How Britney’s Dad Stole Christmas

Apparently Britney Spears‘ “jail sentence” of a life has spilled over into her holiday plans. According to Star, Brit had an elaborate Christmas card photo shoot planned with her boys Sean Preston and Jayden James. She wanted to rent “real reindeer and even buy fake snow” and shoot her and the boys in their own little winter wonderland. But when her conservator dad Jamie heard about the estimated $20,000 bill for the livestock and trucked-in snow, he axed the idea and suggested the pop star just put her babies in some Christmas sweaters and snap some shots with her digital camera instead.

Britney discusses the rules she is under in her new documentary, For the Record, set to air on MTV November 30th. “If I wasn’t under the restraints I’m under, I’d feel so liberated,” the pop star says. “When I tell them the way I feel, it’s like they hear but they’re not really listening.” [Source: Star; Photo: Getty Images]
