In an interview aired on ABC’s “Good Morning America” program, Jamie Spears ’attorney commented on discussions about her client’s custody of his daughter Britney. This was recently discussed in a New York Times documentary titled “Framing Britney Spears.”

According to attorney Thoreen, Britney Spears’ financial assets – after only one of the biggest pop stars of her time – were only $ 2.8 million in 2008. Under the auspices of her father, it increased to 60 million by 2019.
