Britney Spears Ordered to Pay Lawyers Almost $400,000

Britney Spears has been hit with a legal bill of almost $400,000.

A Los Angeles court ordered the pop star to pay the cash to the numerous lawyers involved in all her legal affairs over the past three months.

That includes her custody battle with ex-husband Kevin Federline and her conservatorship issues.

At a hearing on Thursday, Commissioner Reva Goetz ruled that Spears‘ court-appointed attorney Samuel Ingham will continue to receive $10,000 a week and Andrew Wallet, the co-conservator of Spears‘ finances, will receive an advance of $100,000.

People.com reports Wallet has not received a salary for his services to Spears since taking over her estate issues with the pop star’s father, Jamie, in February.

Meanwhile, the law firm that won Jamie Spears control of his daughter’s affairs will also be advanced $175,000, and a lawyer representing the singer’s brother Bryan has been handed a $22,000 windfall.

Finally, Spears‘ new divorce lawyer, Stacy Phillips, has been awarded $75,000.
