Following an explosive interview in which he claimed his former employer almost overdosed just days after being released from rehab, Britney Spears‘ former bodyguard Tony Barretto is now revealing an even darker side of the pop star in an interview with London’s Daily Mail.
“There was a time when I thought she was going to hurt the kids,”Barretto says, referring to Spears’ two young sons, Sean Preston, 2, and Jayden James, 1.
Barretto says at one point he and another member of the singer’s security team became concerned that Spears was “shutting down” like she had during her now-infamous head-shaving incident and might injure her two sons.
“He said she’d been talking about suicide then, and this was the same. Britney was sobbing. She screamed,”says Barretto. “[He said] ‘I’m worried about the kids. Don’t let her go swimming with them.’ I asked, ‘Is she going to drown them?’ He said, ‘I don’t know.’ I started to cry. How am I supposed to protect someone like that?”
Barretto also goes on to allege that Spears used drugs in front of him and would often sneak off in the middle of the night without her security.
“I’ve seen her take narcotics in nightclubs on only two occasions, but her drugged behavior — fidgety, nervous, jumpy — I’ve seen at her home, too, so I assume she was on drugs at home,”he says. “At the club, she was snorting a powdery substance, which I assume to be cocaine or methamphetamine. I think she leads a secret lifestyle and hides it from those she doesn’t trust. She gets upset with the notion of having to go there.”
After Barretto’s submission of declaration in court on September 17, the singer is now required (per judge’s orders) to take bi-weekly drug tests and attend parenting classes until further notice.
