Was Britney on Crystal Meth Back During Her Dark Days?

From TMZ:

Sam Lutfi — the self-proclaimed manager of Britney Spears who is suing her for defamation — claims in new legal docs a drug-sniffing dog found a cache of crystal meth in her home.

The allegations were filed in connection with the upcoming trial. Lutfi claims Britney, along with her parents Lynn and Jamie — defamed him by saying he drugged the singer during her dark period.

In the docs, Lutfi talks about what he would want Britney to testify about. As of now, she will not take the stand because a judge has found she is not competent to testify as a result of the conservatorship.

Lutfi says in the docs Britney should testify about an incident in 2007 …. he claims he “brought drug-sniffing dogs into her home … and they found a cache of crystal methedrine, which was destroyed.”

Lutfi goes on … “Britney should further testify that drug dogs found ‘hot spots of drug residue in the carpeting, where her young sons [ages 1 and 3] played during visits.”

Lutfi says he covered it up by shampooing and eventually replacing the carpet.

Lutfi also claims Britney told him her dad Jamie “was a violent racist,” and an abusive alcoholic.

Is it reaching? Probably. Is it plausible, however? Absolutely. Don’t you remember the funk that Britney had all on her face during that Sam Lutfi-Adnan Ghalib business? Because it was all pretty rank. I’m not going to say that Britney had absolutely nothing to do with meth, but I’m also not going to say that she had absolutely everything to do with meth, either. Because there was probably some cocaine thrown in for good measure, too.

Britney Spears Isn’t Allowed Within 50 Feet of Alcohol. Or Pretty Girls.

From the Daily Mail via Us Magazine:

The Hold It Against Me hitmaker’s team have banned alcohol from backstage, and have made sure she will not be sent any as a gift.

According to USMagazine.com, Britney’s representatives said in a note: “Very important. We require you to empty minibars of all alcohol. “And no gifts of wine or any other alcoholic beverages, please.”

Drink is not the only thing the 30-year-old is believed to have banned from the show – pretty women are also not allowed backstage.

A source said recently: “Britney has stipulated that none of the backstage staff working with her are too pretty or stylish.”

So. What, is Britney a raging alcoholic-in-recovery who also has a nasty set of self-esteem issues? Because running from your problems never really solves them, unless you’re running from booze. And then I guess that’d work out OK, but pretty girls? Come on. There’s going to be pretty girls all up in Britney’s face for the rest of her days on this earth, right? I know girlfriend’s got her problems and stuff, but there’s got to be a line drawn somewhere between rehabilitation and crisis management, and coddling and encouraging silly behavior.

Also, can we take a look at some photos that might give us some kind of clue as to why Britney (heavy medications aside) shouldn’t be drinking, ever? We probably should. Just so we remember, if we ever happen to run into Britney in a corner bar or somewhere, do not buy this lady a drink.

Watch This Video of Britney Spears on X Factor And Cry Forever

I didn’t watch X Factor last night. How horrible, right? It was Britney‘s first night, and I wanted to support her, I really did, but it just didn’t happen. My apology letter is in the mail right now, ok? If Britney will forgive me, than so can you.

But since I didn’t watch it, I set out this morning to find a whole bunch of clips so that I’d be able to tell you guys all about it and how Britney’s doing and if Demi Lovato was doing something stupid with her hair again or whatever. But this was the first clip that I watched. And I can’t do it anymore.

First of all, you guys remember Don Philip, right? He did this song with Britney, from her first album:

Ok, now watch the X Factor video again. Am I the only one crying? Because I’m crying, like, a lot. Just thinking about what poor Don has apparently went through, and knowing what Britney’s been through and also thinking about how I’m pretty sure my wisdom teeth are finally coming in and it hurts is just really doing a number on me. How are you guys feeling right about now?

Britney Made the First Move on Jason Trawick, Because Of Course She Did

So Britney did a recent interview with Elle magazine (with Jason Trawick—apparently one of the caveats in her conservatorship states that she can’t do interviews alone, I guess), and in it, she talked about her relationship, her sense of style, and not caring about what other people have to say about her, among other things.

Here’s Britney on her relationship with Jason Trawick, and how the two started hooking up:

Jason Trawick tells ELLE Britney made the first move in their relationship: “It was kind of one of those things where she moved, like, turned around, so we were face-to-face, and then-” Britney’s response? “Okay, that’s enough information, sweetie. It was sweet, just say that.”

OK, on the real, I think if I were in close proximity to Britney, and she “moved, like, turned around” so that we were face-to-face also, I would be really, really scared. I’m just being honest, here. The way Jason says that makes it sound like she was this creepy, venomous snake getting ready to feed or something, and honestly, it kind of paints a scary picture.

Anyway, here’s Britney on her fashion sense and style:

“I love my jeans and my sweats-I’m really just a tomboy at heart. So it’s really hard for me to be like Kim Kardashian and be makeup- and hair-ready every time I go out of my house. I’m not a believer in that, you know? On the other hand, when you do wear those sweats, you’re like, Oh God, I should step it up a notch.”

And finally, on those pesky rumors that she’s not the Britney that we see on TV:

“I guess I’ve been under the microscope so long that I don’t even pay attention to the nonsense anymore. I gave up getting upset about things people make up about me a long time ago.”

On the whole, cute interview. And this photo? This one right here?:

Britney Spears’ Conservatorship Isn’t Over Because of A “Medical Issue”

A photo of Britney Spears

From TMZ:

There’s a reason Britney Spears’ conservatorship has lasted 4 1/2 years with no end in sight — it’s because she has a serious medical issue that prevents her from making consistently sound decisions … TMZ has learned.

Documents were filed Tuesday in the conservatorship case, urgently asking the judge to seal certain records.  In the papers, lawyers for the conservators called the records “highly sensitive,” adding “irreparable harm and immediate danger” would befall Britney if the documents weren’t sealed.

Multiple sources with firsthand knowledge tell TMZ … the records are medical documents outlining Britney’s condition and treatment.

We’re told the singer has a disorder affecting her personality that can affect her state of mind.  We’re told she is doing “extremely well” but needs the safety net of a conservatorship.

Sources tell us there is no plan to end the conservatorship, and the judge is completely down with it.

FYI … there are 2 components of the conservatorship — the personal and the business.  The personal conservatorship allows Jamie Spears and Jason Trawick to make life decisions for her.  The business conservatorship involves managing Britney’s career and fortune.  As for the business side, we’re told it will probably go on indefinitely because it has been incredibly successful.

This is interesting, so let’s speculate, all right? I think it’s strange that Britney’s medical records are being sealed just now, and not back when she had that big episode. And if Britney has this “disorder affecting her personality” that could cause “irreparable harm and immediate danger” if anyone found about it, then what could it be? I thought it was pretty well documented and widely acknowledged that Britney was severely bipolar, and even if I just made that up, it’s not a secret that she’s not all that balanced mentally. So what disorder could she have that would surprise anyone this much?

Jason Trawick is Sick of Being Britney Spears’ Babysitter

Let’s just hope he doesn’t go out and CHEAT ON HER like some people might.

From Radar Online:

The Toxic singer and her fiance of over 7 months, Jason Trawick, are having major problems in their relationship due to the pressure of her new judging gig, multiple sources tell RadarOnline.com exclusively.

“Their relationship has been majorly rocky ever since she started filming The X Factor,” a source reveals to Radar. “They are constantly fighting about everything, and it isn’t good.”

Another source says that Jason, who became Britney’s co-conservator in April 2012, and has been by her side since she started her judging gig on the hit talent show in May 2012, is less than pleased that he has gone from being a big time Hollywood agent to Britney’s full-time babysitter.

“When Jason left his job at William Morris Endeavor in May 2011, it was under the impression that he was going to be managing Britney’s career, but that hasn’t happened,” the source says. “Now he feels like he is the househusband and errand boy in the relationship, and that isn’t what he signed up for.

“Part of his role as co-conservator is to be with Britney every second that she is on the set of The X Factor, and he is getting fed up with it.”

Britney’s onset antics have become a major issue and have become Trawick’s responsibility to control and deal with.

“He is constantly having to discipline her because of her erratic behavior on the show, which is creating major riffs in their relationship as well, because Britney doesn’t like to be scolded or told what to do,” the first source says.

“The mixing of business with pleasure has really damaged their relationship, and they are both really unhappy at this point.”

What’s next, an announcement that they’re taking a break? I realize that, for legal purposes, it probably won’t happen, but it wouldn’t surprise me in the least. We’ve just had the summer of surprises over here, guys, what with Katie Holmes finally growing a set and Kristen Stewart cheating on Robert Pattinson with an older, much-less-attractive married-with-children man … what’s next? I can’t even begin to imagine.

MISSING: Two Eyebrows! REWARD: Six Cases of Diet Pepsi!

This is a photo that Britney Spears posted to her Facebook account over the last day or so, showing one awesome bikini body, two adorable young children, a non-trashed hotel (?) room, and the glaringly-obvious absence of two eyebrows, and anyone who’s ever seen Pink Floyd’s ‘The Wall’ knows what a bad, bad look the whole no-eyebrows thing can be on the wrong face.

Aside from all of that business, though, girlfriend looks great, right? From the neck down, she looks almost like the old Britney that everyone’s always inquiring about. From the neck up? Well. She looks like a drugged-out Bob Geldof, now, doesn’t she?

Can we maybe go ahead and do something about that, Britney’s handlers? Come on now.
