Her loneliness ain't killing her no more! Britney Spears officially has a new love interest — and it's all thanks to her father, Jamie Spears.
Earlier this year, reality TV producer Charlie Ebersol reportedly pitched an idea to Britney's father about a show surrounding the pop star. With Britney newly single after a messy split from David Lucado, Jamie had been keeping his eyes open for her, a new report claims.
"After a few meetings together, Jamie knew he'd found a good guy," a source told The Daily Mail. "They were raised the same, in the Industry. Big emphasis on family and giving back to charities, that sort of stuff. That's what Jamie loves about him."
Getting these two together wasn't as easy as it sounds. Britney's a tough cookie — and known for her rebellious behavior.
"He had to make it seem like it was her idea to date Charlie, and not the other way around or it wouldn't work," continued the source.
It looks like Papa Spears did a great job! The singer was grinning ear-to-ear in the photo she recently shared on Instagram with her new beau:
