Britney Spears' father has demanded compensation from his daughter.
The 'Gimme More' singer has been ordered to pay her father Jamie £5,000 to compensate him for the loss of earnings he suffered when he gave up his job to care for her earlier this year.
Jamie was made conservator of Britney's estate in January after she suffered a public meltdown and lost custody of her children, two-year-old Sean Preston and one-year-old Jayden James.
Court papers state: "As a result of the responsibilities Mr. Spears has assumed as Temporary Conservator of the Person and Temporary Co-Conservator of the Estate, he has been able to continue his prior employment."
With Jamie's help, Britney has managed to turn her life around.
As well as two successful appearances on hit US TV show 'How I Met Your Mother', the singer has also returned to the recording studio.
The judge in her child custody battle is so impressed by her progress he has recently granted her extra visitation rights to her sons, who live with her ex-husband Kevin Federline.
A spokesman for Kevin said: "This wouldn't have happened if Jamie Spears wasn't involved."
