Britney Spears’ mental health and finances made headlines on Monday when conflicting reports surfaced, one claiming she’s “completely dysfunctional” and “in danger of going broke,”  and another claiming the singer’s not about to be broke.

In a TMZ report, sources close to the 42-year-old singer claimed that she’s burning through all her money with lavish, pricey trips to Hawaii and French Polynesia and is in “danger of going broke” just two-plus years after being released from her 13-plus year conservatorship held by her father Jamie Spears.

She cannot afford this,” one source said. “She had $60 million when the conservatorship ended, and she’s now where the conservatorship started — in danger of going broke.”

The report also claimed that her mental health is in a “seriously dangerous” state, calling the mood swings “shocking.”

“She had lots of freedom in the conservatorship and the restrictions were there to protect her,” one source said. “She’s not protected anymore.”

However, sources who spoke to Page Six blasted the “grossly exaggerated” TMZ report.

“She has no concept of money,” one insider said. “For over a decade, other people were in charge of her bank accounts, and every purchase had to be reported to the court — even if it was just a pack of gum. But now, she’s on her own.”

“She’s not broke,” the source added, “But she definitely could benefit from being more careful with her cash.”

Another source told the outlet that those in the superstar singer’s inner circle are “in a precarious position” because they don’t want to “rock the boat and make her feel like she is in a conservatorship again.”

“It’s tricky,” the source said. “No one wants to be Jamie 2.0. Between flying private and booking five-star villas, it can get costly — fast.”

A third source added, “She is not going broke but should keep an eye on private jets.”

In November 2021, a judge terminated Spears’ nearly 14-year conservatorship, which was controlled by her father Jamie.

Following the conclusion of her conservatorship, Spears married Sam Asghari and after 14 months of marriage the two divorced.  In 2023, the singer released “The Woman In Me” — a memoir — and it was an instant New York Times bestseller. Sources told Page Six that the “Womanizer” hitmaker is “at the point of recoupment” with her $15 million publishing deal and earns “very significant” royalties for the sale of her memoir, which sold more than 2 million copies in the U.S. alone.
