According to her parents, the Mouseketeers’ high-profile break-up was at the heart of Brit’s breakdown. It was after that when she spiraled out of control, marrying twice and using drugs to get over her heartbreak.
The Spears’ long time family lawyer Leon Gladstone said in court, “They (Justin and Brit) had a big relationship, and it ended painfully. In 2003 her parents noticed that she had changed over the break-up and noticed she was depressed … she went to Vegas and got married to a childhood friend for 55 hours and they saw that she was becoming distant with her parents and become concerned she was using illegal substances.”
Sam Lufti is suing Brit for breach of contract, claiming she agreed to give him 15% of her earnings. He’s also suing her mother Lynne for defaming him in her book Through the Storm–in which she claimed he drugged Britney—and her father Jamie for allegedly ‘punching’ him.
Britney has been under a “guardianship order” controlled by her father since her 2008 very public breakdown.
The family lawyer made the following heart filled statement at the trial:
“This is a story of a close family, but not a perfect one. It’s a story of a man who actually wanted nothing more for his daughter than to live and be well. It’s a story of a father who has had to step up and take action that he never thought he would have to take….actions that didn’t perhaps endear his daughter to him.”
Earlier this week, Sam Lufti testified that Britney popped up to 30 ampthetamine pills a day and said: “Mostly everything that went wrong was because of this drug.”
