Britney Spears‘ father and conservator, Jamie Spears, fired three dancers from the “Circus” tour for suspected drug use, according to British tabloid reports. While Britney relaxed by the pool in Miami, her father was making all her backup dancers undergo the contractual drug test. He warned all the dancers when they started that this would be a dry tour and to keep Britney away from temptation.
Per Showbizspy via Daily Mirror:
“Because of Britney’s past personal problems she now requires more insurance for her Circus tour than before.” says a source to the Daily Mirror. “It’s a very rigorous process protecting all of those assets. Backstage her dad is beyond strict and rightfully so. He only wants the best for Britney. He’s protecting Britney’s comeback with every ounce of his being.”
Papa Spears is making the 50-plus dancers out on the road with her take drug tests in an effort to keep his daughter on the right path. The three that failed were promptly fired and told to leave immediately, just one week into the 44-date run. Jamie, who a judge has made legally responsible for keeping his daughter on the straight and narrow path, is not tolerating this behavior and not granting any second chances either.

Per OK! Magazine via Daily Star:
“They begged to be given a second chance but were shown the door,” a source told Britain’s Daily Star newspaper. “Britney and the dancers spent months rehearsing before the tour started and they had become more like family, but the show must go on and such behavior won’t be tolerated. The remaining dancers have been read the riot act. They have been told that if they know of drugs being used they must come clean or face the boot themselves.”
Britney herself had evidently instructed all her crew and staff that no kind of hard living would be endured on the tour. Her video for her new single “If You Seek Amy” will drop the 12th exclusively for 24 hours on Virgin Mobiles website.
Good for you Papa Spears! Britney has come too far to let anything get in the way of her comeback. We’re rooting for you girl!
