According to her former manager Sam Lutfi, Britney Spears took a large amount of amphetamines on the night that she was taken on a 5150 hold. Back in January 2008, Britney locked herself and her son Jayden in a bathroom and refused to turn him over to her ex-husband Kevin Federline. It was at that time that she was taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center and placed on a 5150 hold for 72 hours.
Sam’s lawyer says that she was on a large amount of amphetamines at the time. He claimed that Britney had a prescription for the drug filled and was taking six to eight pills early on in the day. Later, he claimed that she took even more pills. TMZ reports:
Lutfi’s lawyer also said he tried to get Britney to meet with a psychiatrist 2 days before she was 5150’d, but Brit refused.
And there’s this … during Britney’s disastrous appearance on the MTV Awards in 2007, Lutfi felt she was such a mess she shouldn’t do it, because she was overweight and didn’t rehearse, but Britney wouldn’t hear it.
