Britney Spears Facing Swarm of Meth Use Allegations
Britney Spears is once again making headlines without shaving her head or bashing an umbrella against the windshield of a car. This time it is her bank account and reputation that are being hauled into the courtroom’s unrelenting spotlight.
Sam Lutfi and his legal team are combining forces to sue Britney Spears for big bucks. Lutfi was once the performer’s manager until being dismissed by Spear’s father. Now Lufti is declaring a legal showdown and he is apparently willing to throw Britney underneath the nearest bus.
New allegations of meth use are being bandied about as Lutfi insists that it was Britney’s lust for crystal meth that helped bring about that “oh so public” meltdown just a few years ago.
Of course the lawyers are purporting that the former teen queen was caught up in a spiral of drug use that including much more than a passing acquaintance with meth. According to the latest reports the singer was also fond of amphetamines and alcohol.
In court, Lutfi’s lawyer, Joe Schleimer, said that Spears’ fondness for uppers contributed to most, if not all, of the incidents that made her 2008′s Queen of Scandal.
“She liked to use amphetamines,” the Daily Mail reports Schleimer as saying. “Mostly everything that went wrong was because of this drug.”
Lawyers for the defense say that Britney’s breakup with Justin Timberlake is the reason for her downward spiral and breakdown in the past.
According to the lawyer, prior to the relationship with Justin, Britney was a “ray of light” and after the breakup, she became “angered and depressed.”
