Britney Spears’ dad, Jamie, is NOT “hunting for her next boyfriend,” despite a made-up tabloid report. Gossip Cop can exclusively correct this rumor. We’re told it’s “not true.”

According to Life & Style, the singer’s father is searching for a potential suitor who he deems worthy of his daughter. A so-called “source” tells the tabloid, “Britney doesn’t like anybody that Jamie has approved of for her.” The magazine’s supposed insider adds, “Britney wants a bad boy, not the guys her dad likes.”

The tabloid further alleges Jamie doesn’t want the pop star dating anyone in show business, and has been considering some of the single dads at her sons’ school. The magazine also claims any potential boyfriend will have to jump through some hoops before he can win over Spears, including undergoing “extensive background checks.”

Life & Style quotes its seemingly phony source as saying, “Britney needs a boyfriend because she doesn’t have any close girlfriends. She’s tired of being single. She’s upset that finding Mr. Right is taking so long.”

While it’s true Spears would like to find happiness, and her father doesn’t want her to date a sketchy dude, a source close to the singer exclusively assures Gossip Cop the tabloid’s story about Jamie “hunting for her next boyfriend” is simply “not true.” Nor is her dad meddling in her love life. Sadly, the publication has a checkered past when it comes to accurately reporting about Spears. Last year, Gossip Cop busted the magazine when it falsely claimed Spears was “secretly planning a wedding” with then-boyfriend Charlie Ebersol. Just weeks after our insider confirmed the outlet’s wedding tale was untrue, the couple split up.
