Britney’s bodyguard says she is still bulimic and crazy

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.

    damn, just damn

    very sad…. but not surprising.

    you would have to be a complete idiot to think she is capable and competent and this point.

    i stick to my theory that she NEEDS to step out of the limelight and focus on her health (both physical and mental).

  3. Cinderella says:

    I predict another Britney meltdown in 2009 and it won’t be pretty.

  4. says:

    Poor thing. Bet she’s been misdiagnosed as bi-polar and is really a borderline personality disorder – they’re famous from going to one addiction to another in an attempt to find comfort.

  5. ff says:

    Why do people think eating disorders disappear with exercise and a ‘healthy’ diet? It’s not like having a cold, you know.

    I think she’d sink into a deep depression if she was out of the limelight.

  6. susie leigh says:

    Borderline Personality Disorder is particularly tragic because there’s no specific medication for it and people who have it don’t really respond to therapy.

  7. Holly says:

    I feel bad for her. This is too much too soon! I had PTSD, and know what its like to be better, but not all there yet. It’ll be a straw that breaks the camel’s back! They need to back off!

  8. JaundiceMachine says:

    I’ve lived with a certified BPD, susie, and I’m not sure if she’s Borderline, but it does occur to me that she has some sort of deeply imbedded personality disorder.

    Keeping her sedated on drugs is cop-out. She has real issues to work through (whether it be organic or circumstantial) and she shouldn’t be out promoting herself until she works through them.

    Hell, shoddy parenting and international superstardom got her brains scrambled in the first place – she is doing herself and the rest of the psychiatric community a disservice by prostituting herself out to save her image. I don’t know whether to be pissed off at Britney or her handlers.

  9. Cletus says:

    yeah, yeah… poor tragic britney. Boo-fucking-hoo. If she were a horse she’d already be glue.

  10. amanda says:

    Note: Diuretics are not Laxatives. Diuretics are “water pills,” which make you pee constantly to lose excess water weight. Laxatives are not.

  11. Ana says:

    I wonder what happened to the confidentitality (I’m sure I spelled that wrong)agreement that I’m sure he was forced to sign…..

  12. Granger says:

    Ana, my thoughts exactly. I take all of these silly stories that quote “sources” with a grain of salt. And in this case, it isn’t even a bodyguard they’re quoting — it’s a source CLOSE to one of her bodyguards. Rrrrrright. 🙄

  13. Lio says:

    OK enough with Brit Brit. i want to know what bodyguards are saying of J.Depp (is he the one who gets completly nude in his car ?!!! 😆 )

  14. Persistent Cat says:

    Yeah, I wanna know who steals from their friends.

  15. mollination says:

    Who knows how relevant this story is? It was a FORMER bodyguard, so how the hell does he know what’s going on right now?

    Also, once I read the extremely offensive and ignorant repsonse to Britney’s alleged bulimia of “First of all: GROSS!!” I knew immediately which tactless author wrote this post. Almost as disgraceful as this repulsive bodyguard.

    I truly hope for Britney’s sake that this is irrelevant old-news, and that she’s getting better. Bulimia doesn’t give you muscle tone, so I don’t think it’s fair to assume that she EITHER works out or has an eating disorder due to her improved appearance.

    Once again it becomes clear that nobody around this girl cares about her. Heartbreaking.

  16. pepper! says:

    i enjoy how this article was punctuated by a “how i lost 1 lb. per day” ad.

    nothing like staying on topic.

  17. Jinxy says:

    Well the court certainly doesn’t think she’s sane at all, her alcoholic, loser Father is her conservator – permanently. That was my first clue she’s still bat shit crazy. Some 8th grade, Louisiana backwater, alcoholic is better at managing millions than you? You are nuts. This is California where you can talk to God and keep your kids folks. Loon.

  18. Jenna says:

    I believe I’ll go with her having an eating disorder. There were quotes last year during her hospital stints as well as others who’ve stated she is a bulimic. Plus I think I’ve read somewhere she struggled with it even before the break up with Justin and Kevin.

  19. Kim says:

    Clearly Britney is being kept in check by prescription. She has started the upward ascent that is exactly similar to one she had before her downward spiral. I wish her well but I see another meltdown in her future.

  20. maria says:

    Of course, she’s still sick! She was diagnosed with bipolar disorder. IT is not something that goes away overnight. She will always need medication. I am not a Britney fan, but why can’t people just let her live her life? 😐 she’s trying to get it all together.

  21. Syko says:

    maria, I’m just curious as to how you know she was diagnosed as bipolar? I’m not coming down on you, I just have wondered what her diagnosis is and I’ve been watching out for it, but have never seen anything but speculation that she’s bipolar. I’ve never heard a diagnosis at all.

  22. geronimo says:

    Agreeing 100% with dr.grrl (for about the 5th time on these recent posts.) Only eternal optimists (or fools) would believe that Brit is even remotely recovered from her ‘breakdown’. It’s pathetic that her management are enabling this very premature return to performing. Back on the gravy train…

  23. rabidparadise says:

    Just an aside..I don’t think her Father manages her money. Her brother Brian and a team of accountants & lawyers take care of all of that. Her manager takes care of getting the album ready to promote & her choreographers, makeup artists & hair stylists take care of getting HER ready to promote.
    Her Father’s ONLY job is making sure she’s healthy mentally AND physically. I want to say that this story is crap because I do admire the performer..but if there’s even a hint of truth to it, then ya…another breakdown is coming, and fast.

  24. dr.grrl says:

    LOL geronimo!!

    great minds!!…..

  25. Glue says:

    She still looks sad and unwell. She’s a shadow of her former self and unless she develops any natural desire to perform, she’ll continue to be miserable. Maybe Britney should do something completely different with her life and be a happy person. Life gives us lessons and unless we follow our hearts and take on new roads, we’ll just keep circling in misery.

  26. Jeanne says:

    It’s a shame the poor girl just can’t take a break away for awhile instead of having to perform again like a circus poodle.

  27. She may be messed up but that’s no reason for her bodyguards to bed so unprofessional – things like that should be kept confidential
