Britney Spears is finally doing things her own way. After 13 years, the pop star's restrictive conservatorship finally ended in November of 2021, allowing Britney the freedom to dictate what she does and when she does it. And, while she has been mostly focusing on her new hubby and settling into life after her conservatorship, it looks like she's finally dropping her first new music since 2016.

Her single with Elton John drops Friday, and it’s kind of a really, really big deal.

Of course, the 40-year-old singer is one of the most successful pop stars of all time. From her start as a Mickey Mouse Club member to a sellout Vegas residency, she's had more than a few bumps along her road to fame, as fans saw in the documentary, Framing Britney Spears.

And as Britney has racked up chart-toppers, she's also padded her bank account. All those hits and brand deals add up to an "Outrageous" net worth. She took her own "Work Bitch" lyrics to heart and earned more than $30 million a year in eight of the last 20 years, Forbes reported in 2020.

But for a long time, the money wasn’t hers to spend—her father and lawyer oversaw her finances as part of her court-approved conservatorship. That has all changed now.

Here's exactly how she's made all her money over the years and how she likes to spend it.

Britney earned millions on her albums.

Her debut album, "...Baby One More Time," sold a whopping 10.6 million copies in the U.S., per Billboard. It was far from the last, and Britney did it again, just as she predicted.

In fact, her first two albums were so successful she earned almost $10 million in advance for her third, "In the Zone." The rest, "Britney," "Blackout," "Circus," "Femme Fatale," "Britney Jean," and "Glory," only racked up more sales.

Britney's the fourth best-selling artist in the U.S. according to Nielsen tracking. She has sold nearly 150 million records worldwide, according to Billboard.

Britney's world tours have been even more lucrative.

She has headlined 10 concert tours throughout her career. Her most recent, 2018's Piece of Me Tour, grossed an estimated $54.6 million.

Britney cashed in on her Vegas residency.

Britney started her four-year residency in 2013. When she left, she had earned more than $140 million in revenue. Her final performance alone brought in $1.1 million, which is a record for a single theater Las Vegas residency show.

Britney was set to start a new Las Vegas residency, "Domination," at a $507,000-a-concert rate. However, she put it on hold due to her father's health issues.

Her fans pay for all the Britney merch and perfumes.

Britney's Army is doing more than buying music and concert tickets. Her website sells everything from shirts with Britney's image to wine glasses with "sip me baby one more time" engraved.

Britney also has a billion-dollar collection of perfumes. She launched Curious, her first perfume, for $39.95 in 2004. Elizabeth Arden paid Britney $52 million for it, per Hollywood Reporter, and it was a hit. By 2013, over 500 million bottles of Curious had sold. Many more soon followed,

Britney has pretty high expenses.

As of 2020, about 25 percent of her gross income was going to her team (think agents, managers, and lawyers) and at least 40 percent goes toward taxes. Britney was also paying about $500,000 in child support annually to her ex-husband Kevin Federline, per Forbes.

Her legal team says her dad got some of her earnings.

In January of 2022, Britney's legal team claimed Jamie Spears “enriched himself” by “taking more than $6 million from his daughter’s earnings," per CNBC.

They also said Jamie “petitioned for fees to be paid to dozens of different law firms” to the tune of “more than $30 million.”

Jamie had been asking the court to force Brit to continue paying his legal fees after the conservatorship ended.

She recently got married.

Happy news for this star! Britney got hitched to her long-time boyfriend Sam Asghari in June 2022, in a private ceremony that was attended by famous friends like Madonna, Selena Gomez, and Drew Barrymore.

Britney wore 62 carats worth of diamonds for her big day that totaled an impressive $570,000, per Us Weekly. And Brit did sign an “ironclad” prenup, according to TMZ, which allows her to keep her entire fortune if things go south with Sam.

She just bought a new house.

The newlyweds just bought a house together right after getting hitched. They dropped a cool $11.8 million on the pad, per TMZ. Their new digs are in a Calabasas neighborhood—the same area where her ex, Kevin Federline, lives.

Britney stands to make some serious dough from her new single with Elton John.

ICYMI, Brit is finally dropping some new music after six years of silence. The terms of her new single with Elton John haven’t been publicly disclosed yet, but people are beyond pumped about this one. So…you can expect she’ll rake in some serious cash from the single.

What’s her total net worth?

Thanks to her totally massive career, Britney's various ventures, music deals, and appearances add up to a net worth of $70 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth.
