Brit Gets Scared "Out There," Says Pal

11/1/2007 8:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Britney Spears is under plenty of stress -- but her mood is good, says constant companion/adviser/pal Sam Lufti.

Sam tells OK! that despite the constant drug tests, the "scary" paparazzi, and the general turmoil, Brit's mental state is "excellent." Lufti, who says he's a family friend, also sets the record straight on Mama Lynne (all good), drug tests (all passed), and the new video (all secret.)

Meanwhile, was totally distraught after Kevin Federline left her, getting "crazy and depressed," according to her assistant at the time of the breakup.

Katie Machado, Spears' former personal assistant, tells Us that Brit was so unhinged after her split from K-Fed that she'd look at her sons and ask, "Where's your daddy? I need help. Where's your daddy?" Indeed, Spears even hung her wedding dress up in her bedroom, and would ask, "Why did he do this to me?"

Britney going over the edge, NO, of course she's going nuts besides get fatter by the day and being a terrible parent. Britney is going thru hell and back, being on 25 and supporting most of your freeloading ass family for the last 10 years or so it's got to drive anyone nuts. Add to that she's really not a good singer or now even a performer, but people are buying her CD because she's Britney Spears and not because it's good!!!

Twitny has the brains of an acorn, the morals of aa alley cat and the mothering instinct of a piece of furniture. For someone who is "scared", she certainly courts the papparazzi enough.

Sounds like Britney's assistant is trying to make Kevin look like the bad guy now. Didn't she file for the divorce?

Britney needs support now. She does not need more bashing. She needs to get back on her feet not only for herself but for her sons. Based on what I have read so far about her from TMZ, she is not helping hersel or unwilling to accept any. I think her first step toward recovery is to accept she needs help.

There's no doubt that this girl is heading for a complete breakdown. I really don't know how she handles all the crap and why she subjects herself to the paps and the notariety, she must have very low self esteem, especially if she thinks she will get good press by going with undies and driving all over hell and gone in her Benz. I don't know how she will ever live down all the bizarre stuff that she's done and has been splashed all over the net and press. She needs Dr Phil.

WHILE i agree she needs help, MAJOR help... not from Dr. Phil, Dr. Phil is a f*in idiot.
A real doctor/psychologist, maybe, Dr. Phil. NO!

Wow    

a) Why is Brit awesome? She is the furthest thing from awesome this world has right now

b) WTF? SHE left Kevin. She filed for divorce, not him.

This is the stupidest thing ever. TMZ is killing this chick. She needs the attention and they are all to obliged to give it to her. Britney is going to end up killing herself one way or another within a year. And as much as the photogs are always around her, I wouldn't be surprised if they won't have pictures of it. This is an embarrassing narrative on our society. Leave her alone, go find someone that matters and harass them for awhile

If this is true ,it proves that the text message was a way to control Kevin .Behavior most teenagers display in times of turmoil and instability thinking Kevin would come running to her side and beg her not to divorce him .Only problem is these ploy's only work on other teenagers ,which suffice it to say Kevin decided at that moment he was a man not a boy ...and wasn't falling for it .Go Kevin Federline --love those boys regardless of their trainwreak of a Mom (a term which I use looseley ,I might add !) .
