Britney Spears blew about $61 million in a year

Tbdbritneyspears050208 And since it's been more than a week since we brought up Britney Spears, we thought you all would like to know Miss Thing has lost up to $61 million since she shaved her head in February 2007.

In Touch says that dad Jamie Spears' became co-conservator of her finances three months ago, he's seen that her behavior -- which led to lots of legal bills, rehab stints, visits to shrinks and hospitals and making her unable to work -- has really added up.

“By not touring for her last album (Blackout), she lost out on $50 million,” estimates CPA Robert Bianchi, whom In Touch got to help them get such a ridiculously high number.

But an inside source says Jamie's done a lot to get her affairs in order, including curbing her spending and helping her get back in physical and fiscal shape.

“It’s staggering how much money has been used up,” the source says. “It’s been quite a challenge getting things under control. She’s spending about a fifth of what she used to." So she's down to around $11 million, then?
