The Fox Upfronts presentation in New York City followed protracted negotiations with Spears’ conservators, and what felt like days of rushed negotiations with Lovato who recently told the UK’s Fabulous Magazine that a return to work would probably compromise her recovery: “I need to be secure in my body before I go back in front of the camera. Anyone in recovery from an eating disorder would find that triggering, and I’m not ready.”
Spears signed on for $15 million with the support of her conservators and a judge. Lovato will earn just over $1 million for the season. The re-tooled panel shared Twitter photos from the event.
