We couldn't be more thrilled for Britney Spears!
The pop star received the Michael Jackson Vanguard Award at the Video Music Awards Sunday night, and was overheard backstage attributing much of her success and current happiness - after her public meltdown and subsequent conservatorship in 2007 - to her father, Jamie!
A source explains:
"Britney now recognizes that if her father hadn't stepped in and taken the action that he had, well…. Britney is now crediting Jamie for saving her life. Britney is on top of the world right now. She is getting ready for the next leg of her world tour, which will be on September 22 in Moscow. Her father will be with her for some of the European performances, along with her mom. Britney's relationship with her dad is in a very, very good place now. She was extremely emotional backstage before leaving for the VMAs and kept telling her daddy how much she loves him. Britney always knew she would have a comeback. She just didn't know it was going to be on this level. After Britney's tour concludes, which will be at the end of this year, her doctors and advisers are going to meet and confer about how much longer the conservatorship should go on for. There is a very good chance that a decision could be made to pull the plug in early 2012. It's likely that Britney's business affairs will still remain under control of the conservatorship though, even if they determine that she no longer needs it for herself personally. The idea is that this will be a gradual transition for Britney to return to her life, on her own. Jason (Trawick) is very, very serious about Britney. Jason has made it known that he wants to marry Britney. It's just a matter of timing of the engagement — and if the conservatorship is lifted off Britney personally, well, it makes it a lot easier for Jason to propose. He doesn't want her to feel pressured, it will happen when the time is right."
Everything is seriously coming up BRIT BRIT!
Congratulations on all of your success this year, gurl!
We look forward to watching your career continue to SOAR for many years to come!
