Tony Barretto Speaks!
The "secret witness" in Britney Spears' custody battle with KFed was one of her former bodyguards, Tony Barretto. The 27-year-old worked for Britney for 3 months. He said he came forward to testify, because he was concerned about SPF and JJ being a father to young kids himself. He spoke to The News of the World and the article is long as hell. I mean really long. I'm going to give you the rundown, but there's a lot more at News of the World.
OVERDOSE: He claims Britney almost overdosed at The Mondrian Hotel after a binge with Howie Day. This was just hours before her big comeback performance at Anaheim's House of Blues. He claims when he entered the room it was a mess and there was a mound of white powder on the dresser. He also saw a glass pipe which he said was used to smoke meth. "She was in a terrible state, just sweating and shaking. Her pupils were huge—I've never seen her so bad." Tony said when they asked her about it the next day she said, "Yeah, thank God we made it."
BOOZE: Brit would make her bodyguards make her Jack and Coke which is her favorite drink. They would try and trick her by only adding a splash of Jack to the top to make it seem stronger. Tony claims Brit would drink WHILE driving. Like literally drive with a drink in her hand. She smokes and drinks around the kids all the time.
MADE-UP LANGUAGE: He said Brit would talk in this made-up language of hers. She would speak it to the kids as well as her staff. He said one time he caught her by the trash cans talking to herself in her own language.
EATING: Brit gets up at around 2 in the afternoon. Eats Sushi for breakfast and munches on Special K cereal almost all day. She would always make them go to Starbucks and get her a hot and cold coffee drink. He said she would tan daily.
CLOTHES & SHOPPING: She makes her bodyguards take pictures of every outfit she wears daily and constantly asks them how she looks. He says the only time she was happy was when she was shopping. She'd carry around her AMEX Titanium card and the bodyguards were given $6,000 in her cash daily to pay for some of her shit. He said she would have stores closed down so she could shop in peace. She even had Rite-Aid shut down.
NUDITY: He was warned about her stripping before he started the job. He said she would get naked all the time around him and the other staff. She would even bend over while naked. He said she would always bring girls home and they would all get naked and go in the jacuzzi. Tony also claims she would grind against his crotch without any panties on.
HYGEINE: Brit didn't want her bodyguards to smell bad. They had to wear cologne and couldn't sweat. However, Tony said Brit would fart and burp all the time.
DRUGS: He claims he saw her snort some white powder on two occasions. Once in a bathroom and another time in a private booth at Hyde.
He goes on and on and on and on and on. Basically, Britney has mental problems, doesn't like taking care of her kids, has problems with booze and drugs, likes getting naked, farts a lot and talks in a made-up language like Nell.
KIDS: He felt more like a babysitter than a bodyguard. Whenever the kids would cry she would pawn them off to her assistant, nanny or bodyguard. She would call the doctor all the time if she couldn't make the kids stop crying. She barely took care of them.
Click here to read the entire article, because I'm sure I left a bunch of shit out. He goes on and on and on. It's like 7 pages. There's also video interviews with Tony on the site. It's a mess! I believe it, but at the same time Tony sold his story. I don't know what to think.
