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.

She is simply acting like a very wealthy, slightly wild, single mother. He on the other hand is a lazy money grubbing man whore. If he had married a school teacher he would be forced to work (a real job) and pay her alimony and child support. He should see if he could get his job back at that car wash, get a couple of room-mates, and pay his own rent. Please people it is all about the money, NOT THE CHILDREN!

if he was so worried about britney's kids, why didn't he do something about this when it was going on, instead of waiting.

I believe everyone who voted for brit to lose her kids, r those who don't have children. You won't know that pain that will cause sum 1 to lose thier kids.
ANYWAYS........KFED is only doing it because hes a loser and broke. He can only make himself by her money which is pretty pethitic. He should go make more commercials to support his kids.
Britt is having a hard time right now..... Just like the rest of us.... But all her DRAMA is out on BLAST. I think we need to cut her sum slack.

C;mon Butter.....Process what saw? Either the kids were in danger or they weren't . No way he can say he's a father of little kids, see kids being endangered and do nothing, trying to "process" what he saw. And now that he's "processed", he goes out and hires media whore, Allred before he says anything? Let's get real. He may be telling te truth, but he cares nothing about the welfare of those kids. Just about getting his 15 mins.

You Britney fans are so delusional. Why is he telling the story now, because the court hearing is schedule for today. He was a secret witness for weeks maybe months. IDIOTS. Britney is losing her battles big time and you guys are not taking it well - you're just as bad as Joe Crocker!

Her drug test in rehab came back negative so she was NOT on drugs! Kevin's lawyer NEVER said that Britney was a terrible mother or that he thinks kids were in serious danger he offered a very vague reason as to why Kevin believes the kids should be taken away. If those kids were in serious danger they would have been taking away a long time ago. The fact that they havent goes to show how desperate K fed is to get more money before his spousal support checks stop in November.

Someone should do random drug test on Federline. He's the known drug user. Everyone knows abou this pot, ecstacy and alcohol.

Britney is being destroyed by the media and public opinion. She is still very young, just trying to find her way. She has, I know, hurt her own reputation BUT I do not think for one moment that she has ever put her kids in danger. Federline, the attorneys and all the people who work for her are only thinking about the MONEY and could care less about how her life is being destroyed. Britney will find her way back and the few comments in support of her is wonderful. Fererline wants her kids but he wants her money more. I feel so sorry for her and I can't imagine how difficult life must be for her - her every move is recorded and reported. Federline is following his attorneys advice and keeping a low profile but just wait until he gets his hands on Britney's money - Nanny's will raise the kids and he will live the life of the superstar that he will never be.
