Britney Spears’ Dad Speaks: “We’ve Grown A Lot”

For the first time since being named Britney Spears’ conservator, her dad Jamie Spears speaks about his struggle to help his daughter re-gain control of her life,

“We’ve grown a lot,” Jamie said. “I’ve been able to come back into my daughter’s life, and that was an adjustment anyway, because I’m an alcoholic and it’s the first time we’ve really been able to share.”

Jamie initially moved into Britney’s Studio City home at the beginning of the conservatorship. He is not longer living in her house,

“I don’t stay here anymore,” he said. “Every now and then, I’ll stay if we have something early in the morning we have to do.”

As we previously reported, Kevin Federline was recently granted full custody of their 2 boys. Jamie says both Britney and Kevin wanted to avoid going to trial over their custody dispute, and added that in the end it came down to negotiating how much time Britney wanted with their sons, Sean Preston and Jayden James,

“It made no sense for that trial to proceed so we worked out an agreement,” he said. “The agreement says that on Oct. 1 we’ll probably get another overnight, and that will stay in place until the end of the year or the end of the conservatorship.”

And how does he feel about Kevin? Jamie said his heart is in the right place,

“Kevin has a wonderful heart. I don’t agree with giving him more money…. He wants them to raise these kids together. Kevin’s heart is right.”

Currently, Britney has Sean & Jayden on Monday, Wednesday and an overnight on Friday. As Britney’s conservator, Jamie must accompany every visit. The conservatorship is in place through the end of this year, but Jamie said he’s hoping Britney will reach a place where she no longer needs it,

“I would hope that it stands until the end of the year, and then we’ll sit back and evaluate where we are at the time, where Britney is at that time.”

Jamie admits the conservatorship was a major adjustment for Britney, however it has given them a chance to grow together as father and daughter,

“It’s wonderful. It’s new for both of us. She sometimes calls me 50 times a day and asks me things that light my life up. But, like all daughters, she is very manipulative and cunning. So she gets what she wants a lot.”

Jamie said he is just a dad, trying to protect his daughter,

“I do understand that my baby made this monster. But when she was down, people took advantage.”
