Travis Barker has had to battle his fair share of demons since barely surviving the plane crash that killed four others back in 2008, and although he's now drug-free and changed his lifestyle to ensure his health is his top priority, he is still unable to fly.
Which sadly means that he simply cannot join his blink182 bandmates for their upcoming tour dates in Australia.
He posted the following message on Facebook last night:

Ah, yes, because this guy, of all people, has any business calling others a liar!
Which is apparently exactly what Sam Lufti has done in response to the recent claims made by Britney Spears' former nanny!
As we reported, Leah Frand recently spoke out about the accusations made by Lufti in court about the pop star hiding crystal meth in her home, and revealed that while she worked for her during the same period as him in 2008, she never saw any signs of drug abuse….and that the 'manager' was nothing but a desperate weirdo who would drive anyone crazy!
However, Lufti is now biting back, and is reportedly assuring friends that Leah is not speaking the truth, as there was no way she would have known about any drugs in the home. According to Lufti, she was fired after

All the more proof that everything that comes out of this wretched man's mouth is absolute BULL SHIZ!
Sam Lufti caused quite a stir when he took the stand for his lawsuit against Jamie and Lynne Spears for battery and libel and claimed that not only was Britney Spears addicted to meth during her 2008 mental breakdown, but that the reason she shaved her head was to hide evidence of the drug abuse!
However, the pop princess' former nanny Leah Frand - who lived at Brit's home for nearly six months and was around for the head-shaving and up until her subsequent hospitalization - is putting the 'manager' on BLAST by denying that she saw ANY drug use whatsoever…and claiming that the guy is just a straight up CREEP!

Poor Britney Spears just cannot catch a break, can she?
The pop sensation has turned out to be a more than competent judge on this season of The X Factor, but despite proving her critics wrong, new reports are surfacing that claim that due to concern from the reality competition's producers regarding the upcoming live shows, they are requesting that FOX add an additional time delay to the already behind live feed!

The cavalry is en route!
Hit-and-runs, a DUI, photos of possible drug use — Amanda Bynes is in the midst of a massive and public downward spiral.

Last week, the NY Times broke a story suggesting stimulant abuse among high school students was nearing an all-time high.
They alleged kids at high-pressure schools abuse Ritalin and Adderall to improve SAT scores, raise GPAs, and ultimately get into more competitive universities.
As alarming as this degree of prescription drug abuse seems, there is debate as to whether the Times’ numbers are entirely accurate or indicative of the population as a whole.
Regardless of the percentages, the dangers of misusing stimulants as "study boosters" is very real.
Kids who snort or overuse them could develop symptoms like depression, psychosis, and heart irregularities — and the long-term dangers of are still relatively unknown!
Students even admit these study stimulants occasionally act as gateway drugs — with painkillers and heroin possibly coming down the line!
We’re not sure there is an easy solution here but perhaps society is putting unrealistic pressure on its children to succeed at too young of an age!
