Britney Spears Caught Taking Drugs By Ex-Bodyguard

Tue Sep 25, 2007 6:42 pm

An article on SFGate's Daily Dish, in an interview with one of Spear's ex-bodyguards (who was fired for not picking up Britney's hat), states that said bodyguard witnessed Spears taking drugs on two occasions:

Quote:
Britney Spears' former bodyguard observed the troubled pop star taking drugs in a restaurant toilet.

Tony Barretto, who was fired in May after failing to pick up a hat for the superstar, claims he caught Spears taking drugs on two separate occasions.

It would seem she's on her way to, if not off, the deep end. It's a shame, really. I feel so sorry for her kids.

I can't understand why they haven't been taken away.

Perez talks about it and the fact that she supposedly doesn't have a CA license but continues to be allowed to drive

That should be: she continues to drive illegally. (Besides since when not having a drivers license stopped anyone from driving?)

Feel sorry for her? She acts like a teenager. She has two kids, and needs to start acting like an adult.

Yeah, I do feel sorry for her. Yes, she screwed up big time, and her career has pretty much been ruined, but all the media and paparazzi are doing now is kicking her while she's down.

She also needs to be left alone so that she can ger her life back together. My world would not change one bit if I didn't know what was happening to Britney 24/7.

Maybe she needs to be left alone, maybe she should get professional help to get away from taking drugs and to reorganize her life. Maybe she should be only a good mother, but no popstar.
Maybe...

But at the other hand, she is old enough to see what her problems are, and to deal with them.
I don't know if I should feel sorry for her..

its hard to feel sorry for her when she continues to hold complete disregard for absolutely everyone possible in nearly every possible situation...she acts like some kind of crazy leaf blowing in the wind that never has any idea what the hell is going on and couldn't care less about anything. its quite odd actually.

I have problems with those who worked closely to celebrities like this ex-bodyguard after they leave working for them to blab all over the media of what they saw them do. Now if they become subpoenaed to testify in court, they should have to tell the truth as per the law, but like in this case where it is in family court, not a court open to the public, then they should keep quiet.
Clearly Britney has some serious problems in her life and unlike the rest of us, she is the hot target of the disgusting paparazzi. Perhaps they should report her to the cops if she does something illegal especially like an obvious DWI, getting the alleged illegal drugs or endangering her children. We have seen where the paparazzi were a factor in getting Princess Diana killed and soon some other celeb or someone else around them at the time will be killed or crippled in their chase for the big bucks pictures. Maybe we could sentence some of those paparazzi to taking pictures with our troops on dangerous patrol in Iraq. Better would be the media to take a moral and ethical stand and cut off funding their work before they become a deep pocket for a lawsuit by a 3rd party who gets killed in an confrontation by an paparazzi.

Poor thing, she is just a dumb average girl who got dealt a bad life by Disney and the American fame industry.

Everybody told her she should be happy for all her fame and money. But her life got ruined, because she wasn't smart enough (and never was going to be) to know how to handle it.

Madonna is totally different. She has a 140 IQ or something like that, and kicked people's asses to get what she wanted. Madonna can handle the complex life of being a superstar.

Britney is no Madonna. She's just an average girl who is overwhelmed and at her wit's end. Ain't her fault. She never had a chance. Was cute when she was younger, so instead of growing up / going to school, she worked on amusing dance routines and being cute / underage. Was that really for her benefit, or ours? We made her do that... she was just a kid. 15, 16.

We made her do nothing. It's a free country.

Besides - wouldn't that be like blaming Budweiser for the guy who gets in his car drunk and kills someone?

She's an adult. With two children to set an example for. She's doing a piss poor job at it.

And if she'd hit your car - chances are you'd see things a little differently.

Hogwash.
"We" didn't take her out of school so she could visit NYC/QLA for several dozen auditions before getting her foot in the door.
"We" didn't mandate that she go on cross-country tours and promotions.
"We" didn't demand that she marry 1) a drunken childhood friend and 2) someone who'd just impregnated another woman
"We" didn't hold a gun to her head such that she have two kids, while she could barely handle her own life, or die.

All "we" did is exactly what she set out for us to do-- buy her merchandise, and keep her antics in the headlines.

Quoting Flighty (Reply 19):

Indeed. And the sad thing is, she had Madonna as a personal friend-- until she did something to obviously piss her off.

Oh man, that wasn't Britney on strategy duty, it was Disney + music label + her managers.

Disney sells this positive vision of girl-fame to us... Hillary Duff is another example. Corporate image creation. Then they are expected to shake their little thing and the young girls / their brothers / their dads all enjoy it. That's the magic Disney learned, amuse the kids but keep the parents entertained as well.

Britney's just a "pawn" to use a cliche. She never had an idea in her brain. She just got used. She made some money, but her record company / managers made way more. And they'll keep doing this, because it works...

As for Britney, she is a sweet girl and she should get the help she needs. Her handlers buying her coke and taking her $$ are the real problem but she's prob too dumb to realize it.

You underestimate the person.
Out of curiosity, how exactly do you think the likes of "Disney + music label + her managers" discovered Britney? By pure dumb luck; or her/her mother's relentlessly pursuing, in attempts spanning several dozen "no"s before a "yes", of them?

Why, in your warped (il)logic, do you believe she/they did that? Because they had nothing better to do? Or because of their intent to.....................wait on it.....................gain money and fame?

Quoting Flighty (Reply 22):
She never had an idea in her brain.



Quoting Flighty (Reply 22):
she is a sweet girl

Curious, why do you make these two claims as if you know her or her situation personally?

Quoting Flighty (Reply 22):
She just got used.

She had several chances to take what she hand, and go. Her family even made a public plea for her to do so several years ago, just give up the Glitterati routine and return to Kentwood. Each time, she signed/resigned. Was she "forced" to do so?

None at all dude, I am just assuming her bodyguard is telling the truth.... britney has been into drugs... and she has people get drugs for her. I don't think she buys on the open market, but you never know.

Yes, she is stage managed. I see her as a clueless person and nothing she's ever done, or ever said, would make me change that opinion.

The trouble with the media world is you never know what is hype and what's real.

I'm sure if that was England and a pop star was witnessed taking drugs there would be a knock on the door from social services next morning.

It's likely she's the most sane lady in USA and all this hype keeps her in the news till she revives her career.

We all love a celebrity that's down, and sympathize with them when they rise from their own ashes.
and with that..cabin crew, seats for landing please.

What's with all this "Britney's a victim" nonsense? Save your sympathy for people who need it.

Getting dealt a bad life is ending up with two kids living in a rundown trailer because BillyBob is back in the county jail-again.

Do you think that sitting on her bank account and living in upscale LA and driving around in a Benz is a bad life?

Pathetic.

You can take the tramp out of the trailer park but you can't take the trailer park out of the woman. No good can come of a person whose parents spelled their name wrong.
