The incriminating video showing Britney Spears' now ex-boyfriend cheating on her is now owned by none other than Britney's dad ... TMZ has learned.
TMZ broke the story ... a video has surfaced of David Lucado dancing with and kissing a woman a couple of weeks ago. A rep for Jamie Spears tells TMZ ... when Jamie got wind of the video he contacted the agency that was selling it and swifty coughed up a SUBSTANTIAL amount of money to secure it.
We're told Jamie -- who has been Britney's conservator for over 6 years -- then called Britney and told her he had something to show her ... and it was important. When Brit saw the evidence that was all she needed ... she immediately declared the relationship over.
Jamie's rep tells us he took the action to protect his daughter from David and from the embarrassment of the video going public.
Jamie's rep says the video is under lock and key and will never be seen again.
The wild card -- we don't know if the "other woman" who secretly shot the video made other copies, but Jamie's rep tells TMZ in no uncertain terms ... if anybody posts or publishes the video he will sue them for copyright infringement.

8/29/2014 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Jason London got his ass beaten so badly by bouncers at an Arizona bar that his wife left him -- but they're coming back together to jointly sue the bar.
Jason was unable to perform all sorts of duties around the house after the beating at Martini Ranch in January 2013 ... according to docs obtained by TMZ. Jason and Sofia say they were deprived of companionship and a true marital relationship. Most people spell that ... S-E-X.
They also say Jason couldn't do any household chores. Sofia filed for legal separation earlier this year.
TMZ broke the story ... Jason was beaten to a pulp after allegedly sneezing on a bouncer and punching the guy in the face.
Jason was arrested for disorderly conduct, fighting, and assault ... and allegedly made homophobic slurs before crapping his pants in the back of a cop car. He recently pled guilty for the disorderly conduct.
The ex-couple is suing for unspecified damages, but a new pair of pants run at least $50.

5:34 PM PT -- Brown says his issues with Coach Sarkisian hit a breaking point during a meeting with the coach on Tuesday.
Brown says he walked into Sark's office to talk about where he stood with the team (since he's been injured) and was met with hostility.
"When I walked in the room he said, 'You have the f**king guts to walk in here -- coward."
Brown continues, "The way he was talking to me ... it was like a slave master talking to his slave."
According to Brown, Sarkisian never used the N-word or any other racial slur ... but feels the overall "tone" was racist.
Eventually, Brown says, "He told me to get the f**k out of his office."
We reached out to Sarkisian and USC for comment -- so far, no word back.
1:31 PM PT -- TMZ Sports contacted Brown to find out what the hell happened ... and here's what he told us:
"I called a meeting up with this disrespectful guy!!! He called me a coward, all types of f**k words."
"He stereotype my mom and dad. like he belittle me to another level."
"I just responded Yes Sir and No Sir!"
"Never been treated like that before!! Don't Wish it upon anyone! That's who he is!"
More drama at USC ... where running back Anthony Brown just QUIT THE FOOTBALL TEAM after calling head coach Steve Sarkisian a "racist."
Brown -- a redshirt senior -- just made the announcement on Instagram ... where he said, "Sark treated me like a slave in his Office...Can't play for a racist MAN!!!!! #Fighton."
He also added an image that says, "Couldn't play for a racist man."
It's just the latest drama at the University of Southern California ... where cornerback Josh Shaw was just suspended for lying about heroically rescuing his 7-year-old nephew.
Meantime, several USC players are coming to Sarkisian's defense ... including linebacker Scott Felix who tweeted, "Coach Sark is a great coach and even better person. Accusations like that couldn't be more untrue."
Defensive tackle Antwaun Woods also chimed in ... saying, "Coach Sark is a great person/Coach! Please disregard comments that have been made by someone."

And Some of It Was Fake!
8/28/2014 3:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Sean Kingston is being sued by a NYC jeweler for not paying for several pieces of really, really nice jewelry -- and two pieces of cubic zirconia ... TMZ has learned.
According to the lawsuit, filed in New York, Kingston got more than $200,000 worth of ice from Avi Da Jeweler from 2008-2013 ... but never paid for any of it. In the suit, Avi says Kingston wrote checks seven different times over the years, and they all bounced.
Avi claims the orders throughout the years included watches and chains (two featuring Kingston's initials), a diamond "Jesus piece," a belly button chain (we're guessing not for him) ... and a cubic zirconia necklace and bracelet.
The jeweler also claims Kingston never returned a $12,000 ring he loaned him for a "106 & Park" appearance.
In all, Avi claims he's owed $226,200 and he wants an additional million bucks in punitive damages.
We reached out to Kingston, but so far no word back.

The WWE Hall of Famer fell ill on a flight from Atlanta to Vegas ... and was immediately hospitalized when he landed. We're told he's been in and out of consciousness ever since.
Wrestler Sinn Bodhi -- who has been at Jake's bedside all night -- tells us Roberts went to a doctor 2 weeks ago, and was told he had the flu and needed rest.
Bodhi says Jake's been in pain since ... but didn't think it was a big deal because of the prognosis.

Joseline Was NOT High On Crack
At Reunion Brawl
8/28/2014 2:25 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Joseline Hernandez was NOT on drugs during that ugly brawl on the set of "Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta"... so says her husband Stevie J -- who tells TMZ they're gonna sue the liars who said she was high.
Stevie claims his co-star, Althea Eaton, made up the story about Joseline smoking crack cocaine before attacking her last month at the reunion show. Althea is suing Joseline for assaulting her.
Stevie tells TMZ ... the suit is BS because Althea and her husband, Benzino started the fight by talking crap in the first place. He claims Althea's lawsuit is a smokescreen ... to hide the fact Benzino slugged Joseline during the tussle.
Stevie says he and Joseline have lawyered up ... and plan to countersue because "no grown man should hit a woman."
We called Benzino who told us, "It's clear that him and his whore jumped off the couch and attacked us and whatever happened from there was merely self-defense."
