Britney Spears' Dad Appears For The First Time ​After Her Bombshell Book Release WITHOUT HIS GODDAMN LEG

Source - Jamie Spears has resurfaced without his right leg, 7 weeks after it was amputated.

Britney's dad was at a warehouse in Kentwood, getting out of his car, when the photos were shot. BTW, Britney owns the warehouse, but Jamie has what amounts to a lifetime lease where he has the right to use it to store his RV and other property.

Sources with direct knowledge tell TMZ ... Jamie's leg was amputated 4 inches above his knee.

TMZ broke the story, Jamie underwent the surgery after an infection spread to a point where doctors could not save the limb.

Our sources say Jamie has been fitted with a prosthetic leg, but until he's able to use it he'll get around with the help of a wheelchair and a walker.

If there is one thing I have learned in my 34 years on this planet, it is that karma truly does exist. And I'm not saying that in some cosmic, astrological, weirdo type of way. I'm saying that because I have seen it over and over again - people who were scumbags behind closed doors get what was coming to them down the line. It's happened to me professionally, it's happened to me personally, and it's happened to people I know. Hell, look at all the people who have tried to fuck over Dave only for it to eventually backfire. So what's the moral of the story? Don't be a piece of shit. Truth prevails. What goes around always comes around. Sorry to get preachy but it's true. Which is why I'm not surprised Jamie is starting to fall apart. If he truly gets what he deserves he'll be a stump by early spring. Although you never know. These things take time. 

Regardless, Jamie had over five surgeries to try and contain an infection on his right leg and none of them took so they chopped off his leg. I do feel bad but at the same time, not really. I just don't want him to use this as a way to sucker Britney back into his life.

Here's what we know about where the two of them currently stand...

As for his relationship with Britney, as we reported, hours after we broke the story about his amputation, Britney posted a photo of her dad on Instagram ... the first photo she's posted of him in ages.

Beyond that, our sources say Britney has not reached out to her dad, at least so far. We are told, however, she has recently talked about missing him.

Britney's relationship with her mom, Lynne, seems to be further along. Lynne has come back to L.A. for the second time this month to spend time with her daughter.

Stay strong, sisterfriend. The last thing we need is a repeat of the last 13 years. And because I don't want bad karma myself...get well soon, Jamie! That's it for this one. Thanks for reading.
