Family approves of Britney Spears's new boyfriend

BRITNEY Spears's family approves of her new boyfriend.  

The 'Piece of Me' hitmaker is currently dating Charlie Ebersol and her family have reportedly given her new relationship with the writer and producer their blessing.  

A source revealed: "He does well financially and is very private.  

"They don't have to worry about whether he is using Britney."   

The 32-year-old singer - who has two sons, Sean, nine and Jayden, eight with her ex-husband, Kevin Federline - has also reportedly introduced her new beau to her children.  

Another source added to People magazine: "She has been in the best mood [since meeting him and] finds him cute and funny."   

Meanwhile, it was recently revealed that Charlie was directed to sign a confidentiality agreement by Britney's father, Jamie.

A source explained that the 31-year-old - whose father is 'Saturday Night Live' co-creator Dick Ebersol and mother is actress Susan St. James - agreed to sign the document because his girlfriend is still legally under her father's guardianship due to a conservatorship, which followed her public breakdown in 2007.   

The insider also revealed that despite their romance not being "serious yet", Charlie has done things in line with the agreement and hasn't spoke much about Britney to his friends because of the "severe" penalties for violating it.
