Pop icon Britney Spears has seen a significant financial boost this year, raking in $40 million from her bestselling memoir, hit duet with Elton John, fragrances, and music royalties. 

However, sources close to the singer reveal to Us Weekly that her spending habits are raising eyebrows.

While Spears enjoys "affordable" online shopping sprees and indulges in extravagant trips to Bora Bora and Hawaii, some insiders worry about her financial well-being. 

These concerns stem from the singer's newfound financial freedom after her 13-year conservatorship ended in 2021.

Sources claim that a plan was put in place to manage Spears' finances post-conservatorship, but it hasn't been followed, leading to rapid spending. 

Others argue that it's her money to spend as she pleases.

Spears' conservatorship, established in 2008 by her father Jamie Spears following a public breakdown, controlled her finances and personal life until its termination in 2021. 

The singer opened up about the traumatic experience in her memoir, describing how it stripped her of her womanhood and individuality.

Despite the recent legal settlement with her father, Spears' financial independence remains a point of contention among her inner circle. 

While some worry about her spending, others defend her right to enjoy her hard-earned money.

Regardless of the differing opinions, Britney Spears continues to celebrate her freedom, indulging in simple pleasures like a glass of wine, which was previously forbidden under her conservatorship.
