Three years ago today, September 18, they surprised us all with a wedding. Now, the battle between Britney Spears and Kevin Federline takes a stunning turn.
One new claim, made in OK! magazine, is that Britney is battling an eating disorder.
A source told the magazine that Spears will do anything to lose weight, including starving herself as well as binging and purging.
A pal reportedly told OK! that Spears said, “I’ll starve myself because I’m fat.”
OK! magazine’s source also alleges Britney is addicted to diet pills and combines them with large amounts of coffee and RedBull.
Bodyguard dramaThen, there’s the big guy — Britney’s former bodyguard Tony Baretto.
“He became very concerned about the children and their safety,” Baretto’s lawyer, Gloria Allred said at a press conference Monday.
Greeted by a media mob, Baretto, showed up for a child custody hearing in LA between Spears and Federline, accompanied by Allred and ready to testify against Britney.
“Our client was prepared to testify on issues of nudity by Ms. Spears, drug use and safety issues involving the children,” Allred said.
These serious allegations could lead to Britney losing custody of her children sources have speculated.
Baretto remained mum while Allred spoke to the press. Baretto, who held hands with his wife during the press conference, worked for Britney earlier this year.
“He was terminated because he did not hear her when she asked him to pick up her hat,” Allred claimed.
When a reporter asked why it has taken so long for Baretto to come forward if he was concerned about the children, Allred said issues of safety were involved.
“Privacy,” she answered. “We have been concerned about his privacy and safety. We didn’t want people coming to his home and you know, disturbing his young children.”
Laura Wasser, Brit’s lawyer at the time, attended the hearing and branded Baretto, “not a reliable witness.”
On Monday both Wasser and management company – The Firm, parted ways with the star.
Meanwhile, the kids were spending time with Grandma, Britney’s mother Lynn. Paparazzi captured her taking a stroll with them, near Kevin Federline’s home.
Monday night, Britney’s sister Jamie Lynn Spears attended a concert by Britney’s ex – Justin Timberlake with her dad. She had no comment on Baretto’s allegations.
