We all remember Britney Spears‘ infamous 2007 breakdown that saw her shave off all her hair and attack a paparazzo’s car with an umbrella. But while those dark days occurred nearly ten years ago, the after effects are still being felt!

In the latest chapter of the long legal battle with her one-time manager Sam Lufti – he claims the singer owes him unpaid commission – shocking new details about that messy period in Britney’s life have been revealed!!

According to TMZ, new documents claim Britney was a drug user from 2007-2008 and that the night she lost custody of her children, Jayden and Preston, her drug use was so bad she slept in a car park!

The documents, which were filed in 2015, state Sam worked for Britney when she was “struggling with drug abuse” and that “he was one of the few people she trusted”. At the time she was estranged from her parents, in the midst of a divorce and child custody battle and Sam claims he agreed to manage Britney as long as she stopped using drugs and even let him use drug sniffing dogs to check she was clean!

It’s also been revealed that he enforced bizarre rules for the paparazzi who followed her everywhere and they treated like “free bodyguards”, such as not following her onto private property and keeping a car space free for her!

When their working relationship ended, Britney’s parents turned the tables on Sam. They painted him as a shady character who exploited the troubled singer when she was at her most vulnerable, accusing him of giving her drugs and isolating her!

And now he’s back!
