Mystery Witness Alleges Drug Use by Britney

9/17/2007 4:16 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Tony Barretto, a former bodyguard for Britney Spears, filed a declaration in the Britney Spears/Kevin Federline custody battle which alleges "nudity, drug use and safety issues post-rehab."


Gloria Allred, Barretto's attorney, said in a press conference today that Brit's former hired muscle was prepared to testify under oath today, but that neither the court nor Britney's attorneys chose to cross-examine him. She said his declaration went "unrefuted and unchallenged."

Should Britney lose her kids?

Yes
No
Barretto started working for Britney when she got out of rehab, and was fired on May 17 because, said Allred, "He did not hear her when he was asked to pick up her hat."

Barretto, himself the father of young children, came forward, Allred says, because while working for Britney, he became "very concerned" about the safety of her two boys. Allred also said that she has spoken to County Counsel for Child Protective Services about Barretto's concerns.

#2 ~ How can you 'just let her be' when she is obviously abusing drugs while caring for her children? At this point, it isn't about HER, it's about her children and their well being. I seriously doubt this man would come forward with false accusations and risk being sued. If this is truly the case, thank goodness he is coming forward...for the kid's sake!

Big dea, Britt tested NEGATIVE for drugs in rehab. This guy can be labeled a DISGRUNGLED EMPLOYEE at being fired and K-FED has PUBLICALLY STATED he loves to smoke pot. This guy is irrelevant and Alred is just a media whore.
