Britney's Dad Speaks Out, Brit Lashes Out Right Back

Britney's Dad Speaks Out, Brit Lashes Out Right Back

The drama never ends with Britney Spears, but this time it's her own family who is stirring the pot. It seems that Britney's father, Jamie Spears (who claims to be speaking for the whole family), is rather disappointed and embarrassed by his daughter's recent actions, especially that of firing her manager Larry Rudolph. Jamie went so far as to release the following statement to Page Six:

"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.

"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 newly rehired publicist Leslie Sloane Zelnick responded with this from Brit, "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." Oh, bringing K-Fed and Justin into this, too. Plus, the Page Six item claims a friend of Britney's says that she had no drugs in her system when she entered Promises and shaved her head out of solidarity for her aunt who recently died of cancer. So, basically the public meltdown was entirely blown out of proportion. Sure.

While Britney already made it clear in her bizarre video rant last weekend that she isn't happy with her management for sending her to rehab, I imagine this isn't the last we'll hear of this very public argument. She never has been one to mince words.

i think that its good that her dad helped her out in this case,i think if she keeps this up it will take longer for her to make a come back...like her manger...and shavin her head,i think she's goin to alot right now but some of the thing she dose dont count as an exucse...i think she should try to clean up her act cuz her dad can't always make a exuse for her beavior...also i dont think she want to lose any of her fans out there...she looks happy and i think that she should keep that up.

Princess Dork, she insulted Larry in a public forum. Her dad is defending Larry in the same forum that she first threw the mud in. Her insults could really hurt his professional life, and I think it is kind of her dad to stick up for someone who has helped her for nearly a decade now.

Is it really the right thing to do, for a father to made a comment to public about his daughter like this? and she just got out of rehab. Can't he do it in private?

I think PrettyGurl summed it up. The clock is ticking to Britney's next breakdown. The only question I have is, who will she blame for it?

Her father is watching his daughter go through the same thing he went through. He was in Rehab a few years ago. How difficult must it be for him to see her in such DENIAL?? I think he made that statement to make it clear to HER that the FAMILY wanted her to go to rehab - NOT just LARRY and it was the best thing for her and she needs to STOP blaming people for her OWN mistakes. She is in such DENIAL. From what I've heard - she isn't talking to them. He had no choice but to issue a statement. He probably doesn't know any better than to send it to Page 6. He doesn't have a publicist and he always hated the Hollywood life. He kept working after Britney made it big. Her mother was never a momager or anything. At least they TRY to help their child. UNLIKE Lindsays mom who partys and snorts coke with her for Christs sake. Britney is like a child. She wanted to play house and now she is done. She had sooo much fun without those kids that she just wants to visit them now and then and she thinks thats enough. That makes her a mom. She never took care of them. Not since Sean. She never bonded with Jayden. She's done. Like she was with the dogs. It's disgusting. She wants to play Rock Star again. If those were my kids - I would be with them EVERY MINUTE I had them during the week til they went back to Kevin. I mean, we don't even get photo ops. But we hear how Kevin LEAVES VEGAS to spend Easter with them. And then we hear that Brit calls Kevin to give the kids back early so she can go to a Laker game. I mean WTF?? Those poor kids. She wanted to play house with the husband and the kids. Then she got bored. This bitch goes tanning, shopping and eating while they sit at home with the nannies on her days!! She's done with them. Seriously. She is going to have a serious breakdown when this album comes out and bombs. I think she is bi-polar. It explains her crazy manic mood swings. She is just NUTS. Period. She HAS to leave the house EVERY DAY!! She is ADDICTED to the paparrazi. ADDICTED to that attention. SHE CAN'T stay home. Look at her! She just goes to do nothing all day. Tan, shop, eat. She isn't even working on the record. Sometimes she dances. Same thing every day. Just so they can chase her with the cameras. She is addicted to it. She NEEDS IT. She NEEDS THAT ATTENTION, That VALIDATION. She confuses it for STARDOM when it's really just TABLOID fodder. She doesn't realize she is a JOKE. Not a superstar. She will - when that album comes out and she doesn't sell out those arenas anymore. She will then.

Jamie Lynn isn't as famous as Britney, and she's about 16, right? She's still got some years to go down a Britney path. Hopefully she learns from her sister's mistakes though. I thunk Brit has a long way to go. If she can't see that she needed to go to rehab & get help, there is no way she has conquered her problems.

Wow! She can bend her thumb really far back! I've just tried doing the 'thumbs up' and I can't bend it back that far. (Yes, this is what I got from this story. Blame the late night designing.)

Sounds to me like Britney Spears uses everyone else and then turns on them. Not a great trait. Ohhhh but everyone is like "but she looks great, she's getting back in shape"! Who cares, she's probably taking some crazy diet supplements and acting looney burns calories too. We should not give a crap that she's back in shape, we should just not give her the attention that she "hates" and see how she feels then. She makes me sick.

I honestly can say that I don't like her anymore. She's against everyone all of the time. Her vids were very immature and her antics are tiresome. GROW UP Britney Spears. She's definitely not right in the mind. She kind of scares me, to tell ya the truth---how she talks in that baby voice. Yikes. She's officially done for me. I used to be a big fan too. Oh well.

I feel sorry for her kids. She's a stupid, selfish, snotty little brat who has a whole lot of growing up to do. And it's her boys who will suffer the most serious consequences.

Jamie Lynn is no way like Britney. Yes they may look alike but they are two totally different people with different careers. Jamie is nearly never followed by paparazzi, hardly interviewed and never has any scandals. Good for her. She has a brain unlike her older sister.

Seeing/hearing her is like watching a clip of the Hindenburg crash and burn...only with bad fashion, bad hair, and a lot more blah, blah, blah. And yes, Britney is well beyond the point where she is solely responsible for her own foolish decisions. Or is imbecility a decision? But the thing that really gives me pause about her family is that they are allowing - no, aiding and encouraging - Jamie Lynn to go down the same road! If JL were my kid, she'd be goat farming in Timbuktu right now with no tv or radio...and definitely no tabloids! :-D

Since my previous comment was flagged I will write something nicer. Britney really needs to get herself together for the sake of her kids. Forget about the fans and music business because I doubt that she has fans anymore. Get it together for your babies.

Britney is so stupid. She literally had the world in her own hands and she chose to through it all away because she thought she could handle being a wife and a mother. Everyday something happens with her and I am sick of hearing it. I really hopes that she just shuts up but shes a retard and will not learn from her own mistakes. Poor Sean and Jayden don't even see her anymore and that's who I feel bad for in the whole equation. Poor babies. Hopefully Kevin and his family is taking good care of them.

I used to be a big fan of Brit's. This seals it, I'm done. I'm never buying her music or reading another bit of gossip about her, ever again. She's so immature and screwed up. I had postpartum depression and I went and got help. The fact that she's blaming others for her problems shows a complete lack of maturity. She's just a walking disaster.
