Latest in the Brit saga


Both sides of the KFed/Brit custody battle will be back in court tomorrow for an emergency hearing based on the above photo still, captured by TMZ on video. You think the car’s moving, or she just happens to be in a prong of paparazzi? Come on, it’s Britney: your best guess would be narrowed down to the worst possible decision a human can make. She’s holding her phone in front of her face and appears to be texting, but that’s not the worst of it. The video is damning evidence of Britney running a red light Thursday evening through a busy intersection, with both kids in back and the court-appointed monitor in the front seat, looking like she’s holding on for dear life (though hunched over).


Further complicating matters, one of Brit’s drug tests came back false positive. Reports TMZ:

“TMZ has learned Britney Spears will now say her false positive drug test may have been caused by her inhaler, which she uses for asthma.

Sources connected with Spears told TMZ yesterday that the drug that may have caused the positive was Provigil, used to treat narcolepsy. But TMZ did some digging and found Provigil would not show up on a court-ordered drug test.

Now the same source says the drug that showed up may have been Albuterol, an asthma drug. But, again, we checked and Albuterol is not an amphetamine, and the class of drug that showed up on the test was an amphetamine.

K-Fed’s lawyer, Mark Vincent Kaplan, will press the issue tomorrow in court.”

Again, THOSE ARE NOT AMPHETAMINES. Adderall and Dexedrine are. The physical effects of long-term abuse, according to Wikipedia, include: “tremor, restlessness, changed sleep patterns, anxiety and increase in pre-existing anxiety, poor skin condition, hyperreflexia, tachypnea, gastrointestinal narrowing, and weakened immune system. Fatigue and depression can follow the excitement stage. Erectile dysfunction, heart problems, stroke, and liver, kidney and lung damage can result from prolonged abuse. When insufflated, amphetamine can lead to a deterioration of the lining of the nostrils.”

Psychological effects of long-term abuse include “insomnia, mental states resembling schizophrenia, aggressiveness (not associated with schizophrenia), addiction or dependence with accompanying withdrawal symptoms, irritability, confusion, and panic. Chronic and/or extensively-continuous use can lead to amphetamine psychosis, which causes delusions and paranoia, but this is uncommon when taken as prescribed. The abuse of an amphetamine is highly addictive, and, with chronic abuse, tolerance develops very quickly. Withdrawal, although not physiologically threatening, is an unpleasant experience (including paranoia, depression, difficult breathing, dysphoria, gastric fluctuations and/or pain, and lethargia). This commonly leads chronic users to re-dose amphetamine frequently, explaining tolerance and increasing the possibility of addiction.”

Maybe they should bring these compiled check lists into court, Britney suffers from more than one of these symptoms. There’s been so many diagnoses of her mental state, all by “doctors who haven’t treated Britney”. Truthfully, she falls into many categories of mental illness but a good doctor can make the appropriate diagnosis. Especially if she ever hopes to correct those gastric fluctuations.
