Britney Spears Stabs Pepsi in the Back and Makes Money Off Coca Cola
Britney Spears has finally answered the age old question, “Coke or Pepsi?” and double-crossed her former Pepsi sponsors in the process with her stock portfolio.
You may remember that Miss Spears formerly had a very lucrative $8 million deal with the blue-canned company back in 2001, but we guess brand loyalty is no match for an easy payday and the delicious, refreshing taste of Coke. Aaaah.
Sorry Pepsi, you lose the popularity contest again.
According to documents in Spears conservatorship obtained by TMZ, in 2012 Brit Brit sold 574 shares of Coke, earning her $3,238.55 while she held onto an additional 208 shares for the future.
As for Pepsi who loved her like one of their own, Spears doesn’t own a single stock.
Spears also owns $13 million in Chevron, Microsoft, Phillip Morris, Heinz, Nestle, Amazon, Facebook, Google, Lululemon, and Visa.
Overall last year she made $97,883 through her stock portfolio, earning when she sold AT&T and Deere & Co., but losing out with McDonalds and Chipotle.
Don’t cry for her though, she’ll earn more than three times that much per gig in Vegas, at $310,000 a performance she’ll garner an additional $15 million. They don’t call her Queen Britney for nothing.
