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.

Again, I still don't see how this helps Lutfi. He was there with her through all of this and certainly didn't act concerned. In fact, he was calling the paps to take pics of her antics. So how does this incident play into his lawsuit? It doesn't. It muddles everything and a smart judge will know it. Some manager he was. lol

She acted crazy when Lutfi was her manager. She acts less crazy without Lutfi as her manager. If she was on as many drugs as Lutfi claims, he was a ****ing horrible manager, to be perfectly honest.

I think at that time everyone knew why she shaved her head, because of drugs. Glad she is doing better though.

What Are the Effects of Methamphetamine Use?
This is a list of effects associated with pure methamphetamine use. Because of how it's made, crystal meth is never pure, so the dangers associated with taking the street drug extend beyond these effects.


Common Immediate Effects


Euphoria
Increased energy and alertness
Diarrhea and nausea
Excessive sweating
Loss of appetite, insomnia, tremors, jaw-clenching
Agitation, irritability, talkativeness, panic, compulsive fascination with repetitive tasks, violence, confusion
Increased libido
Increased blood pressure, body temperature, heart rate, blood sugar levels, bronchodilation
Constriction of the walls of the arterties
In pregnant and nursing women, methampetamine crosses the placenta and is secreted in breast milk


Effects Associated with Chronic Use


Tolerance (needing more of the drug to get the same effect)
Drug craving
Temporary weight loss
Withdrawal symptoms including depression and anhedonia
"Meth Mouth" where teeth rapidly decay and fall out
Drug-related psychosis (may last for months or years after drug use is discontinued)


Effects of Overdose


Brain damage
Sensation of flesh crawling (formication)
Paranoia, hallucinations, delusions, tension headache
Muscle breakdown (rhabdomyolysis) which can lead to kidney damage or failure
Death due to stroke, cardiac arrest or elevated body temperature (hyperthermia)

SlimeyLufti: She was too fat! SlimeyLufti: She was strung out on Meth She is just one of those people who can be strung out on Meth and still eat til she's overweight. Lufti will never find a meal ticket like he found in Brit. But that doesn't mean he has to stop trying EVER! Sick minds. Lose em
