Britney Spears’ pal Sam Lutfi says the singer’s mental problems stem from her parents, Lynne and Jamie.
“Oh boy, her family is crazy!” Lutfi told Usmagazine.com in a telephone interview Thursday, the same day the singer was taken to UCLA Medical Center. On Friday, Spears’ parents hit L.A. Superior Court to seek to control their daughter’s medical treatments.
“It’s funny because that’s what the doctors say when they meet the family,” he added. “They always come back and say, ‘You know, [her problems] are inherited, right?’
“It’s just so sad. It’s shared equally from both of her parents.”
He told Us the singer doesn’t “trust anything that her family says? Not a g—-n thing.”
He said they have tried to stage multiple interventions and that Thursday’s move was “at least their fourth” attempt.
When the singer heard Lynne had arrived Sunday night, Lutfi said Britney asked him, ‘Is my mom really here?’ I said, ‘Yeah, she’s here.’ And she’s like, ‘Oh great, you know they’re up to something.’
“They show up to the house like hillbillies, texting me,” Lutfi continued. “I find out that they’re outside, and they go, ‘You better let me in the gate, you ass.’ So I go, to Britney, ‘Your parents are here, let them come in and yell at you and scream at you. If anything else goes on, I’ll throw you in my car and take you out of here.’ She said, ‘OK, fine, baby.’
“I let them in. Instead of going to see how Britney is, they come bouncing through the doors. They scream at me, ‘Why the f—k are you talking to Barbara Walters?’ I swear to God that’s all they were saying.
“The dad pushed me in the chest and said, ‘Get the f—k out of here.’
“The dad gave up and then the mom tried to talk to her, but Lynne was like, ‘I gotta get my beauty sleep, I gotta get my nails done, I gotta do my hair.’ It was just so sick. We made the mom stay.”
Lutfi said the singer suffers from “mixed state bipolar” and has had it for “roughly five years.” (A person suffering from “mixed state bipolar” experiences symptoms of mania and depression at the same time.)
He said he has told the singer, “‘Britney, do you see why people think you are crazy? Look at your mother and look at your father.’”
