In Star magazine’s upcoming expose, in which Hollywood bodyguards spill the dirt on their most famous clients, a bodyguard for Britney Spears says the singer is still abusing laxatives and forcing herself to vomit after meals to stay slim. If you recall, last year during the heyday of her time with Sam Lutfi, Britney was making multiple trips per week to drug stores to buy boxes and boxes of laxatives. Looks like that little habit is still going on, despite Britney’s claim that she got back in shape through exercise and eating healthy foods. The bodyguard quoted in the story also says there is a very good reason why Britney’s father, Jamie Spears, is still her court-appointed conservator: the woman is still having mental problems, despite her public image rehabilitation over the past few months.
For instance, although Britney’s gearing up for a comeback, she’s still a seriously sick girl who lives in a fear-filled fantasy world and is now in the grip of a dangerous eating disorder, the people who were paid to protect her. A source close to one of her bodyguards tells Star that her Brit’s diet consists mostly of “Taco Bell and turkey jerky washed down with Red Bull.”
And she often doesn’t keep it down.
“She throws up after meals, both at home and at restaurants,” says the insider, “and she isn’t very discreet about it. People around her think she’s bulimic.”
The pop star who has a history of battling that eating disorder, is also “taking diet pills,” according to another insider close to Britney’s employees. “They’re like diuretics. She has to go to the bathroom constantly. It just runs right through her. And everyone knows she still throws up when she’s eaten too much. You can smell it in the bathroom.”
First of all: Gross! And secondly: “People around her THINK she’s bulimic”?? Let’s see. She takes diet pills and laxatives and the bathroom smells like puke after she’s been in there. Are the “people around her” really that stupid?
I know we are all supposed to believe that Britney is all better now. But that recent Rolling Stone interview did nothing to convince me that this woman is capable of handling her life, career, or children without some kind of supervision. If this story is to be believed, she can’t even handle a meal. I think she’s just as messed up as ever, the only difference is that there’s someone to stop her from exhibiting it so publicly now. And the pressure on Britney is only going to increase as her CD debuts and her world tour starts.
