As the lawsuit against Britney Spears and her family begins to take shape in the courtroom this week, more details are surfacing as to what exactly was going on in the pop star’s life around the time of her infamous public meltdown.

Today, it is being reported that between the years of 2007-2008 the Brit was straight up broke...

According to, Britney’s estimated net worth was $32 million dollars at the time, and the “Oops…I Did it Again” singer spent about $700,000 of that amount ever month. 

“She probably paid around $2 million dollars in attorneys' fees to her family law attorneys in just a year and a half, and remember, she ended up losing custody of the boys to Kevin,” a source told the gossip site. 

“Britney also leased several very high priced rental mansions in Malibu, including one house that she only spent three nights in!” the source added. “Britney also went on insane shopping sprees and bought a number of luxury vehicles.”

And on top of the massive spending spree and lifestyle that Brit had grown accustomed to at the time, it wasn’t supplemented with her “The X Factor” salary and diamond-studded $100 million net worth safety pillow that she has today. 

“Britney wasn't working during that time and didn't have a source of new income coming in,” the source said. “At the rate she was spending money when Sam was in her life.”

As we previously reported, Lutfi is suing the Spears family for or battery, infliction of emotional distress, breach of contract and defamation.

While Britney finishes selecting her final teammates for “X Factor” on TV this week, a final jury is being selected for the trial.
