It’s been a long standing rumor, but now more information is coming to light on behalf of a former manager.
Sam Lufti, the former manager for Britney Spears is claiming that the reason that the ‘X-Factor’ judge shaved her head back in 2007 was because of drug use.
Lufti’s defamation trial against Britney’s mother Lynne began on Thursday, and an attorney for the former manager issued an opening statement claiming that Lutfi was not responsible for the famous meltdown that came after Spears split from husband Kevin Federline.
Joseph Schleimer told the court, “She liked to use amphetamines. Most everything that went wrong was because of this drug.”
Schleimer also claimed that Lufti was not responsible for introducing SPears to drugs but rather had been trying to get her to stop using, even hiring a drug-sniffing dog to find substances in her home.
The report on TMZ claims that according to Schleimer and Lufti, Spears was big into drugs, and was paranoid that the judge would test her for narcotics, leading her to shave her head out of fear that her children would be taken away.
Lufti was fired in 2008, and filed suit against her mother Lynne after she made allegations in her memoir that he had secretly drugged Britney and kept her from speaking to her family and friends.
