Schleimer dredged up the dark details of Spears’ public unraveling to make the case that the ”Hold It Michael Kors Cross Body Bag Against Me” singer was a stubborn addict bent on self-destruction when left to her own devices.
The lawyer said Lutfi tried to keep her away from drugs from the time he started working with her in June 2007, but lost control in late December of that year because his mother was undergoing treatment for cancer and he had to leave Spears’ side.
The lawyer said Spears confided in Lutfi that she shaved her head during her infamous beauty salon display early in 2007 out of fear that someone would use her strands for toxicology testing to determine her drug history.
