The 26-year old pop diva, child prodigy and star of hits “Oops, I Did It Again,” and “Hit Me BayBuzz One More Time” was talked into coming home last week by her father, Norm Speers. Sources say the long-serving Hastings district councillor was instrumental in convincing his daughter to sell her Californian mansion, sever all ties with her debaucherous LA lifestyle and return to the family home in Raureka.
Councillor Speers said communication with his much maligned daughter hadn’t been good since Britney dropped out of Hastings Girls’ High School 10 years ago.
“It’s a matter of her getting back to basics,” says Norm. “I’m a nuts and bolts councillor; and a nuts and bolts parent.”
Norm has asked for privacy in the upcoming weeks while he attempts to rebuild bridges with his daughter and grandchildren.
