Britney Spears’ Circus tour has given her a monetary lifeline after a spree that has seen her shell out Â£6.6 million in less than a year.
The astonishing state of her finances was revealed in a report to a Los Angeles court.
The singer, who arrives in Britain on Wednesday for the first nine dates of the European leg of her Circus world tour, lost control of her own affairs 15 months ago under a court order.
Dad James was put in charge after her meltdown period during which she twice ended up in psychiatric hospitals and blew Â£37 million.
Now, the singer’s latest financial report shows that the tour is Britney’s monetary lifeline that could keep her head above water.
“The figures make it clear that the Circus tour is very much a monetary lifeline for her. Without it, she wouldn’t exactly be going bankrupt but her lifestyle would need radical readjustment and she’d have to learn how to save cash,” the Daily Express quoted financial consultant Katherine Raia as saying.
