Britney Spears’ former bodyguard and “mystery witness” in her child custody case Tony Barretto has apparently sold his story to News of the World, telling about how the singer nearly overdosed on a date with her rehab pal Howie Day, was constantly flashing the staff, made outlandish diva demands of those she’s employed by, and babbled in strange languages around her sons Sean Preston and Jayden James. “I gave evidence to the court because Britney is out of control and needs help,” Barretto explained. “I have done this for her children. She’s not a good mother. She has mental problems. With her drug and booze issues, her home is no place for kids to be raised.”
