Britney's ER plan

Okay, so the plan's from her advisors since she's a wack job and all. Given her age, a SWR of 3% is about 1.2M/year. Looks like she'll have to cut back on the 100k/month travel budget and 16k/month clothing budget. Man, must be tough, plus I'm guessing she has to pay for health insurance.

You'd think a 16K/mo clothing budget would include underwear, wouldn't you?

I assume that a court has ruled her incompetent to manage her own affairs?

Otherwise, I don't see how these (no doubt well-meaning) "conservators and advisors" have the authority to dictate her spending habits. Surely it is the legal and moral right of every adult to waste spend their money as they wish.

Answering my own question: I guess if conservators are involved, a conservatorship has been imposed; which means that she has indeed been declared legally incompetent.

Sorry but as I don't have cable, and don't read tabloid newspapers, I am not fully acquainted with Ms. Spears' situation!

The sad thing is these stories make more reputable sources like cnn.com - amazing what passes for 'news' with all the ills in this world.

You're probably lucky. Try as I might, it is hard to avoid her completely

You have to start cutting somewhere if you are going to LBYM.
