Britney's Dad -- On the Payroll Full-Time

Jamie Spears has made a career move.

New court documents show that Britney Spears' dad has quit his job as a caterer and is now working full-time as his daughter's, um, guardian or business manager or dad. The gig pays well -- he's getting $2,500 a week and was just awarded $10,000 in back pay to cover the month of February, when his co-conservatorship of his daughter's estate began. 

"The responsibilities he has assumed as conservator ... have required [his] full-time attention," says the papers that requested "replacement compensation." "As a result, he has been unable to continue to his prior employment and he has lost his source of income which he needs to pay his living expenses."

There's no doubt that Brit has been doing much better since having her dad on board, but shouldn't he be doing this for free? I don't know -- I've never been in the situations Brit has found herself in -- but I'm pretty sure my dad would have taken care of me free of charge. Isn't that his job as a dad? 

Whatever, I don't know the legality behind it all, and I guess the courts felt that he deserved compensation but, if Jamie gets tired of this job, I'll be happy to take over.
