Not a bad gig: Jamie Spears is pulling down $130,000 a year—all for babysitting his own wayward daughter, reports People. Since Spears quietly quit his catering job in February and made rehabbing Britney's image his full-time career, he's pulled down $2,500 a week from his eldest daughter's estate. 

Since his responsibilities as co-conservator require his "full-time attention," papa Spears 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," the request for "replacement compensation" says.
