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.

I thought something like drugs had to be involved, who does that unless they are high or disturbed

This is old news, it came out shortly after this happened that K.Fat was threating her that he was going to have her hair tested for drugs and she was going to loose her kids, so she shaved it.

NO NEW DETAILS HERE ...Thought this was understood at the time it happened. The press was following her around constantly ... and she was doing crazy things almost daily.
.
Everyone assumed she was on some kind of drugs at the time ... so when she shaved her head it was only logical to assume she was trying to hide long term evidence of drug abuse, risking losing custody of her sons.
Placing her on 5150 was a HUGE life changer for her. What a dramatic turn around. Too bad it isn't easier to invoke ... there would be so many more lives saved.

Call Lufti crazy, but all this 'ish makes sense. Anyone that is an adult and needs to have a conservatorship, has issues. If she's not fit to testify, she isn't fit to hold a job (hence her melt down at the beg of the show) or enter into a marriage or any legal contract. Can't have it both ways. She doesn't have much talent, but I feel sorry for the life she seems to be trapped in. Must be tough to be EVERYONE'S breadwinner. Folks are gonna ride that gravy train until it completely derails.

*Sigh* TMZ, I am SO disapppinted in you that you are seriously posting ANYTHING that comes out of this @#$$%*^%, mouth. TMZ, you reporting and printing anything Lufti says, makes you as ignorant as him. Sam should get his facts straight. HAIR, is not the only way to determine if someone is on drugs or not. HELLO.....Urine tests, blood tests. I dont think she shaved her head to hide anything. LUFTI proves how stupid HE is, by this comment, and TMZ, you prove how stupid you can be, by PRINTING IT! Since when did you start taking statements from drug pushing, loser, s*** bag as FACTS?? Shouldnt ONLY FACTS, be printed in social media?? TMZ, you must be getting desperate for stories if you have to resort back to bashing Britney and printing anything Sam Lufti says!
