Just when it seemed like things couldn’t go any worse for Britney Spears following her disastrous performance at the MTV Awards, her luck continues on a downward spiral. On Monday, reports informed that the 25-year-old pop star could temporarily lose custody of her two sons, and that her lawyer and manager both quit. And on Tuesday, a judge determined that the singer is a “habitual, frequent and continuous” user of alcohol and controlled substances, and as a result must now have twice-weekly random testing and see a “parenting coach,” along with her ex, Kevin Federline.
This latest ruling confirms the possibility that Spears could lose her two kids, Sean Preston, 2, and Jayden James, 1. This information was released after the singer’s bodyguard, Tony Barretto, accused her of having problems with nudity, drug use and “safety issues involving the children” during a hearing at the Los Angeles Family Court.
On top of that, the songstress’s lawyer, Laura Wasser, who represented Spears during her divorce suit against Federline, 29, and until now has defended Spears in the legal battle to maintain custody of her kids, resigned. This doesn’t pose a huge problem for Spear, though, who supposedly has already hired a new legal defender, Marci Levine.
And as if this weren’t enough, on Monday, The Firm, the company that handled the artist’s management, also decided to leave the pop star. “It saddens us to confirm media reports that we have terminated our professional relationship with Britney Spears,” the management company said in a statement. “We believe Britney is enormously talented, and has made a terrific record. But current circumstances have prevented us from properly doing our job. We wish Britney the best.”
