An attorney for Britney Spears’ ex-manager — who is suing her in a Los Angeles court for breach of contract — told the court yesteday, Oct. 18, 2012, that "Spears used his client as a ‘scapegoat’ to cover up her use of amphetamines, including speed, reports AP," says USA Today.
According to the USA Today article, "The accusations refer to the years that Sam Lutfi was Spears’ manager, before he was fired from her team in 2008."
Lutfi’s attorney, Joseph Schleimer, during his opening statement, showed "photos of Spears with a shaved head and hitting an SUV with an umbrella. He said one of Lutfi’s first actions after being hired as manager was having drug-sniffing dogs search the singer’s hilltop home," notes the USA Today article.
The article continues about Spears, "’She liked to use amphetamines — speed or uppers,’ said Schleimer, according to E! News. ‘She liked to take that drug. And most of the things that went wrong were related to that drug.’"
