Spears might be slugged £8.5m in taxes

US tax officials are said to be probing the finances of troubled singer
Britney Spears and she could owe £8.5m in tax if she has failed to pay enough
duty on her estimated £27m fortune.

If Britney does owe tax, it may be because the singer’s accountants struggled
to keep track of all the income she receives from her numerous business
ventures, the Daily Star reports.

Although Spears has instructed her lawyer, Adam Streisand, that she did not
want her estranged father in her life, superior court commissioner Reva Goetz
has kept Jamie Spears in charge of her finances and personal affairs until
February 14.

‘She has expressed to me very strongly that her father not be the conservator
(guardian) of her estate,’ Streisand told the LA hearing.
