Police confirm investigation of alleged Britney drugging
Police in Los Angeles have confirmed they are investigating allegations that Britney Spears was drugged.
Britney’s former manager and friend, Sam Lufti, is under investigation by the Robbery Homicide division of the LAPD for supposedly drugging the troubled star.
Head of the enquiry, Police Captain Kyle Jackson, says the drugging claims ‘are being considered’ although an official investigation is not yet underway.
Jackson told the Associated Press: ‘The issues regarding Britney are being considered by the department to determine if laws have been violated. At this time we don’t know whether or not a formal investigation will be initiated.’
The allegations were made by Britney’s mother, Lynne Spears, who stated in recent court papers that Lufti had drugged her daughter and cut her home phone line.
The accusations made against the ex-manager lead to a restraining order against him, forbidding him from coming within 250 yards of Britney.
Meanwhile, the Britney saga continues with reports that her on-off boyfriend, Brit paparazzo Adnan Ghalib, has revealed to friends that Britney is expecting his child.
Speculation the star was pregnant came after magazines Life and Style and US Weekly commented on Britney’s stomach bulge.
To add insult to injury, Ghalib has reportedly just signed a tell-all deal with a British tabloid and will reveal what life is like with the erratic singer.
