WHO IS BRYAN SPEARS? WHAT IS HIS RELATIONSHIP WITH HIS SISTER?
Bryan is Britney's older brother. Born in 1977, Bryan has previously worked on various projects in the entertainment industry as a manager, and television and film producer.
Brittany's brother co-produced numerous episodes of the Nickelodeon teenage series, "Zoey 101," in which his younger sister, actress and singer Jamie Lynn, appeared.
Besides helping Jamie Lynn pursue acting in Hollywood, Bryan assisted their father, Jamie, in Britney's conservatorship. Bryan was named a trustee of a trust established in Britney's name.
Bryan had benefited from his sister's conservatorship in 2008. A Los Angeles Superior Court judge reportedly approved almost $1.5 million in payments to people who assisted the pop artist.
Bryan was paid $200,000 for his services prior to the "Toxic" singer's conservatorship, while Jamie was paid $10,000 monthly and received a raise for managing his daughter's hectic schedule. Britney's former lawyer, Sam Ingham, reportedly said:
“My client has made an informed consent to all of these fee amounts."
IS BRYAN SPEARS MARRIED? DOES HE HAVE KIDS?
Unlike his two famous sisters, Bryan tends to stay away from the spotlight, but fans could still learn interesting facts about him. The 45-year-old producer has a family of his own.
Bryan was formerly married to Jamie Lynn's talent manager, Graciella Sanchez. He and Sanchez tied the knot in 2008 and welcomed their daughter, Sophia "Lexie" Alexandra, in 2011.

According to The Sun, the pair split in 2015 and officially divorced in 2017. A judge ordered Bryan to pay his ex-wife substantial child support, reportedly worth $20,000.
In addition to owing Sanchez thousands of dollars in child support, Bryan is also responsible for paying for their daughter's medical, dental, and hospital insurance.
WHY DIDN'T BRYAN SPEARS ATTEND BRITNEY'S WEDDING TO SAM ASGHARI?
Fans may have speculated that Bryan's involvement in Britney's now-terminated conservatorship stopped him from attending his sister's wedding at her LA home. However, none of the theories appeared to be correct.
Bryan's timing was not ideal. He reportedly attended his daughter's graduation on the same day as Britney and Sam's wedding. "Both ceremonies were around the same time," a source reportedly told Page Six.
