Sam Lutfi

Britney OD'd on Amphetamines

The Night She Was 5150'd

Britney Spears
took a huge amount of amphetamines the night she was strapped to a stretcher and placed on a 5150 hold -- so claims Sam Lutfi's lawyer in the opening statements of his defamation case.

Lutfi's lawyer, Joseph Schleimer, told the jury, on January 28, 2008, Britney had an amphetamine script filled. Schleimer says she took 6 to 8 pills early in the day, and several more later and went off the rails.

Lutfi's lawyer also said he tried to get Britney to meet with a psychiatrist 2 days before she was 5150'd, but Brit refused. 

And there's this ... during Britney's disastrous appearance on the MTV Awards in 2007, Lutfi felt she was such a mess she shouldn't do it, because she was overweight and didn't rehearse, but Britney wouldn't hear it.

I'm pretty sure, actually 100% SURE, that the girl was driven to the brink of suicide a la Marilyn Monroe for having 80 cars follow her into bathrooms, climbing into her mega-millions security-system-secured homes, and allowing people like TMZ readers to believe anything and everything read about her and she got fed up. Has she EVER been seen with even a glass of wine?? Has she EVER done ANYTHING illegal, other than driving over the foot of a photographer who stepped in FRONT of her tire? The answer would be 'no'. She is NOT that interesting, she is NOT that special, except when the lights and the makeup and the machine is turned on, which I love. Forgive her for being a normal person who doesn't (or at least didn't THEN) realize that she would be stalked 24/7 to entertain YOU people. Go on Youtube and watch this VMAs performance alongside the rehearsal with her stand-in. It's about 98% identical. She didn't rehearse? She didn't know what she was doing? The tape proves you wrong. Was she petrified? Was she trying WAY too hard to be sexy because that's what we've built her up to be, even though she's NEVER sold "sex" (no, she hasn't, it's all projection)? YES. She fell for the fake image of her that WE created and THAT'S the mess we saw. I'm glad she's doing so well now and is happy and looking super fine again. PS- what "comeback"? Even during this period you guys seem to love jerking off to that ended YEARS AGO her albums and singles still broke records, topped the charts, and dominated the airwaves. Sell-out world tours, #1 singles, over and over and over, even with all this garbage. What more do you people want?

Why won't and why don't you leave this girl ALONE! You must love damaging people. You harassed her and maligned her till she broke and that was not good enough. When she fought her way back, you start your hounding again. Creeps!

Poor Brit Brit. How embarrassing to have gone through this in the public and now have it dragged out again for all to remember. Her VMA performance was pretty bad but I gotta say it was not because of her body! She had 2 kids and not even a pooch! People are so cruel.
