Financial Challenges for Lynne Spears Amid Fallout with Britney
Reports have emerged suggesting that Lynne Spears, the mother of American singer Britney Spears, is facing financial difficulties following a bitter fallout with her multimillionaire daughter.
According to an insider, Lynne, aged 68, is currently grappling with bills and has resorted to working a part-time job as a substitute teacher to make ends meet.
Part-Time Teaching Gig to Cover Expenses
In an attempt to meet her financial obligations, Lynne has reportedly taken on part-time work as a substitute teacher.
She has already filled in for various classes at a local school. Substitute teaching positions in the area typically pay around $15 per hour, according to a source cited by Page Six.
Impact of Britney Spears’ Complicated Relationship
Insiders have suggested that Lynne Spears’ financial struggles are linked to her complicated and strained relationship with her daughter, Britney Spears, who is a well-known multimillionaire.
The ongoing rift between mother and daughter is said to have had a significant impact on Lynne’s finances.
Background on Financial Assistance Request
Last year, Lynne Spears approached her eldest daughter, Britney, for financial assistance. In April 2022, nearly five months after Britney’s conservatorship officially ended, Lynne requested reimbursement for the legal fees she incurred during the guardianship.
Her lawyers argued that the requested fee was in the six figures but paled in comparison to the millions spent by Jamie Spears, Britney’s father, to maintain the conservatorship.
Legal Response and Financial Support History
In response, Britney’s attorney, Mathew Rosegart, opposed the request, asserting that there was no legal basis for it.
He highlighted Britney’s role as the family’s primary breadwinner for years. Rosegart also revealed that Lynne had resided in a substantial house owned by Britney in Kentwood, Louisiana, and that Britney had generously covered Lynne Spears’ utilities, telephone services, insurance, property taxes, landscaping, pool maintenance, pest control, repairs, and maintenance, totaling approximately US$1.7 million ($2.9 million).
Contrast in Financial Situations
While Lynne Spears is reportedly facing financial difficulties, Britney Spears has been involved in numerous successful projects.
She recently released the track “Mind Your Business” with Will.i.am in July, teased her forthcoming memoir, “The Woman in Me,” set to be released on October 24, and announced the re-release of her 2002 film “Crossroads.”
An insider revealed that Britney stands to profit financially from the re-release of her romantic comedy movie in theaters on October 23 and 25.
