Britney's Backup Dancers -- Don't Feed Her Drugs!

3/19/2011 2:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Working for Britney Spears is like owning a Gremlin, they both come with a set of instructions -- the biggest one ... keep Britney away from drugs and alcohol!


TMZ has obtained a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) that dancers were required to sign before working on her latest music video. It specifically states, "Contractor acknowledges that it is essential that [Britney] not be exposed to any alcohol, drugs, or controlled substances."

The NDA even goes on to say that the dancers can be subjected to drug testing at any time and can be fired for failing a test or even refusing to take one.

With Britney comes much responsibility.

This is old news. They had to sign the same thing during her tour.

I am not sure where you received this, but I hope you didn't out anyone by leaving the footer on it which may indicate who this copy belongs to. The footer is : GHLHIDOCS_211045_1

I see nothing wrong with an NDA. People these days are harder to trust than in the past.

I think that's awesome. Good for Britney and good for those who care about her well-being. I applaud them for taking a stand like that.

I notice the NDA does not state that we are not allowed to sleep, impregnate, marry, and then divorce her as backup dancers....WINNING!

Lets hope she can stay that way . In her business its very hard to not do either ... The " Business " makes it that way . Its another form of control " They " like to have on them .. Keep the good fight BS and try not to let them take you down ...

So, it sounds like she is still absolutely beyond controlling any of her actions and must be watched after like a small, stupid child just looking desperately for a way to strain at the leash. What a brilliant venture it is go back into a world known for being rife with drugs and partying. Daaa-huuuurrr!!!

This is a really good thing!

Britney has a disorder and she and her team have taken responsibility for it! This is what successful management looks like and this is proof that recovery works!

Good luck to you Miss Brit and welcome back! Your kids are beautiful and so are you!

I realize that anyone, anywhere in the world can post a comment here. But, in middle America, that NDA spells out taking personal responsibility and being personally accountable.

THIS IS NOT NEWS! REPEAT: N-O-T NEWS! Britney's dad initiated this agreement when he was first granted conservatorship! And good for him. I'm glad someone is in her corner & not s******ing while she unravels. I don't know what they give to stars in Hollywood, but (as evidenced by more than one) it's fairly powerful and does indeed break the brain. The old Britney will probably never return, but at least this Britney is making slow strides at reconstructing her life.

At most jobs employees are required to take drug tests as a condition of their employment. Also, if they were ever found to be in possession of drugs or alcohol while at work, they would most certainly be fired. Sounds like a standard condition of employment.

I'd dangle a mini jack daniels bottle over her head with a fishing rod.

Why is TMZ trying to make a news story out of this? I actually think it is a great idea. The measures they have taken such as this have obviously been successful in keeping Britney healthy.

It is too bad that Lohan's family has not been able to do what Spear's family has done for her.
