If you're wondering if Britney Spears' new relationship with Charlie Ebersol has anything to do with her father, Jamie, you could be right!
Sure, it's not surprising to see the popstar with a new beau immediately after dumping David Lucado. In fact, that's like a normal occurrence in the world of Hollywood.

However, it IS suspicious that Brit Brit snagged someone so perfect — and so soon! Girlfriend is super busy with her Vegas shows and has two sons to take care of…
Who has time to jump back into the pond and find another fish to date?! Not her!
So according to a long-time business friend of Britney's father, the Perfume singer's new man was hand selected by her pops!
The insider said:
"Charlie had to pass the dad test for sure. And Charlie had to pass legal muster, too, with that mob of lawyers that run her world."
By running her world, the insider means the conservators who are in charge of Britney's finances and personal life.
The source continued to name the reason why the 32-year-old singer needed a man ASAP!
"Britney functions best with a man in her life, and Jamie knows that. He's is good at selecting just the right candidates. They last a while. That's all anyone can ask, really. Britney has a complicated life. Jamie had to do this stuff slowly and cautiously, so Britney wouldn't rebel. He had to make it seem like it was her idea to date Charlie, and not the other way around or it wouldn't work."
It does seem a little coincidental for Britney to be so smitten with another man just two months after she dumped David.

They were seeing each other for more than 18 months!
But regardless of the conspiracy theories, Britney seems really thrilled with her new man!
So, if she's happy, we're happy — no matter how they met!
