Spears began performing her Las Vegas show “Britney: Piece of Me” at Planet Hollywood in 2013. In 2015, she re-signed with the show for two more years and $35 million. She also released her 20th fragrance through Elizabeth Arden and a game with Glu Mobile.
All told, Spears’ musical and acting career combined with her long-reaching merchandise add up to a lucrative $200 million net worth.
