Dating Britney Spears isn’t easy. No, we’re not just talking about all the media scrutiny, or the hordes of paparazzi that follow your every move.

It turns out that the pop star’s new boyfriend, an average joe named David Lucato, had to jump through quite a lot of hoops before he was allowed to date Brit!

 

Radar Online reports that David was required to both undergo a background check and sign a confidentiality agreement. Britney’s father, Jamie Spears, is the one who insisted on both. He’s got every right to do it, too. Britney is still under a conservatorship following her 2007 breakdown, so her father/conservator Jamie gets a huge say in her daily affairs..

 

“Before David started spending time with Brit, he had to undergo a background check, and sign a confidentiality agreement, all arranged by Papa Spears,” Radar’s source reports. “Jamie makes sure if things go south between Jamie and Britney, details about her life wouldn’t be made public.

 

So how does Brit’s new man feel about all the legal hoops? “David had absolutely no problem with it, and completely understood why it was being done,” the source says.

 

Do you think it’s the right call for Brit’s dad to take all these precautions, or does the whole thing sound like overkill to you? Britney is one of the world’s best known pop stars. Perhaps all these extra measures to protect her personal life really are necessary.
