Lawyers for the defense in the Britney Spears trial have just blamed Britney's breakup with Justin Timberlake for her downward spiral that ultimately got her 5150'd, TMZ has learned.

According to a lawyer for Lynne Spears and Britney -- who made opening statements for the defense just moments ago -- the breakup with Justin ended in pain and sent the singer in a downward spiral. 

According to the lawyer, prior to the relationship with Justin, Britney was a "ray of light." But after the breakup ... she became "angered and depressed."

Interesting ... because based on JT's "Cry Me a River" video, we were under the impression that he dumped Britney's ass because she cheated on him.

Story developing ...

Cry me a River was about Elisha Cuthbert who cheated on Justins best friend. It had nothing to do with Britney.

Didn't her relationship with JT end years before this happened? She was remarried with two kids by then.... how in the world could they blame JT for her issues years later. Why didn't she just tell the truth? She was under extreme pressure to live up to what her mother and everyone else wanted her to be. She'd been thrown into the spotlight when she was like, 10 years old and never had a break... that will send anyone into a mental meltdown. Stop blaming it on everyone else and just take personal responsibility for your problems. I don't even understand WHY this is in court right now... but then again, I don't really care.
