Britney Spears' Lawyer Blames Justin Timberlake For Meltdown


While Justin Timberlake is in Italy celebrating his marriage to Jessica Biel, Britney Spears' lawyer is in court accusing him of driving Brit craycray!

Brit Brit's lawyers made their opening statements today in defense of the Spears family trial against former manager Sam Lufti. According to the legal team, when Justin broke up the pop princess it sent her "in a downward spiral," that ended in her hair-shaving meltdown!

The suits told the jury that before their famous split, Britney was a "ray of light." But after the breakup she became "angered and depressed."

Why would they make that claim in court??

Probs to prove that it was her broken heart, and NOT her a reported addiction to meth — like Lufti claims — that caused her to shave her head and walk into public bathrooms barefoot.

If that's their angle, it's a good one.

We all know a bad break up can lead people to do some nUuUuUutty things!

    Britney's family is NOT denying drug accusations… they are copping to her drug use as well as mental instability… they're not saying she did nothing wrong… they're issue is with Sam being a leech and wanting to keep her drugged up… he's seeking damages for his reputation and a portion of her album sale profits from Blackout!! As far as justin is concerned…they are NOT blaming him! They're saying thats where it began, with the breakup…whoevers fault it was… she began to rebel after that… her 55hr marriage… she married kevin in a rush and just kept digging herself a deeper and deeper hole.

    Considering the break up happened years before the jury probably thinks she is crazy now. She married and had two kids inbetween and seemed fine. It was after her breakup with Kevin that she really went nuts. Using Justin, and on his wedding day, is just about the dumbest thing I ever heard. Mental illness like Britney's presents itself in your mid to late 20's. Breaking up with Justin had nothing to do with the start of it.

    No friggin' way. Wasn't she already separated from Kevin when she lost her mind? And hair. She'd been away from Justin for years at that point. Unbelievable. I thought she was on meth by the condition of her complexion at that time. And the erraticness.

    This is craycray! Like others said her and justin broke up years before! And she cheated on him! That is why he broke up with her! Wouldn't it have been the break-up of her marriage that drove her crazy? Especially being under 30, having two babies, and about to get a divorce?

    This is just lame of her and her lawyers to use Justin (who is very well liked in the public) to win her defense again Sam Lufti. Don't get me wrong, Sam Lufti is ridiculous and I hope they win, but COME on!

    her break up with just was the time where her unraveling began, it got progressively worse with every year, boyfriend/husband/major life issue, with all this going on i'm pretty sure there was some form of substance abuse. and some of the real bad drugs effs with your brain chemistry. that means life long affects. whatever happened is very sad. she was so beautiful and fun.

    This is bullshit because it was even stated in her "for the record" documentary. With Justin she has had no problem with the break up. It was Kevin that she had the hardest time with which she then shaved her head. I love Britney to death and met her on her femme fatale tour. I just think time will tell. Like Britney says "she's not THAT innocent"

    Even though the breakdown happened years after she broke up with Justin, I think it was a chain reaction. Any one in their right mind knows she was not A okay after Justin. She married that Jason guy, was partying with Paris Hilton. I mean the fact that she married a back up dancer (whose pregnant girlfriend was about to have their second child anyday) was a cry for help within itself and probably suggests mental issues! I don't know why people didn't see that. She never loved Kevin. That relationship gave her two kids and that's it. She even said she got married for the idea of it all. Does that sound like she was fine? No

    dear britney…FUCK OFF!!!

  14. Cookie says – reply to this


    I agree with all the chain reaction comments. This was just the start. I called it back then and I support it now. Things were already broken when she started dating Kevin (hello, why else would she have dated him…because he's the anti-timberlake). Things weren't good going into her relationship with Kevin and they just spiraled out of control after that.

    She ACTUALLY started acting different since he left her… (She married that guy for how many hours?) and i'm pretty sure she started dating Kevin because she felt alone without Justin… she looked different… i always knew this… :(

    It wasn't Justin's fault but it dud start after their breakup. Remember, Justin sold her out claiming he took her virginity and that she cheated on him. That destroyed Britney's image. Soon after she started wilding out with Colin Farrell and kissing Madonna. Then she married Jason in Vegas only to divorce him in hours. Soon after she started dating Kevin, the anti Justin. He was a bad boy and dancer. She married him for the idea of having a family and maintaining herself stable. When that didn't work out she felt helpless and turned to drugs and tabloids with Paris and Lindsay. Then she hooked up with lufti and shaved her head. Luckily she rehired her management team and they saved her. She could've been dead by now if it wasn't for them. I think that's why so many of us love her because we watched her grow and become the most famous female star of her era only to see her breakdown as well and then make a comeback.

    In for the record she said that Justin became part of that magnitude and that when he was gone and she didn't know what to do. It is not blaming Justin it is just that she loved him so much that she didn't know how to handle the break up and with all the attacks he would state about her probably brought her down more. After him she started sleeping with everyone and then she went to the first person who gave her that attention that she once had. After Kevin she says she had kids with him so she didn't know how to handle it she didn't know what to do. But all this made her stronger and it's sad that they need to publish all this in the public so the media can look down on her more.

    That break up was like a million years ago!! Build a bridge and get over it "brit brit". Besides you were married twice already! Stop digging your own crazy hole and let justin enjoy his marriage!

    I always thought her short lived 24 hour marraige and marraige to K.F. were a direct result of a nervous breakdown due to the breakup. It just kept spiraling downward. Time does not always heal all wounds. Thank God her family saw to it that she got the help she needed to finally put to rest the past devastations and move forward in a healthy manner.

    Wow, she was so fresh faced looking… So cute and pretty before! So sad. :( She has her pretty moments now depending on the makeup artist, hair stylist and lighting, but she was so hot back then!

  21. Guest says – reply to this


    What a wedding gift, huh?

    But I don't feel too bad for him cause it's obviously out of context and he's 5000 miles away enjoying his new marriage. This shouldn't even be a blip on his radar. Besides he's traded on her name thru out the years and used it for laughs tons of times. He's never made it a point to disassociate from her so he can't complain too much.

  22. @v@ says – reply to this


    I agree on the chain reaction thing. He did sell her out, and it seemed incredibly mean at the time. It might also make more sense if the context for the cheating were known. I got the sense that she really loved him, but messed up for some backazzwards reason simply from a lack of knowing what else to do. She was uber inexperienced but a world wide star.

    Re: @v@ – He was her first love and real relationship. She was snapped after the break up. Her image was ruined and she really changed a lot after that.
