Britney's dad helped her come back, says Mel Gibson

entertainment Updated: Feb 24, 2009 18:35 IST

Pop star Britney Spears owes her triumphant career comeback to her father Jamie, according to actor and family friend Mel Gibson.

Jamie Spears took over his pop star daughter's legal, financial and personal affairs last February following a public breakdown which saw the star hospitalised for a mental evaluation.

The Braveheart star maintains that if it weren't for the elder Spears' intervention, the singer wouldn't have been able to successfully resurrect her singing career, reports contactmusic.com.

"She's a nice kid, you know. She was just going through a rough patch. She pulled herself out, and her dad... he's the real hero," Gibson said.
