Britney went bald because of drugs, according to her ex-manager Sam Lufti.
The singer and X Factor judge is currently being sued by Lufti for defamation, libel, and breach of contract, and during an appearance in court on Thrsday, his lawyer, Joe Schleimer, alleged that the his client’s former employer shaved her head back in 2007 because she wanted to hide the evidence of her drug use.
In his statement, Schleimer claimed:
“She liked to use amphetamines. Mostly everything that went wrong [during Spears’ infamous meltdown] was because of this drug.”
The allegation serves as Lufti’s response to the claim that Britney’s mom, Lynne Spears, made in her book, Through the Storm: A Real Story of Fame and Family in a Tabloid World, where she claimed that Lufti was largely responsible for a lot of Britney’s problems during her meltdown, and that he (according to Lynne) kept her drugged and isolated.
Lufti’s lawyer also told the court that Britney was addicted to crystal meth, and right before her meltdown became increasingly paranoid that her hair contained traces of all the illegal drugs she had been abusing… so she shaved it all off.
The pop superstar allegedly took such extreme action because she was afraid that a judge might test her hair for drugs, and if it turned up positive, she would lose custody of her two children, Sean Preston and Jayden James.
Britney has yet to comment on the allegations.
