Britney Spears was looking for the best way to thank her father, Jamie Spears, for all his help turning her life around, and she found it — she’s buying him a restaurant.

“Britney just wanted to give him something useful as a sign of her appreciation,” a source said, according to Hollyscoop. “After all their ups and downs she knows he’s always got her best interests at heart.”

Before stepping in to oversee Spears’ personal and professional lives, Jamie owned a catering company in Louisiana. The new restaurant will reportedly specialize in soul food.
