Britney Spears’ second brush with an ex-bodyguard came in 2007. At the time, the singer was in the midst of her custody battle over sons Sean and Jayden Federline. CBS News reported that the presiding judge had called for Spears to submit to regular drug testing, and just under a week later, her former bodyguard, Tony Barretto, revealed that he had played a part in that. He said he had been an unnamed witness in the case and claimed that he’d seen the pop star use drugs on more than one occasion. 

As for why he’d opted to tell the court about what he saw, Barretto revealed to Today that he was concerned for the wellbeing of her sons. It was a sentiment that another ex-bodyguard, Fernando Flores, would echo a few years later when he decided to go public about his own experience working with Spears. 

In a 2010 lawsuit against Spears (more on that in a bit), Flores claimed that he’d also seen Spears make some questionable choices regarding her kids. For one, in court documents obtained by Radar, Flores alleged that Spears had used his belt to hit one of her sons. Granted, another former employee rubbished the claims, anonymously telling The Sun, “Britney may have been a little out of control herself sometimes, but never would harm her babies, never in a million years would she hurt them” (via Fox News).
