Britney Spears' Parents Claim She's Mentally Incapable
KHQ.COM - It's been a long road back to the top for Britney Spears. The pop diva, so successful through the late 90's and much of the first decade of the new century, fell apart in 2008: at the beginning of that year, she was hospitalized and put on a mental hold, under the influence of drugs and a crippling relationship with ex-husband Kevin Federline and their children.
With the help of her parents -- who still have her under conservatorship -- she's rebuilt her career under a new manager, boyfriend Jason Trawick. But her ex-manager, Sam Lutfi, is less than pleased about how he's been portrayed during the journey back, and is suing Spears' mom, Lynne, for defamation. Spears' parents claimed that Lufti used to drug Spears and harassed her post-breakdown.
Lufti wants his one-time client to testify in the court case, but according to Billboard, her parents are claiming that she is "mentally incapable" of doing so. CLICK HERE TO READ MORE
