Big Money Conservatorship

According to a declaration filed in Los Angeles Superior Court, Britney Spears owes $338,414.87 to Stacy Phillips, one of the shorter-term members of her legal team, for $700-an-hour services rendered between March and June. Phillips says that’s a discount, the tab includes “time already deducted as a courtesy,” time “written off” and $75,000 that she expects to get next month.

Attorney Laura Wasser's most recent bill, encompassing two months of counsel, totals $60,075.

And the firm of Luce Forward Hamilton & Scripps is requesting $110,000 of the $220,600 it says it’s owed for 402 hours of representing the conservatorship.

Ain't it great? A license to steal! They must be singing, too - songs of joy!

Poor Brittney, she's become a cash cow. They'll never let her go, until they get it all that is.

How generous of them to give Brittney a "courtesy" discount!?

She's the perfect victim..young and rich. It won't be long and we'll see articles about how she's now bankrupt..

No one would want a stranger in complete control of them when a family member is willing and able to take that responsibility.

I am struck by the coldnes of both conservators. It's almost as if they don't have parents themselves. Or, perhaps they just don't think it will happen to them.
