Britney Spears, speaking to Entertainment Tonight Tuesday, confirms what we told you eight months ago — that her current beau, David Lucado, had to submit to a background check before he and the singer became a couple, at the request of her father Jamie.

“That is true,” the “Lucky” singer told the show. “My dad’s a little crazy like that.”

The Grammy-winning songstress tells ET, she’s “in love” with Lucado, who she called “a simple man.

“I like the fact that he’s very stubborn and he’s stuck in his ways,” the “Oops, I Did It Again” singer said. “I adore him. He’s really funny and he’s really passionate.

“I love the fact that anything he’s involved in he’s passionate about and it’s contagious.”

As we previously reported, Jamie Spears made Lucado “undergo a background check and sign a confidentiality agreement” before things between he and Britney got serious,” a Spears source told us.

“Jamie makes sure if things go south between Jamie and Britney, details about her life wouldn’t be made public. David had absolutely no problem with it, and completely understood why it was being done.”
