The couple, thankful for their daughter's steady recovery, want to prevent her from dating the likes of her paparazzo ex, Adnan Ghalib, who allegedly is trying to sell their sex tape.
Afraid of their daughter's bad choice in men, they feel her getting involved with the wrong man again would hamper her returning stability.
The Spears' hold Ghalib partially responsible for their girl's public meltdowns, claiming that they had almost lost their daughter while she was around the photographer and her 'manager' Sam Lutfi.
"Jamie and Lynne feel she's so close to cracking the big time again that they don't want anything to get in her way," the Daily Telegraph quoted Website Right Celebrity as quoting a friend.
"They're desperate to ensure that it won't happen again. Their worst nightmare is that she gets involved with someone else who's just trying to use her for her money or to further their own career."
