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?

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.

Get off her back you freaks!
As for all the Clowns that were supposed to show loyalty on the job, thats pretty lame when you have to find an excuse so ludicrus as to why you were fired. Yep, gang up on her and her money. You wont have much left the next time you end up looking for a job with all the bad publicity about you. Besides, its all heresay anyway and wont hold up in a court of law, her best bet is to pack up and move outta state away from all the losers and soaks that are around her constantly.

Who cares. If everyone would stop listening to her pathetic attempts at music, and stop scooping up every mag that has her picture on it, maybe she would clean herself up and understand the peril her career is in. She is washed up. If she would commit herself to being a GREAT mother to those boys then everything else; her career, her image will fall back into place and she could be back on top. Until then, she is a trainwreck. God help her and her little boys.

She should have lost her kids a long time ago. I hope they get away from her. They were happy away from her when she was in rehab with K-Fed.

britney and k-fed remain at 50/50...

the only reason why i can see him going for custody and trying to pull as much garbage as he can against her is for money. sorry... even if you dislike the girl, it is wrong to use children for your own benefit.. if his kids were 'in danger', he should have never agreed to a 50/50 - but he only did so b/c if he fought for more custody at that time, it would have held up his payments. he needed to get paid first, THEN worry about his kids...

now, his attorney has indicated that most of the people have been deposed that were supboened, they do not know what the next course of action is, but to see what the depositions indicated and then go from there. Completely fishing on this and it is sad to see. they are trying to build up as much as they can to collectively make her look bad...

her new lawyer will take over and i'm sure will be fantastic. as for Allred, someone please tell her that her time is up....

Fat ass...And for Gloria All-head-GO BACK TO WHERE YOU CAME FROM! Where was this guy all concerned when he was employed? Where was he? He was GETTING PAID! Now, just like K-Fed-the money is going away and he is milking her for everything he can. Talk about people getting their 15 minutes of fame.
She is in need of help-no doubt, but this is a damn circus and Gloria and this fella are the freakin clowns!

ok, i do not feel sorry for her. She is a grown woman and chose to have to kids, and she needs to choose to make them her priority, not a "comeback". the only attention she should be craving is the attention of her kids.

A mother on drugs should not be around children. Period. I have always suspected this is why she shaved her head.

Why do you guys keep saying money is what this guy is after?! He's not going to get any money for coming forward about this!!! He is doing this for the safety of those two little boys!

Britney Spears should lose those kids until she gets her act cleaned up, BUT K-FED ( THE GOLD DIGGING BUM ) SHOULD NOT GET THEM

I knew it would just be a matter of time for those kids to be taken from her. She should have taken her mother-hood seriously when she had the chance, now she has been acting like a freak for TOO LONG and she has messed up her chances with those boys. She needs to get some HELP and get her act together......NOW!!

How did Gloria Allred become involved in this. Did she just pop up out of the Blue with this new witness. Is she k-fed lawyer too.?

Chid Services have been called a zillion times and some of those times by Kfed himself and each and EVERY TIME, Child Services, walks away and says Brit has done nothing wrong. That should be the last word in the custody dispute.

Have we all missed something here............Kevin is a pot smoker. He has been quite open about it and if I am not mistaken is this not a drug. Last time I checked it is still considered an illegal substance. Why is no one mentioning this in the court process?

Apparently YOU missed that K-Fed lives in Encino, CA. He may have a license to purchase and use marijuana legally as a medication. You know, like 750,000 other Californians.

Kevin is on drugs too....He has been doing drugs longer than Britney. His baby mama Shar Jackson confirmed his use to Perez Hilton all caught on tape. Why not enter that into court and better yet have Shar take the stand and question her about it. She has seen it first hand.
