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.

People...everything TMZ and Sam Lufti say should be taken with a grain of salt.

I have seen pics where she looked like she needed a shower bad and her hands are nasty. Starting to believe half of it's true.She's over the hill anyways all she can do now is lip sync and never could dance.

It's pretty evident that Britney was a mess with Lufti but doing well under her family. The Lufti is like an obsessed stalker and very creepy.

Thank you captain obvious. We all figured that out years ago when she actually shaved her head. Took me..oh 2 seconds to come to that conclusion. Britney is probably still on drugs.

Doesn't matter if she shaved it or not. The chemicals would still be excreted slowly into the hair foliclles for about 5yrs. You don't think it just disappears overnight did you.

Old news, that has always been a theory, but anyone with common sense knows they can use arm hair, leg hair, eyebrows, etc to test.

This isn't news. Any parent involved in a super-heated custody dispute even so far out as those of us in Pennsylvania knew why she shaved her head (then caved). The test for a strand of hair shows everything the parent has taken since root growth. This isn't rocket science. It's been six years since Britney shaved her head. Count how many other prominent female and male celebrity parents have shaved their heads since 2008.

So, what's your point? That you took advantage of a drug addict, or that you took advantage of someone who was mentally ill. Seems to me, it's the same thing.

I just assumed that was the reason she did it. She doesn't seem like the brightest bulb...
