LATEST: Britney Spears father JAMIE has quit his job as a caterer to dedicate himself full-time to overseeing his daughter's business affairs.
Jamie Spears was appointed conservator of the star's legal and financial affairs in February (08) and is in charge of her estate - with court-appointed observer Andrew Wallet - until 31 July (08).
And now, according to court papers, the pop star's father has taken on a full-time position as conservator - being awarded a $2,500 (GBP1,250) weekly salary for the role.
Spears was also awarded a $10,000 (GBP5,000) lump-sum to cover the first month of his co-conservatorship over his daughter's estate, according to U.S. publication People.com.
The court documents also give the reason why he needs to quit his job as a caterer, with the papers stating the responsibilities of conservator "have required (his) full-time attention".
There will be a further court hearing on 29 May (08) to discuss monetary matters in greater detail.
And it seems Spears' role over-looking the singer's affairs is paying off - since he was appointed conservator in February (08), the 26-year-old has secured expanded visitation rights with her two sons; Sean Preston and Jayden James.
