Don't mess with Papa Spears.

Britney Spears' dad Jamie purchased the video of the singer's now-ex, David Lucado, kissing another woman, his rep tells TMZ.

Jamie, who has been Britney's conservator since 2008, reportedly paid a hefty sum of money to secure the video so his daughter wouldn't have to see it. His rep explained that Jamie did so in order to protect the pop icon from her ex and to save her the embarrassment of the video being released to the public. TMZ reports that the video is now under "lock and key," and if there are any other copies of the video out there, Jamie plans to sue for copyright infringement.

According to the site, Jamie called his daughter and told her there was "something he needed to show her." Upon seeing the evidence, Britney called it quits with David Lucado.

For her part, Britney announced that she was single yesterday (Aug. 29) via Twitter, and later took to Instagram to reveal what makes her feel better after having a "sh---y" day. See her Instagram video below.
