Britney Spears' dad gets $16,000 a month



The Juice* is totally in the wrong business. While we slave away for a whole four hours a day for table scraps, Britney Spears' dad Jamie has found a way to strike it rich -- by being a parent to his own daughter. Who says there's a recession?

Tbdbritneyspears122408 L.A. Superior Court late Monday awarded Jamie an increase in payments he receives for acting as his daughter's conservator, giving him a $51,000 payout by increasing the amount he gets for doing the work, the AP reports. He had been getting $10,000 a month, but Commissioner Reva Goetz bumped that up to $16,000, throwing in back pay, as well.

Not only that, but he now gets another $1,200 a month to maintain an office, which Goetz said was justified because he's done so well getting Brit back on the straight and narrow.

Gee, who knew just being a dad for once in his life would be so lucrative. His wife Lynne is probably now scheming to make a fast buck by being a babysitter for daughter Jamie Lynn's child, Maddie. How does $75 per hour sound? What? That's what dad gets ...
