With such an illustrious career behind her, many are intrigued to know how much the beloved pop culture figure is worth in 2022.

What Is Britney Spears’ Net Worth?

According to Celebrity Net Worth, Britney Spears has a substantial net worth of around $70 million. Although this is of course an enormous figure, this sum is relatively low for a pop star as successful as Britney Spears.

The 40-year-old has had an unbelievable career, becoming the best-selling female musician of the 2000s, selling over 100 million records globally. 

Historically Britney Spears has also been right at the top of the music industry financially, as she became the highest-paid female musician from 2002 to 2012, with her Circus tour in 2009 grossing a total of $131.8 million. 

Despite all this success, she doesn’t even come close to ranking in the list of richest female musicians, with the top 10 all having a net worth of over $400 million.

This leaves fans curious as to why Britney Spears’ net worth is comparatively low.

Why Is Britney Spears’ Net Worth So Low?

One reason the pop icon’s net worth is relatively moderate is because she isn’t bringing in as much income as she once was. Spears hasn’t made an album since Glory in 2016 and hasn't toured since 2018; the star has also stopped doing television commercials. 

But, the main reason why Britney’s wealth is so low compared to her pop peers comes down to her being put under conservatorship back in 2008 due to mental health reasons.  

This meant that all of her career and finances were controlled by her father, Jamie Spears.

During this 13-year period, her whole personal life was restricted, and her financial situation was managed poorly.

Since then Britney has paid millions in legal fees to fight against the life-controlling conservatorship, which was only terminated last year.
