Brit's Bodyguard Witnessed Drug Use ... Allegedly

9/24/2007 11:36 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Britney Spears' former bodyguard just appeared on "Today," where he described seeing the popwreck engage in some toxic activity on numerous occasions -- but never near her kids.


Tony Barretto, along with Gloria Allred, talked to Matt Lauer about Spears' alleged drug use, saying he witnessed her using on two occasions -- once in a club booth and again in a closed off bathroom.

Tony worked for Brit for two months after she left rehab, and says that while she was a definitely a user, he'd "never seen her use drugs in the presence of her children."

Who in the hell are you people??? It's obious you mothers drop you guys on your heads several times. You guys making these comments against some one who actually wants nothing better then to expose a mother who is lacking any parenting skills and all you Idiots can say is that he's in it for the money. As for the boys they don't need money to be happy in life they need someone who cares what kind of men they can become for our future and not spoiled white trash brats like their mother is teaching them to be. Thank God some is there to help save them.

"Thank God some is there to help save them." YEAH, OKAY DUDE.

Did he pick those kids up after the minute he saw her behavior and run to CPS?

I would be totally on this guys side if 4 months ago he was on TMZ for being the guy who showed up at the Malibu PD with two young children belonging to Britney Spears saying he feared for their safety after he witnessed her using drugs in front of them, STARVING THEM, or beating them...

Fat Tony sure knows how to open his mouth to talk about Bad Mom Britney and her poor kids now but didn't open his mouth while this mess was going on. Now that he don't have that high profile job he's ready to save the kids. I believe you Tony but your're just as bad as her for standing by and doing nothing. You didn't care about those kids, you cared about keeping your job. Did you call Social Services or the Police to have the kids removed for their own safety. It's easy to do what your're doing when you've been fired (you say unjustly) and you don't like your former employee. This is what former Yes people do when they are on the outside looking in. There are bodyguards that would give their lives for their clients and the best thing you could have done to prove you cared for those kids was lose your job (which couldn't have been that great) trying to save them.

He's SUING HER. Kinda kills his credibility. The worse she sounds the better his chances are in court.

Look at the liar he hired to represent him.

She's a mess. Needs help. But at this point I fear even if she does head into rehab that it's not going to help. She still doesn't think that there is anything wrong with her. She's in the "blame game" portion of things.

"witnessed her using on two occasions -- once in a club booth and again in a closed off bathroom. "

Some how I can't see Tony fitting in either one. Why would Britney take a male body guard into a bathroom with her? His story is starting to change from the first time he told it.
