The heartbroken minder who was fired by Britney Spears has lashed out at the pop star's 'people', insisting he always did his best for her.

ROBERT 'BIG ROB' FEGGANS was let go earlier this month (18JUN03) amid claims that he couldn't curb 21-year-old Britney's wild partying.

The petite star has often been pictured with bulky Rob, who has been at her side since she first hit fame. And though her spokespeople insisted the split came about because Britney changed security firms, distraught Rob feels betrayed by her actions.

He says, "Her people questioned my ability to care of Britney. I worked 24 hours a day, seven days a week. I gave her 100 per cent.

"When a client goes out, you can't do anything about it unless there's a hostage or a security risk.

"You can't stop her or Janet Jackson, Madonna or Jennifer Lopez. You cannot control someone over 21 years old."
