It's not like Britney has daddy issues or anything
Jamie Spears, father to wild child Britney, told the New York Post’s Page Six that his daughter’s manager Larry Rudolph did a great job, and didn’t deserve being fired on April 13 (or the pop tart’s subsequent, scathing remarks).
“When Larry Rudolph talked Britney into going into rehab, he was doing what her mother, father and team of professionals with over 100 years of experience knew needed to be done. She was out of control. Larry was the one chosen by the team to roll up his sleeves and deliver the message, to help save her life,” Jamie told the Post via e-mail.
“The Spears family would like to publicly apologize to Larry for our daughter’s statements about him over the past few weeks. Unfortunately, she blames him and her family for where she is at today with her kids and career. Larry has always been there for Britney. For this, we will forever be grateful to him.”
Britney’s response to the paper was less than cordial: “I am praying for my father. We have never had a good relationship. It’s sad that all the men that have been in my life do not know how to accept a real woman’s love. I am concentrating on my work and my life right now.”
Hopefully that means concentrating on staying out of the clubs, Paris Hilton’s car, rehab and those pesky gossip columns.
Meanwhile, a friend of Brit’s tells the Post the singer “had no drugs in her system when she was admitted to Promises — they [tested her] and there was nothing. She was embarrassed she had to go in there when she knew she was suffering from postpartum depression, not a drug or alcohol problem.”
She also blamed the head-shaving on an act of solidarity for an aunt who had just died of cancer, and not on possible drug testing. Somehow, that one is a bit far-fetched.
