Sam Lutfi

Britney Shaved Her Head

To Hide Drug Evidence

Britney Spears was super-paranoid that her hair contained traces of the hardcore drugs she was using -- and that's why she SHAVED IT ALL OFF during her infamous 2007 meltdown ... at least according to Sam Lutfi.

Sam's lawyer, Joseph Schleimer, has been telling the court ... Britney was a serious drug-abuser ... who had a penchant for crystal meth.

Schleimer suggested Britney was concerned that a judge would test her hair for drugs -- and when it turned up positive, she would lose custody of her kids.

So, Britney ... being Britney ... believed that if she chopped off her hair, she could beat the drug test ... at least that's what Lutfi's lawyer is implying.

Britney's side has yet to respond.

If that was a well planned out thing she wouldn't have showed up to a salon randomly one evening, shaving her own hair in front of paparazzi. She would have done it in secret and worn wigs.

Yea right. Try again.....Drugs can also be traced through Urine test, so hair is NOT the only way to find out.

It sounds like it's some truth to the story because Brit was acting really strange at that time!

This isn't new news. The same story came out after she shaved her head. She got paranoid because K-Fed said he was going to have her hair drug tested and she'd lose custody.

Lies! If that had been the case. She would of shaved her head at home and burnt the hair to discard the evidence, instead of doing it so publicly and leaving perfectly good pieces of hair behind for "people" to test. It makes no sense!

There's no point in shaving your head when there are hairs all over your body. They can test ANY hair on your body. She would have needed to shave her ENTIRE body down to the skin. Waxing is a much smarter option as it completely removes the entire hair. There is always a little hair left outside the skin and a lot left under it when you shave.
Stupid and not well thought out, like most moves celebrities make.

who cares, you were the one getting her hooked on the drugs. I'm sure she did get crazy into drugs, all celebs are around it enough and most of them do something. She's at least recovered and gotten her life on track by getting you out of it. You just wanted to bleed her bank account, get her drugged and have your way with her.
