It was reported earlier this year that Britney Spears' father Jamie carried out background checks on her new boyfriend David Lucado, but when asked if those rumours were false, the 'Perfume' star admitted that, actually, they were bang-on.
Brit will be speaking to Entertainment Tonight for a special interview ahead of the release of her new album Britney Jean, and admits in a newly-released preview clip that her father, Jamie Spears, is a bit "crazy" when it comes to his daughter's love life.
"That is true," she blushed. "My dad's a little crazy like that."

The star also said that she can be really competitive when she wants to be, despite coming across as rather shy in her recent promotional appearances.
With a fierce tone in her voice, she confesses: "If you piss me off, im really competitive."
Britney Jean is out on December 3 in the US and December 2 in the UK, and the star will then be hitting Las Vegas for her two-year residency from December 27.

The new album contains collaborations with TI, will.i.am and her sister Jamie Lynn Spears; as well as behind-the-scenes work from William Orbit, Sia, Diplo and Katy Perry.
All bar one of her previous seven albums have hit the No1 slot on the US Billboard charts - so the pressure's on for Britney Jean to follow suit.
