Britney Spears started dating David Lucado just a month after ending things with fiancé Jason Trawick. The singer has faced criticism for moving on too quickly, but now a new report suggest that the pop star’s father might have been the driving force behind her new romance.

Radar Online reports that Brit’s father, Jamie Spears, is actually the one who set up the two lovebirds in the first place. “Britney needed someone to keep her company after she and Jason broke up,” an unnamed source tells the site.

Jamie has been Britney’s conservator for the past five years, and that’s made him an important part of her life in the years since her very public 2007 breakdown. Jamie decided that David — a Southern-born everyman who currently works conducting research at an L.A. law firm — would be a great companion for Brit after her split.

“Jamie has known David (Lucado) for awhile, and always thought he was a thoughtful, and an all-around good guy,” Radar’s source says.

Britney and David’s relationship soon blossomed to romance, and the source says Brit’s new man only has her best interests at heart.

“He is very, very patient with her as Britney can be prone to drastic mood swings. He has become a very calming influence in her life.”
