According to the website Betty Confidential and also FOX News, it seems that Britney may have a little diet pill problem. Reports from someone in the Britney camp says that her dad recently caught Britney taking diet pills and washed down with Red Bull prior to a recent performance.
The source of the story is quoted as saying, "Britney was definitely trying to get high by taking too many diet pills and energy drinks. Jamie thinks the combination of the two is making her whacked-out and, causing her to lash out in weird angry rampages."
No? Our Britney lash out? I find that hard to believe. She always seems so calm. Anyway, what this shows me is that even if the report is 100% true, is that Jamie is actively watching out for Britney. I know the cynic in me says he is doing it for money, but he is her dad and her Conservator and a Conservator is supposed to intervene and stop her from doing what she is alleged to have been doing.
I only took diet pills once and I talked a million miles an hour for about 20 hours and then passed out for the next 20. I'm not sure I felt high and probably would not use them if that were my ultimate purpose. My guess is that if she really did take the pills is that they help her through the performance with energy. I also think the fact there are lots of sites that continue to say she is heavy might play a part in it. She isn't heavy, but if she reads that, I could see her believing it and then wanting to do something about it. It is the same with anorexia and bulimia. Even if it isn't true you are fat, you think you are and some tabloid that is asserting that is going to cause a reinforcement of that image in the person targeted.
