The attorney for Sam Lutfi, who was once upon a time the manager for Britney Spears when the singer was at her most desperate low, is claiming that Lutfi had drug dogs come in to search her house and that a substance was found in Spears’ possession that was probably “crystal meth.”
Lutfi’s attorney Joseph Schleimer dropped this bombshell on the jury in Lutfi’s trail against Spears’ mom Lynne Spears for making claims in her autobiography, “Through the Storm: A Real Story of Fame and Family in a Tabloid World,” that Lutfi drugged Britney and kept her isolated and away from everyone.
“My client was made a scapegoat for drug abuse and erratic behavior of Britney Spears,” Schleimer told the jury, most of whom knew of the singer but hadn’t followed her career or personal troubles.
Schleimer claimed Spears favored amphetamines and that the dogs turned up a substance the Grammy-winner told Lutfi was probably crystal meth.
Lutfi is also suing for monies he believes he is entitled to from an agreement he signed with Spears that would give him 15% of her earnings as her manager.
The shock claims didn’t stop there as Schleimer went on to state that Spears overdosed while Lutfi was in charge of her career:
“He was terrified of being her manager when she overdosed,” Schleimer said.
I bet Lynne thought she finally had this weasel out of her life. Lutfi might get a judgment for some of the money he claims he is owed under the manger contract, but I don’t see his libel claims against Lynne going anywhere as they’ll be extremely hard to prove.
One report claims that Britney shaved her head during that chaotic period of her life to hide drug evidence.
